Or perhaps the kid is just super talented and is the next big thing. Who knows. Tennis history is full of 1 match anomalies so we have no idea what this means.
...however it is hard not to be disappointed. Steve was undefeated in college. He is intense all the time. I would like to think there was some hellacious matches during his college career, such that my dissapointment would be justified here.
MY SUPER BAD. STEVIE PULLED IT OUT. A WIN IS A WIN. I DO NOT EXPECT DOMINANCE. GLAD TO BE WRONG ABOUT THE RESULT. GO STEVIE! GO USA!
Definitely will keep eye out on this 16 y.o. though
