Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan, the south paw from Chennai, won his maiden ITF $15000 USD Mens singles title today.

The 23-year-old, who completed his undergrad from the University of Washington and a stint of training in Germany, battled third-seeded Vishnu Vardhan from Andhra Pradesh at the ITF finals in Pune.

A qualifier, Jeevan outplayed many of his seeded counterparts to seal a place in the finals today. In a match that saw many fine strokes from both players, Jeevan held his nerve to emerge the winner. He won the title 6 – 4, 7 – 5.

The up & coming tennis champ will now travel to Delhi and Kolkata to take part in the next set of tournaments.
