Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

AEGON Junior International London, U16

2R: Emilie Francati (DEN) def. (3) Freya Christie (GBR) 7-6(5) 6-3

Emilie continues to impress! This time she defeated the #3 seed Freya Christie (another young talent - also 13 years). Emilie doesn't play doubles in London, but Frederikke Karst does, and she won her 1st round with an English partner. GL to the the two Danes next round

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Emilie lost

QF: Nicole Shakhnazarova (GBR) d. Emilie Francati 6-4 6-2

But getting two wins at an international U16 is actually quite good. I thought a U16 maybe was a bit too ambitious, but I was wrong! It'll be interesting to see Emilie at the Danish indoor senior championships next week! There's always a risk that she draws Hanne Skak, Mai Grage, or Karen Barbat in the 1st round - there's not anyone can do about that!

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Good result by Francati. She is really improving. Also a good win by Martine. She needs some tailwin after a long period with disappoiting losses.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

The Danish senior Championships have begun! More than two thirds of the entries are juniors, so this week will be a great opportunity to follow the Danish juniors! There is live cam on the center court (and live score under the cam window):

Two of the most talented Danish girls, Martine Ditlev (b. 1996) and Emilie Francati (1997) have just started their 1st round match on cam! Tough draw for Emilie (in red). GL to both

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Haha, excellent setup by the tournament organisers. Very good quality for a webcam even though sounds is a bit sharp. Looks like Emilie is on top of this one

Fight back by Martine... No umpire at the nationals?

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

I've been busy, so I've only had a glance at the monitor once in a while. But there were a few good rallies, and a few nice shots. And they also misses a lot, of course.

To answer the question: There are no umpires (maybe in the later rounds or finals?). But there is a referee at place, and they can adress him if they're in doubt of the ruling (which happens occasionally).

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Thanks, Looks like Emilie is playing more of a all or nothing power game, and not giving herself too help with her shot placement. She started to make errors when ahead... Martine has been better at keeping her shots under control/adjusting her length, and also seems to be making better shot selections at the moment.
