Wow, it's been quiet here lately.
So here's a thread to talk about Stephanie, Aleksandra, Katarina, Ekaterina, Melanie, Valerie, Stephanie W., Tania, Sharon and all the other juniors.

At the Argentina Cup (grade 2), Ekaterina Shulaeva have beaten the 1st, 3rd and 10th seed to reach the final where she lost to the 6th seed Jozami. Zoricic lost in the 2nd round to a good british player. Shulaeva and Zoricic reach the quarters in double.

This week it's the Ascension Bowl(grade 1). Wozniak, Zoricic and Shualeva are all supposed to be in the main draw. And after that, it's the Banana Bowl, and good news: Sharon Fichman has commited!

Well E-kat had a great run this week. Im so happy for her. And i so can't wait for the return of young sharon. Hope she kicks some ass.

Alex is kicking ass this week. She is in the semis of a grade 1. Keep going :D

Mar 17th, 2004, 11:42 PM
Alezk is in the 3rd round at the Banana Bowl. She'll play Theodora Mircic. She shoudn't have much problems. And Sharon have beaten Magdalena Rybarikova (54th in the world) :worship: She will play Agnes Szavay (14th in the world) next. She might have a shot because Rybarikova defeated Szavay last week. Good luck to both! :yeah:

great effort for Sharon, and a very gutsy performance to win such a nailbiter! Hopefully she's not too tired and will go for it against Szavay :)

Aleksandra's got a pretty reasonable draw but in the juniors you never know who's going to come through on a given week so hopefully Aleksandra is up to the task and will be able to keep up her form for the rest of this tournament :D

Aleksandra Wozniak def Teodora Mircic 6-4 6-3 :banana: :bounce: :woohoo:
Agnes Szavay def Sharon Fichman 6-1 2-6 6-2 :sad:


Strong tourney for Sharon none the less. Great job by Aleksandra, I hope she can keep it going! Wozniak now plays Szavay, the 3rd seed. Hope she can win!

Alekz is playing great great tennis so far this year.

Sharon is very impressive. At 13, to take a set agasint a top 15 is no easy task, esp in the third round of a Grade1!

I see Alekz killing Agnes, at least I hope so. She has a good draw to the final, with Marcio :eek: there in the bottom!

canuckfan
Mar 19th, 2004, 02:21 AM
Nice Job Alekz :worship: If she beats Szavay (wich should be somewhat difficult), she's definitly on her way to the final, probably against Kleybanova. But we shouldn't talk too soon because Alekz and Steph have the bad tendency to lose in the quarters...

Great run Sharon! She should be around 150th in the world next week, wich is very good after only 3 international tournaments. She might be the best 1990 born in the entire world right now :D. And I think she's still alive in doubles. Does anyone has doubles results?

~CANUCK~
Mar 19th, 2004, 03:21 AM
Yup she is in the semis of the doubles, and with the new ranking system thats huge. Sharon is awesome. She was the best 12 year old last year. Now i would say she is the best 13 year old. I so can't wait till she is 15-16 and #1 in the world in juniors.

¤CharlDa¤
Mar 19th, 2004, 04:57 PM
I think you should wait before saying that...We had some great junior talents who turned out todo just nothing (popescu being the best exemple!) and at 13, not all the young girls know all their talent and start to travel around the world....You know steph dubois only started juniors at 16, and she was the best junior last year for Canada and should ahve been in the top 10!

I really hope Sharon becomes one of the best, but it is very early to say that! You know Sesil is only 14 and already wins some indian wells matches!

canuckfan
Mar 19th, 2004, 06:28 PM
I think Sharon is a prodigy by canadan standards, maybe not by world standards. It's the first time that one of our players dominates her age group internationnaly. Marie-Eve, Melanie, Alekz and Beier weren't beating top 50 players and their first few tournaments. Yes Sesil and Alysa are winning WTA matches but I don't think Sharon has the training regiment that these girls have and she probably doesn't have to win at all cost to make sure her brothers and sisters are eating well (wich is the case for some eastern-europeans). And Sesil and Alysa are (with Krajicek and Vaidisova) truly exceptional players who dominate the juniors the same way Hingis, Kournikova and Dokic did.

If she continue like this, Sharon will for sure reach top 10 or maybe top 5. But I don't think it will happen until she's 15 or 16. She'll progress in a canadian way. And the key is really a constant progression because a lot of our players seems to peak too early. For example, Kat Zoricic was really good when she started, giving good fight to top players, but she has not improve as fast as the other players in the last year and now she struggles to stay in the top 100. On the other hand, Stephanis is the best example of a good progression.

