Krueger takes first Challenger title

Dallas native Mitchell Krueger lost to the eventual champion in the junior French Open and Wimbledon semis in 2012, and cleaned up at the national level.

But since the former No. 5 junior passed on college tennis to turn pro, he’s been grinding it out for seven years.


Finally, a breakthrough – at his home club, with a big cheering section behind him.

Krueger won the Dallas Challenger, his first title at that level after three in the Futures.

He’d bounced around between No. 180 and No. 300 in the rankings for four years. Monday, he reached a career best No. 160.
