You can see his name in the draw here.

Here's some background information.

Also he is deaf  :scared: He must have amazing touch with the racket, because hearing the sound the ball makes actually helps significantly with timing.

And that is a seriously epic name  :rofl_2: Remind me to root for this guy in 3-4 years when he becomes relevant

Heard about this. Word is that Stefan Kozlov was younger when he got his ranking. Not sure though.

Pretty good for 14 years old.
 
If he would have approached Fed he would have had his picture.
