    Well, it's that time of year again - anybody heading over to Tarbes for Les Petit AS? Last year you guys had a good showing with all four boys semi-finalists and one of the girls finalists!

    cheers

    FIVE of the eight top American juniors selected to represent the USA in Europe are HIGH-TECH TENNIS customers! GOOD LUCK TO EVERY SINGLE PLAYER, but most especially these: GIRLS: CC Bellis-CA (since 2011 G12 Hard Courts), Jaeda Daniel-FL (since 2009 FL State Closed 10s), Michaela Gordon-CA (since 2012 G12 Hard Courts) BOYS: Patrick Kypson-NC (since 2009 Southern Closed 10s), Noah Makarome-FL (since 2010 Gator Bowl).

    Not anything personally against you at all, but do you have permission from them to use their names? Did they sign something? Not sure appropriate. Knowing two of the players pretty well and how their parents are, just checking. Also know other video services they use, so it could get sticky.....When photographer/video folks use or used my players image or name with their product they always get permission. Marketing 101.

    Permission is not required to use a player's name in a post. It happens here every day. TennisRecruiting.net has player profiles with names and pictures on public display. zootennis writes about it every day and snaps pictures of kids at tournaments without any release being signed. It comes with the territory.

    Unless that post can be construed as advertising different rules apply to that.

    JM is a player, big off both sides. Wonder if he is an aging out 14 or a young 14.

    How is CC Bellis doing? Saw her play this summer, really nice girl. My 8 year old daughter fell in love with her, couldn't stop talking about her for a couple of weeks.

    But I think permission or good taste is required before advertising that a minor is a customer. The post has been made, each of us can form our own opinions about the vendor

    It's an excellent tournament, feels very much like a festival of tennis with the way the venue is laid out.

    Thanks for chiming in NOLA. If he was in the age group, he would've been given the opportunity to earn a spot to go just as the others did.

    I do not know the precise details but I read on zootennis about a playoff that was held to determine the participants. It was successful last year as all 4 USA boys were the last 4 standing.

    In years past, the playoff was by invitation, and held the week prior to Orange Bowl. There are two round robin flights. The two winners are selected as well as two coaches choice- usually announced during the following week or two.

    Playoffs are by invitation and usually are only PD players who get the invite......

    I thought the playoff was for two spots and other two spots are "captain's picks" ( per zoo tennis).

    And I have no idea what "captains picks" means.

    Good luck to the four boys........


    On a totally different note, does anyone know where the list was published
    for the wild cards for the Winter Nationals for Arizona?

    The finals are all filmed and there was an official DVD of each last year - you could probably contact the organising committee and you might get lucky. www.lespetitas.com

    It was a very good final last year (both boys finals were very high quality - wheelchair and u14's).

    Cheers

    Michaela Gordon 6-3 6-1
    CC Bellis 6-1 6-0

    Sam Riffice 3-6 6-2 6-2
    Patrick Kipson 6-3 6-2

    You have presented here results from
    Aegon Junior International Teen Tennis
    Bolton, Great Britain U14


    while Le Petit As is sheduled from 21 of January.

    BTW Tennis Europe updates every day results on junior events so it is easy to follow favorite young players.

    I think most of them are the same, kids with better funding are going everywhere :)

    You can find here acceptance list on which kids ranking are I think based on last year performance (not updated after some kids left for U16) so you can maybe find some of the names with whom you are familiar.

    If you mean for the Americans, yes it is one team of four that is selected to play at both events.

    I was looking at the results of Les Petis 2013 and Gordon and Bellis are still in it! Yea! Let's go NorCal! Also, another girl by the name of Sofia Zhuk, who registered as out of NorCal (Granite Bay) for local events, but is based in Russia, is still in it as well. I've seen all these girls play, they are awesome elite level players.

    ^^^ Yeah, watched some of CC Bellis today, quite a petite girl, but technically pretty sound, played well - comfortable taking the ball early, which on courts that take spin this well is a big advantage. Sofya Zhuk is the player the papers here are talking about, she has looked really solid in the two matches I have seen of hers, but the girl I am most impressed with is the Algerian girl Ibbou, great mover, really sets herself behind the ball and has exceptional control over the ball flight. Picked after match one and she's still going strong.

    Cheers

    Yep, I'm a NorCal guy as well, and I can't believe these girls are only 13.

    I believe CC won the NorCal sectional 18's.

    I saw somewhere that she credits her winning to playing 8 hours a week on clay.

    Gianni got beat i'm afraid by Ramazzotti of Italy - Ramazzotti was always in control and Ross never really threatened. Ramazzotti is built, for an u14 player he really looks like a full grown guy!

    Good news is we have semi's of singles and final of dubs of wheelchair event tomorrow! :D

    Bellis won her semi final against Zhuk - gutsy kid and not afraid to get inside the baseline, which is what made the difference! Final is tomorrow.
