Really? Why not? Novikov was my pre-tournament pick to win, actually.

At least guys like Jack Sock and Mitchell Frank, Alex Domijan Chase Buchanan and Rhyne Williams, or even Ryan Harrison were winning futures events around the time they played KZOO.

I'm not saying this years group won't improve to be good though.
Yeah, I think all the quarterfinalists here would have a hard time getting a win at the challenger level. Oh well, I wish the winner (and finalist) the best at the Open (USO Q). The wildcard recipient will likely draw a top 10 seed anyway, soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the moment. I have no preference in the winner, but since Halebian already turned pro he could use the money.

Btw, do the winners of the 16s get wildcard into the Jr. US Open?

Re: 2010 USTA Boy's National Tennis Championships

Since the 18s winner will not be eligible for the Jr. USO (ITF tournament/rule), will the runner-up in the 16s get the wildcard instead?

I forgot that Halebian is still eligible, but not Novikov.

Henrik Wiersholm sweeps 16s titles in his 1st visit to Kalamazoo. He wins singles championship over Sasha Gozun 64, 61 #natszoo
Btw, Gozun is one big 16 y.o.

Congrats to Dennis on the title and the wildcard.

Dennis Novikov doesn't do drama; he holds at love for a 76(3), 26, 63, 64 win over Alexios Halebian. He is USTA 18s Nat'l Champion #natszoo

Re: 2010 USTA Boy's National Tennis Championships

Novikov will get rocked by someone in the US Open. Every player is begging for that draw. I'm not very impressed by Novikov.

It will probably be like Krajicek in 08.

Um, just looked at the Novikov stats. He had 25 aces. #usopen #maybekalamazooradargunwasaccurate
Maybe Hiltzik did set the world record

Jared Hiltzik just set a world record on a serve. According to radar gun it was 166 mph. #probablyamalfunctionif gun#natszoo
