A few French teens were in finals of junior tournaments in the past 3 weeks - still always losing in the final though (apart from Mylène), that's a pattern
2 weeks ago, Alice Robbe
(2000) made the final of G4 ITF Junior Circuit in Lomé, Togo.
She was the 15th seed there, lost to US 4th seed Malkia Menguene (who is only a few months younger), 7-5 4-6 4-6 in the final.
Menguene beat another French girl, Chloé Cirotte
, just before in SF, 2 & 1.
Alice made the SFs of G5 Autolang Bodensee Junior Open in Switzerland the week before, and the SFs of G5 ITF/CAT African Junior Circuit II the week after, in Lomé again.
Speaking of these 2 other tournaments, Juliette Colard
(2000) was in the final of the Swiss G5!
She was the 5th seed there, fell to Swiss 4th seed Simona Waltert 3 & 4 in the final.
Waltert was the one Alice lost to in SF (got thrashed by her, 0 & 1
)... Good week for Juliette, with a notable good win over top seed Medina Sahinagic in QF, 7-5 6-3.
And both Alice and Chloé were in the SFs of the G5 in Togo last week.
Alice lost again to Menguene (who was the top seed that week), in SF this time, 2-6 5-7
As for Chloé, she won her SF match this time, 3-6 7-5 6-2 over 6th Destinee Martins
but she lost to Menguene in the final, 3 & 3
This Menguene girl has been pigeonificating the French girls in Africa
Don't know which year Chloé was born, but she's played U14 tournaments this year, so 2001 or after.
