Poojashree Venkatesha clinched the doubles title of the $10,000 ITF Futures women's event with Isha Lakhani and also kept herself in hunt for another crown by reaching the singles final.

Poojashree and Isha got the better of Japanese Moe Kawatoko and Sweta Solanki of India 6-4, 6-3 in the final.

Earlier, top seed Poojashree cruised to the singles final with an emphatic 6-4, 6-2 semifinal win over Israel's Keren Shlomo.

Poojashree wrapped up the match in 85 minutes.

However it was heartbreak for left-handed Sanaa Bhambri, who lost the other last-four clash 3-6 4-6 to Dalila Jakupovic of Slovakia.

The match lasted one hour and 12 minutes.
