Adelaide SA, Australia, 2 March 2015 | David Packman

Rising Aussie teen Omar Jasika pushed top seed Brydan Klein to the brink before falling 6-4 6-7(3) 6-2 in the final of the 2015 Coopers Adelaide International on Sunday.

Klein began confidently, breaking the sixth seed early and keeping him off balance with some aggressive play.

However, the 17-year-old – looking to win his first Futures title – wouldn’t go away and mixed things up in the second set, enough to disrupt Klein’s power game and level the match.

Yet the decider belonged to the top seed, as he got back on the front foot, using his serve – he remained unbroken for the match – to keep Jasika guessing.

“(Jasika) makes a lot of balls, constructs the points well and makes you really work for every point,” Klein said of the young Aussie, a US Open junior champion last year.

“I knew I didn’t want to get into long grinding rallies with him, and I managed to do that.

“I was trying to step up and hit him off the court from the start. He broke my rhythm a little bit in the second, but in the third I got an early break and really ran away with it.”

Klein’s win will place him just outside the top 200 in the world.

The doubles title was won by Aussie second seeds Matt Reid and Carsten Ball who defeated their fellow countrymen, the unseeded pairing of Steven De Waard and Chris O’Connell, 6-4 6-3.

Jang victorious in Clare Valley

Meanwhile, 19-year-old Korean Su Jeong Jang has swept to the 2015 Clare Valley Tennis International title with a straight sets win over Austrian seventh seed Pia Konig.

The top seed showed too much consistency and class for her 21-year-old opponent, and was barely troubled in the 6-3 6-3 victory. Jang was exceptionally solid throughout the week, with Australian Jessica Moore the only opponent to take a set from her in their quarterfinal affair.

Moore was also successful in doubles this week, pairing up with American Jennifer Elie to take the title after overcoming the second seeded Japanese duo of Mana Ayukawa and Kotomi Takahata 6-3 7-5 in the final.
