It was a master class in Tennis by the outright favourites in the Men’s and Women’s finals at the 94th National Championships at the Sri Lanka Tennis Association (SLTA) courts yesterday.

In the Women’s Singles Final Amritha Muttiah dismissed Nilupul Guasekara 6/2, 6/0 to win in straight sets.

Amritha hardly broke a sweat and cruised through the match with Nilupul watching her in awe from the other side of the court. Amritha’s fine service game and her hard hitting from the baseline was too much for her opponent Nilupul who sometimes looked like she had no hope of salvaging a point.

Mens Singles Final : Harshana Godamanna beat Rajeev Rajapakse 6/3, 6/2, 6/0

The much looked forward to Men’s Final turned out to be a one sided affair as well with the favourite Harshana Godamanna getting the better of his doubles partner Rajeev Rajapakse in straight sets to win the match 6/3, 6/2, 6/0.

Harshana seemed to be in better form and more in control of his game. Rajeev looked out of touch and he would consider this to be one of the weaker performances in his lengthy career. Though both players pulled out all the stops to come out on top it was Harshana who got the better of the exchanges playing near flawless tennis to come out as the outright winner.
