The JC Ferrero Equelite Academy puts the finishing touch to a great week with two professional circuit titles.
Mario Vilella win his first ATP Challenger and Carlos Alcaraz achieved his first ITF Futures
Week full of great results for Acadamia JC Ferrero Equelite’s athletes. Along with good base results in different national tournaments, the older players have excelled in the international circuit. We are talking about Pablo Carreno, Mario Viella, Carlos Alcaraz and Jordan Correira who have achieved important results last week.
Pablo Carreño has reached the semifinals of the Hamburg European Open ATP 500 tournament, defeating Fabio Fognini in the quarterfinals and winning his first victory against a TOP 10 ATP this season. Carreño’s season has been marked by injuries but in Hamburg has shown a great level and no discomfort. A great tournament to get strong to the American tour.
The Brazilian Jordan Correia has reached his second consecutive final on the Futures circuit. First in the 25000$ of Gandia and then in the 15000$ of Casablanca.
In spite of the good results of both players, they are not the most outstanding results of the week as far as tennis progression of the players of the academy is concerned:
Mario Viella conquered his first ATP Challenger in Prague and reached his new best ranking on the verge of entering the Top200ATP (current ranking 208 ATP). Another impressive result was reach from the young promising Carlos Alcaraz. He has managed to win his first professional title by beating the Russian Skatov in the ITF 25000$ Denia. Alcaraz wins the title with 16 years and 2 months. A record of precocity only surpassed in Spain by Rafael Nadal who achieved it with 16 years and 1 month.
Juan Carlos Ferrero has been plethoric before the great performance of these players of the academy: “I am proud of the good results of our players. What they have achieved is not easy and it is the result of working hard and not giving up. Not only have they achieved great results but also they have shown a great tennis while competing. I am very happy for everyone. Mario and Carlos have each achieved a very important title in their careers, and Pablo and Jordan are achieving important victories and competing again at a high level after injuries. Congratulations to everyone, to them and to all the team behind them. We have to keep working.”
