LONDON: Gianluigi Quinzi of Italy won his first Grand Slam junior boys' title yesterday, beating unseeded Chung Hyeon of South Korea 7-5, 7-6 (2) at Wimbledon.
Chung served for the first set at 5-3, but the sixth-seeded Quinzi broke twice and served out the set.
The 17-year-old players were evenly matched in the second set, but Quinzi dominated the tiebreaker.
Last year, Quinzi reached the Wimbledon boys' semi-finals, his previous best result at a junior Grand Slam event. Chung was playing at Wimbledon for the first time and reached his first Grand Slam final.
