Juniors

It seems we could do with a thread to cover junior tennis for those girls who don't (yet) have their own threads and for team events. My year by year strategy isn't cutting the mustard, so here's an all-embracing thread.

The title name is up for grabs...

p.s. Of course you shouldn't feel that all junior tennis should be shoehorned into this thread. Don't hesitate to make new threads for junior Wimbledon or the junior nationals.

Re: Juniors

Qualifying match against Holland tomorrow.

The European Summer Cup is also the European qualifying event for the junior Fed Cup.

Re: Juniors

Indi Spink, Holly Fischer and Emma Raducanu formed the GB team that travelled to Latvia and qualified for the finals of the 12U Europe Nations Challenge. The finals start in a week's time in Ajaccio (FRA).

Re: Green Strawberries: the British Juniors thread

Finally an appropriate thread for the youngsters! We have two good teams in our 16U (although Lumsden had a strange loss today) and 12U teams.

Re: Juniors

Katie goes 3/3 in singles, but Maia loses again and France take the seeding with a win in the doubles.

Weather has been poor here in NE England today; maybe they had to move indoors at some point.

Re: Juniors

16U finals draw: http://te.tournamentsoftware.com/spo...93A0DD9&draw=1

If you don't have faith in our ability to win this thing without Gabi, then there's another goal, qualification for the junior Fed Cup finals in Mexico at the end of September. Unless I've misread the ITF site, the top 6 qualifiy, so a win over top seeds Hungary on their home dirt or over, presumably, Belarus in the back draw, is required.

Re: Juniors

Katie crocked in 1st match of the vital play-off versus Slovakia. I don't see us coming back from this. Cancel those Mexico flight bookings.

Re: Juniors

Our 12U team competes in the final round tomorrow and has been drawn in a group with Russia, Belgium, and Poland. The top two teams in the group make it to the playoff rounds. I'm cautiously optimistic they can come through.

I'm not sure it worked like that. Looks like there's only one play-off round, and we're playing the Czech Republic for 5th place tomorrow. Indi scored 3/3 in singles in the group, but discounting the match against Belgium, no other points were scored.

EDIT: 5th place it is, then.

Re: Green Strawberries: the British Juniors thread

What is this some sort of photo shoot for the emerging tennis pop group coordinated and masterminded by Judy Murray.

The livescores can be found here. http://www.protennislive.com/lshd/ma...ww.ctopen.org/

Gabi won her match against Caroline Dolehide 6-3 7-5.
Freya served for the match against Kayla Day but was broken and went on to lose that set. Into a decider and is up a break. *2-1
