Why do you say she needs to win a match first (don't know why you say he needs to win) when she's already won two tournaments and reached the finals of another. Do you think your obsession with someone else's 8 year old daughter is a healthy pastime?

I also learned USTA rankings for the G12s are a joke. Besides a few players, most of the girls are brutally bad.

In short, these tournaments are a huge waste of time and money at this stage of the game.
