Great performance by the Algerian. She's born 1999! Well done by Simone and Emma

The two remaining Danes - Simone and Emma - will play against each other in the QF!

Ines Ibbou (ALG) def. (4) Jelena Lukic (SRB) 6-2 6-1

Wow, Emma! The Algerian Ines Ibbou defeated Emilie Francati (Emma's clubmate from Gentofte) earlier in the tournament. It will be a tough final for Emma later today, but Emma seems strong at the moment. Good luck!

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

There was an interesting match yesterday at "Kjøbenhavns Erhvervsklub Cup".

2R: Emilie Francati d. Anna Signe Rasmussen 60 46 61

Anna Signe Rasmussen won the Danish U18 championship a few weeks ago, while Emilie won the U14 championship. And I think Emilies win yesterday shows that the next generation of Danish girls are much better than we've seen for some years! The future of Danish tennis seems brighter now than year ago.

I'm sure that Emilie - still only 13 - will have problems in the QF against Cecilie Melsted, but it will be an interesting match. It must be the first time they play against each other. Melsted defeated Emma Rønholt 6-4 6-3 in round 2, but Emma (also 13 y.o.) put up a relatively good fight (judging by the scoreline).

It seems like Simone never was a Danish citizen! Apparently she only has a Bulgarian passport. I had no idea! Niklas Rosengren, talent coach at the Danish Tennis Federation, explains:

Quote:
”Det er endnu uklart, hvornår Simone reelt har mulighed for at få et dansk pas. Så længe Simone udviser den rette indstilling til tingene, vil vi naturligvis bakke op om hendes tennisspil. Af den grund har vi også udtaget Simone til de Nordiske Mesterskaber for ungdomshold i KB. Dette kan lade sig gøre, da vi selv arrangerer NM i samarbejde med tennisforbundene i Sverige, Norge og Finland. I Tennis Europe- og ITF-regi er reglerne straks mere strikse,” siger Niklas Rosengren.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Cecile Melsted had no problems against Emilie Francati at the KB tournament (part 6 of the Danish Grand Prix series):

QF: Cecile Melsted def. Emilie Francati 6-1 6-1

I had expected Emilie to do a little better, since Emma Rønholt was able to win 7 games against Melsted. There was a big surprise, however, in the next round!

SF: Martine Ditlev def. Cecile Melsted 6-1 6-2

This was quite an upset! Martine is up against Mai Grage in the final.

What a joke. Hopefully she will be able to change her passport soon. Strange that this appears now after several years of playing international tournaments.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

I don't know too much about the Alipieva case, but it seems like DTF (The Danish Tennis Federation) hasn't handled it very well.

Anyway, Mai Grage won the 6th tournament in the GP series:

Final: Mai Grage def. Martine Ditlev 6-4 6-2

I'm quite impressed by Martine's results lately. Defeating Melsted in the SF was totally unexpected, but Martine is also doing much better against Mai Grage than in their previous two matches in 2011 (both matches won convincingly by Grage 60 60, and 61 61 respectively).

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Thanks

Jyllandsposten's article is here:
http://spn.dk/andensport/tennis/article2431915.ece

A longer article was printed in the Jyllandsposten paper of Monday 16th of May (and not 2nd of May as advertised on this Simone Alipieva facebook page).
