Alex Eala, Indonesian partner sweep foes in Wimbledon juniors doubles debut

Alex Eala and partner Priska Nugroho were simply dominant on the first day of their Wimbledon juniors doubles debut.

The Filipina-Indonesian duo hardly broke a sweat in demolishing the tandem of Japan's Erika Matsuda and United States' Valencia Xu, 6-0, 6-0, in London Wednesday night (Manila time).

They needed only 32 minutes to sweep the match.

This is the second time that Eala and Nugroho teamed up in a Grand Slam event. They are eyeing to replicate their success in 2020 when they copped the  Australian Open Juniors doubles title.

Eala, the world no. 3 in juniors ranking, is also strutting her stuff in the singles event.

She made quick work of Solana Sierra of Argentina, 6-2, 6-4, on Monday to officially mark her much-awaited debut in tennis' oldest Grand Slam.

She will next face Spaniard Ane Mintegi Del Olmo in the second round.
