Arundhati Pantawane's brilliant run at the Estonian open finally came to an end, in the womens singles badminton finals match.

 Michelle Kit Yin Chan of New Zealand defeated Arundhati by a score of 21-16, 21-19 in the finals held at Tallinn in Estonia.

Earlier, Arundhati who was a qualifier for this event, not only had won the qualifying rounds with ease, but weaved her way to the Finals defeating seeded players in the process.

For Arundhati, who currently plays as a professional badminton player for the Taby club at Sweden, 2011 is turning out to be a good year. She had earlier reached the finals of the Indian Senior National Badminton championship at Rohtak in Haryana, and lost by a very narrow margin in the finals. And she has now followed up this great run at the Indian Nationals, with a Silver medal in the Estonian Open.

She may not have won the Gold, but her performance does deserve a ton of praise.
And God willing, with the way she is playing, her golden days also will come very soon!
