The Optus Australian World Junior Tennis Competition team of Viktorija Rajicic (Vic), Molly Polak (Vic) and Rachel Pisarev (NSW) has qualified for the world final, to be held in Prostejov, Czech Republic, in August.
The fourth-seeded Australian team finished third in the Asia–Oceania qualifying event held last week in Shenzhen, China. China, Uzbekistan and Japan have also progressed through to the world final.
After a clean sweep over round-robin opponents Kazakhstan, Philippines and New Zealand, the girls went on to win 2-1 over India in the quarterfinals, before going down to Uzbekistan in the semis. The team rallied on the final day to win 2-0 over top seed Japan to finish third overall.
National touring coach Lisa McShea said, “The girls worked really hard for the whole event, doing everything they possibly could to win every single match. It was terrific to finish on such a high note, defeating the top seeds, Japan. The girls have had a wonderful experience and are now looking forward to the world final later this year.”
The ITF World Junior Tennis Competition is an international team event for boys and girls aged 14 and under. In 2007 the Optus Australian World Junior Tennis Competition team of Jason Kubler, Joey Swaysland and Ben Wagland won the world final.
The ITF World Junior Tennis Competition began 16 years ago. Past participants in the event include Lleyton Hewitt, Tommy Haas, Amelie Mauresmo and Kim Clijsters.
