Week 4, next week we have players in Cairo, Nairobi, Singapore, Costa Rica. At J4 and J5 level.

Exactly really? Is this considered essential travel? These are junior tennis players, not on elite programmes and are not professional players for whom it is their job. 

sends the wrong message out during this pandemic. Is the travel for potentially easier tournaments worth the health risk. Some obviously think it must be.

 the rankings for 2021 are becoming meaningless with so many players unable or unwilling to travel. Also a grade 4 in some countries listed here recently   considerably easier than Cat 5 in other European countries. with players in countries where theyve done back to back events for several weeks climbing high up the tables. 

the junior ITF tour should be cancelled to discourage junior players travelling all over the world bringing risks to themselves and others.

Agreed. And Ive just realised 128 are heading to AO, presumably this week, for the slams. Jeeps
