About: It was a good start to the year for 13-year-old tennis star Owen Dunn. Dunn, who trains at Carleton University and Tennis Outaouais Performance in Gatineau, started 2018 atop the rankings of boys tennis players under the age of 14, according to the Rogers Rankings and Tennis Ontario. Dunn is also the number 2 player in the country in his age group, based on the Canadian ranking-system that uses similar rules to that of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and International Tennis Federation (ITF). He finished the month off by making it to the quarterfinals of singles play at the U14 Indoor National Selection Series, as well as to the tournament’s semifinals in doubles play.
