07/28/06 - Greenville, SC – Rising junior star and D-Squad member Zach Hunter teamed with Brennan Boyajian to win the Boys 16 USTA National Clay Court Doubles Championship this past weekend at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, MD. Relying on the Dunlop M-Fil 200 racquet to produce electrifying backhands, Hunter helped his team storm back from a first set loss to win the match 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. The USTA National Clay Courts title is Hunter’s second, as he and Boyajian teamed up to win the 14-year-old age group title in 2004.
“Brennan and I have been coming close to a title the last few times out, so it’s good to win once again,” said Hunter. “This could be my breakthrough victory this season. I feel great. My racquet feels great. I am excited about the rest of the summer.”
According to Fallon Koon, D-Squad Manager, Dunlop Sports Group Americas, “We are very proud of Zach. He faced some stiff competition and never retreated when the pressure set in. Not only is this a big win for Zach, this win will certainly give the Dunlop D-Squad a boost, as well.”
Hunter, a native of Weston, Florida will be in action next at the USTA Zone Team Championships and then at the USTA National Championships in Kalamazoo, Michigan in August.
