Young, upstart American, Christina McHale upset 8th seeded Marion Bartoli on the Grandstand Court Wednesday, 7-6, 6-2. McHale has been climbing the rankings and finds herself at 55th in the World in Singles, with a bullet. Performances like today will not do anything to hurt those rankings.
With the Williams sister's better days behind them, there is a new group of American teens such as McHale and Madison Keys, who may just be the future of American tennis on the womens side.
McHale has a lot of weapons in her pocket. She is athletic and moves the court very well. Could this be a breakout tournament for the New Jersey teen? With the buzz by the crowd around the Grandstand Court, it is evident that many feel that it could be.
