Anahat claimed the initial game with a score of 11-7, but Elhammamy staged a comeback, winning the next two on tiebreaks with scores of 13-11 and 12-10. The Delhi native fought back in the fourth game, securing an 11-5 victory to push the match to a decider. The fifth game remained closely contested, with Elhammamy ultimately prevailing 11-9. In the boys’ under-15 category, Aryaveer Dewan, the reigning US Junior Open champion, secured the third position. Despite a 3-1 loss to Egyptian top seed Philopater Saleh in the semifinals, Dewan rebounded to claim third place in the playoff.

In the under-13 girls’ quarterfinals, Aadya Budhia, a promising talent, narrowly lost 3-2 to the top-seeded American, Vivienne Sze. Anahat, on the other hand, achieved a remarkable feat by securing the Under-19 crown at the Scottish Junior Open in the previous month. This accomplishment marked the culmination of a spectacular 2023 for her, during which she achieved a double victory in both the under-19 and senior National championships. Additionally, Anahat, alongside Abhay Singh, clinched the bronze medal in mixed doubles at both the Asian Games and the inaugural Asian Mixed Doubles Championships.
