Bradenton, FL – 9 September 2008 – IMG Academy would like to congratulate Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy student Devin Britton and Filip Krajinovic for their outstanding performances at the 2008 Junior US Open. Britton, 17, and Krajinovic, 16, played each other in the semifinals with Britton coming out the winner in a terrific match. Britton then fell in the finals to the world’s #1 ranked junior, Grigor Dimitrov. Britton had already pulled off a big upset in the first round when he beat world #3 Bernard Tomic in three sets. Congratulations again to both players!
The Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy was also extremely proud of two alumni: Serena Williams and Jelena Jankovic. Both ladies reached the finals of the 2008 US Open, and it was Serena Williams who came out on top in a very well played match. Williams has also now become the #1 ranked player in the world for the first time since 2003.
