TIBURON/STARNBERG, October 8, 2023

Alexis Galarneau of Canada and Zachary Svajda from the United States took each other on in an exciting match at the $80,000 Tiburon Challenger presented by Raymond James Financial with crowd-pleasing saves and strategic moves that was a repeat of last year’s singles semi-final. The outcome was the same for a second year in a row, with Svajda defeating Galarneau to move onto the final and a chance to defend his title.

Adam Walton overcame fellow Aussie Tristan Schoolkate to face Svajda in Sunday’s final.

Luke Johnson from Great Britain and Skander Mansouri of Tunisia defeated top-seeded US-American William Blumberg and Luis David Martinez of Venezuela to capture the doubles championship.
