Tennis: Issa clinches U-12 title at ISC tourney

Muscat: Issa bin Ali Al Suleimani justified his top seeding by capturing the boys under-12 singles title at the ISC-Muscat Pharmacy Open Junior Tennis Tournament organised by the Indian Social Club (ISC).
In the final, the talented Omani player played with conviction to script a brilliant 7-5, 6-1 victory over Abhishek Deshpande.
After taking an early lead, Issa came under pressure when Abhishek took his chances and broke Issa in the seventh game and held for a 5-3 lead.
Issa broke back for 5-all and continued the onslaught and broke again to win the first set.
Issa played with more confidence as Abhishek’s unforced errors did not help his cause and Issa sailed through the second set to win the title.