It will be interesting to see if Tennis Canada will send to many tournaments this year and if she'll play the Slams. If she does, I see her in the top 50 by the end of the year.

And I think cdpoulin said that she seems to be a good doubles player. I fully agree. She's is doing great in single but she is doing awesome in doubles so far: semi final at the Eddy Herr (G1), winner at the prince cup (G4) and now semi final in her first Grade A. And she did all that without playing with top players. It's great to see a canadian girl having success in doubles because Steph and Alekz are rather inconsistent...

So keep up the good work Sharon! :yeah:

¤CharlDa¤
Mar 19th, 2004, 10:04 PM
Yeah her double skills really seem great! If she is like Hingis, as some people said, it could be good for doubles also! And with the recent cahnge in the rankings, double is finally important lol...

I never saw her play, i can't tell if she got it or not. I saw Steph and Alekz, clearly they have *it*. Steph really impressed me in her match vs Arvidsson, she has such great anticipation! Alekz has great power from every wing and is better mentally than Steph.

I never was impressed by Beier though. I think her game isn't good enough to become a big player in the future, her attitude isn't really that good... I think she got good strategy though. As for Shualeva, i was really disappointed, she ahd reallyn nothing special. Just a good player.

Mar 27th, 2004, 04:36 AM
if she is this good, hopefully she will get to top 10 by the end of the year,
of course not by the way Julia did:) anyways, it's good to be young, but you have to work hard too, too bad we cant train Sharon like the US does to Ashley H etc. or Australia does to Oliva;), and yet the Canadian girls are not starving enough for them to strive for matches, there's gotta be a way to motivate them and nurture them, good luck TC:)

Tetreaul just wn her second title in a row!!! She best Percy in the finals 6-1 6-3 :bounce:

Alekz lost 6-3 6-3 :sad:

But hey it was a great match and Kotkina is in a class of ehr own right now!

Alekz lost both in singles and in doubles to the winning team so that'S pretty good!

I am hoping the Sharon Fichman would get a main draw WC for 25K Vancouver event next year in 2005. She will be 14 years old.

What junior tournaments will she be playing next? Anyone know?

Go Sharon! She looks so promising... it would be great for Canadian fans.. It's been long overdue since Carling Bassett.

Only time will tell :)

Mar 31st, 2004, 06:19 AM
If Sharon Fichman plays at 2004 Canadian U18 ITF Junior World Ranking Event (Grade 5 ITF junior) this mid-July in Vancouver, it will be the first time I will watch her playing.... she didn't go last year. So, I have a great chance to see her. :kiss: :smooch:

~CANUCK~
Mar 31st, 2004, 10:59 PM
My guess would be that sharon would play the italian open as it is a grade A and then some tournies in france to get ready for the french open. But i could be totally wrong.

Apr 13th, 2004, 02:33 AM
Fichman, Zoricic, Shulaeva, Gloria and Rice are all in action this week at the U18 canadien championship. It will be interesting to see how Sharon do after her (bad) loss:tape: to Kotkina in Brazil. She won 60 60 today :) She should meet Shulaeva in the quarters.

Apr 17th, 2004, 07:25 PM

http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forums/images/smilies/cheering.gif Excellent job, Sharon! http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forums/images/smilies/cheering.gif

On the girls’ side, Fichman became only the third 13-year-old to win the Under-18 category after beating Tétreault in straight sets, joining successful WTA players Carling Bassett-Seguso and Helen Kelesi.

“I’m really happy to follow in their footsteps,” said Fichman. “It’s great to know I have a great future. No one expected me to be here at my age, let alone make the finals.”

The youngster battled hard and staved off several set points for Tétreault in the second set.

“I was so nervous at times and starting hitting short balls,” said Fichman. “But I thought I played pretty well in general and just tried to forget about everything else. Valérie played very well, very solid – I guess I just wanted it more.”

In the doubles final, Fichman and Montreal’s Mélanie Gloria came out on top with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Jillian O'Neill of Beaconsfield, Que., and Erika Perez of Oakville, Ont.

Apr 18th, 2004, 12:57 AM
I wouldn't be surprised if Sharon gets a maindraw WC at AT&T Cup in Toronto or at Bell Challenge in Quebec City next year.

