Milojevic wins Costa Rica's Coffee Cup

Jan 8 2013, 1:42am CST | by

San Jose, Jan 8 (IANS) Young Serbian tennis star Nikola Milojevic won the 48th Costa Rica's prestigious Coffee Cup (Copa del Cafe) to become the World's No.1 junior player.

San Jose, Jan 8 — Young Serbian tennis star Nikola Milojevic won the 48th Costa Rica's prestigious Coffee Cup (Copa del Cafe) to become the World's No.1 junior player.

Milojevic, who was seeded No.1 before clinching the title, beat Canada's Tommy Mylnikov in the final Monday to win the bowl's 150 points, reports Xinhua.

The Costa Rican competition is considered the second-most important junior (Under-18) tennis tournament in the world by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), after the "junior Grand Slam."

In the women's category, Russia's Varvara Fink beat her rival 2-6, 7-6(2), 6-2 to become only the second Russian ever to win the bowl.

Fink's win was a surprise upset as she entered the tournament seeded sixth but went on to defeat higher-ranked competitors.

Croatia's Franko Miocic and Chile's Guillermo Nunez won the men's doubles title while the women's doubles was won by Mexico's Alejandra Cisneros and Victoria Rodriguez.

The Coffee Cup showcases the best young talent in the world with many of its winners turning pro such as Guillermo Vilas, Ivan Lendl and the Swiss maestro Roger Federer, as well as Andrea Holikova, Jana Novotna and Sandra Wasserman.

US Falls To Its Lowest Spot In 16 Months In The New FIFA Rankings

Oct 23 2014 7:33am CDT | Source: Business Insider

The U.S. men's national team is ranked 23rd in the October FIFA Rankings, its lowest position since June of 2013. It's a six-spot drop from September. It's not a huge deal. FIFA's rankings are horribly flawed and don't take into account meaningful metrics like margin of victory. In addition, the U.S. has spent its post-World Cup friendlies trying to incorporate new players into the team. Since losing to Belgium in Brazil the U ...
