While Dominic Thiem plays the biggest match in his career so far at the French Open, the other ATP Young Guns have taken their talents to the grass courts for the short-but-sweet grass season before Wimbledon.
After suffering a first round, straight set loss to Dusan Lajovic at the French Open, world No. 53 Denis Kudla didn’t waste any time getting onto the grass courts. He participated in the Aegon Manchester Trophy, a Challenger tournament where he was the top seed. While in Manchester, the 23-year-old American showed off his tweener skills and visited the Manchester City Football Grounds.
World No. 93 Taro Daniel also took the court at a Challenger in Furth, Germany after losing in the second round of Roland Garros to Stan Wawrinka. Daniel was the top seed at the tournament, but unfortunately he fell in the second round to unseeded Thiago Monteiro. However, Daniel didn’t let his unfortunate loss stop him from enjoying the sights in Germany, or enjoying some pho after an evidently tough one year apart from it.
18-year-old Taylor Fritz showed that love doesn’t always mean nothing to tennis players by proposing to his girlfriend, junior tennis player Raquel Pedraza in front of the Eiffel Tower.
After a first-round exit at the French Open, the world No. 67 seemed overjoyed to be on grass at the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, Germany.
