DeVine has some game. He is better than his results suggest.

Devine over Kumar 60 60

Maybe they will switch to the other match now.

6-0, 6-0 over the #1 seed. Yeah, that works.

DeVine had the look of a legit pro prospect in this match, although Kumar's level of play was pretty low. DeVine's serve, in particular, was impressive.

Just looked at DeVine's results this week. He hasn't even been gone to a tiebreaker. He's had it on cruise control.

I'm ready for Championships Sunday starting with the 16s 3rd place match between Kumar and Tiafoe in less than 2 hours, followed by the 16s final. Of course I will be rooting for Tommy Showing support for a fellow North Carolinian. And oh, Kozlov won the backdraw b/c Corinteli gave a walkover Hoping to see a lot of good matches today.

BOYS 16s: The boys 16s final will feature two friends who are roommates during this tournament.

Jake DeVine, the fourth seed, will play No. 3, Tommy Paul, both from Boca Raton, Fla., for a wild card into the junior division of the U.S. Open.

DeVine upset top seed Sameer Kumar, of Carmel, Ind., 6-0, 6-0, in one semifinal and Paul defeated No. 2 Francis Tiafoe, of College Park, Md., 6-2, 6-4, in the other.

“Tommy’s an exceptional player,” DeVine said. “I’m excited. I know that we’re good enough friends that it’s not going to affect our relationship off the court. I know it will be a great match.”

Paul said there may be some joking about the match Saturday night, but by Sunday it will be all business.

“When we do talk about it (Saturday night), we’ll talk about it jokingly, like we’re gonna be like, ‘All right, so I’m coming out serving the first game and I’ll hold, then you hold,’” Paul said. “We’ll joke around like that. Then the morning before the match, we won’t talk about the match too much to each other.”

DeVine said a 6-0, 6-0 win against the top seed is something a player dreams about.

“A performance like that is something you dream of; the semifinals of Kalamazoo, one of biggest tournaments of the year, playing Sameer, who’s probably one of the most respected players in the country right now in this age group. He’s number one by, like, a mile.

“I lost to him this year in a heartbreaker in the Easter Bowl. He ended a streak I had going in the quarterfinals of the tournament of about this caliber. It was tough, and so I was really nervous (Saturday). I believed I could win; I wasn’t sure if I would win. My coaches prepared me exceptionally well. I had a really good start, which is key for me.”

Paul came into the tournament on a roll. He won the Clay Court singles and doubles two weeks ago and made it to Saturday’s doubles final with Alex Rybakov, of Coral Springs, Fla., as top seeds.

They lost in Saturday’s final to Taylor Fritz, of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., and Anudeep Kodali, of Durham , N.C., 6-4, 6-4.

I'm disappointed that they are not showing the Kumar-Tiafoe match.

And now we know why his results are inconsistent. He had a hard stringing two points together. Yes, he has a big serve and forehand but like a lot of the big guys, poor footwork and ground game.

Happy for Tommy though. Didn't really have to do much, just hit to the DeVine's backhand.

Still, there are tools to work with. He has a chance.

I wonder about Paul. He seems like the anti-DeVine. Very steady, but does he have the tools to compete at higher levels?
