Indian para paddler Bhavina Patel is all set to create history for India in the Tokyo Paralympics 2020. Patel advanced into the women's singles class 4 finals by defeated China's Zhang Miao in the semis with scores of 7-11, 11-7, 11-4, 9-11, 11-8. 

The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all praises for Bhavina Patel. He wished her well in a tweet, saying, "Congratulations Bhavina Patel! You played excellently. The entire nation is praying for your success and will be cheering for you tomorrow. Give your best and play without any pressure. Your accomplishments inspire the entire nation. #Paralympics".

She made a bad start but, there was no going back for her from there. By being the first female Indian para player to the finals of table tennis in the Paralympics Games, she has already created history. The 34-year-old Gujarat-based paddler made her way into the semi-final earlier on Friday. Patel defeated the defending champion Borislava Rankovic of Serbia in the quarter-final.
