Ricardas Berankis

I decided to create a thread for the new US Open junior champion
I noticed him a few months ago when Nishikori defeated him in the luxilon cup.

Lets hope Ricardas can have a good transition to the senior tour now

I am looking forward to seeing pictures of him hoisting the US Open trophy

Re: Ricardas Berankis

Federer warmed up with him before the final today.

I've been posting about Berankis in the Nole forum and Gulbis' thread. Looks like the Baltic nations are a budding tennis powerhouse.

Unlike with everyone posting about Gulbis in Nole's forum, that's not why I'm here. Lately I've been trying to find some juniors to follow and I figure the USO champion is someone worth following.

Thanks for the pics
I hope it was ok to make this thread. I like Gulbis and Nole too, so you have good taste coming here.

Re: Ricardas Berankis

I managed to see Ricardas play in the junior final. He has a great game, hopefully he can find success in seniors.

17.

I just watched his finals match. He was adorable in his post-match interview.
