At just 15-years-old, Stefan Kozlov is no stranger to doing inzterviews. He’s been talked about as a future prospect for the USA since his age could be written in single digits.
This is Kozlov’s second consecutive year participating in the Junior Davis Cup for the USA. This time around he’s the No. 1 boy on the fourth-seeded USA squad.
Kozlov’s current combined ranking is No. 14 and with his 76(0) 64 win over Dutchman Tim van Rijthoven on Tuesday, he has a 27-10 win-loss record for the season. Kozlov’s best result at the junior Grand Slams this year was reaching the Wimbledon quarterfinals.
In the USA’s opening match, Henrik Wiersholm shutout Casper Bonapart 60 60. And in the doubles, Wiersholm and Tommy Paul defeated Joris Bodin and van Rijthoven 62 63 for the USA to take a perfect 3-0 win over the Netherlands.
Also a short interview.
Didn't realize San Luis Potosi had such a high altitude.
Can't imagine how much faster this is than Barcelona red clay.
That's great for US! I imagine many/most other teams would prefer the red clay, especially most south american and european teams. I think Korea's advantage would have been much bigger on clay too. But I doubt this effects the Russians much. I imagine Safiullin and Rublev are just as strong on any surface.
