Boys & Girls: 2019 Tennis Europe Winter Cups (U12/U14/U16)


Correct me if I'm wrong, but the little curly-haired boy on the left as we look at it is Hugo Coquelin, the tall boy on the right (also with curly hair but shorter) is Fabio Nestola, and the boy in the middle is Luca Pow, yes????

 Yes - I don't know the two others though (one must be Richard Plews I assume)

Great start for both teams, advancing to the semis. The boys were imperious against Belgium and now tackle Italy. The girls have the tough prospect of Russia in the semis, who are yet to drop a set in qualifying or today (most of their sets have been bakery products)

GBR 3 Belgium 0

Samy Khediry won 6-0 6-2
Benjamin Gusic Wan won 6-2 6-0
Bonding/Gusic Wan won 6-2 6-0

U12 Girls QF

GBR 2 Romania 1

Mingge Xu won 6-2 6-4
Hephzibah Oluwadare won 6-2 6-3
Harper/Xu lost 5-7 3-6

Two hard fought matches, but neither in our favour (the girls being tantalisingly close to a big win following two singles lasting close to 3 hours), so both teams play for bronze tomorrow. The boys play Romania and the girls France

Italy 2 GBR 1

Samy Khediry lost 3-6 7-5 4-6
Benjamin Gusic Wan lost 4-6 5-7
Bonding/Gusic Wan won 6-4 6-4

U12 Girls SF

Russia 2 GBR 1

Mingge Xu won 6-3 6-7(4) 6-4
Hephzibah Oluwadare lost 6-3 2-6 6-7(5)

That's a very encouraging result for the girls. Shame Hephzibah couldn't sneak that win.

Bronze medals for both under 12 teams, as they each lead 2-0 after the singles. Czech Republic won the boys title and Russia the girls (much easier match than against GB)

I've seen and am a mega fan of Hephzibah - really good prospect. Very exciting.

Never seen the other U12s

The under 14 finals start tomorrow with both teams facing tricky quarter-finals. The girls face the Czech Republic, who have home advantage, while the boys take on France led by Antoine Ghibaudo, who beat both the top Brits last month

Both challenges proved too much though the boys came very close, with Luca reversing his Bolton defeat. Both teams therefore will play for the minor places

The boys finished fifth after two comfortable wins (over Switzerland and Germany) whilst the girls finished 7th after defeat by Romania and a victory over Belarus. Encouragingly for the boys France went on to win the trophy easily, so they would probably have been medalists anywhere else in the draw. Russia won the girls event, beating GB's conquerors in the final - the fifth time Russia has made the final at least in the last six years
