Kiran Viravanathan of British School in Colombo won the boys’ under-18 title at the 106th Tennis Nationals beating Thehan Wijemanne in the final 1/6, 7/6(5), 10/8. Kiran won the first game convincingly, but Thehan came with a gutsy performance in the following set. Kiran some how tamed the opponent in a tiebreaker to win the set. Even in the third set stiff competition was shown by both players, but Kiran sealed his victory at the end.

Anjalika Kurera of Ave Maria Convent, Negombo won the girls’ under 18 singles title as she had the better of Sajida Razick 6/3, 1/6, 13/11 in the final.

Anjalika was the U-18 champion in 2019 and was able to retain the title, as the 2020 edition was not played due to Covid-19 pandemic.
