What started off as a vacation to Indonesia for Ole Miss graduate Arianne Hartono ended in her clenching another tennis title. Hartono played in the ITF Futures event in Jakarta at the Sultan Hotel Tennis Courts over the weekend and came away with both doubles and singles titles.

On Saturday, Hartono teamed up with her cousin and former Kentucky tennis player, Aldila Sutjiadi, to capture the doubles title. The pair received a wildcard into the main draw and did not drop a set on their way to the final. Once there, they took out the top seeds 6-1, 6-2. It marked Hartono’s third career ITF doubles title.  
Hartono had to enter the qualifying tournament in singles and not only qualified for the main draw, but powered her way to Saturday’s title match, knocking out the Nos. 1, 3 and 7 seeds. In the final, Hartono beat the No. 8 seed, Mahak Jain (India) 6-4, 6-1, to win her first career professional singles title.
Despite trailing at the start of the opening set against the 17-year-old from India, Hartono was able to take it 6-4. Broken twice and down 2-3, Hartono won four of the next five games. From 1-1 in the second set, it was all Hartono as she cruised for 6-1.
“I had trouble at the beginning of the first set because she played good defense and was returning everything,” Hartono said. “I knew I had to be patient and once I figured out her game, I was able to change my game. It became the key to winning faster in the second set.”
In May, Hartono finished her collegiate career by winning the NCAA singles championship – the first in program history. She was also SEC Player of the Year and earned the 2018 Honda Award for Tennis.