Go Sharon! I think her next tournament will be in Canadian U18 Grade 5 ITF, Ace Tennis Academy, Burlington, ON from April 25 - May 01.

~CANUCK~
Apr 18th, 2004, 01:06 AM
I don't see sharon playing a grade 5 anymore, she will prolly play the italian open which is a grade A. The 30 points sharon would get for winning a grade 5 is meaningless to her.

¤CharlDa¤
Apr 18th, 2004, 01:30 AM
I think Sharon can't play on the main tour until she gets 14, so we need to forget about the WCs!

I am a bit surprised that she won though...If either Ko, Dubois and Wozniak would ahve been there she never would ahve won though!

Randy H
Apr 18th, 2004, 11:53 AM
A great achievement for Sharon, so young and already winning the U-18 title :D That's fantastic!

Even though some of the top girls weren't there she still beat Shulaeva who was a G2 finalist several weeks ago, and then beating Tetreault who has also been in very good form coming into the tournament.

Congratulations Sharon!

PS: I really like what she has to say in her quotes, she seems very mature :)

Something odd I noticed..I was just looking at the ift drawsheet and when I clicked on the head to head for Fichman/Juricova it already has this match marked down with Fichman as the winner..though there is no score :scratch:

Are they attempting to predict the future? :p cause they don't have the results of this match up yet to my knowledge.

May 18th, 2004, 11:12 PM
Alekz have a very tough draw: Schoofs, then Havartsova and then maybe Bondarenko. The match against Havartsova could go either way. I think they are same strenght. But Havartsova/Azarenka destroyed Alekz and Valerie Tetreault 61 60 today :awww: ... (But the Belarussians are probably the best junior double team in the world right now)

Sharon has a very good chance to reach the quarters as she meet a wild card in the round of 16.

May 20th, 2004, 09:38 PM
Anyone know anything about Sharon's next opponent? Does she have a chance to get thru to the semi's?

Azarenka is the kind of eastern european player that has all the future of her family on her shoulders, so she'll be hungry (even if it's just a junior event).She lost last week 61 61 against Gabba from Italy in her first match, so Sharon can perhaps beat her also. But if Sharon is really the master moonballer she appeared to be, I'm affraid that Azarenka will be patient and kill her just like Kotkina did in Brazil.

Trent Reznor
May 21st, 2004, 02:49 AM
Did she win by moon balling? I heard she played with power and drop shots this week. Against Kotkina she hit two or three moonballs the entire match. She tried (and failed!) to out hit her. Lots to learn at 13! :) :bounce:

Hawk
May 21st, 2004, 03:01 AM
Sharon's game is a mystery to most of us :confused:
I don't believe any of the canadians have seen her play. One poster said a little while ago that he saw her and she was a moon baller. :scratch:

I think the moon balls may have been a tactic though..I guess we won't know until someone sees her play more than once :p

~CANUCK~
May 21st, 2004, 03:37 AM
Ive heard that she is like a hingis type player but with more power. Like she plays by using her head, but can also smack the ball pretty good also. I have never seen her play, but i really doubt she is just a moonballer

May 26th, 2004, 02:59 PM
Well Dubois is in awfull form and Fichman seems to be injured...
But on the bright side Erik Chvojka defeated the number 4 player in the world in the 2nd round of the Astrid Bowl, and lost 62 60 in the 3rd round... :tape:

What's wrong with Steph? She have not won a match since a defeat to Peer at the australian open? (in juniors and challengers) She was so good a the end of last year...

Here's an article about Sharon Fichman on Canoe.ca. It seems she is a «counter-punching baseliner, but she prides herself on being able to play any style.». And I was suprised to know that she is Romanian/Israelian. She only lived in Canada for 5 years.

Teen phenom serves notice

Canadian tennis is looking for its next star and Mike Ulmer thinks he might have found her

By MIKE ULMER -- Toronto Sun

Sharon Fichman saw it coming.

The lost childhood question usually pops up. It's only a question of when.

"I guess you've heard this one before," I said.

"I get it a lot," she said, graciously.

This fall, Sharon Fichman enters her Grade 9 year at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute.

She is just 13 years old and already has seen much of the world: Italy, Brazil, Germany, the United States.

Sharon Fichman is a tennis prodigy who first picked up a racquet when she was three and won her first tournament at six.

She is also Canada's reigning under-18 indoor girls champ, having won the singles and, with partner Melanie Gloria, the doubles title in April.

