Catherine (CiCi) Bellis has had an exciting year since we last saw her in Midland for the 2016 Tennis Classic!

This Summer CiCi reached the third round of the US Open for the first time in her career and announced her decision to turn pro shortly after. CiCi clinched her first WTA title at the Hawaii Open in late November and will end the year ranked at No. 75 after a 15 match winning streak. Currently 17-year old CiCi is the only player under the age of 18 in the Top 100.

Unfortunately due to a hamstring injury and scheduling conflicts CiCi will not be able to compete in the 2017 Dow Tennis Classic. We wish her the best of luck in 2017 and hope to see her back in Midland in 2018!
