Every week, American players from the ATP and WTA tours step up to the plate around the world. Here are the top American movers and shakers that shined brightest this week:
1. Robin Montgomery
Girls Singles and Doubles Champion, US Open (New York, NY)
On Saturday, Montgomery became the first American since 2017 to win the US Open girls singles title. At 17-years-old, she took down Kristina Dmitruk from Belarus 6-2, 6-4. However, the American wasn’t content winning just one title. Later that day, she partnered with Ashlyn Krueger to take home the girls doubles title. Montgomery, a USTA Foundation Excellence Program standout, is now the first American since Lindsay Davenport in 1992 to sweep the girls singles and doubles titles at the major event.