Only two other Canadian women have captured the under-18 singles title at 13, Helen Kelesi and Carling Bassett. That's not bad company.

Canadian doubles star Daniel Nestor and Fichman were on hand yesterday to promote the opening of the spanking new Rexall Centre at York University.

The Tennis Masters Canada men's event will serve as the inaugural tournament for the facility, July 24 to Aug. 1.

It shouldn't surprise you that Sharon Fichman's goal is to be a top 10-player.

"That has been my dream for a while," she said. "I'd love to be able to travel and make a living out of tennis."

She practises and trains three hours a day, five or six days a week.

Hers is a family of achievers. Her parents, Julia and Bobby, emigrated from Romania to Israel and then, five years ago, to Canada.

Bobby was a semi-pro tennis player. Now he's a nuclear engineer.

His daughter said she inherited her competitiveness not from her father but from her brother, Thomas.

"We'd play together at the park and we'd have to race each other up the hill and it was important who was the fastest," she said. "It has always been with me, this always wanting to win. Losing was never good enough."

"Some kids enjoy being motivated and competing at a young age. Some don't. Everyone is different."

Fichman's style is a counter-punching baseliner, but she prides herself on being able to play any style.

Her idol is Belgian Justine Henin-Hardenne.

"I've been a fan since she won the U.S. Open last year," Fichman said. "There is just something special about her that is inexplicable. Her will, her mental abilities are what set her apart."

By now you've deduced that Sharon Fichman isn't like other 13-year-olds. She doesn't use the word "like" two or three times a sentence.

The notion that an adult mind is inhabiting a kid's body doesn't wash either. Most adults don't speak as coherently as she does.

All of this brings us back to the kid question.

For every phenom bustling through childhood, there seems to be a 20-year-old lamenting a lost childhood.

Some rebel against it while still in their teens, see: Capriati, Jennifer.

Of course, the notion of a 13-year-old boy who practises his hockey three hours every day doesn't seem quite so off-putting.

It really comes down to happiness. Who would have told Wayne Gretzky to knock off the hockey stuff and be a kid?

Sharon Fichman understands that the question has to be asked. She has given it some thought and decided, all in all, she loves her life.

"What am I missing out in terms of being a kid? Well, there are good things and bad things. I don't get to hang out with friends as much. The good thing is I've made a lot of friends in tennis.

"I know how it feels to be grown up and I think I've learned a lot really fast."

Trent Reznor

Sharon Fichman qualified for her first Jr Grand Slam US Open main draw. :woohoo:

Next year, she can enter pro ITF events and maybe a WC for WTA Canadian tournament (more likely Vancouver).

O’Neill a tremendous prospect
BY MICHAEL PIASETZKI - The Chronicle

Talk to anyone who has been following Canadian amateur tennis over the past several years and his or her eyebrows will immediately rise upon the mention of Jillian O’Neill.

That’s because in no uncertain terms, the 15-year-old Beaconsfield resident who moved to the West Island from Halifax three years ago is one of the country’s brightest prospects on the women’s side. As of last month, she was ranked 17th in Canada and 214th in the world.

Over the past couple of years, the Grade 10 Sport-Études student at John Rennie High School in Pointe Claire has been travelling the globe, not only playing in many of the most prestigious international junior tournaments, but accumulating good results as well. Her latest jaunt was to Key Biscayne, Fla., where she advanced to the semifinal in singles and captured the doubles with partner Jade Curtis of Great Britain at both the U.S.T.A. International Winter Championships and the Orange Bowl International Tennis championships.

“Advancing to the semifinal at the Orange Bowl was not only my most satisfying but probably my biggest accomplishment in tennis so far,” said O’Neill, who started playing tennis at the age of six. “I was able to stay focused, even after dropping the first set 6-0. I came back to win the second and third sets 6-2, 6-2 against a very tough opponent.”

O’Neill said the turning point in her still very young career came after placing third at the 2003 u-14 Junior Federation Cup world championships in Prostejov, Czech Republic. It was the first time Canada had finished in the top 10 in such a prestigious event.

“That tournament made me realize that in order to be a complete tennis player, it takes time, a lot of practice and many competitive matches,” she said.

“Of course, you have to have talent, but it takes a lot of hard work to put everything together. I did have a lot of success at an early age, but the matches are far more competitive now, and you have to be very tough mentally,” she added.

