“Today’s match was not that good but I was playing against the World number 12. I couldn’t do much. Whatever I could do to make a comeback I did,” Anahat told Janta Ka Reporter.

She added, “This is my senior-level competition. I won my first-round match yesterday. I was very happy with that win. Now I know what more I need to do to compete at this level.”

Anahat said that her English coach helped her a lot in preparing for the Games.
