Teen Talk - Stefan Kozlov (USA)


By Sandra Harwitt

At just 15-years-old, Stefan Kozlov is no stranger to doing interviews. He's been talked about as a future prospect for the USA since his age could be written in single digits.

This is Kozlov’s second consecutive year participating in the Junior Davis Cup for the USA. This time around he’s the No. 1 boy on the fourth-seeded USA squad. 

Kozlov’s current combined ranking is No. 14 and with his 76(0) 64 win over Dutchman Tim van Rijthoven on Tuesday, he has a 27-10 win-loss record for the season. Kozlov’s best result at the junior Grand Slams this year was reaching the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

In the USA’s opening match, Henrik Wiersholm shutout Casper Bonapart 60 60. And in the doubles, Wiersholm and Tommy Paul defeated Joris Bodin and van Rijthoven 62 63 for the USA to take a perfect 3-0 win over the Netherlands.