Moving to Beaconsfield from the East Coast was not a very difficult adjustment — mentally or physically — for O’Neill. Not only was she already fluently bilingual from having studied French immersion in Halifax, but also was already familiar with the West Island, having visited with her dad and brother the two previous summers.

The West Island is also where she was introduced to her present coach, Martin Simon, who O’Neill believes is the best technical teacher in the country. Named Coach of the Year by Tennis Canada for 2003, Simon said one of the biggest advantages O’Neill has going for her is size.

“She’s a tall girl,” said Simon, who also coaches Stephanie Dubois, currently one of the top-ranked women’s junior players in Canada.

“Yet very athletic and agile. She also moves extremely well on the court. Her strength though, lies in her ability to play aggressively. Her serve is also good and as she gets older will become a big weapon. All in all, she definitely has a very good international profile at a very young age,” he continued.

Simon must have been in seventh heaven when he heard about O’Neill coming back to win her quarter-final match at the Orange Bowl. That’s because he believes mental toughness is the biggest aspect of her game O’Neill has to work on right now.
In order to do that, she meets on a regular basis with well-known sports psychologist Wayne Halliwell, who has worked in the past with members of the Montreal Canadiens.

“My short term goal for this year is to reach the top 50 in the u-18 world ranking and to play all the junior Grand Slam events,” said O’Neill, who when not practising a minimum of five to six hours a day five days a week enjoys hitting the slopes and doing some skiing.

“My long term objective over the next two years is to improve my world ranking and turn pro.

“The next two years will also give me the opportunity to decided whether I want to attend a United States university on a tennis scholarship,” she added.

Wow, I created this thread more than 5 years ago. It's interesting to see how things really panned out.

Alezk is in the 3rd round at the Banana Bowl. She'll play Theodora Mircic. She shoudn't have much problems. And Sharon have beaten Magdalena Rybarikova (54th in the world) :worship: She will play Agnes Szavay (14th in the world) next. She might have a shot because Rybarikova defeated Szavay last week. Good luck to both! :yeah:

Fichman defeated Rybarikova when she was 13 years old and lost in 3 to Szavay :eek:

Yup she is in the semis of the doubles, and with the new ranking system thats huge. Sharon is awesome. She was the best 12 year old last year. Now i would say she is the best 13 year old. I so can't wait till she is 15-16 and #1 in the world in juniors.

Oh well :shrug:

Alekz lost 6-3 6-3 :sad:

But hey it was a great match and Kotkina is in a class of ehr own right now!

Alekz lost both in singles and in doubles to the winning team so that'S pretty good!

Alekz :bounce: That was a very tough second round, could ahve been a quarter!

CharlDa was still a fan of Wozniak back then :lol:

Ive heard that she (Fichman) is like a hingis type player but with more power. Like she plays by using her head, but can also smack the ball pretty good also. I have never seen her play, but i really doubt she is just a moonballer

:tape: It's not a mystery anymore...

O’Neill a tremendous prospect
BY MICHAEL PIASETZKI - The Chronicle

Talk to anyone who has been following Canadian amateur tennis over the past several years and his or her eyebrows will immediately rise upon the mention of Jillian O’Neill.

That’s because in no uncertain terms, the 15-year-old Beaconsfield resident who moved to the West Island from Halifax three years ago is one of the country’s brightest prospects on the women’s side. As of last month, she was ranked 17th in Canada and 214th in the world.

Over the past couple of years, the Grade 10 Sport-Études student at John Rennie High School in Pointe Claire has been travelling the globe, not only playing in many of the most prestigious international junior tournaments, but accumulating good results as well. Her latest jaunt was to Key Biscayne, Fla., where she advanced to the semifinal in singles and captured the doubles with partner Jade Curtis of Great Britain at both the U.S.T.A. International Winter Championships and the Orange Bowl International Tennis championships.

“Advancing to the semifinal at the Orange Bowl was not only my most satisfying but probably my biggest accomplishment in tennis so far,” said O’Neill, who started playing tennis at the age of six. “I was able to stay focused, even after dropping the first set 6-0. I came back to win the second and third sets 6-2, 6-2 against a very tough opponent.”

There were a lot of bagels given to Canadian girls, about 8 by my count. It's too bad Liang had to play Starr right away, she'd been having a good year. I didn't expect 6-1 6-2 though:crying2:
Petrick is a '97 girl like Abanda, so it's nice to see her winning a G3 match. She won a G5 earlier this year defeating the 3rd, 8th and 1st seeds (the first seed is ranked about 297 in the world). She's ranked about 643. She plays Christina Makarova next round though, who's one of the top '96 girls. She's ranked 45 in the world, so I hope it's a good experience for her.

