Alasfoor retains Arab senior doubles crown

His love for the game of tennis has spanned six decades and it still continues to be strong. When on the tennis courts, Oman's Majeed Alasfoor likes to win matches and the 69 year old still loves to lay hands on trophies.

Alasfoor, who had won the doubles title at the Arab Senior Tennis Championship in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad earlier in February, retained the doubles crown in Amman, Jordan, recently.

Alasfoor teamed up with 65 year old Jordanian Nidal Lotfi, to capture the crown with a 2-1 sets win over Egyptian-Jordanian duo of Abdelhakim Abdul Ghaffar and Ibrahim al Hadid.

Egypt's Abdul Ghaffar was the partner of Alasfoor during their gold medal doubles triumph in Baghdad.

This was the sixth edition of the championships for seniors and witnessed a large participation of 162 men and women players from 14 countries.

The first seniors tennis championship Alasfoor took part was in Cairo, Egypt, in  2018. Since then he has taken part in four tournaments

Despite back-to-back titles, Alasfoor's desire for more success remains alive as ever as he aims for a hat-trick of titles when the next tournament is held in September.
