MANILA, Philippines—Alex Eala continued her bullish run in Mallorca with a quick win over Spain’s Alba Carillo Marin, 6-2, 6-3, in the second round of the W15 Manacor ITF Rafael Nadal Academy World Tennis Tour second leg Thursday.

This was Eala’s seventh straight win in her professional debut as she cruised to the quarterfinals. She ousted the No. 2 seed, Sweden’s Mirjam Bjorklund, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 the day before.

The 15-year-old captured her first professional title in the first leg of the Manacor tournament when she beat Yvonne Cavalle-Reimers of Spain, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2.

Eala is looking to follow up her title in the second leg of the Manacor competition that’s being held at Rafael Nadal Academy.

The Filipino youngster has so far continued her momentum from a stellar 2020 where she won the Australian Open girls’ doubles tournament and a semifinal finish in the French Open singles girls’ tournament.
