Sumit Nagal wins Wimbledon Junior Boys' Doubles - Youngster Sumit Nagal continued India's winning streak at the Wimbledon, winning the boys doubles junior trophy with Vietnamese partner Nam Hoang Ly.

Nagal and his eighth seed partner defeated the fourth seeds Akira Santillan and Reilly Opelka 7 -6(4) 6-4 in the final that lasted 63 minutes.

Nagal and Nam Hoang Ly broke their opponents in the 10th game of the second set and that proved decisive in the result of the match.

Yuki Bhambri was the last Indian tennis player to win at the top level in junior tennis when he won the Australian Open boys singles title in 2009.

Ramanathan Krishnan (Wimbledon, 1954), Ramesh Krishnan (Wimbledon and French Open, 1979) and Leander Paes (Wimbledon 1990, U.S. Open 1991) are the other singles champions from India.

In 2003, Sania Mirza had won the Wimbledon girls doubles title with Russian partner Alisa Kleybanova.
