first_imgTop seed Somdev Devvarman assured India at least a silver medal in the tennis competition of the Commonwealth Games by storming into the men’s singles final with a straight set win over Australia’s Matthew Ebden here today.Somdev, ranked 97th, outplayed third seed and world number 165 Ebden, 6-3 6-1 in one hour and 11 minutes in the men’s singles semifinals at the Centre Court of the R K Khanna Tennis stadium.His next opponent will also be an Australian as the other semifinal is an all-Australian affair between second seed Peter Luczak and fifth seed Greg Jones.Unlike the previous matches, the semifinal featured long rallies but Somdev had strong enough legs and stamina to outlast his opponent.Ebden was coming into this match after playing an energy-sapping three-setter against British Joshua Goodall and perhaps had not recovered from the gruelling encounter.Nevertheless, he did pose some questions for Somdev but the Indian was equipped with enough answers.The match never rose to expected highs ever since Ebden dropped his serve in the first game. The Australian slowly picked up but Somdev gradually tightened his grip over the match.The Indian broke Ebden twice in both the sets. He is also in contention in the men’s doubles and is scheduled to play semifinals with Rohan Bopanna later in the dayWith inputs from PTIlast_img read more
