American teenager CiCi Bellis was the year-end junior world No. 1.
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
If you really paid attention to the sport of tennis you might notice that there are plenty of promising young Americans coming up on the women's side, i.e. teenager CiCi Bellis.
Earlier this month, the 15-year-old San Francisco native finished 2014 as the year-end No. 1 junior, becoming the second American girl in three years to do so. Taylor Townsend turned the trick in 2012 when she became the first American girl in three decades to hold that distinction.
Catherine Cartan Bellis clinched that year-end No. 1 junior ranking with a quarterfinal victory at the Orange Bowl Junior Championships a couple weeks ago.
