Boys & Girls; U14 Super Category, Les Petits As, Tarbes, France, indoor hard (Week 36)


Five SPs for Max - but he couldn't take them - and the US boy has taken the first set TB ::((

But Max is playing some very nice tennis, with his lefty inside out forehand (the other kid is left-handed too - unusual to have both of them....)

Maximilian will not be happy after losing the first set 7-6(6) after having 6 setpoints in total at 5-4 and 6-5, two with glaring misses

The second set was a much briefer affair. That just leaves Hannah who keeps her unbeaten run in TE under 14 events going (14 or 15) and will be third on Centre tomorrow, attempting to match Laura Robson and Liam Broady as our last finalists (2008)

Boys QF

Matisse Farzam (USA) d. (Q) Maximilian Carrier 7-6(6) 6-1

Girls QF

(7) Mathilde Ngijol Carre (FRA) d. Hephzibah Oluwadare 3-6 6-1 64
(WC) Hannah Klugman d. (6) Eva Maria Ionescu (ROU) 7-5 6-1

SF

(7) Mathilde Ngijol Carre (FRA) v (WC) Hannah Klugman

Poor Max will bitterly regret that first set...... although he might not have won it in two, obviously. As will Hep her loss....

But it's been a decent showing.

And - of course - the starlet that is Hannah is still on course and has every chance against Mathilde tomorrow, although it might be a long match.....

Just to mention that Hep Oluwadare and Flora Johnson have made the finals of the girls' doubles

A really superb quality girls' SF match between Mika Buchnik (ISR) and Claire An (USA)

Top tennis.

The Israeli girl won, 7-6(5) 6-3.

But terribly close.

Mathilde takes a topsy-turvy first set against Hannah 7-5 (Mathilde led 3-1, Hannah served for the set at 5-4 and had 4 setpoints). Plenty of evidence of Hannah's chess-like understanding of possibilities, but the execution failed a bit too often, and she looked fatigued and a bit flustered towards the end of the set.

Yes. Mathilde started like another player, compared with yesterday against Hep

She'd obviously been read the riot act by her coach. Far more aggressive, put Hannha under pressure.

Hannah responded really well, and played some inspired tennis - true talent, not just coahcing.

But couldn't close out those set points, and let a little bit of wayward play spoil the set at the end and really get annoyed with herself.

I agree, she looks a little tired now.

But Mathilde is not a 'strong' player in her head always, so I wouldn't be too sure.....

First time I've seen Flora Johnson play - now in the doubles with Hep, on the livestream.

Hannah can be very proud of what she's put out here this week.

She'll be back in January and she'll be the draw from hell

A SF at age 12 is an excellent achievement

The French girl who, basically, Hep O had the beating of, leading 4-2 in the third, and clearly with the more penetrating and offensive game that day, and who then beat Hannah, went on to win the title in three sets.

Her name is Mathilde Ngijol Carre, for those who want to look out for her later.

And the Czech lad won, Maxim Mrva.

THis boy was described by the official French commentator (and I quote, it's not me saying it) as the most bad-spirited, anti-fair play, obnoxious player he'd seen for a long time.
