NEW Mexico Military Institute head tennis coach Daneric Hazelman claimed the Courts Nadi open singles title in astonishing fashion at the Nadi Sports Club on Wednesday.

Hazelman was in awesome form dispatching former national champion Devashkar Reddy 6-0, 6-0 in the final.

The 24-year-old showed a lot of aggression in the match and stamped his mark as the leading contender for a spot in the national team for next year's Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea.

Tournament referee Sachin Reddy said Daneric played aggressive ground strokes.

Reddy said Devaskhar could not match Daneric's class.

"Devashkar has not been playing active tennis lately because of his studies," he said.

"So now he will have to train harder. Daneric is strong mentally.

"The way he played in the final, it shows that he will be a medal contender at the Pacific Games."

The tournament will be held at the same time next year and the sponsorship from Courts is for another two years.
