KUALA LUMPUR: The privatisation of the National Tennis Complex (NTC) in Jalan Duta must be a win-win situation for all, says the Lawn Tennis Association of Malaysia (LTAM).

On Sunday, LTAM president Mirzan Mahathir said the national body that have been occupying the centre for the past 30 years cannot lose their identify as the main guardian of the sport in the country.

Following the recent final round of presentation with the Malaysia Stadium Corporation (MSC), Mirzan admitted that there are still areas which need to be looked into before finalising the privatisation process.

"We (LTAM) are still waiting to know what will happen, though I believe we need to talk more. The privatisation of the NTC should not only benefit the MSC.

"We have raised some of our concerns and I think we will meet them again to discuss more on how it could be a win-win situation for all," said Mirzan after the prize giving ceremony of the 2018 Tennis Malaysia National Circuit Leg One.

In the men's singles final, Ahmed Deedat Abdul Razak defeated Christian Oliver Lee 6-2, 7-6 (7-4) while Suhana Sofea came out tops in the women's singles after a 6-4, 6-4 win over B. Haarini.

On Saturday, Syed Agil Syed Naguib-Ashaari Zainal Abidin and Jawairiah Noordin-Yus Syazlin Nabila Yusri won the men and women’s doubles competitions.

Suhana, Jawairiah and S.Theiviya left for Bahrain on Sunday for the Fed Cup Asia/Oceania Group Two competition.s
