Trondson, Zampardo win 2022 USTA Boys’ and Girls’ 18s National Indoor Championships

December 01, 2022


Eighteen-year-olds Hank Trondson and Maddy Zampardo are closed out the 2022 tennis year by winning one of the USTA's top annual prizes: a coveted gold ball. Nashville's Trondson and Zampardo, of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich., led the way as the two 18s singles champions at last week's USTA Boys’ and Girls’ National Indoor Championships.

No. 14 seed Trondson beat Sacramento's Emon van Loben Sels 6-4, 6-3 in the final. A Tennessee state champion at the Ensworth School in Nashville, Trondson will play college tennis next year at Oklahoma.

 

En route to victory, Trondson knocked off two Top 10 seeds including Alex Fuchs (Los Altos, Calif.), who teamed up with van Loben Sels to win the boys’ 18s doubles title. The pair defeated No. 2 seeds Caden Hasler (Pleasant Grove, Utah) and Dylan Tsoi (El Dorado Hills, Calif.) 8-3 in an eight-game set to win the title.

 

Sixth-seeded Zampardo upset top seed Valerie Glozman (Bellevue, Wash.), 6-1, 3-

6, 7-5 in the girls' final. 

Glozman notably finished runner-up at the USTA Girls’ 18s National Championships this summer, won a round in the US Open Qualifying Tournament, and was a member of the title-winning junior U.S. Billie Jean King Cup team last month.

 

Zampardo is a high school senior at the University Liggett School in suburban Detroit and is committed to play college tennis at North Carolina State University next year. Zampardo later teamed up with Susanna Maltby (Glen Ellyn, Ill.) to sweep the girls’ 18s titles, as they defeated Erin Ha (Tenafly, N.J.) and Stephanie Yakoff (Fort Lee, N.J.), 8-5, in the doubles final.

 

Full results and locations for the four age divisions can be found below.

 

There were recurring themes in the 16s and 14s divisions, as two New Yorkers triumphed in the 16s division and the top seeds swept the 14s. No. 4 seed Dominick Mosejczuk from Queens defeated No. 7 seed Ian Mayew, 7-6(3), 6-3, to capture the boys’ 16s title, and No. 9 seed Julia Werdiger knocked off No. 10 seed Elena Daskalova in the girls' 16s final, 6-3, 6-2.

 

No. 1 seeds Jack Secord (Lake Forest, Ill.) and Christina Lyutova (Newport Beach, Calif.) won the boys’ and girls’ 14s singles titles, respectively. Antanas Daugis (Staten Island, N.Y.) and Priscilla Sirichantho (Woodbridge, Conn.) rounded out the singles champions as the boys’ and girls’ 12s winners, respectively.
