Canadian Peter Polansky picked up his 15th career professional title with a huge win on Sunday, as he upset the top seed in the $25,000 Richmond Country Club Futures final. The 28-year-old Thornhill, Ont. native defeated Chinese Taipei’s Jason Jung 6-1, 6-4 in the championship match. It was the third time that Jung and Polansky faced off on the pro circuit, and Polansky’s win upped their head-to-head record to 3-0 in the Canadian’s favour.
Polansky’s singles victory came on the heels of capturing the doubles title with fellow Canadian Philip Bester. The pair unhinged Britain’s Farris Fathi Gosea and Tim Kopinski of the United States 7-6(2), 6-2 on Friday.
However, Polansky won’t have too long to bask in the glory of his phenomenal results in Richmond. He heads to slightly east to compete in the $25,000 Kelowna Futures at Kelowna Parkinson Recreation Centre. He joins Bester and fellow Canadian Filip Peliwo in the main draw of the event that runs from June 27 – July 3.
