This is the first gold medal in the National Games after seven years. Maharashtra and West Bengal won bronze medals in the men’s section, while Tamil Nadu and Telangana won bronze medals in the women’s section. In the men’s tournament, top seeds Gujarat have been in excellent form since the start of the tournament, so the question is whether Delhi can at least put up a tough fight. The hosts opened their state account in the medal table without losing a single rubber.

Thakkar dominated Sudhanshu Grover in the opening set

The only change Gujarat made after going to the final was that Manav Thakkar replaced skipper Harmeet Desai in the first singles match. Thakkar dominated Sudhanshu Grover in the opening set. Although the Delhi paddler fought hard in the next two sets, he could not overcome the former junior world No.1 and lost 11-3, 13-11, 14-12 in straight sets. Delhi hoped Pais Jain could repeat his feat in the semi-finals, but Harmeet Desai proved too much for them.

The Delhi player saved four match points to bid for a comeback, but the Gujarat captain was in no mood to back down and earned the first two extra points to give his side a 2-0 lead. After this, Manush Shah defeated Yashansh Malik to ensure Gujarat’s victory. This way the silver medalists in the previous edition got a chance to climb the podium on home soil.
