Melios Efstathiou - Quarterfinalist of AO17



Melbourne, 26.01.2017. - Melios has just finished his most successful tournament ever. His first participation on some of Gran Slam Series tournament was nothing less than a tennis fairy tale. Starting from the Qualification Draw, Melios has made two wins and qualified for MD where he continued with excellent games and recorded 3 more wins, all of them on the same way - falling the first set to his opponents. 

In Round 16, Melios has played against Vale (POR), a player that is positioned around Top10 world junior players and produced his biggest win at AO17 - 6:7(2) 6:4 6:4. and passed into QF phase where Oliel (ISR) was better and won with 6:4 6:4.

Great achievement of our best junior player presently !! By playing QF round, Melios has equalized the success of Petros Chrysochos, which did the same, back in 2014.
