Draw and Opening Ceremony


Monday 11 August 2003


The 13th World Junior Tennis Finals got off to an exciting start with the Opening Ceremony featuring three world champion parachutists landing in spectacular fashion onto the centre court of the beautiful TK Plus Tennis Club on Monday 11th August. This daring entrance marked the beginning of the weeklong event which runs from 11th to 16th August 2003. Sponsored by Ceska Sporitelna and Cesky Telecom the Finals are hosted by TK Plus, Prostejov in the Czech Republic for the fifth consecutive year and 32 teams from 26 nations will participate in the ITF junior team competition for boys and girls aged 14 and under. A total of 74 nations fought through tough regional qualifying rounds held earlier in the year in Africa, Asia/Oceania, Europe, North/Central America and Caribbean and South America. All 32 teams were present for the exciting draw for the competition which was made on Sunday (last night) by Stephane Cretois, ITF Gold Badge Referee, assisted by Mr Vlastimil Michlicek, from joint sponsor Ceska Sporitelna. Mr Luca Santilli, Manager, Juniors & Vets Tennis, ITF, commented on the draw: “The competition should be very exciting as the standard of all of the players is very high this year and so we eagerly await some close ties throughout the week.” In the boys’ competition, defending champions USA, seeded number 1, are hoping to return home once again with the silverware but will first have to overcome fierce challenges, particularly from the Czech Republic and Croatia. Meanwhile, the girls’ event promises to provide some very exciting tennis, featuring some particularly successful teams. There are high expectations for the number one seeds Russia who have a very strong line up this year and will be hoping to return home with the trophy that they last held aloft in 2000. The Czech Republic team led by Nicole Vaidisova (currently no 39 on the ITF ranking) will try very hard to ensure that the trophy remains on Czech soil. Another strong contender Is Romania, whose number one player, Raluca Olaru, recently won the Under 14 European Individual Championships held in Vichy, France. Daily reports and on-site photos will be available at www.itfjuniors.com from 11th August 2003.

When Russia won in 2000 the -14 y.o. Douchevina and Chemarda, were they first choices above Masha, or didn't send they Masha K.? Can't imagine Chemarda higher ranked than Masha K.

she hasn't made progress, Irina Kotkina was also part of that trio
some progress faster than others

Not sure why Maria K wasn't in that team, she was pretty tiny back in 2000.

Temperatures reach the high 30's on Day 2

In the girls’ competition, despite battling hard, the Kiwi team lost in straight sets to the USA who took the tie 3-0. Logan Hansen (USA), who was a semi finalist at Les Petis As, succeeded in breaking the concentration of Brittany Tee in the first rubber. Following their earlier win, the American girls seemed to have victory in their sights and were not willing to accept anything less, winning the second match 63 61.

No 1 seeds Russia, who can boast that they haven’t conceded a single set in the first two days of the competition, won their first match as expected and looked very confident opposite the Uruguay girls with Regina Kulikova scoring an emphatic victory over Agustina Ferrari, 60 61. The Uruguay team conceded the second and third rubbers allowing Russia to take the tie 3-0.

Morocco failed to came through a tough tie against Australia, seeded 6, with Michelle Brycki (AUS) overcoming Majdouline Akrate (MAR) in the first rubber 62 63. The Aussies clinched the tie 2-1 as the doubles match ended in a tense three set thriller, with the Tyra Calderwood/Brycki duo winning the match 36 64 61.

There was great excitement over on court number six as the teams from Romania (5) and Poland (unseeded) did battle in the late afternoon sun. The tie was finally decided in the third and final rubber with the pairing of Raluca Olaru and Alexandra Dulgheru defeating the Polish Radwanska sisters 64 64. However, this came after two hard fought singles rubbers with Olaru refusing to give an inch in the first singles match, producing a series of powerful serves which eventually led to a 63 64 victory, despite the determined efforts of Agnieszka Radwanska.

