Last week both Chathu & Vichi Nilaweera competed in the Asian Tennis Federation 14 & Under held in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
10 year old Vichi did very well in playing in his 1st ever 14 & Under event against much older opponents. He lost a tough first match against a strong Indian opponent who went on to finish the competition in 4th place. After this first defeat, Vichi went on to win his next 4 matches to finish up a very respectable 17th out of 32. We have every confidence that Vichi will improve his ranking with each event – well done and good luck next week.
12 year old Chathu had a good competition and gained his first ATF competition win, blowing away all competition with a final score victory of 6-1, 6-0. Well done Chathu and with continued effort and focus in training – who knows what he could achieve!
