Americans Poised to Shine

While the US men and women haven't had a Grand Slam finalist in 2014, the country's younger players have had more success in the top level of international competition, with Noah Rubin winning the Wimbledon boys title and Stefan Kozlov reaching the final there and at the Australian Open. With both the top seed and the 2013 finalist in the girls draw and six of the 16 seeds in the boys draw, the US juniors are poised for another outstanding showing at the US Open. Story
