Ahmad Deedat Abdul Razak powered Selangor to the boys’ Under-16 title in the final day of the ECM Libra Foundation-LTAM Junior Championships at National Tennis Centre in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
Ahmad Deedat, a member of the national Davis Cup team, with Colin Wong and Tony Chin defeated Singapore 2-0 to regain their title.
Coach S. Selvarajoo said his team played superb tennis throughout the tournament.
“We came into this tournament as favourites and we achieved our target in style by not dropping a single set en route to victory in the boys’ under-16 event,” he said yesterday.
Selangor, however, failed to retain their girls’ Under-16 title, losing 2-0 to Thailand in the final.
The team comprising Alyssa Boey, R. Archnaah and Sagung Putri were no match for the talented Thais.
Perlis cruised past Singapore 2-0 in the boys’ Under-13 final and also won the girls’ title by edging Thailand 2-1.
