I did a brief review/follow up of the post I did last year. How the teens did in 2015 Just Drop The Ball (Tennis Blog): 2015 Review: American Teenagers (ATP)

The draw for the Orange Bowl is out. Rybakov's draw is pretty good. FAA, Tsitsipas, Valkusz, Shapovalov, and Olivieri are all in the opposite half. He could face Hossam (runner-up at the GA in Mexico two weeks ago) in the third round, Sigouin or Chung in the QF, and De Minaur, Ruud, or Kecmanovic in the SF. If he plays up to his ability, he's probably the favorite to get out of his quarter.

Ponwith has an extremely favorable draw for two rounds, but then would likely meet Valkusz in the third round and, should he get past him, FAA in the QF. Riffice, incidentally, could play FAA in the third round.

Blanch has a decent draw. I can see him getting past Ruud to reach another QF.

I'm not seeing much in the way of weapons, but his recent results are encouraging. It's too bad he had to retire against Nava in the round of 16 at Kalamazoo, as he had just beaten Henrik Wiersholm convincingly.

I look forward to him facing better competition. Hopefully he'll play the Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl.

Between Blumberg, Ponwith, Blanch, Holt, Wolf, McNally, and Van Emburgh, I figure at least one of the 1998 kids outside of the Big Three will emerge as a good pro.

Opelka lost to Y. Chung and Blumberg lost to De Minaur. Guaranteed SFist in the top half with Fritz taking on Rybakov.

Quarterfinals

Fritz(1) v Rybakov
Ymer(3)[SWE] v Chung(11)[KOR]
Paul(5) v Hong(4)[KOR]
De Minaur[AUS] v Mmoh(2)

Make that 8 for 8: Fritz, Paul, Opelka, Reinberg, Mmoh, Blumberg, Ponwith, and Blanch.

Look at these winner and UE stats from the Opelka-De Minaur match:

Winners
Opelka: 48
De Minaur: 21

Unforced Errors
Opelka: 72
De Minaur: 18

That is a boatload of errors for Opelka.
