Sri Lanka’s Akesha Silva completed a fine double at the ATF Junior Under-14 Week-1 Tennis Tournament, which concluded at the Sri Lanka Tennis Association (SLTA) Courts in Green Path, Colombo yesterday.

Akesha had a successful tournament as she clinched the Girls’ Under-14 Singles title and later, she joined her teammate Eliza Kahagalla to claim the Girls’ Under-14 Doubles event as well.
