Tornado Alicia Black is a fifteen year old prodigy who roared onto the national tennis stage in 2013 when she captivated fans at the U.S. Open with her dazzling skills and talent. As a wild-card, in the Juniors event, she raced all the way to the finals before finally losing. She was the talk of the tournament and drew massive crowds to her matches. She attracts attention as much for her name as for her performance on the court. Her parents gave her the unconventional name Tornado because she displayed her relentless talent for tennis at a very young age. They felt that, with the unusual name, she along with her younger sister (Tyra) Hurricane, will get the attention of fans and the media. Their plan has succeeded! Look for Tornado to do some serious damage again this year at the Open!
