Ankita Raina gave further proof of her conviction in her abilities as she tackled Karman Kaur Thandi efficiently for a 7-5, 7-5 victory in the quarterfinals of the $25,000 ITF women’s tennis tournament in Navi Mumbai on Thursday. In a battle of wits that lasted two hours and eight minutes, the 24-year-old Ankita bounced back from being down 1-3 in both the sets to force the victory in straight sets. In both the sets, the 19-year-old Karman was unable to force the tie-break while serving at 5-6. Karman converted two of seven breakpints, while Ankita capitalised on four of 11 breakpoints to swing the match in her favour. In the semifinals, fifth seeded Ankita will play Diana Marcinkevica of Latvia who put out second seed Polina Monova of Russia in a second set tie-break. Ankita has a 1-1 win-loss record against the 25-year-old Diana. In the doubles semifinals, Pranjala Yadlapalli in partnership with Tamara Zidansek of Slovenia survived two matchpoints to beat the top seeds Olga Doros
