The first final was contested on Wednesday when Cheyenne Chin Chow was the most convincing of the three (final) winners with her 6-1, 6-2 triumph over Carissa Rudolfo for the under-16 crown.

“Lease” runner-up Yin Lee Assang defeated Kristen Marticorena of Guatemala 4-1, 5-3 in the under-12 final and national under-16 and 18 champ Nabeel Mohammed was a 6-2, 6-2 winner over Keshan Moonasar for the under-18 crown.
