Re: Juniors

yes, borna is big hope. interesting, his 1st junior tournament was in mostar last year. after his 1st win on junior tour (which was in february; he started with 0:4 what is absolutely normal for 13 old kid), which was in 3 sets he won 12 out 14 matches (semis, final and title in that order, all on G4). 11 of them was in 2 sets. after that semis he played his 1st futures where he easil won vs robert rumler who was around 700. spot on pro tour. rumler is one of the best player born in 1993 and he is height 1990. yes, people from tennis world says he is something special. but i wouldn't go so far, it would be fantastic if he could somehow break in top 10 one day. btw, his game is very similar to coria's and he is claycourter. his idol is nadal and dream to win a RG title.

Re: Juniors

Borna lost today from a 2.5 years older and 287 spots better ranked player.In 1/8 final from 16 players Borna was only one born in 1996 and another one player was born in 1995 (our Franko Miocic).All other players was 93.-94.With this win,I think that Borna will jump on about 350. place on junior rank next monday.

Re: Juniors

With just 1 win last week on tournament in Hungary,Borna is up to #327 (#399 last week) on the new junior rank.There is no younger boy that is better placed on the list.Only two that are close to him are:

#95 Gianluigi Quinzi (1.2.1996.)
#298 Ken Onishi (18.2.1996)


and they are 9 months older than Borna who is born at the end of 1996.He really is one of the best kids in the world in his age.

Re: Juniors

This week Borna is playing U-16 tournament in Italy where he is #8 seeded.It'll be interesting to see how far he can go because all players are '95. or younger.I don't know how,but #1 seed is #879 on junior ranking???

Re: Juniors

Borna won today in the 1/8 finals 6-0 6-2 against Daniel Kerznerman from USA.He's in the 1/4 final without losing a single set!!!

In 1/4 final he is playing against Noah Rubin From USA.Borna is younger than Rubin 7 months,but Rubin don't have even close results that Borna have.Borna is strong favorite in this match.

actually, it's 9 months difference. rubin is great talent, one of the best of that generation, the best american prospect. he played final of les tarbes last year (U-14).it should to be tough for borna (atleast one set). Daniel Kerznerman was one of the best in U-12.
