American Claire Liu wins Wimbledon junior title

American Claire Liu defeated Ann Li 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 in the junior final at Wimbledon on Saturday, becoming the first American girl in 25 years to win the junior title at the All England Club.

That streak was guaranteed to be ended on Saturday, as Liu is from California, while Li is from Pennsylvania.

The last American to win the title was Chanda Rubin in 1992. The last all-American final was in 1979 when Mary Lou Piatek beat Alysia Moulton.
