From junior title to Challenger title


Within a week, 17-year-old Yibing Wu of China won both the US Open juniors in New York … and his first career Challenger title in Shanghai.

Wu benefited from two retirements, including No. 1 seed Yen-Hsun Lu after the first set of their final.  Still, with the excitement in New York, no doubt jet-lagged, pretty nice work.


Only three others have won a junior Slam title and a Challenger title in the same year over the past five years: Nick Kyrgios, Alexander Zverev and Taylor Fritz.

Doubtful they did it the same week.
