Amit Inbar won his first professional tournament, overcoming countryman Ishai Hadash 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the final of the Greek F1 Futures event in Kos on Sunday. Inbar, 21, earned 12 rankings points with the win, which should catapult him towards the 600 area - a career-high - from his current ranking of 728.
