New Delhi: India's Ankita Raina hammered compatriot Eetee Maheta 6-3, 6-2 to lift the USD 10,000 ITF women's singles tennis tournament, here on Saturday.

Second seed Ankita, who was playing in her fifth consecutive USD 10,000 ITF singles' final, was hardly troubled by the unseeded Maheta in the battle of baseliners.

The world number 364 was the first to get off the block and raced to a 4-1 lead. Though Maheta tried to make a comeback by breaking Ankita's serve in the sixth game and held her serve on seventh, the eventual champion was in no mood for charity.
