29-Jul-2016 Li Captures Girls 18s Clay Title in Steamy Memphis
Memphis in July is no place for the faint of heart. Temperatures in
the high 90s and a heat index often in the 110s, compounded by five
rain or lightning delays, presented one physical and mental challenge
after another as the USTA Girls 18s Clay Court Championships wore on.
For Ann Li, no obstacle proved insurmountable, as she earned her first
singles gold ball with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 victory over Amanda Meyer.
29-Jul-2016 Sebastian Korda Wins Boys 18s Clay Courts
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.
28-Jul-2016 Noel Wins Second Straight Clay Court Title
Overcoming a significant deficit when the heat index is in triple
digits is never part of the game plan. But scrappy, feisty
13-year-old Alexa Noel did so anyway to capture the singles title at
the USTA Girls 16 National Clay Court Championships. In a clash of
two players who now call New Jersey home, Noel outlasted Amber O'Dell
in 2 hours and 20 minutes by a score of 1-6, 6-4, 6-3.
