Hampton Drake made it to the finals of doubles at the USTA National Clay Courts in the boys 16 and under division that was held in July in Delray Beach, Florida. He partnered with David Wilczynski of Richboro, Pennsylvania. They beat the #4 and #2 seeds to advance to the final round which was not played do to inclement weather. By a coin flip they won the silver balls as trophies, however this is definitely one situation where silver is as good as gold!
Congrats Hampton on your first national ball!
