Young Indian shuttler Tanvi Sharma defeated Wang Pei Yu of Chinese Taipei in straight games to clinch the Bonn International, a BWF Future Series event, women's singles title tournament, in Bonn, Germany, on Saturday.

In a contest that lasted a little over half an hour, Tanvi, ranked 432nd in the world, registered a 21-19, 22-20 victory.

The 15-year-old Tanvi from Punjab, who shot to fame after clinching a gold medal for the Indian women's team at the Badminton Asia Team Championships in Selangor, Malaysia, in February, came from behind in the final set to secure the win over Pei Yu.

Tanvi had advanced to the final after her opponent, Peng Yu Wei of Chinese Taipei, retired mid-way after failing to score a point in the first game. Tanvi had won the opening game 21-0.

However, there was disappointment for the Indian women’s doubles pairing of Srinidhi Narayanan and Radhika Sharma, who lost to the Turkish pair of Yasemen Bektas and Zehra Erdem 21-17, 21-10 in a one-sided contest in the semifinal.

In men’s doubles, Prakash Raj and Gouse Sheik went down to to the Dutch combination of Noah Haase and Dyon van Wijlick 21-19, 21-16 in the semifinal.
