Takes on Amrith in men's singles final

Will Rajeev be fourth time lucky?:

TENNIS: It should be a gruelling battle for supremacy when thrice runner up Rajeev Rajapakse will take on Amrith Rupasinghe to decide who will win the national title at the 92nd National Tennis final that will take place today at 1.30 p.m. at the SLTA Courts Greenpath, Colombo.

Rajeev Rajapakse has still to win a final although he featured thrice in the national finals. He lost to seasoned Jayendra Wijesekera in 1999 and lost twice to Harshana Godamanne the present national champion in 2005 and 06'.

In the women's final which is scheduled to take place at 2.30 p.m. defending champion and twice winner Jithmie Jayawickrema will no doubt go to make it a hat-trick of wins after winning the titles in the previous two years. She will be meeting Amritha Muthiah in their three set final.

The matches that were scheduled to take place yesterday were curtailed by rain. The matches began only at 1.30 pm .
