Argentina: IC Junior Challenge South America Champion

Argentina overturned 3-1 deficit against Chile to win the IC Junior Challenge South America

Chile and Argentina were the “finalists” in the IC Junior Challenge South America. Both countries won their first match against Uruguay. On Friday, Argentina’s team defeated Uruguay 5-1 and on Saturday Chile did the same in a very tight match determined in a mixed doubles Championship Tiebreak.

The tournament was held in “Club de Golf Valle Escondido” in Santiago, Chile, watched by an attentive audience comprising the IC of Argentina, Chile and Uruguay delegations and tennis celebrities including Jaime Fillol, Jaime Pinto and Marcelo Filippini. The Chilean team was 3-1 up on the score after winning both girls’ singles and one of the boys’ singles, but Argentina had other plans. They won both doubles and took the series to a mixed doubles championship tiebreak. Fernanda Astete with Geronimo Barrios for Chile and Melany Krywoj with Genaro Olivieri for Argentina fought a very close deciding rubber. The result: Argentina won the tiebreak 10-8 qualifying to “The IC World-wide Finals” at Wimbledon 2014.

In the closing ceremony, together with awarding the teams, the captains of the respective ICs awarded Fernanda Astete (Chile) and Federico Lopez (Uruguay) with the Sportsmanship Award. Jaime Fillol and Marcelo Filippini congratulated and encouraged all the players to continue with the exemplary behaviour they showed over the tournament.

The tournament was sponsored by the Chilean Tennis Federation, Grupo Fillol, OB Group, K-Express, Fire Stop Systems, Dunlop, Inmobiliaria Quecall, PrendeLED y British Chilean Chamber of Commerce and the IC Council.
