Eala shoots for first ITF W40 title
MANILA, Philippines — Alex Eala takes a shot at her first ever ITF W40 pro title as the Filipina ace clashes with Oceane Dodin of France in the Kyotec Open final in Petange, Luxembourg (early Monday in Manila).
The 18-year-old Eala sustained her rampage and made the final with a 7-5, 4-6, 6-2 win in two hours and 30 minutes over Germany’s Anna-Lena Friedsam.
Eala earned a shot at a third title for the year but first ever at ITF W40.
If ever, she would gain her biggest pay check in her career.
Eala is gunning for her third title this year after ruling the W25 Yecla in June and W25 Roehampton in August. It will be her fourth final appearance this year including a runner-up finish in the W25 Aldershot four months ago.
