This kid is just 16. He won a futures title last week in Pittsburgh, beating some good college players along the way and this week he beat some guy ranked in the 600's in his first round match. Curious to know what kind of game this kid has.

Great talent, no real weaknesses if I remember right. Actually does not look like average 16 year old kid. He is physically strong for his age.

Anyway winning ITF Futures is a huge surprise even though the tournaments are not as tough in summers as they are in winters.

I think US might have next big star coming from Tennessee...

Hard hitting baseliner I would say, at least on clay. Right handed, plays two handed backhand....The last 16 year old to win ITF Futures must be Nadal.

Does he attack and hit a lot of winners, or is he usually more on the defensive end.

Would not call a counter puncher...not seen on hard courts so cannot say how aggressive he can be. I assume pretty aggressive though...

Too bad his last name is Williams.. He won't be popular here.

Thud and blunder

There was some toolbox on here a while ago claiming to be Williams, but JollyRoger gave him such a smackdown, he hasn't been seen since.

Interesting- I posted a completely neutral comment about Sakumo earlier in this thread and it got deleted. Are we not allowed to talk about him?
