“Acceptances for the ITF Grade 1 International Spring Championships in Carson, Calif. were posted some time ago, with the boys field containing just three ITF Top 30 players (at the date of acceptance) and the girls just two.

Noah Rubin, who hasn’t played since the Eddie Herr, is at the top of the acceptance list, with Spencer Papa and Mackenzie McDonald, who have since fallen out of the Top 30, the other two.  Because the ISC is open to all players, there is an array of international competitors, with Japan’s Naoki Nakagawa, Mexico’s Lucas Gomez, Canada’s Tommy Mylnikov and Germany’s Alexandre Zverev among them.

Christina Makarova is at the top of the girls acceptance list, and she is followed by three international players: Victoria Rodriquez of Mexico, Sandra Samir of Egypt and Alejandra Cisneros of Mexico.  Jamie Loeb and Mayo Hibi, who have been having success on the Pro Circuit, will come into the juniors with added confidence.  Belinda Bencic of Switzerland and Americans Katerina Stewart, Louisa Chirico and Sachia Vickery have withdrawn, as did Thai Kwiatkowski and Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka.”
