Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

I've read the article about Simone Alipeva in the May 16 printed paper. It was a bit longer and thorough than the internet article. Simone said that Orange Bowl was a huge experience for her, but unfortunately Simone had to go to the States without her parents because of visa problems!

Another thing which struck me was the huge travel expenses for the juniors. Michael Mortensen estimated the travel expenses for a junior (plus one parent) to be 500,000 DKK per year (when playing a full international schedule)!

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Five Danish junior girls are in the main draw at the G4 ITF Tennis Sweden Junior Cup 2011, Värnamo. Julie Noe had to play qualification to enter. She won her first two rounds but lost the qualification final. She could enter the main draw anyway as a lucky loser.

Three of the girls played 1st round matches today (MD):

Viyaleta SHATALOVA (BLR) defeated Julie NOE (DEN) 6-3 6-1
Lina AKESSON (SWE) (7) defeated Isabel FENGER (DEN) 6-3 6-0
Anna Signe RASMUSSEN (DEN) defeated Jovana PETROVIC (SWE) 7-5 6-4


Cecilie Melsted and Martine Ditlev will play their 1st round matches Wednesday. All five girls are also in the doubles draw (Melsted and Ditlev are a team).

Draws and Order of plays.

QF, singles (Danish results)

(1)Cecilie Melsted (DEN) def. (6)Charlotta Swenson-Backelin (SWE) 7-5 6-7(6) 6-2
Jacqueline Cabaj Awad (SWE) def. Anna Signe Rasmussen (DEN) 4-6 6-1 7-5
(8)Martine Ditlev (DEN) def. (2)Donika Bashota (SWE) 7-6(2) 6-1

Two Danish girls in the semi finals. That must have been a while ago (and Anna Signe was close too)!
Martine impresses me once again and reaches her first ITF semi.

Cecilie is up against (5)Jelena Dzinic (SRB) in her semi, while Martine is up against Jacqueline Cabaj Awad (SWE). GL to the two Danes.

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

ITF Tennis Sweden Junior Cup 2011, Värnamo (G4)

Final

(5)Jelena Dzinic (SRB) def. (8)Martine Ditlev (DEN) 7-5 2-6 7-5

Sadly Martine lost, but this was a very good tournament for Martine Ditlev. Impressive results, defeating #2 seed on the way to the final! And a very close three set final.


Jelena Dzinic and Martine Ditlev (right)

Martine is #677 on the IFT rankings at the moment, but she will take a huge leap into the top 500. Martine's next ITF tournaments:

Estonian Junior Open, G4, 31 May to 04 Jun 2011
ITF Odense, G4, 20 Jun to 25 Jun 2011

Good luck!

Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Good tournament by Martine. Maybe she deserves her own thread now as she is moving into the ITF-top 500?
