Orfi and Singh Down Top Seeds For Victory

Egypt’s Amina Orfi and home favourite Abhay Singh took the titles at the 4th HCL SRFI Indian Tour – Jodhpur Leg, with both beating the respective top seeds in the finals.

Orfi came into the tournament as the No.8 seed, and the 15-year-old was yet to reach a final on Tour. However, she did claim the World Junior Championship crown earlier this year.

After receiving a bye through the opening day’s action, the young Egyptian started her campaign with a dominant 25-minute performance against Sunita Patel, dropping just eight points in the entire contest.

A come-from behind four-game victory over No.4 seed Tanvi Khanna followed in the quarter finals, as Orfi regrouped after losing the first game 14-12. She then got the better of No.2 seed Cheng Nga Ching in the semis, winning in straight games in just 25 minutes for the second time in three days.

In her first final on Tour, the 15-year-old was pitted against the tournament’s top seed, Aira Azman. However, that did not make a difference to the young Egyptian, as she came through in straight games to claim her first Tour title, and to become one of the youngest ever winners on Tour.

She was joined in the winner’s circle by Indian Abhay Singh, who delighted the home crowd to take his fifth title of the year. He came in as the No.2 seed for the competition, and like Orfi, received a bye on the opening day.

He then did not drop a game en route to the final. Wins came against Malaysia’s Wee Ming Hock in the second round, compatriot Harinder Pal Singh Sandhu in the quarters and another Malaysian, in No.4 seed Ong Sai Hung.

In the final, Singh came up against former World No.14 Zahed Salem, and he took a tight first game 13-11. However, the Egyptian fought back to win the second, but from there on, the No.2 seed was able to just keep his nose in front in both games. He took them 11-9 and 11-8, respectively, to win in four and to secure his fifth Tiel of 2022.
Round 1

Orfi Into First Tour Final

Amina Orfi in action in Jodhpur

15-year-old Amina Orfi is into her first Tour final, after downing the No.2 seed in the last four of the 4th HCL SRFI Indian Tour – Jodhpur Leg on Sunday.

The reigning World Junior Champion came into this tournament as the No.8 seed, and in the semi-finals, she took on No.2 seed Cheng Nga Ching for a place in the final. The young Egyptian won in straight games, spending just 23 minutes on court, to reach a first Tour final.

She will now take on Malaysia’s Aira Azman, the top seed for the event, after the World No.92 defeated India’s Akanksha Salunkhe in a four-game contest. The Malaysian took the opening two games, but saw the home favourite fight back to win the third on a tie-break. Azman regrouped, though, and won the fourth 11-8 to advance to the final.

The men’s final in Jodhpur will be contested between the event’s top two seeds. Egypt’s Zahed Salem, the former World No.14, came from a game down to defeated India’s Velavan Senthilkumar in the last four. He lost the first 11-7, but then came through to win the next three games to book his spot in the final.

He will take on another Indian, in No.2 seed Abhay Singh, in Monday’s finale in Jodhpur. The home favourite dropped just 13 points in a confident performance, which saw him defeat No.4 seed Ong Sai Hung in just 25 minutes.

The finals of the 4th HCL SRFI Indian Tour – Jodhpur Leg will take place Monday, November 21 on the Lawns of Umaid Palace Bhawan. Amina Orfi and Aira Azman will battle it out for the women’s crown, before Abhay Singh and Zahed Salem do battle for the men’s title.
