Ocean Drive - - Past Champions -

Cather­ine Bel­lis aka Cici, ex­udes en­ergy in­deed; the 17-year old dy­namo born in the good, ole US of A, swung her way to her third round match at the US OPEN this past Septem­ber in front of a roar­ing crowd. The red, white and blue home- grown fans gave Bel­lis a warm wel­come when she en­tered the match. As the youngest player ranked in the WTA top 100 at the end of 2016, she is revving up for the new year and al­ready has one sin­gles ti­tle on the WTA tour and six sin­gles and two dou­bles ti­tles on the ITF tour in her ca­reer. This Amer­i­can Nextgen player is even up on the hottest trends off the court, in­clud­ing a video with her friends tak­ing the man­nequin chal­lenge decked out in their ten­nis gear on the court. A-maz­ing! You must check it out. Bel­lis is def­i­nitely one to watch in the sin­gles rounds, and she con­tin­ues to pur­sue her climb in the rank­ings in the dou­bles matches as well. Way to go!
