02 May Fusion junior Aadil Anand excels in international tournament
Aadil, who just turned 12, played in the Zagreb mini-cadet open this weekend. First up there was a team competition, in which he reached the semi-finals with his serbian partner where they met familiar English opposition. While Aadil beat England U13 no.1 Jamie Liu, he lost to his teammate Louis Price and the team finished in 3rd place.
In the singles competition Aadil cruised through the group stage and two further straight sets victories against Spanish opposition led him to the semi-final where he faced Louis Price yet again. This turned out to be another very tight affair and at 9:9 in the fifth, a place in the final was up for grabs. Unfortunately, Aadil lost the next two points and had to contend himself with another 3rd place.
