India’s top tennis player Ankita Raina named Al Habtoor Trophy in Dubai along with Katrin Gorgodje. This is their third doubles title in the 2020 season affected by the Covid-19 epidemic.
The unseeded pair of India and Georgia won 6-4 3-6 10-6 over Spain’s Aliona Bolsova Jadoinov and Slovakia’s Kaja Juvan in the final of the $ 100,000 prize money hardcourt tournament on Saturday.
This was Ankita’s fourth doubles final of the season, but it was the biggest trophy on the calendar. The two titles he had won earlier were at the $ 25,000 level.
In February this year, Ankita made three finals, out of which she won consecutive titles with Bibiane Shoefs in Nonthaburi, Thailand, and was runner-up with compatriot Snehal Mane in Jodhpur.
