19-Aug-2016 Mmoh Masters Kalamazoo 18s
With his professional experience and an ATP ranking inside the Top
400, Michael Mmoh was a heavy favorite this year at Kalamazoo's USTA
Boys 18 National Championships. Despite the considerable pressure
that comes with a No. 1 seeding, Mmoh delivered, winning the title
and a US Open main draw wild card with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-3 victory over
No. 7 seed Vasil Kirkov.
19-Aug-2016 Kayla Day Wins Girls 18s, Wild Card in San Diego
Kayla Day veered from her normal routine. The Santa Barbara native
usually just trains the week before a major event, but this year she
played a warm-up tournament before the USTA Girls' 18s Nationals. The
new formula worked to perfection, as the top-seeded Day capped a strong
run through the singles draw by beating seventh-seeded Nicole Frenkel
of Winchester, Mass., 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 in the final at the Barnes Tennis
Center in San Diego.
18-Aug-2016 Greif Gains Gold Again
The summer of 2016 will be remembered as a golden one for US Olympians
like Michael Phelps and Simone Biles. Although Kalamazoo is not Rio,
Lukas Greif will share in their fond memories of the past few weeks,
after defeating Jenson Brooksby 6-0, 6-3 to win the USTA Boys 16s
National Championships, adding a second gold ball after claiming the
16s Clay Courts title three weeks earlier.
