14&U | Internationale Deutsche Tennismeisterschaften | Dueren, GER
After two doubles tournament wins on tour this year, Juan Carlos Prado has won his first top tier event on European soil, while Canada’s Victoria Mboko notches her third singles title - and second Category 1 - of 2019.
The top seed, Adriano Dzhenev (BUL), was upset in the third round by the Bolivian, while the second seed, Marc Majdandzic (GER), suffered the same fate at the hands of Canadian Stewart Aronson in the same round. Continuing his blitz through the field, Prado later posted another great win over the third seeded German Bon Lou Karstens in the semi finals. He completed his amazing run with a 6-4 6-1 win in the final over Estonia’s Oliver Ojakaar, who now stands at two from four in singles finals this year.
A similar fate befell the top two girls’ seeds from the Ukraine, both of whom were knocked out earlier than expected. Alisa Baranovska was taken out in the first round, then #2 Daria Yesypchuk made her exit in the quarter finals. A large contingent of overseas players, many of whom were competing as part of ITF Touring Teams, made inroads in the draw. Amelie Smejkalova (CZE) and Aya El Aouni of Morocco fell to Kayla Cross (CAN) and Mboko respectively. This left Cross and Mboko to fight out an all-Canadian final, with Mboko coming out on top 6-0 7-5.
