Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam’s top tennis player Ly Hoang Nam won the men’s singles title of the Thailand F3 Men’s Futures tennis tournament on June 24.

Nam, world No 529, came from behind to beat French Jankovits Yannick, No 2 seed and world No 414, 2-6, 7-6, 6-4.

Yannick has 13 Men’s Futures titles to his name, while this is Nam’s second taste of Futures success, after winning the Vietnam F5 Futures last year.
