Re: Party Like It's

Yes I'm bored.

Say what you like about the quality of the tournament, but as far as I can see Georgina Axon is the first British 1999 to win an ITF.

Re: Party Like It's

Congrats Georgie! The '99s are a talented bunch, with Mikheeva, Swan and Axon, and others like Lauryn John-Baptiste, Ellie-Rose Griffiths and Jodie Burrage right behind them.

Re: Party Like It's

Tempus fugit.

Katie is on the entry list for a 10K. (It's a 128 Q draw, so she'll certainly get in if she doesn't withdraw.)

Re: Party Like It's

Draw is out and looks like Katie was a no-show, so 1999 starts pro tennis not with a triumph but a large fine.

Revenge! http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/pla...yer2=100217977

Katie's partnering with Altick in doubles evidently had the desired psychological effect.

Re: Party Like It's

After the class of '98 came oh so close to winning the world champs last year (just as the '94s did), it's the turn of the '99s. Mikheeva, Burrage and Axon take up the mantle. They've progressed through the first phase: http://te.tournamentsoftware.com/spo...E13&d=20130701

Re: Party Like It's

Two lost matches since the last update. So no chance of emulating class of '98 and winning the summer cup, but after today's win, IIUC, they face Italy again and the winner qualifies for the worlds: http://te.tournamentsoftware.com/spo...87A&d=20130706

Re: Party Like It's

All over. Even a (tactical?) switch in the line-up not enough to make any impact on the Italians on their home surface.

1999 < 1998?

EDIT: I was dead wrong about qualification, BTW, and here's why: http://www.itftennis.com/151260

Re: Party Like It's

For the JTC watchers(*) amongst you, it looks like Axon has joined, either that or Cav has left.

Interestingly, or more likely not, Axon was working with another of Cav's former coaches, Rob Smith, earlier in the year.

FWIW, she won her singles today.

(*) You know, Felgate's operation, the one with Vekic. What do you mean, you've never heard of it and even if you had you wouldn't be watching it?

Axon making her pro debut tomorrow at the Loughborough 25K, against the notorious Karen Barbat.

Re: Party Like It's

Georgie was double-bagelled. Won 18 points to her opponent's 30 on serve, so was unlucky not to win a single game.

Re: Party Like It's

Katie is playing a grade 4 in Texas this week, and, as the 9th seed, has won her first two rounds.
On the subject of Katie, does anyone know why her family relocated to the USA? The obvious guess is that they moved to further her tennis career, but I see she's based in Wichita, Kansas, hardly a hot bed of tennis.

Katie has her own thread; you made it.

I realised she was US-based, but I hadn't worked out she was in Wichita! I agree with you, if tennis was a consideration, you'd stay in Bristol (was it?). Must be something else, surely.
