Zac Millar has won the consolation plate final at the World Junior Championships in Doha overnight.
Zac has comfortably beaten the Australian number two Thomas Calvert 11-3, 11-4, 11-3 in just 24 minutes to be crowned consolation plate winner at the 19th World Junior Men's Championships being played in Doha, Qatar. The result capped an excellent resurgence from Zac. After making a nervous start to the tournament, losing his first two matches, Zac recovered to not lose a single set on his way to the consolation plate. His latest win over the Australian number two followed similar triumphs over German, Kuwaiti and Japanese opponents.
The teams event begins overnight in Qatar, with New Zealand up against second-seeds Pakistan in the first round of pool play.
