Hyderabad teenager and India's rising talent on the tennis firmament, Yadlapalli Pranjala, crushed third seeded Philippine girl, Maika Jae Tanpoco, to storm into quarterfinals of the Phinma International Juniors (Week 2) girls' ITF Grade 4 tournament at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Centre in Manila today.

Unlike the earlier round where she had to struggle in the first set against her Russian opponent, she was all over her higher ranked player to eventually drub her 6-2, 6-1 in the pre-quarterfinal match, according to information received here.

She will take on sixth seeded Tamachan Momkoonthod for a berth in the semifinals.
