Easter Bowl Champions and Former Collegians Shine in April

The eight players who won Easter Bowl titles are among those featured this month, along with former collegians collecting championships on the WTA and ATP Challenger circuits and a Russian teen collecting her third ITF women’s circuit title.

Astra Sharma
The former Vanderbilt All-American won her first WTA title last month at the MUSC Health Women’s Open in Charleston, South Carolina. The 25-year-old Australian, who reached her first WTA final in 2019, defeated top seed Ons Jabeur of Tunisia 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 in the final. Although still outside the WTA Top 100 and her career-high ranking of 86, Sharma saw her ranking go from 165 to 119 with the title. (Photo credit: MUSC/Chris Smith)
Ingrid Neel and Elixane Lechemia
The 22-year-old Neel, a former University of Florida star, and France’s Lechemia, a standout at the University of South Carolina from 2012-2015, won their first WTA doubles title this month in Bogota, Colombia. The unseeded pair defeated No. 3 seeds Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany and Mihaela Buzarnescu of Romania 6-3, 6-4 in the final. Neel and Lechemia had a total of 25 ITF Women’s doubles titles between them, all with other partners, prior to 2021. (Photo credit: MUSC/Chris Smith)
Jenson Brooksby
The 20-year-old Californian, an ace in February for his first ATP Challenger title, added two more this month in Florida. Unseeded, the former Baylor Bear defeated No. 5 seed Denis Kudla 6-3, 6-3 in the final on Orlando’s hard courts, then switched to the Har-Tru in Tallahassee, where he beat Bjorn Fratangelo 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in the championship match. Now 19-2 at the Challenger level this year, the ATP No. 166 is having the best start to a Challenger season since Kei Nishikori in 2010. (Photo credit: USTA)
