Zimbabwean Davis Cup player, Benjamin Lock, landed his 4th ITF doubles crown in Egypt after partnering with Francis Alcantara of the Philippines.
Lock had missed out on a title in Turkey after losing in the final via a super tie break last week.
Lock, however, made amends with victory in Egypt to claim his 4th win the ITF circuit and second in Egypt.
Seeded 4th, Lock and Alcantara defied odds to overcome Tic Hen of Taipei and Faijin Sun of China, who were seeded second.
The 24-year old Zimbabwean was however not as successful in the singles where he tumbled out in the second round after losing to Russia’s Denis Klok 7-6, 7-5.
Lock recently broke into the ITF top 500 rankings and is now placed on position 466, making him the country’s highest ranked player.
On the doubles circuit, Lock is in the top 400 and currently occupies position 389.
