Good afternoon and welcome to the Sportskeeda liveblog of the Asian Junior Championships U-15 women's singles final. Samiya Imad Farooqui, a trainee at the Pullela Gopichand Academy is the only Indian to have reached any final at this combined U-15 and U-17 Asian Junior Championships tournament being held in Yangon, Myanmar.

Bringing home medals from this event is nothing new for the 14-year-old Farooqui. She and Gopichand's daughter, Gayatri had teamed up last year to bag the U-15 women's doubles bronze.

This time she has added a singles medal from this event and is definitely eyeing the gold.

Farooqui dropped just one game on her way to the final. In the quarter-finals, she came back from a game down to edge Japan's Kaoru Sugiyama.

Having said that, she still needs to be on the alert against her opponent, Widjaja Stephani. The unseeded Indonesian has been a giant-killer and has accounted for the top seed Rasila Maharjan and the fourth seed Pornpicha Choeikeewong. Needless to say that she will make it tough for the Indian.
