Yashaswini Ghorpade was amongst the young player from India to clinch the title at the ongoing WTT Youth Contender Cuenca 2022. She came out as the best paddler in the U-19 girls category after defeating Sally Moyland 3-1.

After a slow start to the final, top seeded Ghorpade got the momentum on her side to clinch her first title of the year.

In the semi-final, she had to overcome patriot Suhana Saini. While Saini couldn't advance to the U-19 final, she made her mark in the U-17 final. Interestingly, Saini's opponent in the final was Giulia Takahashi, who was defeated by Moyland in the other U-19 semi-final.

Hoping to forget U-19 semi-final woes, both Saini and Takahashi met in the U-17 girls final. In the end, the Indian came on top after defeating her opponent convincingly in a 3-0 win. This was Saini's third WTT Youth Series title this year.

In the U-13 girls event, it was another Indian in Hansini Mathan who won the title as top seed after doling out a 3-0 defeat to opponent Mariana Rodriguez.
