TENNIS player Michael Davis continued his surge towards Wimbledon by powering past Venezuela's David Souto in the final of an International Tennis Federation tournament in Alicante, Spain.
The 18-year-old swept past Souto 7-5 6-1 to record his second ITF junior event victory in a month following his triumph in Trinidad and Tobago.
He had to endure the passionate home crowds in the earlier rounds when he played and beat Spanish players Alberto Rodriguez-Cervantes (6-3 6-2), Pablo Carreno-Busta (7-6 7-6), and Ismael Rodriguez-Ramos (6-7 6-l 6-0).
He also saw off Czech player Jakub Cymorek 7-5 6-3 in the first round.
It has moved the teenager - who currently lives in America where he is a member of the IMG Academy - up to a world ITF ranking of l05 and is a major boost for his bid to win a place in the draw for the Junior Wimbledon tournament.
The tournament takes place during the second week of the All England Club's prestigious competition.
Davis - who trains with Woodford Wells Tennis Club and also does his fitness training at Connaught Gym, Chingford, when he is back in the UK - also linked up with fellow Brit Faris Akhazzan for the doubles in Spain.
The pair reached the semi-finals before losing 6-4 3-6 3-6.
