Tennis Europe Nations Challenge u12

The european team u12 competition final draw will be played next week.

Here's the results of qualifying rounds http://www.tenniseurope.org/page.aspx?id=16493

The 8 teams that make the final draw are Czech Republic, Romania, Portugal, Ukraine, Great Britain, Russia, Serbia and Spain.

This are the nominations by team http://www.tenniseurope.org/file_download.aspx?id=36211

Portugal make the final rounds for the first time, and it's the first time that France is not in the final 8. I'm very happy for spanish team, i thought it was the weakest team from spain in this competition, and even being true that this time we don't have any top player like in the past years (Sorribes, Payola) they prove that are good competitors and show a good level.
My absolute favourite is Great Britain wich have a really strong team, they had a strong team last year too, but they failed in qualifying, this year they won without any problems in the previous rounds. Czech Republic and Romania have a strong teams too, and of course in this competition you have to pay attention to Ukraine and Russia, specially Ukraine that this year has a stronger team than last one

GBR I really think we can win it this year! I thought we could win it last year too with Maia Lumsden, Gabriella Taylor and Jazzi Plews, but they didn't do so well.

Re: Tennis Europe Nations Challenge u12

Yes, GBR last year was really disapointing, they had a really strong team but they didn't even played the play off, but i think this year the team is even stronger. I think Mihkeeva is undefeated in u12 tournaments, and Axon and Swan are really strong players.

And Portugal was a nice surprise, Marta Oliveira has some good results but Italy was favourite in their group

Re: Tennis Europe Nations Challenge u12

The final will start tomorrow

Group A

Great Britain vs Spain
Ukraine vs Czech Republic

Group B

Russia vs Serbia
Portugal vs Romania

Group A is really strong, in my opinion the two clear favourites to win the tournament are Ukraine and Great Britain, now we know they can't face in the final because they are in the same group. Czech Republic is a strong team too.

I think the most important match in group B it will be the Russia vs Romania, because in my opinion they are the favourites to play the final on that group

Re: Tennis Europe Nations Challenge u12

Is Andreea the sister of Ioana or is it just a common name like Bogdan and Radu?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.
