Korda Takes 18s Clays Title

Unseeded and undaunted, Sebastian Korda picked up the first gold ball of his singles career as he downed Alexandre Rotsaert in the finals of the Metropolia USTA Clay Court Boys 18s National Championships at the Delray Beach Tennis Center. Korda, 16, needed a little over two hours as he defeated the hometown favorite 6-4, 6-1 to win the singles title in an all-Florida match-up. Story
