Indian women’s doubles pair of Tanisha Crasto and Ashwini Ponnappa on Sunday secured their second Super 100 title with a straight game win over Chinese Taipei’s Sung Shuo Yun and Yu Chien Hui at the Guwahati Masters in Guwahati. The second seeded Indian combination, which finished runners-up at the Syed Modi International Super 300 tournament last week in Lucknow, beat the world no. 81 combination 21-13 21-19 in a 40-minute final. This was the third title for the Indian pair, which had clinched the Abu Dhabi Masters Super 100 and Nates International Challenge this year.
Ashwini, 34, and 20-year-old Tanisha started playing together only in January and were part of India’s Asian Games squad which competed in Hangzhou, China in September-October.
