JMTA’s Sasha Lebedev captured his first ITF title last week at the Safina Cup in Prague, The Czech Republic by beating the #5 seed, Pawel Zawisza of Poland 7-5, 6-2 in the final. Though unseeded, Sasha ran through the draw, dropping only 1 set in the entire tournament. In addition, Sasha and partner, American Jean Thirouin, reached the semifinals of the 2014 Safina Cup. Sasha (who is a “blue chip” recruit on www.tennisrecruiting.net) has made a verbal commitment to attend Notre Dame in the fall of 2015.
