KATHMANDU: Sanu Gurung won the veteran’s singles (above 35yrs) section title of the first AIA Open Tennis Tournament title after his opponent Rajesh Chhetry retired in the second set.
Chhetry could not continue in the second set due to blister on his foot after he had lost the first set 7-6 at the Nepal Armed Police Force (APF) courts.
