Upset galore at North Zone TT ChampionshipNew Delhi: Some of the top seeds in the men section, including Nos. 5, 6 and 7 Anirban Ghosh, Sourav Chakraborty and Subhajit Saha fell by the wayside in the ongoing National Ranking (North Zone) Table Tennis Championships at the Thyagraj Stadium here today.

Joining their ranks from the women’s category were No. 3 Ankita Das, No. 4 Pooja Sahasrabuddhie, No. 6 Divya Deshpande, No. 7 Moushumi Paul and No. 8 Manika Batra. All of them failed to go beyond the first round.

Howoever, Soumyadeep Roy, who is seeded No. 1 here, made most of the absence of Soumyajit Ghosh and Anthony Amalraj, to progress to the quarterfinals. The PSPB player defeated Mohit Verma of Haryana 11-7, 11-9, 11-6, 11-7 and will now take on G. Sathyan, also of PSPB, in the quarters.

Similarly, top women seed Poulomi Ghatak sailed smoothly into the quarterfinals, beating Narasimha Priya in a gruelling encounter where the PSPB girl gave a good fight. Poulomi outlasted her rival in a 85-minute game to win 4-3 (11-5, 11-8, 6-11, 9-11, 20-22, 12-10, 11-9).

To begin win, Narasimha Priya palyed a superb wait-and-watch game. Despite losing the first two games, she would never give up and with great determination she took the third and fourth games. This was Poulomi pulled up her socks and wore her opponent out to take the next three for the match. Luckily, she will next meet qualifier Suthirtha Mukherjee in the quarterfinals. But Poulomi cannot afford to be slack if she aims at winning the singles title.

Delhi girl Manika Batra, whose form has seen a dip this season, yet again failed to meet the expectations and went down to qualifier Suthirtha Mukherjee from West Bengal qualifier Suthirtha Mukherjee. The West Bengal girl won 10-12, 11-5, 8-11, 11-9, 11-6, 11-8. Manika could not sustain the fine push-and-prod game of Suthirtha who controlled the match throughout.

Even Pooja had to struggle against Mamata Prabhu of Deena Bank. The latter showed exemplary courage in countering her better-known opponent from PSPB to topple her. Mamata won 11-8, 8-11, 11-5, 11-6, 12-14, 14-12.

The two PSPB girls, Divya and Moushumi, were having an off day today as they could not counter their rivals despite stretching a bit. Shreya Ghosh of RSPB defeated Divya 4-3 (11-3, 7-11, 8-11, 10-12, 6-11, 12-10, 11-8) while Moushumi lost to Delhi’s Neha Aggarwal. The Delhi girl won 11-8, 11-6, 11-8, 11-9. Neha will now take on in the quarterfinals No. 2 seed K. Shamini who accounted for Reeth Rishya of PSPB in the second round.
