Paddler Udit Sachdev played a pivotal role in the final of the Ultimate Table Tennis Mumbai Super League, helping Team Ace claim the crown here late on Sunday night.
Udit proved to be the trump player once again, emerging victorious in both his matches and winning six crucial points to help Aces to a narrow 14-13 victory over Century Warriors.
Senhora D'Souza started the victory march for Ace, beating Divya Deshpande in the opening match 2-1 (6-11, 11-9, 11-10).
But her good work was undone as Jignesh Rahatwal and Chinmay Somaiya lost the next two matches.
Jignesh went down to Mandar Hardikar 0-3 (5-11, 4-11, 5-11) in the men's single clash while Chinmay capitulated to Havish Asrani 0-3 ( 7-11,9-11,6-11) in the junior boys' category.
This saw them concede a 2-7 lead to Warriors.
Udit and Rajesh Singh got them back into the contest with a dominating 3-0 (11-8, 11-9, 11-9) victory over Sameer Bhate and Dhruv Shah in the doubles category (veterans and cadet).
