Rastogi, Amritraj in ITF final

June 08, 2007 21:50 IST

Top seed Karan Rastogi overcame a spirited challenge from Sunil Kumar Sipaeya to set up a final with Prakash Amritraj at the US $ 10,000 ITF Futures in Dehradun on Friday.

Rastogi beat Sipaeya 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 while Amritraj overcame Tsung-Hua Yang of the Chinese Taipei 7-5, 6-4 in the semi-finals. Saturday's final will give the Mumbai lad a change to avenge last week's loss to Amritraj in the final of the Chandigarh Futures.

Stephen Amritraj, son of former Davis Cupper Anand, picked up his second doubles title in two weeks as he combined with Mustafa Ghouse to beat Vijay Kannan and Vinod Sridhar.

The top seeds beat Kannan-Sridhar 6-2, 6-1 to claim the title.
