Milton wins international doubles title


South Wales tennis star Josh Milton and his Dutch playing partner won the doubles final in the International Tennis Federation Futures tournament in Croatia.

Milton, from Rhoose, and Tim Van Terheijden won their first three matches in Zagreb in straight sets and then defeated the German No.2 seeds, Kevin Krawietz and Marcel Zimmermann 7-6(6), 5-7, 10-4 in the final.

Zimmermann had put Milton out of the singles on his way to reaching the final.

Milton, aged 21, is Wales’ top-ranked senior player, and formed part of a two-man Wales team in last year’s Commonwealth Games. He also won last summer’s AEGON Pro Series event at Roehampton.

“This is a tremendous achievement for Josh,“ said Peter Drew, chief executive of Tennis Wales. “It’s another significant victory to add to his growing list of achievements and to the achievements of Welsh tennis more broadly.”

Last month, James Hignett from Cardiff won the AEGON Winter National Tour 18U Finals at Roehampton.
