Unseeded Naisha Srivastav of Karnataka packed off second seed Renee Singh of Rajasthan to enter the girls' singles third round in the CCI 13th Ramesh Desai Memorial Under 16 Tennis Nationals here on Tuesday.
Lanky, bespectacled Naisha, ranked 65th in the country, served consistently and dominated the rallies to unsettle Renee, who is ranked fifth, and cruised to a 6-4, 6-2 win to book her place in the last 16 at the Cricket Club of India.
However, top seed Sirimalla Sanjana of Telangana did not have to exert herself too much as she sailed past Kanupriya Rajawat of Rajasthan 6-0, 6-0 in another second round match.
The boys' event witnessed a major upset as the number one seed Udit Gogoi of Assam crashed at the first hurdle, going down to Ayushmaan Arjeria of Madhya Pradesh in three hard-fought sets in a first round match.
Arjeria played steadily and won some close points to clinch a 6-3, 4-6, 7-5 victory.
