Re: Danish tennis

Good effort from the girls.

We can't know for sure, because Denmark and Liechtenstein didn't play against teams in the Moldova or Egypt pool, but I really think Denmark and Liechtenstein were the best nations. Solid play, good results. And a huge upset by Mai Grage against Steffi Vogt!

Re: Danish tennis

I know! Congrats to Mai! If they faced either Moldova or Egypt, Denmark would be in WGII.

Maybe next year!

Re: Danish tennis

10K Båstad II, Sweden

QR1


Cecilie Lundgaard Melsted (DEN) d. Victoria Pahlett (SWE) 63 36 62
Maja Ornberg (SWE) d. Malene Stripp (DEN) 57 62 62
Donika Bashota (SWE) d. Anna Signe Rasmussen (DEN) 75 36 64

Good win for Cecilie Melsted, who hasn't played much in 2013. Tough day for Malene. Played a GP final in Copenhagen - probably one of her biggest finals ever - and lost. Then played qualies in Sweden a few hours later, and lost in three.

Karen Barbat in MD. Let's hope she's fit! Skipped the Fed Cup because of her injured knee...

Re: Danish tennis

I accidentally stumbled across an old Danish U12 ranking list from 2002. It made for an interesting retrospective read.

Danish U12 rankings, girls, 08/08/2002

Code:
Rank #    Name                         Club         Points     Tournaments    Year of birth

1         Caroline Wozniacki           Farum        453,57         18             1990
2         Malou Ejdesgaard             KB            40,45         23             1991
3         Louise Randrup Noe           Vi/So         33,78         19             1990

13        Sofie-Amalie Smidt-Nielsen   Køge           9,25         15             1990
14        Claudia Bech                 Lyngby         8,60         18             1991
15        Simone Atke                  KB             7,78         15             1991
16        Julia Rasmussen              Holte          6,75         15             1990
17        Katrine Cieslar              KB             6,72         20             1991
18        Linea Dyrbye Jensen          Birkerød       6,31         17             1991
19        Mathilde Holck-Andersen      HIK            5,90         18             1990
20        Maria Lind                   Taarbæk        5,66         15             1991
21        Maria Jespersen              Helsingør      5,30         15             1991
Caroline was obviously in a league of her own. Seems like 1990-92 were good years for Danish tennis, as many of Denmark's present pros and Fed Cup players are on this list (Caroline, Malou, Karen Barbat, Maria Jespersen). Karen Barbat was still a U10 player, but was already quite good. This list sort of suggests that you have to be top 20 or so already at age of 10-12 in order to become an elite player but Mai Grage is an interesting exception. She's born 1992 but wasn't ranked at all this early in her career. It wasn't until she became a U14 player that she really started to climb in the rankings and eventually emerged as perhaps the biggest Danish talent since Caroline.

A few of these girls became solid U14, U16, and U18 players, but half of the girls have vanishesd completely from tennis sometimes in their teens. The girl ranked #12 is my avatar, btw.
