Kolkata girl Rituparna proved too good for the defending champion to win 21-14, 21-7 to add the U-19 national title to the U-13 and U-17 national crowns she had won in the past. She completed a double crown by also bagging the girls doubles title with J. Meghana.

Rituparna Das ended G. Ruthvika Shivani's hopes of a second consecutive double crown with a straight games hammering in the U-19 girls singles final while second seed Aditya Joshi defeated Kerala's Arun George to lift the U-19 boys title at the 38th Junior National Badminton Championships on Thursday.Rituparna Das

Kolkata girl Rituparna proved too good for the defending champion to win 21-14, 21-7 to add the U-19 national title to the U-13 and U-17 national crowns she had won in the past. She completed a double crown by also bagging the girls doubles title with J. Meghana.

Rituparna never allowed her opponent to get a foot-hold in the match. She was deceptive at the net and came up with some timely drops to tackle the reach of her lanky opponent, who had earlier got the better of Maharashtra's Karishma Wadkar in the U-17 final.
Karishma, playing in her maiden national final, managed to push defending champion Ruthvika in the first game but a few unforced errors cost her dearly in the U-17 girls singles final.

In the boy's U-19 final, Arun began on a positive note but once Joshi got his rhythm going, it was a one-way traffic. The boy from Madhya Pradesh kept Arun away from the net and used his big smash to good effect to kill the rallies and pocket the match 18-21, 21-12, 21-14 in 48 minutes.

In the U-17 boys singles final S. Daniel Farid ended the dream run of B.R. Sankeerth 21-11, 21-14.
