A few of the NTC guys(and girls) were playing in a big open tournament in Quebec this week. the level is pretty good, since there are former pros such as Philip Gubenco and Mattew Akman, and other very solid players like Julien Gauthier, Kéziel Juneau, Jean-François Bérard, Nick Savage-Pollock,etc. Di Feo, Monette, Trkulja were the NTC guys that were there. Trkulja lost by walkover in the Quarterfinals, where he was set to play Monette. He had beaten Savage-Pollock before that. Both Di Feo and Monette lost to Gubenco, Hugo in the quarters and Sam in the Semis.
I personnally think it is good for the juniors players to play these types of tournaments once in a while, because they get to play some pretty good players, and even though the level is lower than futures of ITFs, they get some wins, and the gameplay is different than in the juniors. (by the way, they also had some of the girls play in the qualifying of this tournament...)
how did the girls fair?
i think PLD lost 7-5, 6-1 to paul capdeville in the final. The scoreboard has been stuck for a while but paul was up 40-0 and 5-1
