India’s para table tennis player Bhavinaben Hasmukhbhai Patel assured India of at least a bronze medal at the ongoing Tokyo Paralympics by reaching the semi-finals of the women’s (Class 4) event. The Indian player defeated World No. 2 Borislava Peric-Rankovic of Serbia 3-0 in the quarter-finals at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium — Table 5 on Friday. Bhavinaben Patel overwhelmed the defending champion Borislava Peric Rankovic in straight games by 11-5, 11-6, 11-7 in just 18 minutes. The Indian got off to a good start as she took the first game 11-5 in just 5 mins. She continued her surge in the second game and clinched it 11-6.

Riding on that brilliant momentum, Bhavinaben again faced no resistance from the Serbian and sealed the match by an 11-7 victory in the third game.

Earlier on Friday, Bhavinaben qualified for the quarter-finals of the Tokyo Paralympics after a scintillating 3-0 win over Joyce de Oliviera of Brazil.

She defeated Joyce in straight games 3-0 (12-10, 13-11, 11-6) to clinch the game and move into the next round.
