George Morgan, who won the boys’ doubles title in July at the All England Club, has set his sights on the men’s singles prize in the future.
He and Croatia’s Maté Pavic came from a set down to beat top seeds, fellow Brit Oliver Golding and his Czech partner, Jiri Vesely, in three sets, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5.
The pair had previously beaten Stockport’s Liam Broady, last years winner in the same contest and his Slovakian partner Filip Horansky.
George said: “It’s my home tournament and there’s so much history at the tournament.
“It was great to win Wimbledon. When we scored the winning point the first thing I did was go to Maté and congratulate him,” he said.
Morgan and Pavic have been playing together since January, winning the first tournament they played together, before the Australian Open.
However, the team is not long term.
“Myself and Maté will not play together next year – we won’t be at the same tournaments,” George confirmed.
George wants to focus on the singles tour in the future.
“My ultimate goal is to get into the top 50 of the ATP rankings. My ranking is improving so that’s what I’m aiming for.”
With London 2012 on the horizon, does George see himself competing for Team GB?
“It’s a bit early for me to go to the Olympics I think, but I can try. There’s a lot of good young players coming through so I think Great Britain will have more top level players than we do right now.”
