However, Prado could not win the junior final at Roland Garros, after losing this Saturday against the Croatian Dino Prizmic, who won 6-1, 6-4.

In statements at the foot of the court after the trophies were handed out, the tennis player acknowledged that he had had "an incredible tournament" and thanked him for the support he has received from his country.

“I want to thank all the people who supported me: my work team, all the boys at the club, all the people from Bolivia who supported me all week; It was a very nice week for me, thanks for all the messages I had, to my family, my team; I hope it will be a motivation to continue as a professional tennis player”, said the man from Santa Cruz.

Prizmic also had words of praise for the Bolivian: "He's an incredible player, he had a great tournament, I want to congratulate him."

It is the second runner-up that he has won in a Junior Grand Slam. The first was last year with fellow Swiss Dylan Dietrich. They lost in the US Open Junior final to Americans Ozan Baris and Nishesh Basavareddy (a 6-1 double).

Prado, seeded eighth in the competition, came to this match after a great week due to the solid progress he made in each of the main draw brackets.
