Wu becomes China's first boys Slam singles champion

Wu becomes China's first boys Slam singles champion

Second seed Wu Yibing became the first Chinese player to win a Grand Slam boys singles title by defeating Argentina's top-seeded Axel Geller 6-4, 6-4 in the US Open boys final. And the 17-year-old from Hangzhou joined with Taiwan's Hsu Yu-Hsiou to become the first all-Asian pair to capture the US Open boys doubles crown, defeating Japan's Toru Horie and Yuta Shimizu 6-4, 5-7, 11-9. "It's a really happy (feeling) to win the doubles and singles here," Wu said. "And thank you to all the Chinese people here. It's for China. It's for me." Wu squandered six championship points before taking the singles crown on his seventh opportunity when Geller swatted a forehand wide after 80 minutes. The only other Asian player to take the US Open boys title was India's Leander Paes in 1991. Geller, who plans to attend Stanford University, was runner-up in the boy's singles at Wimbledon this year.

David is such a sweet guy but must realize his friends are NOT his friends on court during a match. I certainly wish him the best.
