July 14, 2009 07:00 AM
Florida players will show up en masse, including Boys 18s No. 1 seed Frederick Saba of Ft. Lauderdale, when 400 of the nation's top junior tennis players make the trip to Delray Beach, Fla., on July 19-26, 2009, for the USTA Boys 18 & 16 National Clay Court Championships hosted by the City of Delray Beach.

The junior grand slam event will include a televised program on Fox Sports Florida and nationally on Direct TV and Dish (Sports Package), featuring highlights of both the Boys 18s & 16s singles finals. Also 100 NCAA college coaches will be in attendance to get a look at the nation's top juniors and the next crop of college stars. The Boys 18s winner will receive a wildcard into the qualifying event for the 2010 ATP Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

Illinois' Evan King, who trains full-time at the USTA Training Center in Boca Raton, won last year's Boys 18 title. He will attend the University of Michigan this fall.
