LOS ANGELES - One of the top junior tennis players in the nation, Martin Redlicki from Illinois, has signed a grant-in-aid scholarship to join UCLA beginning this fall, head coach Billy Martin announced on Tuesday.

Redlicki, from Hawthorn Woods, Ill., is listed as a blue chip recruit (No. 13 in the nation) in the class of 2014 by TennisRecruiting.net. He has represented the United States in all four of the junior Grand Slams. His best result was at the 2013 U.S. Open where he reached the round of 16 in singles and won the doubles title with partner Kamil Majchrzak of Poland. He was a semifinalist in both singles and doubles (w/Luca Corinteli) at the 2013 Easter Bowl, also reaching the semifinals in doubles with Corinteli at the USTA International Spring Championships that same year. He also captured the doubles title at the USTA Boys' 18 National Clay Court Championships in 2013 (w/Paul Oosterbaan). Redlicki has spent the better part of the last year playing a number of Futures events as an amateur on the ITF Pro Circuit, reaching the doubles final in Palm Coast, Fla. (w/Taylor Fritz), and the semifinals at tournaments in Tampa, Fla. and Orange Park, Fla. (both w/Catalin Gard). Redlicki, who trains with USTA Player Development in Boca Raton, Fla., was ranked No. 12 in the 2013 Final USTA Combined Rankings and achieved a career-high junior ITF Ranking of No. 41 in July of 2013.

"This continues our tradition of getting some of the best players in America to join our program," said Martin, who recently completed his 21st season as head coach at UCLA with another run to the NCAA Semifinals. "Martin will definitely help us in singles, however as a U.S. Open doubles champion, he's going to be one of the top doubles players in the country from the moment he arrives on campus. I think his addition to our program is going to keep us in contention for a championship for the next three to four years."
