Alex Eala and partner Priska Nugroho were simply dominant on the first day of their Wimbledon juniors doubles debut.
The Filipina-Indonesian duo hardly broke a sweat in demolishing the tandem of Japan’s Erika Matsuda and United States’ Valencia Xu, 6-0, 6-0, in London Wednesday night (Manila time).
They needed only 32 minutes to sweep the match.
This is the second time that Eala and Nugroho teamed up in a Grand Slam event. They are eyeing to replicate their success in 2020 when they copped the Australian Open Juniors doubles title.
Eala, the world no. 3 in juniors ranking, is also strutting her stuff in the singles event.
She made quick work of Solana Sierra of Argentina, 6-2, 6-4, on Monday to officially mark her much-awaited debut in tennis’ oldest Grand Slam.
She will next face Spaniard Ane Mintegi Del Olmo in the second round.
