American Teen Evan Zhu Upsets No. 2 Seed at USTA Claremont Club Pro Classic Pro Circuit Futures

CLAREMONT, Calif., (Sept. 15, 2016) – Qualifier and American teenager Evan Zhu upset the tournament’s No. 2 seed and former No. 1 college player Clay Thompson on Thursday during second-round singles action at the USTA Claremont Club Pro Classic Pro Circuit Futures tournament.

 

A promising 18-year-old UCLA freshman from Irvine, Zhu eliminated the former UCLA Bruin Thompson, 6-4, 6-4, and will next move into the quarterfinals where he will face the other qualifying winner on the day, Alexei Popyrin of Australia. Popyrin is actually younger than Zhu at just 17 years of age and is currently ranked No. 23 in the ITF world junior rankings.

 

Besides Zhu, there were two other Americans who advanced into the final eight as No. 5-seeded Alexios Halebian and UCLA junior wild card Martin Redlicki each posted victories.

 

Halebian, who also advanced to the final in doubles and is part of the No. 1-seeded team with Mexico’s Luis Patino, will take on former Pepperdine All-American Sebastian Fanselow, the No. 4-seed from Germany as Fanselow beat current UCLA player and wild card Gage Brymer, 6-3, 6-4.

 

Brymer and Redlicki will battle for the Bruins’ No. 1 spot this year, once again making UCLA a heavy favorite to contend for a national championship.

 

Redlicki had a tough time with Ty Trombetta, before prevailing, 6-3, 1-6, 6-3.

 

Trombetta, who used a protected ranking to get into the main draw, is a former top junior from South Florida who is 26 years old and recovering from right shoulder surgery a year ago May. “It’s something I’ve been plagued with my entire career,” Trombetta said. “The first tournament I played this year was the Vero Beach (Fla.) Futures because it was near my home in Aventura.”

 

Trombetta is being coached this week by former world No. 22 player Ronald Agenor, who lives in Southern California but also splits his time in Florida. “I’ve known Ronald’s brother since I was 8 years old growing up in Florida,” said Trombetta, who taught tennis while recovering from surgery. “I’m back to 100 percent now and I’m feeling good. I’ve played these Southern California Futures tournaments before and really like it out here. So I decided to get back out here and give it a try.”

 

Halebian and Patino will contest the doubles final against the Sebastians, Fanselow and Sebastian Bader from Austria, not before 2 p.m.

Red Rock Pro Open To Feature Rising Stars Of Women’s Tennis With Annual Pro Event

 Michaella Krajicek and Mike Copenhave


Michaella Krajicek and Mike Copenhave

 

(Sept. 15, 2016) SUMMERLIN – Several top American women’s tennis players and the defending champion lead a talented group of players entered in this year’s eighth annual Red Rock Pro Open, taking place at the Red Rock Country Club in Summerlin.

 

This year’s Red Rock Pro Open, a USTA Women’s $50,000 Pro Circuit tournament with WTA players ranging in the world rankings from No. 110 to No. 275, will include 64 singles players (32 qualifying and 32 main draw), and a 16-team doubles draw, according to tournament director Mike Copenhaver.

 

“Once again this year we will see the best and brightest of the USTA Pro Circuit, including some of the rising stars in women’s tennis,” said Copenhaver, who is the director of tennis at Red Rock Country Club. “The players love coming to Las Vegas, and our fans in this community can’t wait to welcome them and see some high-level professional women’s tennis.”

 

Mandy Minella from Luxembourg will be top-seeded and is ranked 110 in the WTA world rankings. She will be followed by No. 2 Alison Van Uytvanck of Belgium (No. 112), No. 3 Veronica Cepede Royg of Paraguay (No. 123), No. 4 American Jennifer Brady (No. 124), No. 5 American Julia Boserup (No. 127), and No. 6 Amra Sadikovic of Switzerland (No. 131).

 

Minella has won two doubles titles on the WTA Tour, as well as nine singles and five doubles titles on the ITF tour in her career. Her career high in singles is No. 66. She has played in the main draw of each of the Grand Slams, and she reached the third round of the US Open in 2010 and 2012.

 

Van Uytvanck is 22 years old and achieved a career-high ranking of No. 41 last year. She has won one WTA singles 125,000 title on the WTA tour, as well as nine singles titles and one doubles title on the ITF tour in her career.

 

Brady is a former NCAA singles champion from UCLA, and Boserup turned heads this summer when she advanced to the third round at Wimbledon. She recently competed in US Open qualifying.

 

American’s Jessica Pegula (No. 138 in the world), Taylor Townsend (No. 146) are also expected to play in Las Vegas once again.

 

Last year’s Red Rock Pro Open singles champion Michaella Krajicek of the Netherlands is in the main draw, and is currently ranked No. 156 in the world.

 

American teenager C.C. Bellis is now a freshman at Stanford, but is scheduled to make a Las Vegas appearance. She qualified for the US Open last month, before falling in the third round. At the age of 15 two years ago, Bellis won the USTA Girls 18s national championship and became the youngest American to win a match at the US Open in nearly 30 years.

 

American Sachia Vickery returns to the main draw, as does Las Vegas resident Jovana Jaksic, who represents Serbia.

 

Notables in qualifying include American Maria Sanchez, 2013 Las Vegas winner Melanie Oudin, top American junior Raveena Kingsley and Japan’s Ayaka Okuno, who is coached by musical icon Redfoo.

 

Formerly the Party Rock Open in conjunction with Redfoo, the tournament returned in 2014 to the intimate setting at Red Rock Country Club.

 

Premier Sponsors include: Gaudin Porsche of Las Vegas, Storage One, Sunrise Hospital, Lotus Broadcasting, Cox Communications, WG Communications, Char Luxury Realty, USTA Nevada, SNH Inc., Rachel’s Kitchen, Marquis Aurbach Coffing, FedEx, and Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers.
