The first UTR Pro Tennis Series event in Adelaide came to an end on Wednesday with Li Tu taking out the tournament’s first title.
Tu (Royston Park, SA) defeated close friend Jack Schipanski (North Brighton, SA) to win the event.
Tu raced out of the blocks, serving strongly to take the first set in just 22 minutes. Schipanski steadied at the beginning of the second before Tu held on to win the match 6-1 6-3.
“I thought it was a great match. I am good friends with Jack, so it is always great playing a friend and having the fun side of the competition,” Tu said following the match.
“The score line doesn’t suggest how close it was, I felt like it was actually really close but I just got lucky on some of the big points.
“During these times, it’s pretty hard to find motivation, but an event like this has really got everyone going.
“It was a great event, the venue is awesome and it was really cool to have it live streamed. The setup with everything was really well done.”
The next UTR Pro Tennis Series event in Adelaide will commence on Sunday 19 July 2020.
