Mary Joe Fernandez
"I must say, some of my best memories come from competing against players from all over the world at Flamingo Park. As I look back, winning the 18’s Junior Orange Bowl was integral in my decision to become a professional tennis player. If you look at the roster of Orange Bowl Champions, it’s very indicative of future success and I am proud to be associated with such a prestigious event."
