Anjelika crowned Women’s Champ
Rising tennis sensation Anjelika Kurera of Ave Maria Convent Negombo, continued her brilliant form to secure yet another title when she defeated Neyara Weerawansa in two straight sets (6/4, 6/0) in the women’s open final at the 106th Colombo Championship Tennis Tournament 2021 yesterday. It was a one-sided affair from the get go, where Anjelika was seen playing aggressively to wrap up victory with ease.
Anjelika has had a brilliant outing throughout the tournament. Earlier, she outplayed Hasali Gajaba (4/1, 4/2) in the quarter-final and then went on to defeat Tuwini de Alwis (6/1, 6/1) in the semis. This is Anjelika’s third Women’s open title, which she last won in 2018 and 2019.
