Jordan’s rising tennis star Abdullah Shelbayeh has clinched an unique U14 double after winning the singles and the doubles at the Asian Junior Tennis Championships in Bangkok, Thailand.
Shelbayeh beat Syria’s Taim Al Azamah in the final 2-0, and then teamed up with the same player to beat Jordan’s Mohammad Al Kotob and Syria’s Pierre Jarwa in the final of the doubles.
In the female competitions, Jana Al Khateeb lost in the semi-final to Maria Breidy of Sri Lanka.
Jordan sent four players to the event based on their performances from the recent West Asian Championships held in Amman.
As well as Shelbayeh, Al Kotob and Al Khateeb, Randa Al Qudsi also competed and reached the quarter-finals of the females.
