Rai wins first ATP Challenger doubles title

Saturday, 10 September 2022

Ajeet Rai has won his first ATP Challenger doubles at the first attempt.

The 23-year-old Davis Cup player has teamed with Korean Chung Yun-seong to win the doubles title at the Bangkok Open. They have beaten the Indonesian Philippines combination of Christopher Rungkat and Francis Alcantara 6-1 7-6 (6) in an hour and 14 minutes.

Rai will now head to Helsinki to link up with the New Zealand Davis Cup team preparing for the tie against Finland next weekend. Rai’s doubles ranking is expected to jump to just outside the top 400 when the rankings come out on Monday night NZT, an improvement of more than 200 places in the past couple of weeks.
