SAN DIEGO (CBS/AP) — Fifteen-year-old CiCi Bellis won the USTA Girls’ 18s National Championship on Saturday to earn a main-draw wild card into the U.S. Open, beating 16-year-old Tornado Alicia Black 6-3, 6-1.

Bellis, the Atherton player who is the second-ranked junior in the world, is the youngest USTA Girls’ 18s national champion since Lindsay Davenport also won at 15 in 1991.

Black is from Boca Raton, Florida.
