Wu Yibing brought a smile to Chinese tennis after capturing a milestone Grand Slam boys' singles title at the US Open.
The 17-year-old second seed from Hangzhou became China's first boys' Grand Slam singles champion by defeating Argentina's top-seeded Axel Geller 6-4, 6-4.
"I think this is proving ourselves and showing the world that Chinese boys can be good," Wu said, "and I hope I can be the first Chinese to be ranked Top 100."
In doubles, Wu joined with Taiwan's Hsu Yu-Hsiou to become the first all-Asian pair to capture the US Open boys doubles crown, defeating Japan's Toru Horie and Yuta Shimizu 6-4, 5-7, 11-9.[ Editor: WPY ]
