Suraj R Prabodh, the number one men’s player of Karnataka and a promising player of the country, has won his maiden $5000 Asian Tennis Tour Title by defeating Kunal Anand, also of India, in Colombo, recently.
Suraj, being strongly supported and sponsored by the country’s top Agarbathies manufacturers Cycle Pure Agarbathies for the last five years, trounced the second seed 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 in a gruelling match that lasted for two hours 50 minutes. Enroute to finals, Suraj had packed off the top seed Nikki Poonacha of India 6-2, 6-3 in the semi-final match played at the prestigious Sri Lankan Tennis Association, Colombo on Wednesday.
Cycle Pure Agarbathies is in the forefront of supporting talented athletes involved in golf and tennis. “Without Cycle Pure Agarbathies selfless support and encouragement it would have been impossible to sustain pursuing this highly expensive sport of tennis,” acknowledges Suraj who is keenly watched by the tennis fraternity of the country.
“I am sure many more sportspersons like me would be able to duly utilise the solid ‘sports supporting platform’ that Cycle Pure Agarbathies has established to exclusively nurture talented athletes. I am indebted to them”, added the tennis player.
