Have you heard of this 15-year old already? From Claire. Thanks.

Have any of you heard of a 15 year old American player named Ryan Harrison?? Well, he will play the winner of the Blake/Nishikori match!!! Imagine Blake playing a 15 year old in a tournament!
Per the Houston Chronicle “…it appears he would become the only the 10th player of the Open Era to win an ATP tour match before his 16th birthday. The last one? Rafael Nadal in 2002.”

My husband and children saw Harrison play on a side court Sunday. They said he is awesome!

Today, Harrison beat Cuevas. The Chronicle said of Cuevas, “the 22 year old from Uruguay is a clay-court specialist who, earlier this season, reached the semifinals of the ATP tournament in Vina de Mar, Chile.”

“Harrison is from Shreveport, Louisiana, and trains at Newcomb’s tennis ranch in New Braunfels, Texas. Harrison is the 7th ranked junior in the world, but he has already turned professional”
My sons went to Newcomb’s camp last summer, awesome place!
Tomorrow we see Haas, then Blake playing doubles! )
