Sharmal Dissanayake entered the quarterfinal round of the ongoing ITF Pro Circut F2 Futures Series at the Sri Lanka Tennis Association clay courts yesterday when he comfortably beat his Thailand opponent Chanchai Sookton-Eng 6/1, 6/0.

The Lankan dominated the game from the beginning and left no room for his opponent to pose a threat.

Earlier Sharmal beat sixth seed Ukranian counterpart Vladyslav after a tough battle 6/3, 6/7(4), 6/4 in the first round. This is the second week of back-to-back three-phase ITF Pro Futures tournament and Sharmal was eliminated in the second round of the F1 tournament last week.

He is the only Sri Lankan in F2 second round as Avindra Perera and Dineshkanthan Thangarajah, the only two other Lankan campaigners went out after the first round.

The SU $ 15,000 prize money tournament will continue until June 24 at the SLTA courts.
