Gold medallist in both the Junior Girls’ Team and Junior Girls’ Doubles events earlier in the week but having to settle for second place in her initial stage group, Brazil’s Tamyres Fukase emerged the surprise winner of the Junior Girls’ Singles title at the 2018 South American Junior and Cadet Championships in the Chilean capital city of Santiago on Sunday 25th March.

She started proceedings as the no.8 seed.

At the final hurdle she accounted for Paraguay’s Leyla Gomez, the no.2 seed (10-12, 11-9, 11-8, 11-5, 11-4), having at the quarter-final beaten colleague, Livia Lima, the no.5 seed, the player with whom she won the Junior Girls’ Doubles title the previous day (6-11, 11-9, 8-11, 11-5, 11-6, 11-6).

A place in the penultimate round reserved, the good form continued and at the expense of another compatriot; she accounted for Luana Souza (13-11, 11-3, 11-7, 11-4), a player was in sparkling form.

Listed at no.21 in the order of merit, in the opening round she had beaten Peru’s Kelly Santur, the no.4 seed (11-9, 7-11, 16-18, 13-11, 11-5, 11-7), prior to ousting Ecuador’s Nathaly Paredes, the top seed, one round later (11-3, 12-10, 8-11, 11-9, 6-11, 11-8).

Impressive from Tamyres Fukase, it had been the very same in the lower half of the draw for Leyla Gomez; in the latter stages she had accounted for Colombia’s Marta Casas (11-1, 11-2, 7-11, 11-6, 6-11, 11-4), prior to ending the hopes of Fernanda Kodama, like Tamyres Fukase from Brazil (11-4, 9-11, 11-8, 11-9, 8-11, 11-5)

Notably, three of the four semi-finalists were from Brazil; all causing upsets to reach the latter stages. Fernanda Kodama who started play as the 22nd highest rated player in the competition had finished in first place in her group ahead of Kelly Santur, before recording wins in the main draw in opposition to Argentina’s Daniela Zapatero (8-11, 11-9, 11-8, 11-4, 11-2) and Chile’s Claudia Infante (11-7, 11-2, 11-5, 11-4).

Brazil’s future is in promising hands.
