American junior Claire Liu, 17, made it to the French Open junior final last month.

Liu got on the grass, and got on a roll. She won the tuneup event at Roehampton without dropping a set. And then she won the Wimbledon juniors, beating another American, Ann Li, in a three-set final.

Liu’s currently WTA Tour ranking is inside the top 300. But at this point she has a decision to make that faces most girls her age – college, or not?
