Alex Eala is excited to see action in the junior event of the US Open at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.

In a social media post, the 17-year-old netter expressed her excitement, saying that she is eager to win again in the junior ranks after several professional tourneys this year.

She last played in the division during the 2021 US Open losing to Sebastianna Scilipoti of Switzerland in the quarterfinals.

Eala, who is seeded 10th in this tourney, is clashing with Annabelle Xu of Canada in the girls’ singles event at press time.

“Good to be back at the US Open! I play my first match at 11am on Court 6. Let’s Go!” Eala posted on her Facebook account.

Eala, the Rafael Nadal Academy scholar, is eyeing her first singles junior title, as she already won two in girls’ doubles when she partnered with Priska Nugroho in the 2020 Australian Open and teamed up with Oksana Selekhmeteva in the 2021 French Open.

Eala, who reached her highest Women’s Tennis Association ranking at No. 280 last August, is currently ranked World No. 297 with two pro titles under her belt.
