The Boys 18 Division began play on Tuesday at the 2012 Easter Bowl, as both the number one and two seeds, Mitchell Krueger of Aledo, Texas and Noah Rubin of Rockville Centre, N.Y., respectively, scored straight-set wins at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The second seeded Rubin was a 6-4, 6-3 winner over Nick Wood of Knoxville, Tenn. The top-ranked Krueger was a 6-1, 6-0 winner over Dylan Brown of Camarillo, Calif.

Also in action in the Girls 18s bracket, Oyster Bay, N.Y.'s Julia Elbaba, the number 14 seed at the event, fell to Rasheeda McAdoo of Boca Raton, Fla., the daughter of former LA Lakers great Bob McAdoo, 6-4, 6-2. Also in Girls 18s, the seventh-seeded Allie Kiick of Plantation, Fla., daughter of former Miami Dolphins star Jim Kiick, beat Tess Bernard-Feigenbaum of Ojai, Calif., 6-2, 6-0, both in the second round.

Last year’s girls’ 16s Easter Bowl champion Caroline Doyle pulled off a big upset beating 2011 18s finalist and number four seed Gabby Andrews of Pomona, Calif., 6-3, 6-3 to advance to the third round. Andrews was the 14s Easter Bowl champion two years ago.

“I tried to keep stepping up and attacking and not be on the defense because I knew she would attack a lot,” Doyle said. “Gabby is a very tough competitor. She's solid all-around and doesn't have an apparent weakness, and she's crafty with her hands as well.”

The 16-year-old Doyle, who lives in San Francisco, but trains at the USTA facility in Boca Raton, Fla., credits her solid play to her recent improvements she's made in her game.

“I've been working on trying to step up more and developing my serve and turning that into a weapon, because in the past my opponents have taken advantage specifically on my second serve,” Doyle said.

In the upset of the day, unseeded Mary Haffey of Naples, Fla., eliminated top-seeded Shannon Hudson of Virginia Beach, Va., 6-2, 6-2, in the Girls 16s draw. In the Girls 18s, the number three seed Chalena Scholl moved on with a straight-set 6-3, 6-4 victory over Katerina Stewart. After falling behind 4-2 in the second set, Scholl responded by winning four consecutive games to seal the victory.

“I was proud of myself for the way I came back and felt I played pretty good all day,” Scholl said. “After being down I started putting the ball in play and hit the ball deeper and controlled the points more.”

In the Boys 16s, fourth-seeded Henrik Wiersholm of Kirkland, Wash., advanced to the third round with a 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 victory over Drew Dawson of Irvine, Calif. After winning the first set, Wiersholm felt he let his emotions get the best of him in the second set.

“I got a little bit emotional and negative and he capitalized and won a couple breaks,” said Wiersholm. "I like the problem-solving aspect, and I do like that competition of winning and losing. But I also have a tough time with it for the same reason that I love competition. When I'm down it can get in my head.”
