Sekerkova & Krejci dominate in Most

Sekerkova & Krejci dominate in Most

Czech pair Veronika Sekerkova and Tomas Krejci have won the 14 & Under Category 1 tournament in Most on home soil. This win marks their second title of the year and will strengthen their standings in the Race to Monte-Carlo, where Sekerkova ranked 2nd and Krejci 8th last week.

Top seed Sekerkova faced Anna Pircher in the girls' final. The Austrian scored wins over three seeded players on her way to the final. After playing two consecutive three-set matches, the Czech picked up the trophy after a quick 6-3 6-2 victory.  This victory is especially sweet for Sekerkova, who lost the Most Open final to Serbian Luna Vujovic in 2022.

In the boys’ event, Krejci had his most difficult battle of the week in the semifinal against Luka Ceramilac (SRB). He came back from one set down, played two tiebreaks and qualified for the final after a 6-7(8)7-6(4) 6-2 win. He happily returned to the same court right after the semifinal to secure the doubles title together with compatriot Jakub Kusy, defeating Rhys Lawlor & Leo Wright (GBR) 6-4 7-5.

In the singles final, Krejci faced American Jordan Lee, who upset top seed Kusy in the second round. Lee went on to upset three more seeded players during the event, until Krejci stopped his winning streak and claimed the Most Open title 6-1 6-3.
