WWW? JUNIOR Roland Garros Final: Tommy Paul [13][USA] vs Taylor Fritz [2][USA]

First all-USA Junior Boys Roland Garros final. Neither player has lost a set this tournament. They've played each other once before, at the Spain F13 Futures tournament during the semifinals there last month, which Tommy won in three sets, http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...yer2=100231275

Pro Profiles
Tommy http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...erid=100172005 (once Tommy's points from his Italy F11 Futures tournament title win are added onto his ranking, it will rise to about 450-460)
Taylor http://www.itftennis.com/procircuit/...erid=100231275

Junior Profiles
Tommy http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/pla...erid=100172005
Taylor http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/pla...erid=100231275

Most recent pic of them standing together that I can find But the photo is actually a bit prophetic, because of them standing next to each other and the whole USA thing (all-American RG final)

Very cool, nice to see maybe US has some hope ahead. Sock is showing some potential of breaking through to top level, but it is nice to see there are some others in the pipeline.

That looks like Sam Riffice kneeling in front of Paul and Fritz. He'll be a factor at the slams next year.

Anyway, I'll go with Fritz in three, but this is a tough one to call. Paul will make Fritz play well, but I think Fritz might have too much firepower, even on clay. I'm happy either way.

I'm not sure who's going to beat Fritz at Wimbledon. Duck Hee Lee and huge servers like Opelka and Tim van Rijthoven could be problematic.

Should be a good match. Going to go with Fritz in three. Is it too premature to be thinking about a Channel Slam already?

But what a great week for Tommy it has been!
