Sri Lanka ended their Asia Oceania Zone Group IV Event ‘A’ Tennis Tournament unbeaten, when they outclassed Iraq 2-0 in the final at the SLTA clay courts in Greenpath, Colombo.  

Sri Lanka will now be promoted to group III.

Top tennis player Harshana Godamanna, who was playing his last game for Sri Lanka before hanging up his racket, had a fitting end to his career with a dominating 6/3, 6/2 win over Adel Mustafa Al-Saedi.  

Godamanna was presented with a huge plaque by Iqbal bin Issack, President of SLTA, which had many pictures of him in action. His parents were also in attendance at the ceremony.

Earlier, Yasitha de Silva got the better of Abdullah Ali Hatem in a thrilling two setter (6/4, 6/2).
