IMG Bollettieri Tennis Academy student and American, Ryan Harrison, won his second career professional tennis title this week at the Men’s $10,000 Future in Laguna Niguel, California. In addition to the singles title, Harrison also took home the doubles title as well!  Harrison, who is only 17 years old, entered the event unseeded and in the final defeated the fifth seed, Richard Bloomfield of Great Britain, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5. This was the second consecutive week that he has reached the finals of a tournament, after he advanced to the finals in Costa Mesa last week. His first pro title came in June 2009, when he won the $15,000 future in Shingle Springs, CA. He is now ranked a career high of #526 in the world, which is up over 1300 spots since May.

Harrison will also be playing in the Venetian Macao Tennis Showdown with IMG Bollettieri alumni Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras and fellow Bollettieri student Yuki Bhambri later this month. He is certainly one of the best young pros in the world, and is someone to keep your eye on in the coming months and years.

  1. So how long until we see this kid as a quali? Do you think he has what it takes to go all the way? Good for him! I hope we get some fresh faces on the circuit.

    • He has the goods to be a real pro and I don’t think it will be long until he is making noise at the next level. Keep your eye on him!
