In the men’s doubles, Nitten and Jagdish Tanwar made the semifinals when they got beaten by Bart and Sebastian Jackson 10-6 in the super tie-break.

“I played hard in the individual events, despite being physically exhausted after the team competition. I ran into Bart in all three events. Bart is a tough competitor and we played very close matches,” said Nitten before boarding the flight back to India.

“Special thanks to my teammates Jagdish Tanwar, Ajit Sail and Hatinder Panwar for the support they gave me. We coordinated very well as a team. I thank my family members for the constant support during the event,” said Nitten.

Thanking the All India Tennis Association (AITA) and the team sponsor Rakesh Kohli with his famous brand Stag, for the persistent support, Nitten said, “we will be motivated to come back stronger next year if AITA and Sports Ministry recognise our historic run for the nation.”
