Kannur (Kerala): An Indian origin boy will get the opportunity to spin the coin in the fourth round of the Australian Open tennis tournament on January 21 this year.

Angad Prathap, an 11-year-old whose family hails from here but who was born, brought up and settled in Melbourne, is cutting short his annual holidays and is returning to Melbourne.

Speaking to IANS, his father Prathapan Nair said that their family arrived here 10 days back for their annual vacation.

"It was two days back that I got the information that our son has been selected to toss the coin in the 4th round of the Australian Open. We were scheduled to return on the 27th, but now that this good fortune has come to Angad, he and I are returning early to be on time for the toss. My wife and our elder son will watch it on TV here as they are returning only as per schedule on the 27th," said Nair.

Nair said Angad is among the top tennis players in the age group of 10 years and has won many tournaments in Victoria state. He was recently selected in the top 10 promising players under the age of 10 in Victoria state.

"The toss ahead of every match is done by the best players who are age 10 and below and are selected on the overall performance at the annual tennis season in Australia that ends every September. Angad turned 11 after the season ended and he was lucky to have been selected," said Nair.
