Manika Batra today won a first ever women's singles table tennis gold for India at the Commonwealth Games, blanking Yu Mengyu of Singapore 4-0 in the final today.

Earlier, Manika won gold in the women's team event. The 22-year-old had paired up with veteran Mouma Das to win the country's maiden women's doubles silver. She can add a fourth medal to the dream campaign when she plays the mixed doubles bronze play-off tomorrow.
