Alex Eala is continuing her winning streak at the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Women’s World Tour, bagging her second straight quarterfinals spot at the W15 Manacor Singles.

The 15-year-old tennis champion from the Philippines now carries a 7-0 win-loss scorecard in the 2021 tennis season after overpowering the 24-year-old Alba Carrillo Marin of Spain in their Round 2 match on January 28 at the hardcourt of Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar.

The left-handed Eala, bearing an ITF Singles ranking at 1670 (January 25 ranking), dominated the right-handed Marin (ITF Singles #56) in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3, to clinch anew a quarterfinals slot earlier today.

It was just a week ago when Eala clinched her historic first quarterfinals appearance in a professional tennis tour of the ITF during the first leg of the W15 Manacor when she won her Round 2 match against the tour’s No. 1 seeded from Australia.

The Filipino tennis sensation went on to win the tournament to earn her first professional championship title on January 24.

Alex Eala joined the W15 Manacor tour as a Main Draw Junior Reserved player by virtue of her being ranked the World No. 3 ITF Junior. She turned professional in 2020. The reigning Australian Open Doubles Champion opened her second title bid with a strong win against the tour’s #2 Wednesday.

Alex Eala is set to face the tour’s 7th-seeded Ylena In-Albon of Sweden in the quarterfinals in her bid to enter the semifinals of the W15 Manacor.
