Sweet revenge for Sanam

July 05, 2006 00:10 IST

Sanam Singh extracted sweet revenge when he dumped out Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain of the boys' singles at the Wimbledon Grand Slam junior tennis championships in London on Tuesday.

Eighth seeded Sanam edged past the 18-year old Spaniard 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 in the second round to make up for his shock defeat at the hands of world junior number 47 at Roehampton last week.

The Chandigarh lad now takes on Artur Chernov of Russia in the pre-quarter-finals, which will be another rematch.

Sanam tamed Chernov, the 12th seed, 6-3, 7-6(6) in the Round of 16 at Roehampton and will expect a tougher challenge this time around from the Russian.