It's been a great week at the Orange Bowl for Canadians. Erin Routliffe won the 16s singles and doubles titles! Charlotte Petrick was her partner for the doubles.
Carol Zhao made the 18s doubles semis, losing 18-16 in super tie break.
Genie made the 18s singles semifinal, retiring because of the same ab strain that caused her to retire from Eddie Herr.

All in all, a really good week for Canadian juniors!

I agree; these updates are great! I wish the lovemeansnothing.ca website would devote a little more interest to the juniors. A lot of Canadian youngsters are doing great things right now, on both the boys and girls sides. I hope things materialize for them when they transition. A lot of Canadians in the past have done well in juniors and sort of stalled when they went pro - Jeyaseelan, Fichman, Dabrowski, even Bester and Polansky were much more dominant as juniors than now - darn injuries!!! Anyone know about Francoise Abanda's recovery? She's only played one Jr. Fed. cup match since the US open. I was hoping she'd be back for Australia.........

:) thanks. I've been watching for Abanda too, she was on a few of the entry list's and pulled out. I checked her twitter and there was nothing. At least she doesn't have anything to defend for the next few months. As long as she comes back fully healed, I'm happy. Also, I find that the lovemeansnothing.ca is extremely hard to navigate and rarely has any results quickly, so rarely go there.

Well, Zhao's been on a role lately. Last week she lost in the final of a G1 in Thailand and won the doubles. This brought her to #29 in the rankings. She's playing in the final of the 19th Sarawak Chief Minister's Cup (I) vs. Kulichkova, who has been her doubles partner for the last two weeks. GOOD LUCK! They made the semis this week. She won't make much gain from this weeks tourny, as she made the final last year. But really good work, we now have 3 top 30 juniors! Genie will fall to about 6 next week, since she's not defending Gerdau, but it's her last year so it shouldn't matter since she'll still be seeded at slams.

Top 10 Juniors currently: (all in top 500!)
1. Eugenie Bouchard #4
2. Francoise Abanda #21
3. Carol Zhao #29 CHR
4. Erin Routliffe #88
5. Kimberly-Ann Surin #160
6. Gloria Liang #224 (CHR, made QF at G3 last week, made finals of a G4 this week and won doubles. Should go up more to about 200)
7. Marika Akkerman # 256
8. Devin Chypyha #427
9. Wendy Qi-Wen Zhang #465
10. Lauren Chyphyha #491

(Bunea is only born in 1999, that gave me a bit of a shock. It seems so young).

And finally, Kimberly-Ann Surin decided to go to the University of Arkansas. Probably a good choice right now.

Francoise Abanda vs. Carol Zhao for the G1 final! That's very exciting. Abanda defended a huge chunk of her points and Zhao gained quite a bit, no matter who wins. Zhao is in the final with Routliffe as well. Zhao really should get a thread soon, she's been a top junior for quite a while and had a decent pro ranking. Good job to Marika Akkerman, Charlotte Petrick and Alexis Prokopuik for winning a round at a G1 as well! 1998 born Kopcalic reached the quarters in doubles with 1997 born Leduc as well.

Both Marika Akkerman and Kimberely-Ann Surin participated in US Open junior qualies. Was sorta surprised to see Surin there, seems as though she hasn't played in forever.

FQR: Akkerman vs. Valeria Salazar (MEX)(current rank 257, CHR 197) :bounce: Good luck!.

Does anyone know anything about Akkerman? She plays quite a bit and has a pretty good ranking. I don't think she's really associated with Tennis Canada though. I can't even find her in the national rankings. Seems a bit weird.

Congrats to Routliffe for finals in singles and doubles last week! That's very nice for her, especially after her last stretch in singles. She moves to a career high of 33 this week. Only one tournament comes off her ranking before the end of the year, so she has a chance to higher if she plays the end of year tournaments. Petrick is at a career-high of 255. Liang went up 77 places after her QF to Routliffe. Nice to see her winning again!

Okay, it's time for the junior fall swing! :bounce: Let's see how we do.

