FIJI'S Radhika Prasad bounced back after an opening round loss to win the next four straight matches in the World Bowls Singles Champion of Champions at the Athena Beach Hotel in Cyprus.
Prasad made a slow start losing to top ranked Sandra Keith of New Zealand 7-9, 2-12.
However the opening loss did not derail Prasad as she came back firing in the competition.
Prasad defeated Bernice McGreal of Isle of Man 13-6, 8-4 and then upset Janice Agar of Australia 16-3, 8-6.
She downed Carmen Spiteri of Malta in a tie breaker 5-11, 10-3, 8-0. Prasad beat Nikki Lee of Macao 14-1, 7-3. The wins moved Prasad into second position in the women's section two.
Abdul Kalim playing in the men's section two failed to build on a bright start.
Kalim won his first three matches and then lost his next three games to drop to fifth position. The Westpac Bank business development manager commercial defeated top ranked Jason Greenslade of Wales 11-7, 8-8.
He downed David Bryan of Zimbabwe 9-5, 7-7 and beat Leonard Callus of Malta 10-10, 11-8.
Kalim lost to Peter Hodson of New Zealand 5-15, 9-12.
The next two matches Kalim lost in a tie breaker.
Kalim went down to Mark Kelsey of Scotland 9-6, 6-12, 1-5 and lost to Christian Huang of Singapore 11-10, 2-10, 1-6.
He said the weather was a bit cold in the Mediterranean.
Kalim said he was unfortunate to lose to his Scotland and Singapore opponents.
"I won the first match in both those games," Kalim said.
"There is still a long way to go. The level of bowling is high."
