Indian-American Samir Banerjee on Sunday won the Wimbledon boys’ title at Number 1 Court. He defeated Victor Lilov of America by 7-5, 6-3 in the finals to lift the trophy at All England Club. For the first time since 2014, and only the second time since 1977, there was an all-American conclusion to the boys’ singles event. Notably, both 17-year-olds were unseeded for the Championships. The first set between the duo went back and forth, but in the end, Banerjee managed to hold his own to win the set by 7-5. In the second set, Banerjee was in cruise mode as he broke the early serve of Lilov and completed his triumph over the compatriot in just 1 hour and 21 minutes.

In girls’ singles final, German Nastasja Mariana Schunk faces Ane Mintegi Del Olmo of Spain in another battle of unseeded 17-year-olds. Spain have had success in the ladies’ singles, with Conchita Martinez and Garbine Muguruza each lifting the title, but a Spaniard is yet to win the girls’ singles title.

Later, Abedallah Shelbayh has a chance to become the first Jordanian Grand Slam winner at any level when he teams with Spain’s Daniel Rincon in the boys’ doubles final against Edas Butvilas of Lithuania and Spain’s Alejandro Manzanera Pertusa.
