Israel Tennis Association Facebook
Israeli tennis player Yshai Oliel won his first ever Grand Slam Sunday when he took home the 2016 French Open boys' doubles title.
Sixteen-year-old Oliel played in the final with his Czech partner Patrik Rikl against South Korean Chung Yun-seong and Brazilian Orlando Luz.
Oliel and Rikl won in two straight sets 6–3, 6–4.
This is the second time in the past few years that an Israeli has won the same title at Roland Garros, with the last person to do it Dudi Sela in 2003.
In 2014 Oliel won the prestigious Junior Orange Bowl tournament for the second time after first winning it in 2012 at the age of 12.
