TALLAHASSEE, December 7, 2015
Daniel Nguyen clinched his eighth ITF Future career title, winning Sunday’s final of the US-$ 15,000 Tallahassee Futures presented by Visit Florida against fellow US-American Ryan Shane 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.
The 25-year-old second seed withstood eight aces, hitting three of his own and capitalized on seven of his 20 break point chances to seal victory in one hour and 50 minutes.
“The tournament was run really well for it being their first time. It’s my last tournament of the year and it feels good to finish strong and on a positive note. I’ll take a few days off and then get back out training,” the winner told afterwards.
Nguyen takes away 27 ATP ranking points as well as US-$ 1,950 in prize money lifting the last Future trophy of the season on US-American soil. The hard court indoor tournament in Florida was the 35th taking place in the country in 2015.
On Saturday, US-American pair of Nicolas Meister and Eric Quigley captured the doubles title, winning 6-3, 7-5 against Mexicans Daniel Garza and Tigre Hank in one hour and 20 minutes.
