Delhi top seed Gaurav Nandrajog proved a handful for Amjad Khan and the hopes of a close final shattered as Nandrajog ran past the number two seed 11-6 11-4 11-5 to lift the men’s open title of the ISP-Sprite All India Squash Open Tennis Tournament on Wednesday.

In the boys under-17 category Pehlaj Bajwa of Chandigarh faced a threat from second seed Abhijit Malik before beating him 4-11 11-9 12-10 6-11 11-6. Delhi’s Janet Vidhi,who won the girls under-17 title after playing four games against Pankhuri Malhotra,dropped the third game and then fought back to clinch the issue with a 11-9 11-7 8-11 15-13 scoreline.

Delhi’s domination,however,was tamed by Rahil Fazelbhoy and Yohan Pandole, who won the boys under-15 and under-13 titles,respectively. Fazelbhoy beat Divij Singh 11-8 11-5 11-5 while Pandole won 11-7 11-5 11-6 against Junaid Muzaffar.
