National champion VM Ranjeet is among the players who has benefitted a great deal from the regular camps being held in the Capital for the 2010 Commonwealth Games probables.

He has made it at least as far as the quarter-finals in the last seven tournaments he has played,and those results include two commendable performances in Iran,where he went as far as the semi-finals and a final earlier this month.

On Wednesday at the DLTA Complex,he slugged it out against a tricky Korean opponent,Seung-Jae Lee and found in himself the strength to outlast him,eventually winning in a third-set tie-break,6-3 4-6 7-6 (8).

This is the second Korean player he has beaten this week at the $10,000 ITF Futures,and in the last eight he will play another,but that will be a much tougher task in the form of third seed and last week’s champion Young-jun Kim
