Stroking well on either flank, Neeraj Elangovan from Tamil Nadu overcame fourth seeded Adavelly Kumara (Andhra Pradesh) 6-3, 6-2 to annex the boys singles title in the AITA Adidas-MCC Junior National tennis championship (Under-18) in Chennai Saturday.

The girls singles too proved to be rather one-sided with top seed Snehadevi S. Reddy, also from Tamil Nadu, easing past State-mate Samhitha Sai 6-3, 6-1, to clinch the crown.

The results:

Boys singles: Neeraj Elangovan (TN) bt 4-Adavelly Kumara P (AP) 6-3, 6-2.

Girls singles: 1-Snehadevi S Reddy (TN) bt Samhitha Sai C (TN) 6-3, 6-1.
