Amaan takes on Yash for U-16 crown at ISC tennis tournament

MUSCAT: Top seed Amaan Kazi will take on second seed Yash Tanna in the final of the boys under-16 singles at the Falcon Insurance Company-sponsored Annual Tennis Tournament organised by the Indian Social Club.
Amaan Kazi advanced to the final after downing Sanskar Dubey 6-1, 6-4 while Yash Tanna faced anxious moments before edging to a 6-3, 6-4 win over Ayaan Malhotra in the semifinals. After a convincing first set, Amaan faced resistance before overcoming the gritty fight back by Sanskar. Yash was kept on his toes by Ayaan Malhotra, who one thought could turn the tables on Yash. Yash held his ground and powered to that solitary break in the second set to earn his place in the final.
The men’s doubles final will be a test of wits and a contest between the experienced duo of Mohan Kannan and KK Girish and the teenagers team of Subash Pillai and Yash Tanna.
While Subash and Yash earned their place in the final with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Amaan Kazi and Ayaan Malhotra, the seasoned campaigners’ team of Mohan Kannan and KK Girish earned their place in the final after upsetting the second seeded team of Suhail Khan and R Murali in a thrilling 2-6, 6-4, 10-8 verdict in the second semifinal.
