watched a lot of juniors at the orange bowl a week ago and there is really none. at least none who played there.

all of them are college players at best.

Not sure who I am going to cheer now that most of the Americans are on the decline....

Any international juniors that you saw that were interesting?

Katerina Vankova was a bit of a surprise for me. She hits hard and flat off both sides and probably has the best backhand in junior tennis. She is lefty. She needs to add some spice to her serve and a bit of variety. She doesn't have a lot of funs here on this board (to my surprise), but she should go far with her game.

Ksenia Milevskaya and Ursula Radwanska are the other ones who should go far. The rest (out of the ones I saw) are nothing special and should start looking for a college/university.

tenn_ace used to write long reports from Key Biscayne for the NASDAQ in Russian Roulette.
What's going on with juniors?

I guess, a bit of dissapointment with the state of junior tennis. I really think it's the lowest in eyars. (PS. When saying junior tennis I mean those who play on a junior curcuit)

Did you see Nikola Hofmanova? I guess she must be pretty good since she won the Orange Bowl...........

Do you think the best juniors aren't playing the junior curcuit?

Re: Promising US juniors?

the field in Orange Bowl isnt in the same level as for a slam.
only ones who really play there are if the #1 depends on it, and if there's a chance to get a end of yr top 10 rank.

Chelsey i saw at Wimbledon........ not bad but she'll do well do get near where her big sis is.
