Good to see the top U.S. juniors playing here. It seems some of the best have skipped this tournament in recent years. This tournament is a great proving ground, and the U.S. Open wildcard will be well deserved.

Here's an article from ustagirls.org

Girls U-18 Nationals: Tidal Wave of Talent headed for San Jose

Tennis enthusiasts and newcomers alike will delight at the USTA Girls' 18s National Championships. Over 200 of the top junior players from around the nation are on their way to Almaden Valley Athletic Club (AVAC) where play begins Sunday, August 8th. The club, located at 5400 Camden Avenue, has been hosting the Nationals for 20 years and the event has always been exceptional. This year promises to be even better, with the strongest draw ever, new and returning local sponsors, and an enthusiastic cast of over 150 amazing volunteers.

Recent USTA (United States Tennis Association) rules have been changed to allow age-eligible professional athletes to participate in National championships. Co-director Andrea Norman notes, "Allowing professional players has raised the level of competition. It creates a heightened, more intense atmosphere that is good for both the players and the sport of tennis." This year, six professional players have elected to come to San Jose for a chance at the coveted gold ball and a wildcard entry into the US Open, both of which are awarded to the winner of the singles and doubles championships. Jessica Kirkland, the tournament's number one singles seed, has a ranking on the women's professional tour of 252. The champions and high-placing finalists will also receive gold tennis bracelets courtesy of National Tennis Championships and beautiful floral bouquets provided by Bloomsters.

The tournament also features a college coaches' forum, where over 50 coaches from around the nation fly out to meet with the players and discuss college and scholarship opportunities. Other highlights included a catered dinner by Malibu Grill, a players' luncheon catered by Togo's and Kid's Day at the Nationals, when more than 100 children from the San Jose area visit the tournament site to learn about the game of tennis, have lunch and get player autographs.

Overall, it promises to be a great week! Come out and support the best junior players in the nation. Admission is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
