Junior player Xiaofei Wang (China) beat Jack Pinnington-Jones (United Kingdom) in this year’s Longines Future Tennis Aces (a two-day tournament, held in Paris, that fosters and showcases the talent of 16 participants, age 13 and under). Pics here:
Both finalists also took part in an exhibition match with Arnaud Clément, patron of this year’s tournament and Michaël Llodra, and were presented with a Longines watch, a trophy, as well as an annual bursary until their 16th birthday.
Xiaofei will now have the honor of doing the coin toss for Sunday’s second match, on the Philippe-Chatrier court. Both boys’ futures look bright.
