Renne Singla, and Laalitya Kalluri upset seeded players to enter the second round of the qualifiers for the USD 15K KSLTA ITF World Womens Tennis Tour Championship event here on Sunday. While Renne sent the fourth seed Smriti Bhasin home with a 6-4, 7-5 win, Laalitya overcame sixth seed Niditra Rajmohan in three sets 6-1, 2-6, 10-6.

Renne, the 17-year-old from Haryana, depended on her deep returns and waited for her older opponent to commit mistakes and soon raced to a 3-0 lead. Smriti bounced back by winning the next two games. However, Renne returned the favour to lead 5-2. Serving for the set, Renne not only lost her serve but the next game as well before serving out for the set 6-4.

The second set was even more keenly fought. After the rivals held their serve for the first four games, they broke each other twice, and once again Renne was serving for the match at 5-3. The 19-year-old Telangana girl Smriti then restored parity by the 10th game only to lose her serve in the next game for Renne to complete the formalities.

In the other match, Maharashtra’s Laalitya was reduced to a mute spectator in the first set after winning the first game as her experienced opponent won the rest of the six games in a hurry. The second set was almost a replay of the first with Laalitya winning five games in a row from 2-2. In the decider, Laalitya emerged as a less error-prone player to make an entry into the final qualifying round. Both players struggled with their serves and sent down a number of double faults.

The winners of the second round will get an entry into the main draw which begins on Tuesday.
