Liu, Davidovich Win at Wimbledon

Claire Liu and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina's titles at last week's Wimbledon Junior Championships ended long droughts for their countries. When Liu, a 17-year-old from Thousand Oaks California, defeated surprise finalist Ann Li 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 she became the first American since Chanda Rubin in 1992 to capture the girls championship at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. Davidovich's 7-6(2), 6-3 win over Argentina's Axel Geller ended 50 years of futility for Spain, whose only other Wimbledon boys champion was Manuel Orantes in 1967. Story
