USTA National Rankings: August- #5-1 - Boys 12



#5 Noah Schachter - Steilacoom, WA  (2711 Points) 


Schachter has top-3 finishes in a handful of major events this season.  Earlier this year, he finished 2nd at the National Winter Championships, before moving up to take on some older competition in the VTC Boys Dual Level 5 tournament.  Despite competing against 14 year olds, Schachter finished 2nd overall.  He followed that up with a strong 5th place finish in Delray at the Boys 12 National Spring Championships in May.  He also earned 3rd place at the same event in doubles with his partner Noah Makarome.  The success was ongoing this spring as Noah placed 2nd at the Boys 14 Endorsement Tournament and advanced himself to the quarterfinals at the National Clay Court Championships.



#4 Alexander del Corral - Dural, FLA  (2832 Points)


If you were wondering who won all the events that the other top players have been placing 2nd-5th in, the answer is Alexander del Corral.  Alexander won both of his regional tournaments to move into the national tournament hunt.  He followed that up with a victory at the USTA National Open this past February, defeating #4 ranked Patrick Kypson in the finals.  He and Kypson took to the court together again as doubles partners and finished 2nd at the same event.  Del Coral continued his winning ways at the USTA Boys National Spring Championship where he earned another singles and doubles title.



#3 Patrick Kypson - Greenville, NC  (2803 Points) 


There's nothing green about the kid from Greenville.  The experienced pre-teen tennis star has been hammering the competitive circuit this season.  In February he finished 2nd to Alex del Corral at the Open Nationals and then partnered up with him to win the doubles title at the same event.  At the National Spring Championships in Delray, Fla, Kypson made it to the quarterfinals and then, again, secured a doubles title with del Corral.  At the US Open Nationals in May, Kypson worked through elite competition and finished 2nd overall in singles and doubles.  After that, the Tar Heel State's native son turned it on, winning Nike's Jr. Southern Championship and Qualifying Tournament, the Southern Boys Closed Doubles Tournament and then finished 2nd most recently at the USTA Nationals Clay Court Championships.  Clay, hard-court, winter, summer, it doesn't matter for Patrick, he just Kyps-On-Truckin.


#2 Noah Makarome -  Wesley Chapel, FLA  (2814 Points) 

makaromeMakarome, the 12-year old from the Sunshine state, has been burning opponents in regional and national competition for the better part of this year.  Noah won both of his regional tournaments and the Seminole County Winter Tournament at the beginning of the year.  He finished 3rd at February's USTA National Open, partnered with Noah Schachter, making "The Galactic Super Noah's" (not an official name) the best same-first-name doubles team in youth tennis so far this season.  Since then, Makarome has been on a tear, winning the USTA National Open Singles and Doubles Championship this past May, and then earning a victory in June at the Florida State Closed Singles Tournament.


#1 Nathan Andrew Perrone - Mt. Laurel, NJ  (2884 Points)

nathan-perroneNathan Perrone has been paying his dues all season long on his way to number one.  The 12-year old has entered and placed well in most of the biggest USTA Junior tournaments in the country going back to last September with a win in the Level 4 Sectional Tournament.  He's followed that success with a first place finish at the USTA National Open a couple months later.  At the same tournament he also earned a 3rd place finish at the USTA National Open Doubles competition with partner Kevin Xu.  Most recently, Nathan finished 2nd at the Atlantic Club Open IX Tournament and then finished 3rd in both the USTA Boys 12 National Spring Championship and USTA Clay Singles Championship. 

The kid faces the best competition as often as possible, making his ranking as the top player clear cut.
