2021 Clay Court Nationals
Blanch Takes Boys 14s Singles Title in Miami

Darwin Blanch is now the proud owner of a hand-blown flamingo trophy.

The ninth-seeded Blanch was presented the unique trophy after winning the singles title at the USTA Boys 14 National Clay Court Championships at Flamingo Park Tennis Center in Miami Beach, Florida.

The Deerfield Beach, Florida native emerged as the champion after beating top-seeded Braeden Gelletich (Goshen, New York) 6-3, 6-3 in the finals.

“I didn’t do anything different against the No. 1 seed,” said Blanch, who played in only his third USTA tournament. “There are many dangerous players in all rounds, so it doesn’t matter their seed or ranking. You always need to play well every match, or you will lose.

“I stayed focused all the time. I played well the entire match from the first to the last ball. This is most important to me.”
