Dhruv Kapila and Tanisha Crasto resumed their winning streak on day one of the Yonex-Sunrise 85th Senior National Badminton Championships, defeating Vanlalringngheta Joseph/Laldingpull Ralte 21-5, 21-7 at the R. G. Baruah Sports Complex in Guwahati.

The renowned national championships are being conducted in Assam by the Badminton Association of India (BAI) after four years. Dhruv and Tanisha had won the Yonex Sunrise Odisha Masters 2023 only three days before.

Their round of 64 triumph against Joseph and Ralte in 18 minutes says everything about their confidence and domination. In round two, Dhruv and Tanisha will play Abdul Rahman Syed and Mamaikya Lanka.

Tanvi Sharma, the silver medalist in Badminton Asia’s U17 and U15 Junior Championships in October 2023, easily defeated Tanya Hemanth in the women’s singles match. Tanvi defeated her opponent in a round of 128 match that lasted 30 minutes, 21-16, 21-11.

The 14-year-old was tested in the first game but fought back strong in the second to retain her lead and earn victory. Tanvi will face Shreya Lele of Gujarat, who defeated Amolika Singh after an hour-long fight to win 13-21, 21-14, 30-28.

Last year’s runner-up at the Syed Modi International, when she lost to PV Sindhu in the final, Malvika Bansod defeated Mayuri Barman 21-6, 21-16

Meanwhile, in the men’s singles match, Ayush Shetty, the bronze medalist at the BWF 2023 World Junior Championships, found it more difficult to win. In a 43-minute match against Adheep Gupta, Ayush emerged victorious with a 22-20, 21-17 victory.

Ayush will face Neer Nehwal in the round of 64, who overcame Joseph Vanlalringngheta 21-9, 21-13 in the opening round. Sameer Verma, who won bronze at the 2011 BWF World Junior Championships, breezed through the men’s singles round of 128 against Aditya Mondal.

The 29-year-old shuttler from Madhya Pradesh defeated Mondal in 31 minutes with a 21-11, 21-13 triumph.

Verma’s next opponent will be Meiraba Maisnam Luwang. Dhruv Negi, BAI’s U19 top-ranked player, needed only 21 minutes to defeat Prem Singh Chouhan 21-7, 21-11.

In the opening game, Negi did not give Chouhan any chances as he raced to seize the lead. Chouhan, on the other hand, resisted in the second game, fighting for every point until the two players drew even at 10-10.

Negi subsequently grabbed control of the match, winning the second game 21-11 to set up a round-of-64 showdown with Orijit Chahila.
