Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy student and American Jordan Cox reached the finals of the Junior Wimbledon Championships today by defeating another NBTA student and American Devin Britton. The match was an epic battle between two boys who know each other very well (they are playing doubles together there!). Cox won 6-3, 6-7(5), 16-14 in  a match that lasted over two and a half hours. Both boys played outstanding tennis and it came to Cox breaking Britton at 15-14 in the third set.

Cox will now face Russian Andrey Kuznetsov in the finals after Kuznetsov defeated another NBTA student, Bernard Tomic, 6-3, 7-6(6). This will be the first meeting between the 17-year old Cox and the 18-year old Kuznetsov. Currently, Cox is ranked #80 in the world in the junior rankings and Kuznetsov is #35.

Congratulations to Jordan for reaching the finals and also congrats to Devin and Bernard for getting to the semis!
