Filip Peliwo etched his name in the tennis history books on Saturday following his 6-4, 6-0 victory over Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan at the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows, New York.
The win gave Peliwo a berth in his fourth junior Grand Slam boys' singles final of the season where he will play Liam Broady of Great Britain on Sunday.
The 18-year-old Canadian becomes the first player since Stefan Edberg in 1983 to reach all four junior Major singles finals in the same year at the Australian Open, Roland-Garros, Wimbledon, and now the U.S. Open. Peliwo won his first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in July, making Canadian tennis history along with Eugenie Bouchard (Westmount, QC) who swept the girls' singles and doubles titles at the All-England Club.
