Team USA in Review:

Consistent results from a veteran and breakthrough performances from a relative newcomer led to Donald Young and CiCi Bellis being named Team USA Players of the Month for June.


The 27-year-old Young first reached the doubles final at the French Open, where he and Santiago Gonzalez fell to compatriot Ryan Harrison and Michael Venus. Young then made a seamless transition to grass, reaching singles finals both at the London Queen’s Club ATP 500 event and the ATP 250 the next week in Eastbourne.


The 18-year-old Bellis had similar success on both clay and grass. In her Roland Garros debut, Bellis beat 18th-seeded Kiki Bertens to reach the third round. Then, making her grass-court debut on the WTA tour, she toppled fourth-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro in the first round in Mallorca en route to a semifinal finish.
