Indian tennis player Sumit Nagal wins the Ellese Pro Tennis Challenge 2022. The tournament, which was held in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, was Nagal's first title win since he returned from a hip injury.
The Indian defeated Michael Zheng in straight sets in the final. First set was anyone's game as both players were quite equally-footed. After the score was tied 6-6, Nagal came out on top at the end of the tie breaker, thereby winning the set 7-6.
The second set was much more easy for Nagal as he eased through it, winning it with a dominating score line of 6-1.
In the semi-finals, Sumit who is ranked 458th amongst the male singles players doled out a defeat to the 68th ranked Hugo Gaston. The match ended 7-6, 4-6, 10-3 in favour of the player who is way down the pecking order.
This title victory will be a huge boost for the resurgent Nagal as he would hope to carry this momentum in to the US Open 2022, which commences on 29th August in New York.
