Twin brothers Connor and Jake Krug, who will be freshmen at Out-of-Door Academy this fall, won the USTA Boys’ 14 national doubles title Saturday in Mobile, Ala.
The Krug twins, who were seeded No. 1, defeated the No. 8-seeded team of Evan C. Lee and Thomas Navarro 6-1, 7-5 in the final. The twins lost only one set in the tournament, and that came in the first set of their opening match.
The Krugs are the grandsons of ESPN basketball commentator and Lakewood Ranch resident Dick Vitale.
Their sister, Ava, won the USTA Girls’ 12 National Clay Court Championships last month in Boca Raton.
The twins are coached by Lance Luciani of Lakewood Ranch.
