Double for Samuel


Toby Samuel has won back to back ITF Junior titles, winning again in the Grade 5 event on the Wirral, and completing a sequence of 10 straight wins in the process. In a draw mainly filled with Brits (which is the purpose of these entry level tournaments), Samuel overcame a possible let-down after the euphoria of winning the previous week, and also managed the physical and mental demands of two intense weeks well. His reward is another substantial rankings leap, a rest, and a period of reflection on his progress before readjusting his sights for 2019. A great November!
