Great win for Mergea, who possesses powerful groundstrokes including a beautiful one-hand backhand... Here is an article from the Independent:

Double success for Romania's Mergea
By Nick Harris
07 July 2003


Florin Mergea of Romania followed in Roger Federer's junior Grand Slam footsteps here yesterday by winning the boys' singles title. On a day of double success for Mergea, the 18-year-old No 8 seed claimed the trophy won by Federer in 1998 by beating Chris Guccione of Australia, seeded No 6, in straight sets, 6-2, 7-6.

That victory was concluded at 2.23pm. By 6.03pm, Mergea was a double winner and Guccione was a double nearly-man after Mergea and his compatriot Horia Tecau, the seed No1, had seen off Guccione and compatriot Adam Feeney in the final of the boys' doubles, 7-6, 7-5.
