Despite the rain and lightning for much of Saturday, the USTA Tournament held at the IMG Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy was able to finish play in eight of the ten draws with the last two finals being held this morning. With most of the seeded players advancing to the finals in their respective draws, there were two players that did not want to lay down so easily. Ironically enough, they are from the same family.
Raahil and Rheeya Doshi of Singapore both won their respective draws at the tournament this weekend. In the Girls 16's Division, Rheeya upset the 1st seed Lauren Proctor of Bradenton in straight sets 6-2, 6-3 to claim the title. Her brother, Raahil, also won in commanding fashion as he took out Maurice Russo of New York 6-1, 6-1. As current students at the IMG Academy Bollettieri tennis program, they have shown how hard word can definitely pay off. Congratulations to the Doshi Family!
