Filipina tennis ace Alexandra Eala teamed up anew with her Indonesian doubles partner Priska Nugroho by scoring a double-bagel victory in the first round of the 2021 Wimbledon girls’ doubles tournament on Wednesday, July 7 in London.

They blanked the pair of unseeded Japanese Erika Matsuda and American Valencia Xu, 6-0, 6-0, to keep their hopes off for another Grand Slam title.

Barely shedding sweat in 32 minutes, the duo made short work of the game, harmonizing anew their bond after capturing the 2020 Australian Open girls doubles crown.#
