BISP Y8 Tennis Academy player Pine represented Thailand at the recent ITF Asia Team Competition in Kazakhstan. The Thailand team took second place in this competition after losing to Kazakhstan 2:1 in the final.
BISP student Pine played his first hand and won 6-3, 7-6 (tiebreak 8-6) making the final score 1:1. Second hand from Team Thailand lost 3-6, 0-6. Unfortunately, in the end, Pine and his teammate, playing doubles together, lost 4-6, 3-6, resulting in the second-place position in the overall competition.
Despite not taking home the winning position, this is the best result ever for the Thailand boy’s team in the IFT Asia Competition. BISP and the Tennis Academy coaches are proud of Pine’s performance as he did not lose a set in the singles of this tournament. He won against one of the best players in Kazakhstan during the tournament and he played well in his doubles.
