Egypt’s highest ranked tennis player Mohamed Safwat has won his first ATP tournament at the Launceston International in Australia against Alex Bolt in his home country.

The 29 year old Safwat is enduring the form of his career right now, having just reached his all time highest ranking of 157th after reaching the 1st round of the Australian Open.

He decided to strike while the iron’s hot and continued playing in Australia, participating in the 2020 Launceston International straight after the Australian Open.

After initially facing some unseeded local players in the early rounds, Safwat took some significant scalps when he knocked out the former world number 154 in Liam Broady in the quarter finals before the Belgian former number 97 in Kimmer Coppejans.

This set up a final against Alex Bolt, who is one of the highest rated Australian players on his home soil, providing a stern test for Safwat.

It proved to be quite a routine win for Safwat as he took both sets by scores of 7-6 and 6-1.

The win means that Safwat has won his first piece of ATP silverware in his career, and as a result he is expected to climb into the top 150 in the world in the next ranking update.
