The U.S. failed to win any of the eight singles titles in the prestigious Florida tournaments. Argentina took three crowns, Ukraine two, and Serbia, Canada and China one each.
The Orange Bowl consisted of boys and girls 18 and 16 singles and doubles on clay in Plantation, Fla. The Junior Orange Bowl was comprised of boys and girls 14 and 12 singles only on clay and hardcourts in Coral Gables, Fla.
Only two Americans, both girls from the West, reached a singles final. Sixth-seeded Kayla Day of Santa Barbara, Calif., lost in the 18s, and ninth-seeded Naomi Cheong of Las Vegas fell in the 14s.
At least Americans won one doubles crown as unseeded McCartney Kessler of Calhoun, Ga., and Emma Kurtz of Atlanta prevailed in the girls 16s.
The only other U.S. finalist was Brian Shi of Jericho, N.Y. He and Nicaise Muamba of Canada lost in boys 16 doubles as the second seeds.
