Harriet Dart by James Jordan Photography
The AEGON Junior Internationals in Newcastle and Solihull concluded on Saturday with victory for British juniors at both tournaments.
At the ITF 18U tournament in Newcastle, the boys' singles title went to fifth seed Myles Orton, who defeated Johan Tatlot of France 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.
The 17 year-old had knocked out the top seed Joshua Page in the quarter-finals after recovering from a set down and reached the final with a another three set victory over the unseeded Luke Johnson.
There was better news for Page in the doubles though as he partnered Jordan Angus to the title with a 6-3, 6-2 defeat of Tatlot and Calvin Hemery.
There was a guaranteed British winner in the girls' singles going into finals day on Saturday with third seed Harriet Dart facing the unseeded Georgia Craven.
Craven had beaten second seed Pippa Horn to reach the final but Dart was too strong for her in Saturday's final, claiming the title with a 6-3, 7-6(7) success.
Success in the singles for Dart ensured the 14 year-old ended the week with a clean sweep of titles after partnering Horn to victory in the doubles, winning 6-4, 6-7(3), [10-7] against Alice Keddie and Yuriko Miyazaki.
Meanwhile at the Tennis Europe 14U tournament in Solihull, Saturday’s boys’ singles final was between second seed Bjorn Thomson and last week’s runner-up in Edinburgh, Luke Oakley.
The title went to the second seed, who won a close contest in a Championship Tie-Break 7-6(7), 2-6, 10-3 to secure the victory.
Oakley and Thomson joined forces to win the doubles title, beating Jay Clarke and Omari Owens-Maxwell 7-6(3), 6-2.
The girls' singles title also went the way of a seed as top seed Jasmine Amber Asghar comfortably beat the Romanian second seed Karola Bejenaru 6-1, 6-1.
Asghar also won the doubles title with Eden Richardson after claiming a 6-1, 6-1 win against Ellie-Rose Griffiths and Emily Smith.
