RG Boys' Final: Bjorn Fratangelo (USA) d. [14] Dominic Thiem (AUT) 3-6 6-3 8-6

A close one but what's more noteworthy is that an American won.

Bjorn Fratangelo


Born in U.S.A and turns 18 next month. Should move up to #2 in juniors with win, around 1400 in ATP rankings, career best senior result is QF at U.S.A futures a month ago.

Gotta love the name. Very American.

Lets hope he shows this fight in the challengers and then eventually ATP tournaments. Could well be a decent all-surface player.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
