The 14-year-old Team Solinco athlete spent the majority of his holidays traveling the country to compete in two of the most prestigious junior tournaments in the world. In the end, the trip was well worth it, with Andy bringing home two singles titles and one doubles title alongside his Team Solinco partner, Tyler Lee, at the Winter Nationals.
Orange Bowl Results
SINGLES CHAMPION: Andy defeated Gaines 6-3, 6-0 in just over an hour.
During the Orange Bowl in Florida, four days of rain rushed main draw action into a shorter window and cancelled the doubles competition for the first time. Andy, the No. 2 seed, quickly capitalized on his opportunities once match play resumed.
Using his exceptional control and counterpunching skills, Andy reached the final without dropping a set. He defeated Gaines 6-3, 6-0 in just over an hour to achieve his seventh consecutive straight-sets victory.
In a conversation with Collette Lewis, Andy shared that his tournament strategy remained consistent throughout: “It’s been pretty much the same strategy the whole tournament, mix it up, keep him off balance. I stayed very focused and I think that’s why I won this tournament. It’s something to be proud about.”
