Rolle, Ahsha, Rolle!

A A

A Miami Shores tenisista is getting national recognition at the U.S. Open this week. Ahsha Rolle (number 109) beat 17th ranked Tatiana Golovin in the tournament’s first round, a mind-blowing upset. Then in the sedcond, she whacked 57th ranked Karin Knapp in three sets.

A picture of Rolle, who was profiled in New Times last year, is posted at the town tennis courts.

The win rather vindicated her parents, who have spent as much as $60,000 per year to help the young lady travel to tournaments around the country. The New York Times blogged about her and produced a video. Bloomberg and the Sporting News also described her.

Next up for her: doubles and the third round.

And watch out. Ahsha’s little sister, Tiya, who went pro recently, is also on the rise.
