Ben Patel became the first Indian table tennis player to reach the Paralympic semifinals, defeating Borislava Perich Rankov of Serbia 11-5, 11-6 and 11-7 in the women’s singles class 4 at the Tokyo Games. It was never easy to beat the world number two, but Bhavinaben did it.

To date, no Indian has reached the semi-finals. Patel, 34, had beaten Brazil’s Joyce de Oliveira to win the last 16. The match was decided 12-10, 13-11 and 11-6.

“My coach told me to play close to the opponent’s body and I did,” he said after the match. Earlier, India’s table tennis player Sonalben Manubhai Patel was ruled out after losing both matches in the group.
