Su Jeong Jang from Korea has achieved the rare double by grabbing both the women’s singles and doubles titles at the Mildura Grand International at the Mildura Lawn Tennis Club.
Jang overcame young Australian Alison Bai in straight sets 61 63 in little over 80 minutes to take her second ITF Pro Circuit singles title in three weeks.
The Korean Fed Cup player was able to cover the court smoothly and used a mixture of backhand slices and top spin to manoeuvre her opponent around as Bai found it difficult to get into the match struggling to recapture the same form that she was able to display in her epic three-hour match in the previous days semifinal.
After the match Jang said she was really happy to succeed on grass and hoped now to challenge for a qualifying place at Roland Garros and Wimbledon.
