Tennis: Jarry joins grandfather as ATP title-winner with Swedish Open win
Published in Ahram Online on 22 - 07 - 2019

Chile's Nicolas Jarry joined his grandfather in the ATP title-winners club on Sunday, beating Juan Ignacio Londero 7-6(7) 6-4 to clinch his maiden crown at the Swedish Open.
Jaime Fillol, who claimed six tour-level titles between 1971 and 1982, introduced the sport to his grandson in Santiago and the 23-year-old repaid the faith with a breakthrough title in his third career final.
"He's one of the best Chilean tennis players. He taught me the sport since I was little. He took me to great tournaments," Jarry had said about his grandfather, who reached a career-high ranking of number 14 in 1974, earlier this week.
"I had chances back in Geneva (earlier this season) and I think this time it went to my side. I'm extremely happy. I've been working for this for a long time and it really means a lot," he added after the win.
"We're a big team back home and I really appreciate everybody who's been behind me for a long time."
