Alex Eala has made history by becoming the first female player from the Philippines to win a Grand Slam singles title. The young star, a student of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar produced an immaculate display at the US Open, where she did not drop a single set and beat Czech player Lucie Havlíčková (third seed) in the final, 6-2, 6-4.


Eala won her first singles Grand Slam at Flushing Meadows having won two doubles titles in previous years. In 2020 she produced a huge upset by winning the Australian Open team event at just 14 years of age alongside Indonesian player Priska Madelyn Nugroho and repeated the feat the following year with Oksana Selekhmeteva at Roland Garros, where she would reach the semi-finals in singles.


Alexandra Eala, who reached number 2 in the world on the Junior tour, has now received invitations to play in the qualifiers of the Miami Open and the Mutua Madrid Open. The young Filipino stunned the tennis world by winning her first professional title at 15 years of age in the ITF tournament played at her “home”, the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar. Her progression has been constant and in 2022 she won her second ITF title in Thailand.



This great result in New York came with more good news for the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar with success in the male Junior draw for Martín Landaluce, a Madrid player coached by Óscar Burrieza with a scholarship at the Academy, whose facilities he regularly uses as his training camp.


Alex Eala is one of the stars of the documentary “Rafa Nadal Academy” which is available on Movistar + and Amazon.
