Wroclaw, Poland, 19 August 2013 | Tennis Australia

Australian wheelchair tennis player Adam Kellerman has captured the first title of his career with victory at the ITF 2 event in Wroclaw, Poland.

Kellerman, ranked 20th in the world, claimed the Wroclaw Cup with a straight-set victory in the final over doubles partner David Phillipson.

He progressed to the final after beating world No.10 Fred Cattaneo in straight sets, his third consecutive victory over the Frenchman in the past month.

“I won the tournament! My first ITF2 win, the score was 6-1 7-5 and I played great,” Kellerman recounted via Facebook.

“Couldn’t be happier and my ranking will jump up again.”

Kellerman recently cracked the ITF Wheelchair top 20, peaking at No.18 in early August. He next heads to Turin, Italy for his final event of the season.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a stellar season in 2013, compiling a 25-12 win-loss record and winning two gold medals at the prestigious Maccabiah Games, the world’s biggest sporting event for Jewish athletes and held in Jerusalem in July.
