Dudi Sela claimed his third straight Israel national tennis championship at Ramat Hasharon on Sunday before Andy Ram and Yoni Erlich capped their brief return to the court with another doubles title.

Sela beat Amir Weintraub 7-5, 6-2 in the final which was postponed by two days due to the rainy weather, triumphing in a scrappy first set before lifting his level of play in the second to clinch a sixth career title.

“It feels really good to be the national champion for the sixth time,” said Sela.

“It wasn’t easy to play in the cold and I think neither of us played well. I think I played slightly better in the end and I’m happy I won.”

Sela, ranked No. 100 in the world, faces two more weeks of preseason training before traveling to the Far East to continue his build up for the Australian Open, the year’s first Grand Slam event in Melbourne.
