U10 Champions 2017 – Results

“The Champions” Under 10 Tournament, presented by Forest Hill Real Estate and Scotiabank wrapped up last weekend at the Aviva Centre in Toronto. The event saw 100 of the top Under 10 competitors in the province compete for $20,000 worth of private coaching from their pro. The two winners, one boy and one girl, received $6,000 worth of private coaching over a two year period, with the two finalists receiving $4,000 worth of private coaching each. 

“The Champions” is the idea of Murray Rubin, a life-long tennis enthusiast and member of the York Racquets Club in Toronto. Mr. Rubin has donated over $70,000 to be used to pay for the one-on-one coaching of the young winners and finalists - $20,000 per year, over a two year period. This year the Forest Hill Real Estate and Scotiabank have also generously supported the event. 

“Canada is on the world map now,” says tournament sponsor David Fingold, president of Forest Hill Real Estate. “This is really the first time we’ve had players of that quality, and the young people see that. Some of them want to become the next Milos or the next Genie. It’s the same thing as when I was growing up and you wanted to be the next Frank Mahovlich or Rocket Richard.”

After three full days of competition and over 240 matches, the final results for the Championship flight were as follows:

Girls U10 final: Sarah Gutkowski def. Amy Mucea, 4-1, 4-1
Boys U10 final: Michael Gutkowski def. Mikael Arseneault, 4-2, 2-4, 4-2
