Liu, Kecmanovic Win Titles

The ITF Grade 1 International Hard Court Tournament last week at the Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, Maryland was left without a boys final when Oliver Crawford, who injured his ankle in the doubles semifinals the day before, was unable to take the court against Serbia's Miomir Kecmanovic. But the girls final nearly filled the void, with Claire Liu defeating Xiyu Wang of China 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in a match that took just under three hours to complete. Story
