On a cold and windy night, Girnar were too hot for Udaigiri as they registered their first win of the
pool stage. Matchday 1 of the new semester had provided a couple of entertaining and high scoring
clashes, and a sizeable crowd from each hostel had assembled at the touchline. Girnar were clad in
their plain all-whites, whereas the Udai “Eagles” donned sky blue. Girnar showed the difference in
quality between the two sides right from kickoff, with a flurry of attacks with Udai just managed to
keep at bay. Aman misseda golden chance to put Girnar ahead in just the 3rd minute.
After having a dream run yesterday, defeating Aravali and Shivalik in consecutive matches and securing a quarter-final berth, Nilgiri’s luck finally ran out against Satpura. With this victory Satpura has qualified for the semis and has also booked a spot in the Group A for next year’s tournament.

It was a warm and quiet morning. The conditions seemed ideal for a good day of tennis. Saksham serves first but is facing the sun. He starts with a double fault. Definitely not the best way to begin a game. After that he serves a beauty down the T, an ace.
