When the world's best tennis players take the court in New York for the US Open, 9-year-old Gabby Price will be watching closely -- because this tennis phenom may be be the next great American champion.

The episode reveals Gabby's incredible talent and adorable charisma, giving viewers a rare window into the makings of true greatness.
