Rarely do the winning and losing outfits in a sporting competition end up with a smile on their face. Thanks to the unique format of Ultimate Table Tennis (UTT), the same was seen on Tuesday night at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex.

Bengaluru Smashers defeated Goa Challengers 9-6 in both teams final league game. Smasher’s victory means it must rely on the outcome of the final league match between U Mumba TT and Puneri Paltan TT to qualify for the semi-finals. Goa Challengers, on the other hand, is assured of a place in the last four.

Manika, Jeet stands out

Despite Goa’s joy, the night was of Bengaluru Smashers. While each of the five Bengaluru paddlers playing in the tie played their part, it was Manika Batra and Jeet Chandra that stood out. Manika showed her command over T. Reeth Rishya after registering a clean sweep against her training partner in Hyderabad.

Incidentally, Reeth’s husband Sanil Shetty, the only Bengaluru Smashers player not to feature in the tie, cheered on Manika as she extended the lead to 5-1 after Kirill Gerassimenko beat southpaw Alvaro Robles in the opening tie.

When Manika and Gerassimenko lost the mixed doubles to Reeth and Harmeet Desai, Jeet produced a stunner against Harmeet. After a heavy defeat to Harmeet India’s highest ranked paddler at number 62 in Tuesday’s update at a WTT event in Lagos last month, a bespectacled Jeet gave his team a glimmer of hope.

Riding high on his backhand topspins, World No. 237 Jeet surprised Harmeet. When Harmeet won the last game at gold point, Goa knew that Suthasini Sawettabut had to win at least two games against Natalia Bajor. And the Thai girl, number 39 in the world, made a strong comeback against her Polish opponent in an entertaining duel dominated by rallies on both flanks.

The result: Goa Challengers lost to Bengaluru Smashers 6-9 (Alvaro Robles lost to Kirill Gerassimenko 11-3, 8-11, 5-11; T. Reeth Rishya lost to Manika Batra 5-11, 5-11, 7-11; Sai lost to Jeet Chandra 7-11, 7-11, 11-10 while Suthasini Sawettabut defeated Natalia Bajor 7-1 1 , 11-5, 11-7).

Match schedule Wednesday: Chennai Lions vs Dabang Delhi TTC (7.30pm).

The ranking: Goa Challengers 36 points (5 ties); Chennai Lions 35 (4); Bengaluru Smashers 35 (5); Dabang Delhi TTC 33 (4); U Mumbai TT 28 (4); Puneri Paltan TT 28 (4).
