In the National Tennis championship, top seed Suraj R Prabodh and second seed Bava Haddin have entered the men’s singles semifinal spot.

Nitin Kirtane made life tough for Prabodh before losing the quarter-final 3-6, 6-7. Bava also had to battle hard for the place before prevailing 7-5, 6-7, 6-4 over favourite Arjun Kadhe, who twisted his right ankle mid-way into the match but continued to resist his opponent from Kerala.

Bava will now lock horns with Dalwinder Singh, who ended the good run of talented qualifier Nitin Kumar Sinha with a marathon 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 win. The other men’s semifinal will be between Prabodh and Manish Sureshkumar, who rallied to knock out former champion Mohit Mayur 1-6, 6-1, 6-1.

In the women’s singles, top seed Zeel Desai reached the semifinals with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Shaikh Humera and now will face Bhuvana Kalva, who made a remarkable recovery to send packing sixth seed Prerna Bhambri 0-6, 6-4, 6-3.
