Prinkle Singh's dreams to share the same stage with her brother as the title winners were squashed when her elder brother, Sumit Pal Singh, lost in the final of the boy's Under-14 category of the CLTA-AITA Championship Series tennis tournament at CLTA Stadium, on Friday. Earlier, Prinkle had defeated Vaibhavi Deshmuk of Maharasthra 6-1, 6-3 to win the girl's Under-14 singles title.
The victory would have been sweeter had the Singh siblings won the Under-14 titles in their respective categories, but Paramveer Bajwa had other plans. Paramveer, in a power-packed performance, made short work of Sumitpal and defeated him 6-2, 6-1, to walk away with the title.
Meanwhile, Paramveer looked on course for a straight second title when he entered the final of the boy's Under-18 singles title. He defeated Gautam Anand of Uttar Pradesh 6-0, 6-1, in the semi-finals while Ranjeet Singh, his opponent in the final, got the better of Vishnu Prasad and shocked the top seed 7-5, 6-0, in a exciting encounter.
In the girl's Under-18 category, Rajbir Kaur defeated Vineeta Singh 6-1, 6-2, in the semi-finals and will now play against Mihika Yadav, who defeated Vaibhavi Deshmukh 6-1, 6-0, for the title.
