Who is this 17-year-old teenager who stunned the world with a defeat over past US Open champion Samantha Stosur? Victoria Duval, that’s who. I think with the way this young lady played in the first round the world is going to see a lot of her. Duval  was excited that she was able to win the match.

She said, “I played amazing, so I’ll take it.” You bet she will take it. The young lady who looks to be having a blast at the U.S. Open it set to move on in the tournament. She had to qualify to get in and last year she didn’t fair to well. Victoria Duval took up tennis with only one goal in mind.

She wanted to beat her bothers in the sport and now she is beating past U.S. Open Champs. Not a bad start to a young career. Duval is the youngest child in her family and she has already been through a lot in her young life. Her father was buried in the earthquake in Hati when the house he ran a clinic in caved in on top of him.

Duval had to witness her mother taking the phone call from her father who didn’t think he would make it out alive. This is a great story with the way Victoria Duval is playing in the U.S. Open….Good for her. This could be the next big star….

When she was asked if she could be the next up and coming U.S. Tennis star she said; ”That’s what I’m working for,” she said. “If God will let it, then let’s go.”
