In just 28 minutes at the State Sports Center, the 14-year-old Anwesha was defeated by her more experienced opponent 7-21, 13-21.

The Indian shuttler trailed by 2-11 at the start of the first break after being pushed back. Two-time junior world champion Goh Jin Wei dominated Anwesha after the break to take the lead 1-0. Anwesha made every attempt to match Goh’s energy in the second game, but she was unable to do so and ultimately fell short in straight games.

The 20-year-old Australian Pitchaya Elysia Viravong was defeated earlier in the first round by Gowda, who is ranked No. 8 in the junior badminton global rankings.

Four junior BWF championships and two runner-up results made for a fantastic 2022 season for Anwesha. When the majority of India’s top badminton players withdrew for a variety of reasons, she was the only remaining top-ranked Indian player at the BWF Super 300 competition.

Each year in Melbourne, Australia, the Melbourne Park hosts the Australian Open tennis competition. The event comes before the French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open, making it the first of the four tennis Grand Slam competitions conducted annually. Amid the Australia Day break, the Australian Open begins in the middle of January and lasts for two weeks.

It includes wheelchair, legends, and exhibition events in addition to men’s and women’s singles, men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles, junior championships, and these events. With nine victories, Novak Djokovic holds the record for most Australian Open men’s singles titles. Grass courts were used prior to 1988, but three different types of hardcourt surfaces have been utilised since then: green Rebound Ace up to 2007, blue Plexicushion from 2008 to 2019, and blue GreenSet starting in 2020.

The 2020 Australian Open contributed $387.7 million to the Victorian economy, while the 2010–2015 Australian Open had contributed more than $2.71 billion in economic benefits to Victoria and created 1775 jobs for the state, with the majority of these jobs being in the accommodation, hotels, cafés, and trade services sectors. The Australian Open is a significant employer in Victoria.
