The 14s champions did not face the same challenges in terms of scheduling, having completed their semifinals on Friday, but the wind was also a problem for their morning matches.

William Blumberg, the No. 14 seed, didn't let it bother him, however, as he rolled to a 6-2, 6-1 win over No. 2 seed Kyle Seelig.

"I tried to not really worry about the conditions," said Blumberg, who lives in Greenwich, Conn. and trains at the USTA's National Center in Flushing Meadows. "The wind started to come up during my match, and instead of fighting it, I just used it by hitting kick serves wide with the wind and pulling him off the court. I thought I used the wind pretty well."

Blumberg won eight games in a row, taking a 4-0 lead in the second set before Seelig held. If there was any chance for Seelig to reverse the momentum it was in the sixth game, but Blumberg saved three break points to quash Seelig's hopes for a comeback.

"He sliced his backhand a lot, kept it low to my backhand and I was just missing a lot," said Pennsylvanian Seeling, who had not lost a set in the tournament until today. "The wind bothered me a little bit, but he just didn't miss."

Blumberg's plan was similar to the one he used to oust top seed Anudeep Kodali in Friday's semifinals.

"My strategy was to kind of get him off his game with high deep loopy balls," said Blumberg, 14. "He likes pace and I didn't give him much of any pace, so that kind of threw him off a little bit I think."

Although Blumberg was excited about his first Easter Bowl title and second gold ball, he ranks his win over Michael Mmoh in the semifinals of January's Les Petits As as his biggest victory in his young career. Blumberg, Mmoh and Frances Tiafoe will be traveling together again in a few days, representing the US in the ITF World Junior Team competition qualifying in Mexico.-zootennis
Great to see them team up again .

I'm surprised that Wiersholm didn't make the team; wonder if his ankle injury is still bothering him. Also notice that he pulled out of the Daytona ITF . Hope he is okay .

"There's news in who is not named too, of course. Henrik Weirsholm and Noah Rubin would certainly have been considered for the Junior Davis Cup team, but both suffered injuries at the Easter Bowl."
So you're right, yeah. Too bad because that would be an absurdly good team for this, especially with Noah and also considering it's an U16 competition.

No, not Noah too . Hope it's not serious b/c he is scheduled to compete in Europe next month.

On the other hand, I'm curious on how Escobedo will do.

^ Thanks for sharing the video.

Results from the Junior Davis Cup vs Mexico
Stefan KOZLOV [USA] def. Kevin Jack CARPENTER [MEX] 7-5 4-6 6-1

Link to thread in Junior Subforum here.

Results from the World Junior Tennis vs Canada
Frances TIAFOE def. Benjamin SIGOUIN [CAN] 6-3 6-1
Michael MMOH def. Dylan BEDNARCZYK [CAN] 6-0 6-1
Michael MMOH/William BLUMBERG def. Dylan BEDNARCZYK/Benjamin SIGOUIN [CAN] 6-3 6-3

Tough opening match for Stefan there. By the way, how you spell Tiafoe's first name? Some sites go by Francis and others go by Frances .

Mmoh is in the USA F13 Q. Will play Elliot Carnello in the 1st round. I don't think you are ready for this level yet Michael, but good luck and try your best .
