Canadian Brayden Schnur’s impressive run at the Bruno Agostinelli Futures at White Oaks Resort in Niagara-on-the-Lake came to a close on Sunday, as the 22-year-old from Pickering, Ont. couldn’t contain the tournament’s No. 1 seed Adam El Mihdawy in the championship match.

Schnur fell to his American opponent 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 in two hours and 12 minutes. While Schnur didn’t manage to capture his second Futures singles title of the season, he did rack up 10 aces in the contest to add to the week’s running total in his “Aces for Bruno” campaign.

At the start of the week, the former UNC standout pledged to donate $5 for every ace to go towards the late Bruno Agostinelli Jr, who was also a NCAA athlete and worked as a tennis coach. Schnur recorded 51 aces throughout the tournament to reach $255.

While the No. 7 seed fell just short of the singles title, he did secure the doubles title with partner Filip Peliwo on Friday. The Canadian duo defeated No. 2 seeds Ivan Endara of Ecuador and Chile’s Nicolas Jarry to capture Schnur’s third ITF doubles title.

The Bruno Agostinelli Futures ran from September 17 – 25 at White Oaks Resort in Niagara on the Lake. For the complete final draws and full results, visit the ITF tournament page here.
