Kalamazoo 18s Recap, Slideshow, Videos; Rubin Awarded ATP Winston-Salem Open Wild Card; Take USTA Junior Survey

My recap of Noah Rubin's sweep of the titles at last week's USTA Boys 18s National Championships is available now at the Tennis Recruiting Network.  Earlier today, Rhiannon Potkey provided a look back at CiCi Bellis' championship run at the Girls 18s in San Diego.

In addition to the two main draw US Open wild cards he received for winning the singles and doubles in Kalamazoo, rising Wake Forest freshman Rubin has now received a main draw wild card to the ATP's Winston-Salem Open next week.  Kevin Anderson and Ryan Harrison have also received wild cards, with one main draw wild card still to be named.

Also, Lisa Stone at Parenting Aces has provided a link to the USTA survey for players, parents and coaches regarding their experience with USTA tournaments, the competitive structure and changes they'd like to see.  The deadline for responses to this survey is Monday, August 18th, so please go to Lisa's site for the link and take the time to provide your input.
