Israel’s Itay Erenlib’s superb display at the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters ended with a defeat in the final to American David Wagner on Sunday.

Erenlib lost 6-4, 6-1 to world No. 2 Wagner after coming through the group stage and beating Andy Lapthorne 6-2, 6-4 in the semis.

As one of the most prestigious events on the Wheelchair Tennis Tour, the Masters invites the top eight men and women along with the top six quads for the official ITF year-end wheelchair singles championship.

The 31-year-old Erenlib, who was injured in Nablus in 2007 during his IDF service, missed out on a medal at the Rio Paralympics in heartbreaking fashion, losing with Shraga Weinberg in three sets to Britain’s Jamie Burdekin and Andy Lapthorne after a grueling four hours and 25 minutes.
