It will be an all-Delhi clash in the women's singles final as second seed Prerna Bhambri will look to defend her title against top seed Shweta Rana, both of whom recorded contrasting wins in their respective semi-finals.

While Shweta was pushed to three sets by Kerala's fifth seed Sharmada Balu before the former edged past with a 4-6, 6-1, 6-1 win, Prerna knocked out Tamil Nadu's sixth seed C. Sai Samhitha easily, winning 6-2, 6-1.

Prerna remained on course to defend her title as she went past Samitha with relative ease, converting the breakpoints she earned, never allowing the game slip away. She broke Samitha twice in the opening set and the sixth seed just couldn't hold her serve in the second. Samitha broke Prerna in the fourth game which didn't help her cause as she failed to hold on to her serve even once in the set.
