Happened to catch this earlier today on TV and the on social media.

A girl from California became the youngest girl to win a US Open match in nearly 20 years.  She won her set 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 over an opponent from Slovakia.  Her name is Catherine “CiCi” Bellis.

A few tidbits about CiCi Bellis:

  • She is the youngest player to win a US Open match since 1996 when Anna Kournikova played.
  • She is the youngest player in the US Open
  • This was her first ever game in the Women’s Tennis Association.
  • She beat the 13th-ranked player in the world.
  • Her victory was worth over $60,000 but she’s not keeping it.
  • She loves the crowds and having people watch her play.
  • Other than her instant fame in the tennis world, she’s a regular teenager.
