Other events, 2021 - week 15


It's a J3 this week in Tunisia.

And the majority of the girls seem to have decamped, leaving the two lads alone. 

Sofia Johnson had withdrawn but changed her mind, stayed on and got a WC into qualis. Won two matches but unfortunately lost the FQR to the top Q seed.

However, Roan Jones came through qualis nicely and joins Will Jansen in the main draw. 

 

In Mexico, J4, however, the Paskauskas girls have turned up. Gabia lost in her first QR1 match by 8-10 in the MTB.

But Kristina is in the MD, as is Given Roach.

Interesting to see some still travelling overseas to compete whilst others restricted. last weekend saw lots of the top juniors competing at nottingham or aldershot in the 18u national youth series including national academy players from Loughborough and stirling playing at notts rather than travelling Overseas. I Didnt see this reported on any of these streams.

 Why don't you report them? If you have an interest in these matters and believe that the rest of us should know about it please share your knowledge.

 Hi Tennisdad_101

I think most of us would be interested to read this type of news but most of don't have access or knowledge at that level to be able to talk about it - I for one don't know anything about Juniors play below the ITF level events and that tends to be what gets reported here as the results and rankings etc are readily available on the ITF site and therefore easily reportable. 

At the national or lower level, it takes someone  with real insight to be able to inform us all and most of us do enjoy reading it...it is similar with other areas such as the British Tour for the mens and womens players, where TA takes a real interest and one or two others, and report here. Or the Wheelchair events, where I know very little but have started to take an interest and report what I see going on in the ITF Tour. 

For Juniors, DavidC and CD tend to post quite a lot of information that many of us readily read and enjoy, but it tends to be focused on the ITF level events and any depth or insight others have at a national or LTA level, county level, I am sure we would all love to have someone (you?!) post news about?

hopefully these links work. 16 player draws in notts & aldershot. I believe the aim was to give 2 competitive matches at both So the draws were not random.  Unfortunately aldershot only played one match due to the weather. 

some interesting results - phoenix weir doing very well to win vs Sam Reeve from Stirling.

no academy players in aldershot must be due to distance from training. 

some notable names absent could be injury or travel But really Positive to see the juniors back competing again.

 Thanks tennisdad - so it looks like they didnt play through to winners and that the draws tried to group similar standard players together? 

Didnt you post (or I read somewhere) that an actual Nationals event is coming up soon at the NTC, is that correct?

Thanks for that, TennisDad.

Enjoyed looking through the results.

I've watched Sam Reeve a couple of times on Livestream (at age 12 or so, and on Les Petits As stream), and remember him being a tall lad, with a decent serve but not too dynamic (as tall kids often aren't). Glad he's doing well. Never seen Phoenix but his name has come up in the juniors section here a few time (or maybe the name just jumps out - Phoenix is quite a name )

Glad that Mingge is doing well (she and Hep are often put together, although I've always been a far bigger fan of Hep - but great that Mingge is getting match time). Interesting, though, that she thrashed Hannan Read, who has a nice game.

As Jon says, please post links and little bits of feedback about national events, if you have time and the inclination.

Everyone who likes junior tennis will be very interested - I never post about them unless I happen to attend them (which I always tried to but only local ones and not in the past year, of course). But it's not out of disinterest, just there's not time in the day to do everything, and it's quite specialist.

PS By the way, Tennisdad, be warned - if you're watching and following these events, Jon will soon be on your case for a nomination for Player of the Month

I don't know of any nationals coming up at the NTC as yet, there is another National Youth Series taking place on the 26th. Similar players entered.

Yes I think they tried to group similar players together, was a one day event. Looks like at Notts they played the Loughborough academy vs the Stirling academy in the girls only 2 Loughborough girls played with Ella McDonald beating ranah Stoiber in a tight 3 set match and Mimi Xui beating Hannah Read 2&0. In the boys Henry Searle beating Kai Luca Ampaw again in a tight 3 set match, Luca Pow losing to Matt rankin in 2 short sets - assuming due to the weather.

In Aldershott was a shame only one match but really good to see competition back in the UK regardless.
