Stockbridge,Georgia resident Taylor Townsend has added yet another major title to her impressive resume. Today Taylor and Canadian Eugenie Bouchard won the Girls’ Doubles Championship at Wimbledon. Townsend and Bouchard downed the team of Belinda Bencic and Ana Konjuh in straight set scores 6-4, 6-3..It is Townsend’s third grand slam title for 2012. Taylor won both Girls’ Singles and Doubles titles at the Australian Open in January. This Spring Taylor won the Easter Bowl tournament in California and assumed the top spot in the world, among junior girls players.
Now 16, Taylor will return to the United States to compete in several professional futures tournaments before going to New York for the US Open, where last year she competed in both the Juniors tournament and in the Women’s Doubles. Then comes to question of turning pro full time. My guess is that if Taylor is still the top ranked junior girl when the season ends,she will play the pro tour in 2013..
