The women’s singles final was a contrasting match, an engaging battle which witnessed plenty of lengthy rallies. Lydia who has been in fine form this season edged out Pranjal Chimulkar in an extremely hard fought match, winning 21-11, 11-21, 21-19. Lydia later teamed up with Yasmin Sayed to register a 21-16, 21-19 win over Anushka Kuvelkar / Pranjal Chimulkar and capture her double crown. Sanquelim boy, Karan Dhavaskar had plenty of reasons to smile as he went on to win the Mixed doubles title, partnering Anushaka Kuvelkar. For Anushka, it was her third mixed doubles title this season, thereby making it a clean sweep for her in this category. In Men’s doubles, top seeds Tejan Fallary and Sunny Sawant justified their top billing with a confident 21-15, 21-10 win over second seeds Floyd Araujo and Fredrick Fernandes to clinch the title.
