16 yr old Filip Krajinovic (q) beats Robert Kendrick in Knoxville 5-7 6-4 6-3

It's only a challenger but it's a great win over in form top 100 player, biggest in his career so far.Kendrick won two and played one challenger final recently.

Krajinovic his practicing at Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy and he recently said that he reminds him of young Agassi.
"One of the brighter prospects in Serbia's upcoming generation is another kid who left home to develop, again with us at the academy, and that's a 16-year-old boy called Filip Krajinovic, who I advise you to keep an eye on. He's going to be a hell of a player: impeccable groundstrokes, hits the ball hard and early, with little spin. He's got a two-handed backhand, moves well. He reminds me in a lot of ways of Andre Agassi, except Andre was not so comfortable at the net."

It's an end of the year and I hope MTF won't be too hard on me for pointing at one bright prospect .

I checked the ATP site and it says he played only a few futures and one challenger so far. Nice win so early in the career I hope they'll nourish that feel at the net at NBTA for a change

i agree... bolletieri academy methods work... but the results are not easy on the eye at all... grind a sure fire way to the top, without any real interest in nuturing the creativity needed to be truly great... though, coaching methods right the way round the world copied this style to a certain extent... one dimensional slugfest lovers only... and, look what it did to the wta... but who cares, cos it affected the men's game much less... i hear they have installed clay courts and revised the way they bring on players with respect to the game...

all that said, good win here by this kid... kendrick is a pretty sound gateway to the top 100 in all fairness...
