French First: All-American Boys Final
Eighteen-year old Tommy Paul of Lumberton, N.J., won the French Open boys’ singles title in Paris, capping a successful week for American juniors at Roland Garros. Paul, coached by USTA National Coach Diego Moyano, defeated 17-year old Taylor Fritz, of Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., 7-6(4), 2-6, 6-2, in the first-ever all-American boys’ singles final at the French Open, dating back to 1947. Paul becomes the sixth American to win the French Open boys’ championship, joining Bjorn Fratangelo (2011), John McEnroe (1977), Cliff Richey (1964), Butch Buchholz (1958) and Ham Richardson (1951). Congrats Tommy and Taylor - Well done!
