Fritz advanced to the quarterfinals of all four junior Grand Slam tournaments in 2015, including the French Open finals, where he lost to Tommy Paul, and the US Open finals, when he defeated Paul.

This grand slam triumph allowed him to complete the year as the top-ranked boy’s junior tennis player, earning him the title of 2015 ITF Junior World Champion.

Taylor is the first American to hold this championship since Donald Young did in 2005 and Andy Roddick did in 2000.

He returned to the Top 100 of the ATP rankings after reaching the final in New Caledonia, where he lost to Noah Rubin.

Following a defeat in qualifying at the Australian Open, he won his first Challenger title in two years in the inaugural event in Newport Beach, not far from his present home in Palos Verdes.

Taylor continued his excellent start by reaching the fourth round at Indian Wells, his first participation in the Round of 16 at a Masters tournament.
