The top two seeds Tyrone Pereira and Vikrant Ninave strolled into the quarter-final round of the Boys’ under-17 singles event of the CCI-Greater Mumbai District Badminton Championship 2018, jointly organized by the Cricket Club of India (CCI) and the Greater Mumbai Badminton Association (GBMA).

The number one seed Tyrone did not have to push hard and played at a relaxed pace against Vedant Shrivastav and still managed to cruise to a 15-10, 15-10 victory in a prequarter-final match at the CCI courts on Monday.

The second-seeded Vikrant, who stepped on the court after Tyrone, also enjoyed an easy outing against Krish Thakur 15-12, 15-13 and he, too, did have to stretch himself as he completed a facile 15-12, 15-13 victory to also advance to the last eight round.

Earlier, Tyrone survived a first-round scare as he came from behind to overcome Ainoor Khan 13-15, 15-7, 15-9. In other hard-found matches, Vedant Shrivastav played well to defeat Julian Korda 15-13, 7-15, 15-8 and Diyan Jain showed excellent fighting qualities to score a 15-6, 14-15, 15-13 win against Aaditya Chaudhary and advance to the second round.

In Girls’ under-13 second-round matches, top seed Taarini Suri easily defeated Aarya Mujumdar 15-1, 15-1 and second seed Nayshaa Batoye outplayed Ananya Shah winning at 15-2, 15-1.

In the Boys under-13 singles second round encounters, the number one seed Shaswat Kumar overcame Viraj Bhiwandikar 15-5, 15-5 and second seed Vajra Mainkar proved too good for Vidit Bohra and romped to a 15-1, 15-7 win.
