Jeevan eases past Torroni

Chennai, Feb 27, 2013, PTI:

Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan scored a facile 6-0, 6-2 win over Giulio Torroni of Italy on a day when four other Indians entered the quarterfinals of the MCC-SR Subramaniam Memorial ITF Mens Futures at the Mayor Radhakrishnan stadium.

Third seeded Jeevan served strongly and played aggressive tennis to demolish his opponent.

The left-handed Elwin Antony played aggressively in the second and third sets to score a well deserved win over Vivek Shokeen, while Vijay Sundar Prashanth, V M Ranjeet and Vijayant Malik proved to be too good for their respective opponents.

Tak Khunn Wang of France upset the 2nd seed Sriram Balaji 6-2, 7-6 (7-3) with his fluent serve and return. Sriram was outplayed in the first set and fought back in the second, but Wang kept his cool to win the tiebreak comfortably 7-3.

In another match, Brazil’s Thales Turini defeated Moraing of Germany in a three-set encounter that lasted 2.45 hours.
