Bajwa enters quarters without breaking a sweat

Paramveer Bajwa, the top seed in the boy's Under-16 category, was hardly tested as he cruised into the quarter-finals in the St Stephen's School AITA Championship Series held at CLTA Stadium in Sector 10 on Tuesday. Looking unstoppable, Paramveer made short work of Harjasleen Singh, 9-1, in their pre-quarterfinal encounter. So dominant was Bajwa in the match that he just lost a game and hit some thundering forehands.

However, Sumitpal Singh was stretched by Rahul Seth and after lots of hard work managed to prevail over his opponent, 9-8(3), in the tie-breaker.

Meanwhile, Prinkle Singh moved to the quarter-finals of girl's U-12 and U-16 events. Top seed Bhavya Wadhawan outplayed Tanmay Patnaik, 9-3, to move to quarter-finals.
