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

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: 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

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.

What is the tournament? I noticed the scores when I was looking for the WTA tournament scores. Freya won 6-2 in the third. Maia lost a bagel first set, but is up 2-0 in the second.

Maureen Connolly Trophy, a match between British and American girls. In recent years it's been annual, taking place during either Eastborne or New Haven.

Green Strawberries! :lol: Love it!

Great day for 3 out of 4 today. Lumsden seemed to be the most promising of the bunch a few years back but she's definitely been overtaken. Hopefully that'll only motivate her.

To be honest, after watching her play against Michaela Gordon at Wimbledon, I was a little underwhelmed. She was easily overpowered, but when she had time on the forehand it was quite good. The serve is a major weakness. I know she's only 16, but she's got such a slight frame, even for her age. If she gets stronger I'd like a chance to see her play again.
