2021 Texas Slam Champions

June 26, 2021

Dallas' Landon Ardila won the Boys 18s singles and doubles championships while Houston's Sofia Mazzucato won the Girls 18s title at The Texas Slam held in Georgetown from June 19-26.


"Honestly, when I saw the players in the draw, I was a little scared," said Ardila. "I knew we could take doubles because we were the 1 seed, but singles I knew it would be more of a challenge. I did not think I would take both of them. It feels great."


After winning the doubles final on Wednesday with his partner Grant Lothringer of The Woodlands, the duo had to face off against one another in the singles finals.


"It's crazy that we both went undefeated and one of us had to lose," Ardila said. "It was a nice experience to play doubles with him then and play him in the finals."

For Mazzucato, it was a rode that took some three-set thrillers and tiebreaks early on, but finished with a 6-3, 6-0 victory over Reya Coe of Plano. After coming up short in the final of the last Texas Slam in Girls 14s, Mazzucato was finally able to lift The Texas Slam trophy.


"This was my first time playing Girls 18s," Mazzucato said. "Two years ago, I got to the final [of Girls 14s] and lost, so I wanted to win this year really badly. I was really motivated to win this match quickly in the fewest amount of games."


Ardila, Elliott Awomoyi (Cypress) and Laila Nguyen (Houston) were the only players to win in both singles and doubles.