Elsewhere, the Czech Republic looked determined to wrap up proceedings against Bolivia as swiftly as possible and are yet to concede a rubber in this year’s competition. Sona Novakova cruised to a 62 60 victory over Jessica Aguilera in the first singles rubber, whilst team mate Nicole Vaidisova, (number 39 on the ITF junior ranking), also won in straight sets 62 63 in the second match.

Despite the blistering heat that made conditions difficult, the Brazilian team stormed through their second round-robin tie in a straight sets victory against the Thai girls. Whilst Canadian Erika Perez claimed the first singles rubber with a comfortable win over Croatian No 2, Maja Sujica, 62 61. In the doubles, Canada rounded off a string of good results and took the tie 3-0.

More upset over on court three as No 8 seeds, Italy, struggled against the unseeded Japanese team who claimed victory in the second rubber with Ayumi Morita coming up with some great shots to win 75 62. There was a tense atmosphere on court as the doubles pairings of Emiko Ito/Morita (JAP) and Astrid Besser/ Corinna Dentoni (ITA) fought hard to win the tie in a three set thriller, resulting in a 36 64 61 win for Japan.

Looking to tomorrow, the deciding matches in each group will mean some exciting battles ahead and will no doubt make for some intense and spirited play.

Brazil Girls (7) defeat No 2 seeds USA on Day 3 of the Finals


Wednesday 13 August 2003


The third and final day of the round-robin matches were completed today with some of the most exciting tennis of this week’s Finals.

In the girls’ event three of the top four seeds progressed through to the final rounds with little difficulty, except for the shock defeat of No 2 seeds USA by Brazil (7). The Brazilian team, spurred on by the support of the predominantly Latin American crowd, were determined to claim victory over the USA and take the final deciding rubber. After two hours of thrilling tennis, play went to a third and all-important rubber as the pairs fought it out in the fierce heat of the late afternoon sun.

The tension mounted on centre court with the girls playing for every point in a gripping match which could have gone either way as each team refused to give an inch. In the second set, Logan Hansen (USA) missed an overhead shot fired out by her Brazilian adversary and allowed Brazil to clinch the game. This broke Hansen’s concentration as she went on to hit the net a number of times during the final set, much to the delight of Ana Clara Duarte and Roxane Vaisemberg. This triggered a downward spiral for the USA team whose spirit was eventually broken and resulted in victory for the Brazilian girls, winning the tie 2-1.

A delighted Brazilian coach, Roberta Burzagli, commented: “We knew it was going to be a tough tie but we held out for victory and came up trumps at the last moment.”

Over on court number four, Japan repeated their second day success with a 3-0 win over Uruguay, while New Zealand recovered from the unequivocal loss of their first singles match with a 62 64 win for Ellen Barry against Ratchaya Chaichanachaicharn of Thailand. The Kiwis proceeded to win the deciding doubles match and, despite a tough battle, defeated their opponents 57 75 64 and took the tie 2-1.

The Italian team fell to formidable opposition in the form of the Russians who won the tie 3-0. Meanwhile, the Moroccan girls although putting in a solid performance eventually fell at the hands of the strong Croatian team 3-0. Bolivia also found themselves defeated by the consistent Polish team who took the tie comfortably 3-0.

No 5 seeds Romania were defiant in the first two sets of their tie. However, they faced harsh opposition from the home side who have an impressive record in this competition, finishing in the top five places every year since 1998. In the final rubber, the Czechs, Eva Kadlecova and Nicole Vaidisova, won 64 61 making this their second consecutive win.

Elsewhere, Australia made the initial break with their No 2 player, Michelle Brycki, taking the first singles rubber 63 26 62. Canada looked to No 1 player, Sharon Fichman, to try and level the tie in the second singles. Fichman, the new winner of the Young Champions Cup in Belgium, won the second rubber of the tie 62 75. With the tie now level at one all, it was down to the two doubles pairings to fight it out but the Canadian team proved to be the stronger, clinching the rubber 62 62 and taking the tie 2-1.