Week of Nov 19:
Yucatan G1
MD: Abanda

Week of Nov 26:
Eddie Herr G1
MD: Abanda, Routliffe, Zhao
QD: Akkerman
Alt: Chypyha (10), Miller (18)

Bahamas G5
MD: Nicole Bunea
QD: Ormond, Kool, Mirceta

Week of Dec 3:
Orange Bowl GA
MD: Abanda, Zhao, Routliffe
QD: Akkerman
Alt: Chypyha (34)

Petrick pulled out of all three big events, which is too bad. She would've made the main draw in the first and the qualy in the other two. Hopefully she's not injured. Surprised not to see Liang or Prokopuik on any of the entry lists either.

And just for fun, points to defend until the end of the year:
Abanda 0
Zhao 80 singles + 80 doubles = 100
Routliffe 0
Akkerman 0
Chypyha 0

Good luck to all the juniors in the next few weeks!

*edit* Just found Petrick, Liang, Prokopuik on the entry list for Orange Bowl and Eddie Herr 16s, so I guess they'll play there. There's a few other canucks in the q and main draws there too.

Definitely nice to see Liang back and playing well, she lost R32 and QF this week to the #2 seed in three sets. Liang and Prokopuik also made the semifinals in doubles this week!

Congrats to Akkerman, CHR of 80 last week. Would be interesting to see her try some pro events; she hasn't played any at all, which I found a bit shocking. Anyway, she should be able to play qualies at RG and Wimby, I think!

World Junior Team Tennis and Junior Fed Cup Qualifying going on now. See the thread here (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=526770)

Top 2 teams advance

U14: Vanessa Wong, Katherine Sebov, Charlotte Robillard-Millette
U16: Marie-Alexandre Leduc, Rosie Johanson, Teona Velehorschi

I think both teams have a pretty good chance of qualifying. It would be interesting to know how they chose the teams though. I would've thought that Petrick would be on the U16 team, but she rarely seems to play anymore. I think she's only played 2 itf pro qualies since November. I think Abanda is eligible as well, maybe she's injured? Hopefully she'd be able to play in the finals Still a pretty strong team. The US U14 team is very strong (Claire Liu, CiCi Bellis, Michaela Gordon), it'll be interesting to see how we do. Good luck to both teams :D

You never know, she is going to Stanford, which has had Gibbs and Burdette come out of it and go pro. Hopefully she gets to play one or two, then it's pretty decent prep for if she ever does turn pro. And Tomljanovic is a very good win, I saw that draw and honestly didn't think it was very probable for Zhao to win.

Also, Katherine Sebov won her first title last week at a G4 in Vancouver. She, Vanessa Wong and Charlotte Robillard-Millette are representing Canada at a TE U14 event in Germany this week. That must be quite a bit of jet lag, but they've all gotten off to extremely good starts.

Which of these players are more likely to do well in the future.

It's really hard to tell at this age. Probably Sebov right now, but Wong seems to do really well in tournaments and just play less. Robillard-Millette is a bit of a more recent prospect, I think. I know I was following the other two well before her. All three are in various regional Tennis Canada training centers. All three missed the national 18's championships because of junior fed cup, but Wong beat Robillard-Millette in the final of the national 16's. Sebov didn't participate. Interesting trivia fact; they were all born within a week or two of each other in January.

Not sure how the seeding works, but there were multiple seeds of the same number.

Good week for most Canucks last week :). Liang lost a close final but now is almost top 100. Lots of new career highs, its amazing how fast the 1999 girls are shooting up the rankings. Definitely good to see the younger girls coming up, as we lose Routliffe, Zhao and Akkerman at the end of the year.

Prokopuik (277) tied a career high. +74

Beatrice Boisvert, 7 years old from Trois-Rivières in Quebec, is recruited by Tennis Canada for perfection camp taking place on 11 week-ends.

6 years old in this video :eek: I wonder if Eugenie was this good at 6?
eEUkKYrEccs

She is barely higher than the net, but her backhand seems as devastating as her smile. This explains, in part, why Tennis Canada has selected Béatrice Boisvert for its national youth program even if she's barely 7 years old!

As of today, the gifted girl will travel to Montreal to attend the development camps in the company of other young people also selected for the Canadian program over 11 weekends.

"It is quite a feat for Beatrice to have been recruited at such a young age by Tennis Canada," says, with admiration, Anne Veillette, Coordinator of indoor tennis at René-Verrier in Drummondville, where the girl trains since almost three years. "She is very very good. '' She has what it takes to become a great tennis player. Her potential is enormous."

