SARASOTA, Fla. – The Sarasota Open came to a close Sunday afternoon, ending what officials have called a great week of tennis at the Longboat Key Club.

Nick Kyrgios emerged as the victor over Filip Krajinovic in a crowd-pleasing match, 7-6, (10) 6-4.

The 18 year old Australian Kyrgios is currently ranked #9 in the Australian rankings and #221 in the ATP rankings. Kyrgios has a number of credits to his honor including Juniors titles in the Roland Garros, Wimbledon and 2013 Australian Open.

Marin Draganja and Henri Kontinen took the trophy as the Doubles Champions, beating Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo and Franko Skugor 7-5, 5-7, 10-6.

With a $100,000 prize and a world class setting the Sarasota Open draws the top ranked players from around the world to compete for championship status.

With 600 volunteers and 300 ball people, officials say this tournament is a great community event.

CEO of the Sarasota Open, Anthony Driscoll, said “This is the culmination, it's all the hard work for the players both the tournament and all the volunteers who put so much effort into it. We have to plan this tournament on a year round basis.”
