Abu Dhabi: Ramit Tandon's pursuit ended on a memorable note in the Abu Dhabi PSA tournament, a world tour event here on Saturday. The third seed Indian toppled the more experienced and top seed Omar Abdel Meguid of Egypt 11-6, 6-11, 11-3, 11-2 in an exciting one-hour match to lift the title, the third of his career.
Steady has been Ramit's watchword in this tournament and the young man played true to his potential.
