The champion admits he was ‘a bit scared’ to face Crawford who was the highest ranked in the tournament (295th on ITF world ranking) but he was motivated by the fact that he wanted to avenge against the American after he beat him previously at his home country. “I’m happy for the victory with a lot of emotions. I knew I was not favorite to win this match because he (Crawford) is ranked higher than me but I started well and stayed focused from the very beginning. So that’s what helped me today,” Wenger said after winning Sunday’s final. “Last time you destroyed me, today I took a revenge,” he joked. The Swiss, who is ranked 408 on the ITF world ranking, also won the men’s doubles after he and Corentin Denolly beat Guy Orly Iradukunda (Burundi) and Abraham Asaba (Ghanaian) 4-6 7-6⁵ 10-5 in the final on Saturday.
