Jeevan and Vijay win the doubles title in Chennai
THE TOP-SEEDED DUO of N. Vijay Sundar Prashanth and Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan claimed their second successive ITF Futures doubles title at the Raman Sports Trust $10,000 event at the Power Pak tennis courts in Chennai on Friday evening.
They defeated the Russo-Kazakh combine of Markos Kalovelonis and Timur Khabibulin 4-6, 6-3, 10-4.
Though the Indian duo were lagging behind they caught the rhythm in the second set and in the match tie-break.
“Doubles with Vijay is fun. We share a good relationship,”
said Jeevan (as told to The Hindu).
“Also, this, unlike the singles, is not so physically demanding. And in the late afternoon the conditions are also better compared to the morning session.”
