USTA Winter Nationals Update

The USTA Winter Nationals will play the round of 16 in all four age divisions on Wednesday, so I thought it might be a good time to catch up on what has happened the past three days in Arizona.  Below you can find the status of the Top 8 seeds and the names of the unseeded players who have reached the round of 16. The Girls 16s still have all Top 8 seeds in the fourth round and even one of the unseeded players in the last 16, Junior Orange Bowl finalist Naomi Cheong, is hardly a surprise. In contrast, six of the 16 players left in the Boys 16s are unseeded.

The biggest upset in the first three rounds was No. 2 seed Rebecca Weissmann's loss to unseeded Marybeth Hurley today.  The TennisLink site for the 16s and 18s draws is here. The TennisLink site for the 12s and 14s draws is here.
