DENRICK Hazelman has the opportunity to make it a perfect two in the Courts Nadi Tennis Open tournament today.

Hazelman scooped the doubles title with Devashkar Reddy on Sunday and will compete for the singles title against Raynal Singh at 4pm today at the Nadi Sports Club.

Hazelman and Reddy defeated Annie Shannon and Terry Rush 6-1, 7-5 to win the open doubles title.

Tournament controller Sachin Reddy said they did not have enough time to play the open singles over the weekend.

He said the tournament would continue this weekend with the junior grades competition.

"Altogether we have 84 players and we don't have enough courts to squeeze them in a single weekend," Sachin said.

"We played the open singles and doubles, veteran singles and doubles and social singles and doubles over the weekend and the juniors will have their competition this weekend."

Raghu Nandan won the veterans singles before joining forces with Daven Kumaran to scoop the veterans doubles.

In the social grade, Shekhar Balram defeated Aaron Dutt 8-1 to win the singles while in the battle of brothers, Devrath and Kartik Narayan defeated Sumeet and Shoneet Sharma 6-3, 6-2 to win the doubles.

"We had a couple of upsets as well and we are looking forward to another exciting tournament this weekend," Sachin said.
