Re: The Juniors

Layne Sleeth is the only Canadian at the Grade A Trofeo Bonfiglio

Bianca would have played but withdrew since she will be busy at the RG qualies this coming week. It's not great though to play RG without a warmup event. She hasn't played a match since Fed Cup one month ago

Why is Branstine not in Italy? She would have been seed #4.
I wonder if it's a question of money. Branstine is definitely not traveling as much as Sleeth who's parents are wealthy.

Re: The Juniors

OK guys,
It's time to keep an eye on the very tall 15yo Natasha SENGPHRACHANH

She is playing at a G4 now because it's only her 3rd ITF Junior event. But she won almost everything inside the Tennis Canada ranking tournaments in the past 12 to 18 months.

She won 3 matches this week in Plantation by double bageling her 3 opponents
Watch out for her jr. ITF.
Round 3 next against seed #2.

Great fight from 15yo Leylah Annie Fernandez in $25,000 Naples
She lost like Charlotte in the last round of qualies, but hey, Leylah was playing against a very good young player, Michaela Gordon who is 3 years older.
6-7(2) 6-0 3-6

I'm pretty sure Leylah has a good future in tennis ahead of her.

MELBOURNE - Carson Branstine is a junior player currently in limbo as she awaits changing her playing country affiliation from the USA to Canada.

Once the 13th-seeded Branstine is on the court, however, the main concern is winning. And winning is just what she did against Lin Baijing of Australia when she put together a hard fought 75 46 63 second round win at the Australian Open on Tuesday.

Branstine is a native of Southern California where her Canadian mom, Carol, and American father, Bruce, live. But recently Branstine decided she would prefer to play under the Maple Leaf flag instead of the Stars and Stripes.

At the moment, the paperwork hasn’t been completed, but she’s already settled into the Canadian National Training Center in Montreal where she is living with a host family.

“I will be changing to Canada and it will be soon,” Branstine said. “Honestly, I think it was a better fit for my tennis. I really love the training there and the people. It’s a little bit smaller than the USA.

“My French is not so good yet, but I will learn, I’m trying to,” Branstine added. “It’s cold. I went from SoCal where it’s been hot and dry, to Montreal where in wintertime it’s so cold. It’s like -20 with blizzard snow. But I like it, it’s a good change.”

“I’m staying in a beautiful home and they’re treating me like gold,” she added, of her new home situation.

This was only the second Grand Slam tournament of Branstine’s junior career. She reached the singles quarterfinals at last year’s U.S. Open.

Branstine required two-minutes over the two-hour mark to record the win over Lin. In total, there were 26 break points chances in the match with Branstine breaking serve on five of 18 opportunities presented. She also posted 42 winners, but that was countered by 58 unforced errors.

"It wasn’t easy today,” Branstine said. “She’s a friend of mine and she was hitting some nice shots, but I figured it out at the end.

“I just love Australia,” she added, of her first visit. “This has been an amazing experience and I don’t want it to end yet.”
