Tournament Feature
Clayton Upsets Embree to Take 18s Clay Title

Memphis, Tennessee - and the Racquet Club of Memphis - have long been home to the USTA Girls' 18 National Clay Courts championships. Last week's tournament was another success. Chair umpires - and ballkids on the featured courts - made for a great environment. And there were some great upsets as well.
