Wilson Junior Players Rise to the Occasion at Roland Garros
Wilson was well represented during the junior trophy ceremonies at Roland Garros. As Roger Federer was in his quest to make history on Court Philippe Chatrier, Wilson On the Rise players Kristina Mladenovic, Daniel Berta, Elena Bogdan, and Dino Marcan were showing their skills on Court Suzanne Lenglen at Roland Garros.
16 year old Kristina Mladenovic used her [K]Tour racket to take Girls’ Singles title with flair as she did not drop a single set along the way and defeated Gavrilova 6-3 6-2 in the final.
Swedish teenager Daniel Berta used his [K]Six-One 95 racket to take home the Boys Singles title after defeating Mina in a hard fought 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 final.
Using his [K]Blade 98, Dino Marcan and partner Draganja volleyed their way to the Boys Doubles title after defeating [K]Blade Tour player Guiherme Clezar and partner Huang 63 62 in the final.
Wilson [K]Tour player Elena Bogdan and partner Lertcheewakarn defeat Babos and Watson in a nail biter 10-8 third set super tiebreaker to win the Girls Doubles title. “Roland Garros was a successful event for our Wilson On the Rise team. We have some outstanding juniors and we are excited to watch them continue to develop their game to become our next tour stars,” states Global Tour Director Massimo Calvelli.
To highlight Wilson’s top juniors and prospects under the age of 21, Wilson has created a new section of the Wilson website called Wilson On the Rise. Wilson On the Rise players are Wilson’s top junior players and prospects under the age of 21.
“It’s so cool to have a profile on the same website as Roger Federer,” says 2009 French Girls Singles Champion Kristina Mladenovic. “Wilson has an unbelievable tennis history and I just love being part of the Wilson team.”
