Sensational Manika Batra wins historic singles gold in TT

Manika batra wins first ever women's singles table tennis gold for India at the Commonwealth Games

Manika Batra scripted history today and won first ever women’s singles table tennis gold for India at the Commonwealth Games, defeating world no. 50 Yu Mengyu of Singapore 4-0 in the final.

Earlier today, Batra showed that her crucial victory against world no. 4 Feng Tianwei in the team final was no fluke as the Indian edged out the Singaporean 4-3 in the women’s singles semifinals.

Besides guiding India to team gold, the 22-year-old from Delhi had also paired up with veteran Mouma Das to win the country’s maiden women’s double silver. They unfortunately lost to the Singaporean pairing of Tianwei Feng/Mengyu Yu in the finals in straight games to miss on a gold medal.

She can add a fourth medal to what already has been a dream campaign so far when she plays the mixed doubles bronze play-off tomorrow pairing with Sathiyan Gnanasekaran. They lock horns against Achanta Sharath Kamal and Mouma Das.