Further more... "She has the tools to stand out. Physically, she is very athletic for her age. She emits a lot of energy. What differentiates her from the other young people her age, however, is her ability to concentrate. She stores information like a sponge and adhere to the instructions given to her. Her progression is therefore very fast. In addition, she's a perfectionist."


Another essential quality of any athlete who respects herself, Béatrice Boisvert has character. "She is feisty, she will fight to get at every ball that is hit in her direction. ''

Little Beatrice will therefore participate in the first of the three sessions of Tennis Canada. "Young people are registered by session because at this age, it is not always easy to maintain interest over a long period. Young people may choose to limit to a single session, without this compromising their commitment to the program of Tennis Canada. They can also attend three sessions if they wish and Tennis Canada chooses to keep them in the program. I believe that this is what will happen in the case of Beatrice."

It was after attending a camp of detection of Tennis Québec the girl from Trois-Rivieres fell into the eye of Tennis Canada. "Tennis Quebec asked the clubs to send their best players to special days to evaluate them.

During these days people from Tennis Canada are also on-site. Assessments to measure the mobility of players, their ease on the sides to move forward or to the back of the court to fetch the balls that are in. There are also coordination exercises, fitness and even tests of assessments on the spatio-temporal perception, including how the youth react on balls hit in height and return it."

Little Beatrice is not yet Eugenie Bouchard, far from it. But if her interest and commitment for tennis continues, who knows what the future holds...

She made it to the semi-finals by taking down yet another seed. She's claimed seeds 6, 9, 16.
Gets the 13th seed in the semi-final.

Collette Lewis wrote an account of Sebov's R2 match on her ZooTennis Blog.

http://tenniskalamazoo.blogspot.ca/2013/10/fritz-keeps-winning-streak-going-sebov.html

Here's an excerpt:

...14-year-old Canadian picked up a dramatic win, with Katherine Sebov saving two match points in her 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(7) victory over Chloe Ouellet-Pizer.

With Ouellet-Pizer serving for the match at 6-5 in the third, Sebov's unforced errors gave Ouellet-Pizer a 40-15 lead. Sebov cracked a return winner to save the first, and Ouellet-Pizer double faulted on the second, with Sebov going on to break to earn a tiebreaker.

"When she had match points, I just thought, screw it, I'm just going to go for it and whatever happens, happens," said Sebov, who beat No. 6 seed Rianna Valdes in Monday's first round. "That's pretty much what pros do. I hit a very good winner and she got intimidated and hit a double fault, so then I had a chance. I kept going, kept playing my game--hitting the ball hard, moving the opponent around--and I think that's how I won."

After one particularly important winner, Sebov shouted "fearless",....

Too bad she lost, I thought she'd have a decent shot it. This should take her up a bit in the rankings, hopefully along with orange bowl and taking the '95 girls out of the rankings she'll be close to top 100.

It's a bit sad the lack of Canadians in the 18's. I can understand Abanda wanting to play ITFs, but I would've really liked to have seen Liang and Leduc play here. On the other hand, in the 14s and 16s Wong and Robillard-Millette are both through to the quarters. Interesting that our top 3 1999 girls all played different age groups lol.

1999 is very impressive so far, I agree. Abanda was so far ahead of all the girls around her age, which is probably why it felt like a draught. She broke the top 10 before Bencic and Konjuh, I think. Too bad she was then injured. Really surprised, but Robillard-Millette is playing orange bowl 14s this week. Even more surprised that she is unseeded (she was seeded 5 in 16s). Should be interesting, a lot of pressure. Good luck to all the Canucks!

Nice, thanks for letting us know! A few years ago she seemed at the forefront of the 1998 girls, but then she just seemed to disappear. Hopefully she can make a nice comeback, it would be good to see her up there with Johanson.

Ya I hope so to, she just started training in January, I expect her to comeback to tournaments in maybe early spring around april/march.

Congrats to Gloria Liang for winning a G1 in the Phillipines this week! Nice to see her back on track. Should take her well into the top 100, probably close to 60!!!

Somewhat exciting week occurred this week at the Canadian juniors G5! Kopcalic was back in action and made the quarters before losing to the 3rd seed. Petrick was also back in juniors singles action, losing in the quarters to 1st seed Broomfield. There was a 13 year old in the semis (Ramasamy) and we will have our first ( I believe ) 2001 girl ranked in Manolescu. Final is defending champion Velehorschi vs. top seeded Broomfield.
