BOLTON Arena tennis starlet Ashley Hewitt is celebrating after winning the USTA Pro Circuit Futures tourney event in Williamsville, New York.

He defeated C Henrique, who is ranked 398 in the world, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to bring home his second Futures tour title.

Speaking about the win, the 22-year-old said: “It was an amazing week for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

“If I did not know it already I learnt how to play tennis under pressure.”

It comes just weeks after Your Sport reported that Hewitt picked up a major scalp in reaching the final of the Portugal £10k competition.

He defeated Portugese Davis Cup player Federico Gil en-route to the semi-finals.
