THE FLATS – Andrew Li, a Georgia Tech men’s tennis signee from Hong Kong, China, captured his first ITF junior tournament championship over the weekend by winning an ITF Junior event in Hong Kong.
Li won the singles title and teamed with Jack Wong of Hong Kong to win the doubles title as well. Li is ranked No. 164 currently in the ITF world junior rankings. He has an 8-1 singles record and a 5-1 doubles record in 2015.
The top seed in the Grade 4 event, Li never lost a set in the 32-player bracket, taking the championship match over Japan’s Rio Naguchi by a 6-4, 6-1 score on Saturday. He and Wong also were the top-seeded doubles team, and played to a third set only in the semi-final match against Achad Imam Maruf of Indonesia and Evan Zhu of the United States. They defeated the Taiwanese duo of Shao-Min Ko and Chung Han Tsai.
