Boys & Girls: 2023 French Open, clay (Week 23)


Excellent win by Henry and a decent chance of the quarters playing a qualifier in the next round (although obviously no easy matches in GSs).

Also good to see competitive matches from all our players, with Mimi coming back from injury and Hannah playing a much higher ranked and older player.

What an excellent looking scoreline from Hannah against the 16yo JWR 1, WTA 535. Continues to so impress

Oli B and partner seem to have conceded a walkover in the doubles, not sure reason why?

Just Henry left in the boys singles and doubles now

 I don't know about that. He was very good last year, and this year at the Nationals, and took the title at the J200 in Aldershot a month or so ago.

But the clay form is maybe a little surprising (did well at the Italian J300 but got knocked out first round in the J500 the week after)

However, he now gets the third seed, Prizmic, so that will be a big ask.

Prizmic (age 17) has no juniors ranking of note but he is ATP 293 in adults which is, I assume, how he qualified.

 That sounds like a different level. Still its been a really impressive tournament for Henry. Getting to the quarter finals of any GS is a real achievement. 

I wonder what his future will plans are: going on the professional tour or US Uni route?

Good question, Nix

Ranah and Mimi have just won their doubles - thank you to Discovery+ - nice to see a bit of that

Mimi was playing well, Ranah less so (way too back on her heels for doubles), but it was a pleasant match

 Oh thats good news. Pleased for Mimi should give her a lot of confidence coming back from injury and may help Ranah as well - hope so. I only gave Amazon prime so these posts are so useful Coup droit. Thanks.

 Unfortunately, Hannah & Emerson lost theirs in a MTB

Hannah was playing quite well, a little tentative, but it's easy to be picky - she would try and intercept on a harder ball, miss, then not intercept on a really easy one. However, some really good play too.

Importantly, she seemed to be enjoying it. As did Emerson. The other girls (both very young too) probably deserved it, just, overall.
