Roman Valent of Switzerland, the 10th seed, won the boy's singles title at Wimbledon on Sunday defeating second seed Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 3-6 7-5 6-3 in the final.

Valent, on his 18th birthday, was a set and a break down, but turned the match around with two breaks late in the second set.

After a break for rain, he went on to clinch the title.

The girl's singles final went to Angelique Widjaja of Indonesia, who beat Marat Safin's sister Dinara Safina 6-4 0-6 7-5.

The match had begun on Saturday, but rain intervened with Widjaja, the number eight seed, 3-2 behind.

Widaja made the breakthrough when the 15-year-old Safina served two double faults to lose her serve.

The second set was all Safina and she won it without losing a game to set up the finale.

Widjaja broke first, and served for the match at 5-4 only to lose her own serve.

But the 16-year-old Indonesian immediately broke again and this time served out.
