Fantastic win for Akira Santillan

25 April 2015 | 12:04pm

Fantastic win today for GSC’s highest ranking Junior and Japan’s #1 Junior, Akira Santillan, wildcarded into this $10k ITF Futures event in Bangkok. Another win, 63 62 today versus fellow Japanese Takeuchi (this event’s #5 seed), taking him to a 7 match winning streak. He reached the final after rising through Qualifying & without dropping a set. Huge congratulations to Aki on his first ITF Futures title of the year – won’t be his last. Aki was very gracious in receiving his Winner’s Trophy in Bangkok with thanks to the event sponsor Chang, thanks to Steve Koon, Impact Tennis Academy, and his Dad Dean, and everyone supporting him. Good work, Aki.
