Bricker Speaks with Weinhold; McVeigh's Qualifying at Pilot Pen

Charlie Bricker of the Sun-Sentinel hasn't been writing much about tennis lately, but he's shown a keen interest in the USTA's new training center at Boca Raton. With Ashley Weinhold and Madison Brengle in residence there, he's zeroed in on their progress, and this story weighs Weinhold's pro prospects following her win at the Nationals last week.

The Harford Courant talked with local junior Carolyn McVeigh about her association with the event near her home, The Pilot Pen, which is a joint ATP/WTA event, the last one before the U.S. Open.

McVeigh received a qualifying wildcard and lost to top seed Agnes Szavay of Hungary. The final round of qualifying is Sunday, and three 18-year-olds are still fighting for a main draw spot: Naomi Cavaday, Dominika Cibulkova and Raluca Olaru. Christina McHale, the 15-year-old from New Jersey, won a qualifying wildcard tournament last month, but was unable to play due to a sprained ankle, according to the draw notes.

Congrats to Donald Young on his win over Delic (3 sets) in the Pilot Penn Tournament.

I am suprised, even though
Delic has not been past the 2nd round in 17 of his 19 tournaments this year;and has lost in the 1st round in his last 3 tournaments. Delic's last big tournament was in March- ATP Miami.

It is still a W for Young.

It is still a big win for Young.
