Her steady rise followed after a string of quarterfinals finishes in tournaments in Spain and most recently in France.

The 15-year-old Eala just last month won her first professional title.

Eala’s breakthrough propelled her into the top 1000 of the rankings earlier this month.

Next up for Eala, a scholar from the Rafa Nadal Academy, is the W25 Manacor tournament back in Spain.
