West Hampstead’s Harriet Dart won the $25,000 doubles title in Goyang, South Korea, on Saturday.
The 19-year-old, who attended Sarum Hall Primary School in Swiss Cottage and then the Royal School in Hampstead, teamed up with fellow Brit Freya Christie to win the final 6-3, 6-2 - and she also reached the final in the women’s singles competition but was defeated.
Dart is ranked 332nd in the world in doubles – close to her best ever ranking of 318, which she reached last September – while she is listed 494th in the women’s singles game.
It has been a less successful week for Camden’s James Ward, who was unable to progress beyond the opening round of the qualifiers at the French Open.
The British No5 was defeated 6-4, 6-3 by the 21-year-old Italian Matteo Donati, who is ranked 99 places below him in the world at 270.
