Indian junior tennis player Sumit Nagal and Vietnam’s Nam Hoang Ly beat Reilly Opelka of the United States and Akira Santillan of Japan 7-6(4), 6-4 to win the Wimbledon boys’ doubles title on Sunday.
The 17-year-old Nagal and Ly, seeded eighth, defeated the American-Japanese fourth seeds in an hour and three minutes on No. 1 Court of The All England Club.
Both pairs broke each other once to push the first set to a tie-breaker, where Nagal and Ly proved a tad bit better to win the set and take the lead in the match.
The eighth seeds were offered only one break point opportunity in the second set which they grabbed with open hands to get the break of serve and thus win the set and the match.
The New Delhi-born, right-handed player had also entered the boys’ singles competition. However, he was ousted from the category in the first round, losing to Argentinean Juan Pablo Ficovich in three sets.
