RISING Wembley star Zack Evenden turned on the style to win the boys' 18 and under Middlesex County Closed tournament at Queen's Club, West Kensington.
The 16-year-old beat rival Gideon Brink in straight sets, 7-5 6-2 in the final, and recently jumped to 49 in the under-18 national rankings.
"I'm pleased with my performance because before this year I had never done well in this tournament, so it shows that I'm improving," said Zack.
"Things are going really well for me at the moment. I'm in a new routine of constant training so it's tough, but I'm determined to get there."
Zack, who identifies his strength as his attacking and playing on the front foot, recently began full-time training at Westway High Performance Centre in Ladbroke Grove.
He also reached the semi-finals of the Summer Grand Prix in the National Tennis Centre at Roehampton, a lofty achievement against some of the country's most talented young players.
"I just want to keep improving, and get a men's world ranking," added Zack.
"I'm hoping to take part in a few British tours this year, which would be good because they are at a really high level.
