John Millman and Abbie Myers have scooped titles in what was a stellar week for Australians on the ITF Circuit. At the weekend, Millman clinched his second successive tournament crown with victory at the ITF Futures event in Ansung, Korea, while Myers went all the way to the $10,000 title in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
A further three Aussies – Blake Mott, Andrew Whittington and Dane Propoggia – reached Futures finals around the globe. Millman continues his impressive comeback from shoulder surgery, which began when he returned to the courts in April after an 11-month absence.
In addition to his title in Ansung and the week before Chuncheon, the 25-year-old has also reached a further three Futures quarterfinals, taking his win loss record since his return to 16-6, including his last 10 straight.
“Great to get another win in Korea. Nice test on the dirt!” he tweeted after beating New Zealand’s Michael Venus 6-1 7-5 in the final of the claycourt event. Myers, meanwhile, produced two come-from-behind victories en route to her first ever professional title, including in the final, where she overcame lucky loser Yixuan Li 3-6 6-3 6-0.
