Day Two at the Nick Bollettieri Discovery Open at IMG Academy

Saturday Wrap:

Play began at 9:30am for both boys and girls, amidst sunny skies. Several morning matches extended three hours, as players battled their way to the next round. Throughout the day, participants also partook in Combine360 testing - a measurement tool that provides a baseline of one's athleticism - led by IMG Master Trainer Stacey Daniels. Round of 16 play resumed at 2:30pm. Nick Bollettieri spent the afternoon surveying matches. In one of the greatest battles of the day, Lancelot Carnello of Sweden prevailed over Tristan Boyer of the U.S. in another three-hour match.
