Following on from his title success at last week’s USA F23 Futures, Luke Bambridge and his Irish partner David O’Hare, marched on with momentum at the Winnipeg National Bank Challenger.

After sailing through to the semi-finals with a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Blaz Rola of Slovenia and Denmark's Mikael Torpegaard, the pair set up a final against Japanese duo Yusuke Takahashi and Renta Tokuda.  Luke and David went onto win the title with an impressive 6-2, 6-2 victory and lifted their second trophy in two weeks. 


Ewan Moore clinched his first doubles title of the year at the Poland F5 Futures in Mragowo with his Argentinian partner, Manuel Pena Lopez.

The pair secured a place in the final after a 6-2, 7-5 semi-final win over Zdenek Kolar of the Czech Republic and Poland's Lukasz Kozielski, and then claimed the crown following a straight-sets victory against Polish third seeds Kamil Gajewski and Szymon Walkow.


In Cantanhede, Alicia Barnett finished as a singles finalist at a $15,000 ITF tournament. Alicia overcame Spain’s Nuria Parrizas-Dias 6-4, 6-2 in the semi-finals, but was denied the title after Sinead Lohan of Ireland sealed a 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 win.


Emily Arbuthnott reached the final of a $15,000 ITF tournament in Amstelveen with her partner Belinda Woolcock of Australia.

After cruising past Marian Capadocia of the Philippines and Austria’s Anna-Lena Neuwrith 6-1, 6-3 in the semi-final, Emily and Belinda narrowly missed out on the title after falling 6-4, 6-4 to America’s Dasha Ivanova and Rosalie Van De Hoek of the Netherlands.
