Last week, the Miami Open and a few ITFs were the locations for American's winning titles and making deep runs. Here are the ones who made the biggest impact on the WTA and ATP Tours last week:
Quarterfinalist, Miami Open
Before the Miami Open, Sebastian Korda had never reached the second week of a Masters 1000 tournament. He finally achieved a quarterfinal run this year before falling to Andrey Rublev. The 20-year-old took down Fabio Fognini and Diego Schwartzmann along the way.
Doubles semifinalist, Miami Open
With her doubles partner, Iga Sqiatek, Mattek-Sands reached the semifinals at the Miami Open before losing to the Japanese pair, Ena Shibahara and Shuko Aoyama. The American previously won the doubles title in Florida in 2016.
Champion, ITF M15 Pune
The American did not have much trouble at the M15 ITF tournament. Crawford dropped only one set in India across the 5 matches. This was the 20-year-old's first title since winning the M15 in Santo Domingo in November last year.
Doubles Champion, ITF W25 Dubai
Emina Bektas secured another ITF title. This time, the 28-year-old won the doubles title with her usual partner Tara Moore at the ITF W25 tournament in Dubai. Primarily a doubles player, Bektas has won 18 doubles titles at the ITF level throughout her career.
Doubles finalist, Miami Open
An American was able to reach the final of the Miami Open, but sadly could not win it. Hayley Carter alongside partner Luisa Stefani, lost to Ena Shibahara and Shuko Aoyama. Her performance before the final was almost flawless, dropping only one set throughout the tournament.
