Atherton's Bellis still considering Stanford after tennis success

 

FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. – Atherton resident and Stanford commit Cici Bellis had quite a few “wow” moments at the U.S. Open this year.

Winning three qualifying matches at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center just to get into the main draw got her stoked. Then winning her first two matches and going further than she ever had at a Grand Slam had her literally jumping up and down with excitement.

And then getting to play on the biggest court in the world, Arthur Ashe Stadium, against No. 2 seed Angelique Kerber? Even though Bellis was crushed, 6-1, 6-1, she could barely contain her excitement afterward.
