Following a very productive stint in the recently-concluded Australian Open, Filipina junior tennister Alexandra Eala has risen to fourth in the ITF Junior Girls World Rankings.
The 14-year old Eala began 2020 ranked 9th in the world, but put on quite an impressive outing in her Australian Open competitions, reaching the third round in the Juniors Girls Singles tournament, and then taking home the crown in the Juniors Girls Doubles event, alongside long-time partner Priska Nugroho of Indonesia.
The work doesn't stop for Eala, as she and her brother Miko head right back to Spain to continue training at the Prestigious Rafa Nadal Academy in preparation for upcoming tournaments.
