The state of Kentucky is probably best known athletically for basketball and horse racing, but other sports are gaining ground, one of which is tennis. Players seem to be getting even better at younger ages, and the bluegrass continues to be a hot spot for talent. One young player turning heads in the world of tennis is Carrie Beckman. She is only 13 years old but already has a few impressive wins under her belt.
