Junior WImbly runner-up Jack Draper is playing this week (week 31) in the main draw in Belgium, as a wildcard.

Young George Loffhagen, also born 2001, is into the main draw and seeded 7th in Finland too.

Jack gets the second seed while George gets a wildcard - the luck of the draw......

Week 31 proved to be a prolific week for juniors stepping up to play senior tennis:
Sasha Hill (17) made a fantastic debut reaching the Final and still going !!! of a 15 k and created a career high win beating a player just outside the top 600 which may take some beating! However she will now have the opportunity in the final!

Week 31 - ITF ($15K) - Dublin, Ireland Carpet

R1: HILL, Sasha (GBR) UNR def HOSTE FERRER (ESP) 2 628 4-6 6-4 6-4

R2: HILL, Sasha (GBR) UNR def PIPA, Shaline-Doreen (GER) 1107 6-4, 6-3

QF: HILL, Sasha (GBR) UNR def MALMQVIST, Linnea (SWE) 5 866 4-6, 7-5, 6-2

SF: HILL, Sasha (GBR) UNR (JCH 377) beat ROBBE, Alice (FRA) UNR 18yo JCH=608 6-3, 7-6(4)

F:   HILL, Sasha (GBR) UNR lost to APPLETON, Emily 1 (GBR) 613 4-6, 3-6



Fran made excellent progress in the Woking 25K knocking out the top seed and a top 300 player in the first round but loosing in R2 to a resurgent Freya. I think a bit of familiarity and a determination not to loose to a younger Brit may have helped Freya to focus in what was a hard fought R2 battle.

Week 31 - ITF ($25K) - Woking, GBR Hard

Q1: LINDH GALLAGHER, Emilie (GBR) beat v DISSANAYAKE, Tanysha (GBR) UNR

Q1: PITAK, Aleksandra (GBR) UNR beat ANEY, Jessie (USA) 12 1216 6-1, 6-1

Q1: ELLIOT, Olivia (GBR) UNR lost to PALADINA  JENNINGS, Martina (GBR) UNR 4-6, 4-6.

Q1: SONNEKUS WILLIAMS, Olivia (GBR) UNR lost to ARBUTHNOT, Emily (GBR) 731 6-1, 6-1


Q2: LINDH GALLAGHER, Emilie (GBR) UNR lost to KENNEL, Karin (SUI) 3 533 CH=409 2014 4-6, 1-6

Q2: PITAK, Aleksandra (GBR) UNR lost to VRLJIC, Ana (CRO) 6 653 CH=180 2013 0-6, 1-6

Q2: PALADINA JENNINGS, Olivia (GBR) UNR lost to BRONZETTI, Lucia (ITA) 554 0-6, 1-6

 

R1: JONES, Francesca (GBR) WC 509 def MARCINKEVICA, Diana (LAT) 7 278 6-4 7-6(3)

R2: CHRISTIE, Freya (GBR) WC 562 def JONES, Francesca (GBR) WC 509 6-7(2) 7-6(3) 2-6

Don't know quite why you've only put those three from the Woking qualis - are you just putting those who get a win? If so, you've missed Martina.
But seems a little unfair as the others are 'juniors playing professional tennis' too, even if they lost in QR1 (and it was a 25k).
The others (and well done to them for having a go) include:

Eloise Saraty, Olivia Elliott, Martina Paladini Jennings (who got a win in QR1 and lost in QR2) and Olivia Sonnekus Williams

Assume you're putting up the boys separately?

Apologies to the girls I missed it was unintentional and early on a Saturday morning.

CD by all means add anything I miss, that would be the emotionally intelligent think to do it is quite an undertaking and by all means feel free to put the boys up separately. If you havent I will do later I need a bit of breakfast!

Anyone got any news on how Jack is following his retirement and then withdrawal from the Serbia 15K? Hope he's ok.

Generally I worry a little that some of our juniors for all the right reasons get opportunities that they are desperate to take and play on when injured perhaps not even being completely honest with their coaches. As a consequence they do enough damage to have to stop playing. Generally I am not a big fan of playing through injuries until physical maturity. There is no net gain in doing so.

Yes. As stated before, one of the top LTA coaches actually asked Emma Rad at the Bank of England club how her tendonitis was, Emma said 'all right ish, not too bad' or something like that and he said 'yes, well, absolutely everyone has a bit of tendonitis, it's normal'.....

Now, maybe he was trying to reassure her because she was about to play a match but, frankly, I thought it pretty cavalier.

As you say, playing through pain for juniors just leads to problems.

(Not saying that this necessarily applies to Emma, by the way, no idea, she might be fine and just taking a long holiday/training or whatever......)

 Thank CD. I hadn't realised that she had tendonitis as I've only really been following her since the FO, and hadn't thought to look at the junior threads to get info.

That makes sense, I agree that there's time enough to not play tournies and concentrate on getting your game and body to be the best they can within your limitations. I do believe she's a great prospect for the future though, and I love her work ethic.
