India also won silver medals in men's and women's doubles in a successful outing for the squad in Ecuador.In the women's singles final, the 26-year-old Reeth, a Mumbai-based TSTTA player, was engaged in a close tussle for Supremacy with 28-year-old Ankita, who started on a positive note by winning the opening game at the Complejo Deportivo Totoracocha, Cuenca.But, Reeth showed plenty of determination and fought back strongly to win the second and third games to take a slender 2-1 lead, according to information received here.Ankita drew level by snatching a tense fourth game in extra points before Reeth once again found her attacking form and knocked the fight out of her teammate Ankita by winning the next two games, thus wrapping up the contest with a 6-11, 11-4, 11-6, 16-18, 11-1 and 11-6 win.India completed a grand double when Manush Shah defeated Juan Jesus Gomez of Mexico 4-1 in the men's singles final. The 20-year-old Gujarat paddler Manush was in control as he dictated the rallies against his 18-year-old Mexican rival and went on to close out the match with a creditable 11-7, 11-9, 11-13, 11-7, and 11-9 victory and claimed the country's second gold medal.
