Jacobi Bain achieves double wins in singles and doubles final matches today in Honduras ITF Junior Tennis Bowl.  The young tennis athlete had a very impressive path to the singles finals.  He blazed through the round robin with a perfect record not losing a set. He received a bye in the main draw and faced a local Hondurian Diaz in the semifinals where he was victorious 6-2,6-2 .  He then advanced to the finals where he continued his stellar run with a win over Hernandez  from Guatemala 6-1, 6-4.

 Later he teamed up with Hernandez to capture the doubles win over a local Hondurian team  6-1, 6-1.  Jacobi Bain showcased his skill and talent and brought home the singles  and doubles win in the U14 Category. We congratulate him on this journey and cheer him on as he continues  to trailblaze on the junior tennis circuit.  

Wayne Russell III also participated in this tournament in the U18 category.  He was eliminated in the qualifying rounds but his effort was commendable.  Wayne recently came off a USTA U18 win in a tournament in Florida during the summer. Continue to keep your eyes on both these players as we expect great things from both Jacobi and Wayne in the future.
