Ann Li has had a very exciting month of July. Just two weeks ago, the 17-year old came in second place at Wimbledon in the Girl’s Juniors Finals. Li’s good fortune continued this afternoon in Evansville, as she took home the singles championship in the Deaconess Women’s Hospital Tennis Classic.
“It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, but it’s been lots of fun,” Li said after her win.
Li defeated Marcela Zacarias in the three-set final, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. After falling in the first set, it was a back-and-forth battle in the final two sets that led to a victory for Li.
This is Li’s first ITF Pro Circuit Singles title.
