Hmm I was gonna start a thread like this, but didn't think it would be too popular. I'm 16, played a few Rankings tourneys this year, didn't do so well.

I still think the amount of tournaments in Australia has much to be desired. the lack of tournaments really affects how far you can get and therefore your ranking. Apparently in France there is 5000 tournaments a year so you could be playing what like 4 tournys a month?! Anyway for pennants I think ill be about divy 4 for 14s this year or divy 6 for 16s

D. Dokas
04-02-2008, 02:32 AM
wow 5000 tournies
u can go to 1 lose first round go to the other on the same day and win maybe lol

D. Dokas
04-02-2008, 02:33 AM

Play pennant mate. Season starts start of May I'm pretty sure, ends about September. If you're a good 16s player you would usually see yourself in Grade 7-4 I'd say thats about right. A really good 16s player maybe 4-2 and if your Marvin Barker (15yo) State Grade number 2! lol. It goes up to Grade 17 or something I think, and all the way to State Grade which is top tennis. You play a Singles Rubber every odd week and 2 doubles rubbers on the even. Great comp, bit of travel though, so try get some older blokes who can drive you!

Whereabouts in Melbourne are you moving?

Hey, Where abouts in Melb?? Saw ur vid.. u shud play some Optus hunior tour tournies for ranking points. U'll alright in the 16's. U could also get into a pennnant team.

Your results are pretty random :p Lost to O'Donohue 0 and 0 but just lost to Keser in 3 sets. I play with Keser a lot, damn good bloke and a good player. Recently won 4-6 6-3 7-6(2) against him.

thanks but that is the tennis.com.au site. anything else? Are their any ways to get rankings points other than open tournaments and top junior tourneys? I live in country vic and there's only a few tourneys on a year anywhere near me. I'm borderline open mens standard but I just need to get a bit better to get to that level, and I was hoping there'd be some way to do so without travelling all over vic only to get spanked in the first round of opens.

one last question to any aussie juniors, I turned 18 in february, what is the general cut off date for juniors?

Kid (poty g14) that beat me in district finals 3sets 6-4, probably got g10s2. hehe.

Interesting. baseliner good to see you went two better than me @ dingley singles and took my dlbs title. :D

You should have fun playing with michael and paul both are solid players, jason not so much. Big rauls a laugh to watch.
We narrowly beat them 1st time i played and they carved us up on the reverse with our other youngsters playing.
