GA's Lindsay Burdette Takes Runner-up Honors at Super Nationals

December 3, 2002 11:57 AM

LINDSAY BURDETTE

Lindsay Burdette of Jackson, Ga., currently ranked seventh in the country in the girls’ 14s, has had a sensational year in 2002, posting impressive results at a number of prestigious tournaments on the junior tennis circuit. Burdette's most recent accomplishment was reaching the finals of the USTA Super National Winter Championships, where she fell to Elizabeth Plotkin by a score of 6-1, 4-6, 6-3. Impressive, right? What makes her run at the Super Nationals even more impressive is that she played in the 16s, despite the fact that she won't turn 15 until February 2003!

In other singles play, Burdette finished runner-up at the Chanda Rubin American Junior Tennis Classic-Atlanta and advanced to the semifinals of the Panama Bowl, both 18-and-under events on the ITF World Junior Circuit. In doubles, she reached the quarterfinals of the Chanda Rubin Van Der Meer ITF Junior Classic, South Carolina, another 18-and-under event, and earlier in the year, she won the championship at Teen Tennis in Telford, England, and advanced to the semifinals at Les Petits As in Tarbes, France, two of the most prestigious 14-and-under tournaments in the world.

Burdette, who was seeded third at the girls' 14 Eddie Herr International, comes from a strong tennis background. Her older brother, Andy, played tennis at West Point, older sister, Erin, currently plays on the Stanford University tennis team and younger sister, Mallory, is ranked 10th in the country in the girls’ 12s.
