Thiago Seyboth Wild is ending his junior career with a bang…
The 18-year-old Brazilian tennis player, competing in his last junior Grand Slam, defeated Italy’s Lorenzo Musetti 6-1, 2-6, 6-2 at the US Open to become the boys’ champion.
Seyboth Wild, already focused on his pro career, becomes the first winner from Brazil at Flushing Meadows.
Seyboth Wildwas much more effective behind his initial shot and managed to overcome a poor second set and a 2-0 deficit in the third to win the match and lift the championship trophy. Although he suffered three breaks, it wasn’t enough for Musetti to end on the winning side, struggling in his service games to face 10 break points and give his serve away five times.
Seyboth Wild is ranked inside the Top 500 on the ATP list and has been one of the best players born in 2000.
