Ravneel Chand of Lautoka was happy after he defeated Ben Littlejohn in the Under-14 category.
This was during the Kingsew International Classics Junior Tennis Championship at the Nadi Sports and Social Club yesterday.
“I’m very happy with this win as the competition had been tough,’’Chand said.
The 14-year-old student of Tilak High School has won seven singles title and is looking forward to represent Fiji in future.
“This win was possible under the guidance of my coach Sachin Reddy.”
He says if a player has the vision to become the best then he will succeed.
Reddy said the competition has seen an increase in young players’ participation.
“We had a total of 60 players in this competition compared to 45 last year,’’ he said.
Reddy said the increase shows the interest among them to compete.

“We have taken junior tennis players on tour to Vanuatu and Melbourne giving them the exposure.
“I thank Kingsew International for being the major sponsor and helping players to improve their skills,” Reddy said.
Reddy also thanked the Tennis Fiji president Richard Breen in uplifting the sport in the country.
Players from around Nadi, Lautoka and Suva participated in the competition.
