Re: The Danes are coming - Danish juniors thread

Danish Junior Championships, outdoors 2012, will begin Monday 9th of July (qualies beginning today).

Preview

U12
The two big favourites are Helena Francati and Rebekka Hillingsøe, both from Gentofte. Helena won the indoors title back in April when Rebekka didn't participate.

U14
Simone Alipieva would surely have won this, but she's not participating this year (playing Tennis Europe in France instead). Emilie Håkansson and Ida Krause are the favourites, with Håkansson as the most likely winner. They were doing surprisingly well at the European Team Championships a week ago. Helena Steenberg is a likely semifinalist, while Sofie Bjerringgaard could be Ida's opponent in the QF (what a clash: Sofie beat Ida at the junior championships a year ago!).

U16
Martine Ditlev is missing (ITF in Germany), but all the others are here: Emma Rønholt, Julie Noe, Emilie Francati & Ulrikke Høyer. These four girls are seeded 1-4 so the SF's should be Emma Rønholt vs Ulrikke Høyer, and Emilie Francati vs Julie Noe according to the draw. Emma is on fire at the moment and is seeded #1! But these girls can all beat eachother on a good day, so it'll be interesting. Francati won the indoor championship in April, beating Noe in the final. Kathrine Berge is a dark horse in Ulrikke's quarter. She and Ulrikke played a close match in Kronborg Open a few days ago (Ulrikke won 64 64).

U18
Melsted is a huge favourite. Malene Stripp will probably be runner up. Anna Signe Rasmussen is not on the entry list for unknown reasons.

The Championships will be held at HIK (Hellerup). They've made a facebook page for the event. HIK also arranged the outoor Championships in 2010 & 2008, and are usually very good at uploading photos from the matches and ceremonies.
