Jamie Hampton, a native of Auburn, AL, made her first appearance in a Futures final at the Baylor Medical Center Pro Tennis Classic on Sunday, fairing against the top-seeded American Alexa Glatch. The contest was held at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center on the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX.

Hampton sailed through the $10,000 USTA Pro Circuit event, knocking off fifth seed Salome Devidze and the unranked Helena Besovic. She met Nicole Leimbach in the semifinals, losing the first set 3-6, but rallying up a win in the remaining sets, 6-2, 6-4.
Top seeded Alexa Glatch finished the finals on top after defeating the 16-year old Hampton 6-4, 6-1 in the championship game.
