Michael McClune is headed into the U.S. Open main draw, and he wouldn't mind taking on Roger Federer, the top-ranked player in the world, in his first match. McClune earned the wild card by defeating Ryan Thacher, 6-1, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, in the best-of-five USTA Boys' 18 National singles championship Sunday at Kalamazoo College's Stowe Stadium.

"Code violation, racket abuse. ... Point penalty. Game, set, match, Sandgren." Those are words that Bo Seal may be hearing in his worst nightmares. After Tennys Sandgren hit a winner and was ready to serve on match point, Seal slammed his racket to the court in frustration. He was given a point penalty for racket abuse and that gave Sandgren, the No. 1 seed, the United States Tennis Association Boys' 16 National singles title. Sandgren, of Gallatin, Tenn., defeated Seal, the fourth seed from Chattanooga, Tenn., 6-3, 6-2, Sunday afternoon at Kalamazoo College's Stowe Stadium.
