VIDEO: Delpo and Cilic in 2002 Orange Bowl Final
By Chris Oddo
(December 6, 2012) --
Junior Orange Bowl
taking place this week in Plantation, Fla., we thought our readers might enjoy taking a look back to yesteryear, once upon a time when
Juan Martin del Potro
met in the 14s final.
The match took place in 2002 and was won by Del Potro, 6-2, 7-6(5). A few chapters and a few high-stakes Grand Slam battles later, we come to find that Orange Bowl finals between 14-year-olds can indeed help us determine future stars of the game. All the more reason to watch monitor the results of this week's event more closely.
We realize that many of you have already seen this (as the nearly 90,000 views attest), but for those who haven't, you are in for a doozy.
