The tournament attracted some of the best young tennis players from around the world, with athletes representing the Bahamas, United States, Trinidad, Brazil, Japan, Jamaica, Denmark, Hong Kong, Germany, Mexico, Russia, Italy, Canada, India, Aruba, Venezuela and more.

This is the second international win in a row for the 17-year-old tennis phenomenon, as just over a week ago she was crowned the Ladies U/18 Champion following her straight sets win in the Delray Junior L6 Super Series Tennis Tournament in Florida.
