Fifteen-year old Harrison defeats Cuevas at Houston, wins first ATP-level match


We have a new American star on the rise - well, maybe.

Fifteen-year old qualifier Ryan Harrison won his first round match against Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas 6-4, 6-3 at the U.S. Clay Court Championship on Monday. Ryan becomes only the third player this decade to win an ATP tour-level match before his 16th birthday, following Rafael Nadal's win at Mallorca and Richard Gasquet's win at Monte Carlo, both in 2002.

Pretty good company, huh?
