Boys : Les Petits As - ETA 14 and Under Category 1 - 2007.


14 and under tennis doesn't get bigger than this.

The British players taking part will be Andrew Bettles, Liam Broady, Connor Glennon, Oliver Golding, Georges Morgan and Michael Watkins.

British players have had quite a bit of success out here, with Matt Smith winning the title in 1998, Andy Murray reaching the finals in 2001 and Dan Cox reaching the finals in 2004.
I'd receive a pleasant shock if anyone of our present players went to the latter stages, but at least they should be able to win a few rounds.


All the player names are available out here:

Carlos Boluda will attempt to defend his title. Defending a major 14 and under title is one of the dumbest things a player can attempt. Why not simply move on to the next level?



Just in case anyone is interested, the former winners and finalists can be found out here:

They omitted Dan and put Vladimir Ignatic for some reason.

Maybe it clashed with an acting job.

Thanks a lot, Sally.

Shame about Liam, but he'll have another chance.

Golding got thrashed 0 and 2 by the fourth seed.
Bettles had a good win against a player ranked 41 - 61 63.
Morgan gave the second seed a great match - 62 57 36. Shame that he won't get anything for this effort...
