I think this is his first final. Congrats and good luck against Sandgren.

He lost in the final, but still a good week. I guess we will probably know by the end of the summer what his decision will be, college or ATP. If he does well, he might go pro. If not, a year or two of college tennis is not a bad option.

Default Interview with Bjorn Fratangelo (USA ) May 20th

From Tennisfutures.net

Bjorn Fratangelo was a name most kept their eyes on. As the 18 year old beat 1st seed Gerald Melzer and lost in the final to 2nd seed Tennys Sandgren. Bjorn joined John McEnroe (’77) as the only American to have won a Roland Garros boys title in the Open era.

RP: You beat the first seed and tournament favorite Gerald Melzer (AUT) in the second round, how’d that feel?
BF: It felt pretty good. This is the 2nd time playing against him recently and the last time I was sick. So I don’t know if he took me lightly because of the last meeting but it was a competitive match. It was physical tennis.

RP: Your father named you after Bjorn Borg, how has been an influence for you?
BF: It’s great having him as a mentor. I also have Dustin Taylor who travels with me but they are both a good balance for me to have.

RP: List your strengths?
BF: My forehand is my best weapon; I like to be offensive when I play. I also consider myself a pretty good competitor.

RP: How will you improve your game to make the jump into the Challengers tours?
BF: I just need to keep getting better and I want to put on some muscle. I just need to stay focused and keep learning. I’m willing to put in the work.

RP: You’re a big Pittsburgh Steeler’s fan, who is your favorite player?
BF: Definitely Heinz Ward.3

He FINALLY made a decision. He chose to go pro.

Lost to Simmonds in the QF in Chico. 2 clay futures up next which should be good for him.

He should have gone to college to tweak his hardcourt game or maybe go to South America or Europe where there are plenty of clay futures to get his ranking going.
