The U16 SF battle between Emma Rønholt and Simone Alipieva was just as close as expected. I feel a bit sorry for Simone. She's had such a tough time since her amazing run in 2011, when she was one of the World's top ranked players. Still a good performance by Simone in such a close match. And very well done by Emma. I still think Emilie Francati is a huge favourite in the final. She defeated Emma easily in an ITF final in Norway some weeks ago. But Emma has defeated Emilie before, so I hope this final will be a bit closer than their last meeting.
Big upset by Rebekka Hillingsø in U14. She's good, but it's quite rare in Danish junior tennis to see unranked players beat top ranked players. Well done. Hannah Viller Møller (U12) still impresses me a lot.
