Now I am confused

I thought when the Belgian girls De Sutter, Benoit and Liebens won the U14 European Winter Cup this year it was only the 2nd time Belgium had won after 1996 with Kim & Justine.
But they won in 2008 with Mestach & Bonaventura as well? Or what competition was this?

Beligium definitely has some nice junior players now. I think a big part is how the number of kids starting to play tennis increased a lot suring 2001 to 2005 when Kim & Justine were at the top. Of course the more kids that start the greater the chance 1 or 2 will go far. I think in Yanina they have a good leader as well, she has shown what hard work can bring. Of course though it is far too early to tell how these girls will go. But I am definitely going to follow some of them to see

Re: The Juniors thread

Hello Tully,

Yes, it is a bit confusing but there is a logic to it.
In 2008, Belgium won the Qualifying Round (1 of 4: Minsk, Rakovnik, Stuttgart and Istanbul) in Stuttgart. The results above are the results of that qualifying event. The finalists of the 4 qualifying events played the week later the finals in Leeuwarden. Russia on that year.
Now...the "strongest" highest ranked player - Mestach - got foodpoisoning in Stuttgart...and was unable to participate in the finals. You can see this when looking at the participants in the finals.It's quite normal that when a country can not have it's number one player playing, it is close to impossible to win the final round of the Winter Cup. Justine De Sutter replaced An-Sophie Mestach in the finals and Belgium lost the 1st day against Slovenia.

This year Belgium won the qualifying against Germany and the finals against Russia. A very good result indeed. And it had been since 1996 that Belgium won.

Also... Belgium ended 4th last year in the World Championship in the Czech republic, best result ever...
The players were the same names: Mestach, Bonaventure, Lemmens.
The Summer Cup is also called the Europa Cup and is the European preliminary for the World championships.

Hope this helps a bit.
