Day thirteen: Searle crowned Boys' singles winner; Hewett finishes runner-up to Tokito Oda

The final day of the Championships saw Henry Searle become the first British Junior Wimbledon Boys' singles champion since 1962 after beating world No.7 Yaroslav Demin while wheelchair star Alfie Hewett finish runner-up to world No.1 Tokito Oda.


Searle – a 17-year-old from Wolverhampton - has become the first British boy since Stanley Matthew in 1962 to lift the Boys’ singles trophy in SW19 and even more impressively, did so without dropping a single set.

Stepping onto Court 1 for the biggest match of his young career, Searle 3-4 as he staved off three break points at 3-4 before finding a crucial break to love on Demin's serve to edge the lead.

With the pressure of serving for the set on his shoulders, the big-serving lefty crunched a 132mph serve out wide before hitting an inside out forehand into the corner of court to give him the advantage.

From there, the Brit needed only one break in the second set before closing in on the title in one hour and 25 minutes to etch his name into the British tennis history books.

However, it wasn't meant to be today for world No.2 Hewett in the men's wheelchair singles final as he lost out to Tokito Oda, 6-4, 6-2.


Entering the contest with a chance to lift his maiden Wimbledon men's wheelchair singles title and re-gain his position as world No.1, Hewett made a fast start but 17-year-old Oda soon shook off the nerves as he clinched five consecutive games to take the first set.

Despite the Brit finding an early break in the second, Oda fought back to gain a double break and eventually wrap up the title.


Meanwhile, Isabelle Lacy and Hannah Klugman finished runners-up in this year's Girls' doubles final after losing out 6-4, 7-5 to Czech duo Alena Kovackova and Laura Samsonova.

The British duo withstood three break points to hold serve and make it 4-3 in the first set before the Czech duo capitalised on a further two break point opportunities and eventually take the set.

After falling a double break down in the second, the set looked out of reach for Klugman and Lacy; but in looking to enjoy every last second of their Wimbledon experience the British duo fought their way back into the contest by levelling the scoreboard to 5-5.

However, one last blow from Kovavkova and Samsonova saw them clinch the decisive break that would lead them to the Girls’ doubles title in SW19.
