Sharath, Sathiyan win at Qatar Open IITF

Pennews

India's Achanta Sharath Kamal and G. Sathiyan made great impact when they defeated Japanese Koki Niwa, the No. 5 seed, and Yuya Oshima, the No.15 seed, respectively, to enter the singles pre-quarterfinals of the 2018 ITTF World Tour Platinum Qatar Open at Doha late Thursday evening.

If Sharath disposed of Koki Nowa 8-11, 11-9, 11-8, 14-12, 11-9 rather easily, the passage of Sathiyan saw a roller-coaster ride before the Indian prevailed over Oshima 6-11, 11-5, 2-11, 12-10, 10-12, 11-4, 11-8 in a tension-ridden Round of 32.
