Future Ute Johan Jonhagen, who signed an NLI with Utah in November 2013, has won the under 21 Swedish National Indoor Championships. In the finals Jonhagen beat No. 1 seeded Filip Karlsson (ATP ranked 1594) in a closely contested three hour battle; 7-6(6), 3-6, 6-3.

“I fought extremely hard, which was the key to the victory,” said Jonhagen. “I released my forehand the way I wanted to and was really solid with my serves, backhands and volleys.”

To reach the finals, he beat No. 2 seeded Jeppe Johansson Holm,6-4, 7-6(4), in the semifinals and Eric Ahren Moonga, 7-6(3), 7-6(2), in the quarterfinals.

In doubles play, Jonhagen, partnering Eric Ahren Moonga, beat the No. 1 seeded team in Sweden in the quarterfinals, but ended up falling in the semifinals.

Jonhagen is scheduled to join the Utes in August of 2014.

CONGRATS JOHAN!!
