Jade Lewis had a coming-of-age of sorts at the last pro tennis event on Hilton Head Island.
The 14-year-old Van Der Meer Academy freshman -- daughter of Van Der Meer instructor, former ATP Tour player and New Zealand Davis Cup standout David Lewis -- won her first pro matches in the Head Women's $10,000 USTA Pro Circuit Tournament in May after qualifying as a wild card.
She eventually lost to Clemson's Yana Koroleva, who would go on to win the tournament.
That could bode well for 15-year-old Raveena Kingsley. Kingsley knocked off Lewis 7-6 (6), 6-4 Tuesday in the first round of the ITF Van Der Meer Shipyard Women's $10,000 tournament.
Never miss a local story.
KIngsley had quite a summer, winning USTA events in Maryland and New Jersey and reaching the Girls 16 semifinals of the USTA G18-16 National Championships in San Diego.
Ranked 456th and 7-6 this year in ITF singles competition, Kingsley advances to play Thursday against second-seeded Ciara Scholl, a 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 winner over Emily Harman on Tuesday.
Ellie Halbauer pulled off the day's only upset, knocking off sixth-seeded Julian O'Neill 7-5, 6-4.
