23 September, 2019
Živa Falkner won in doubles in the World Junior Tennis Tournament (ITF) of the highest A-rank in Cape Town, South Africa. She finished third in the individual standings. With this remarkable success she has been ranked 64th in the World Junior Tennis Rankings, enabling her to enter the main tournaments of all four junior grand slams and to participate in professional membership tournaments.
In the doubles Živa celebrated the victory together with Matilda Mutavdžić of Great Britain. In the singles only the excellent Czech Linda Fruhvirtova stopped her in the semi-final match. As this was the highest ranked tournament in the World Junior Tennis Rankings, all of Živa’s opponents were very strong, so this success shows the exceptional quality of Živa Falkner’s performance and the excellent tactics and strategy prepared for each individual match by Živa’s coach Gordan Janković.
