IMG Academy tennis alums have dominated ITF Men's Pro Circuit Futures events in California for the past two weeks. Devin Britton, Phillip Simmonds and Jordan Cox represented IMG Academy well with both singles and doubles victories.
Britton defeated Jeff Dadamo 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-2 to win the $15,000 Futures in Sacramento, Calif., on June 10, while fellow IMG alum Simmonds won the doubles title.
âI'm happy to have my first pro win,â Britton said of his victory in Sacramento.âI played well all week, and it's always nice to get your first win.â
The following week, at the $15,000 Futures in Chico, Calif., on June 17, IMG Academy alums continued their success. Simmonds defeated third-seeded Michael McClune 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 to win the singles title.
âThe win is really important because I was injured last year, and it's important to get my confidence back,â said Simmonds on his success in Chico. âIt's a good feeling.â
Britton partnered with fellow IMG Academy alum Jordan Cox to upset the No. 1 seeds and win the doubles title 6-7(6), 7-6(8), 10-7. Also competing in the tournaments were IMG Academy alums Philip Bester and the No. 2 seed, Greg Ouellette.
