XtraTime Web Desk: India made history a couple of days back as its women’s mixed table-tennis team won the very first gold in Commonwealth Games as a team. Member and that team and star TT player Manika Batra again made history today as she become the first Indian in the women’s division to win gold in women’s singles during the Commonwealth Games 2018 in Gold Coast. She displayed a dominating performance against her opponent Meingyu Yu of Singapore. The result was 11-7, 11-6, 11-2, 11-7. It was her third medal in Gold Coast, the other one was a silver which she claimed with Mouma Das in women’s doubles last night.

Manika won a thriller against world number four Tianwei Feng of Singapore 12-10, 5-11, 11-8, 5-11, 5-11, 11-9, 13-11 in the semi-final round.
