Re: the young hopes of yours country

Sorry, I wasn't able to chose one by year...

87 : Chardy
88 : Sidorenko, Mannarino
89 : Botti, Piro
90 : Inzerillo, Eysseric (there's a quite more players born in 90 who can be considered as french hopes but I try to respect a little bit your thread )

Re: the young hopes of yours country

Portugal

1988: Pedro Sousa (I'm not sure of his future)
1990: Gastão Elias
1991: Martim Trueva
1992: Miguel Almeida

I bet that last 3 names will be in ATP Tour (top 50/100).

Portugal don't/didn't has good tradition in tennis, only Nuno Marques got top 100 in 90's, but I have the hope in this 3 players and in 13 years old girl, Michelle Brito, to WTA Tour.

LUSO TÉNIS - Ténis português

FREDERICO GIL - RUI MACHADO - GASTÂO ELIAS - LEONARDO TAVARES
MICHELLE LARCHER DE BRITO - NEUZA SILVA - FREDERICA PIEDADE - MARIA JOÃO KOEHLER - MAGALI DE LATTRE

THE FUTURE
GASTÃO ELIAS
MICHELLE LARCHER DE BRITO

Re: the young hopes of yours country

I haven't seen this thread before.

Pixie - now we both now that A. Mannarino is born in 1988 (he is 17 so far) but you clearly mentioned him before the discussion in futures thread.

Poland
1987 - Syrewicz, Owsian (maybe)
1988 - Panfil, Koniusz, Gawron (maybe him too.....)
1989 - Szmigiel
1990 - no showing yet.

I will burn
And you will die...

1987 - Syrewicz
1988 - Gawron, Panfil (maybe), Starakiewicz

I have seen Owsian in action couple of times. Seems talented, but not converting it and I don't know the reason Once it was injury, later, I don't know.

Starakiewicz - have seen him once. Too few times for me to predict. Seemed nothing better than Owsian... player-like I admit

Chlebowski is the son our our local politician that's why I maybe didn't mention him. Of course, all good to him.

[02] Prepare for another star in the making
By Soteris Charalambous
BOOSTED by his success at the US Open last month, expectations were naturally high about Marcos Baghdatis' progress at this month's men's satellite tournament in Zurich. National Coach Yiannos Hadjigeorgiou was pleased to report, "He won the tournament and won't have to play any more qualifying matches, but more importantly he qualifies for the Masters tournament (at the end of the month).

"He beat a German player ranked in the top 250 on the ATP men's tour and a French player who had been in the top 150, got injured and was on his way back up, until he met Marcos."

His victory further emphasises the importance of the postponement of military service granted by the Council of Ministers, a fact quickly acknowledged by the President of the Cyprus Tennis Federation (CTF), Philios Christodoulou and Hadjigeorgiou, meeting yesterday to assess the progress of young players on the island.

But the focus of their meeting swiftly moved on, to something seemingly more pressing. Twelve-year-old George Koshis, from Paralimni, has just won the Open Benjamin in Bordeaux, an international tournament where he defeated the French number one and which included the best players from France and Portugal.

Hadjigeorgiou is not prone to overstatement, aware of the pitfalls of over- exposing his young ace. But the outcome of the meeting reveals the level of confidence they have in the player. He is being entered into the Junior Orange Ball competition in Florida, a competition that attracts the best talent in the world for his age group.

Is this too much exposure for the youngster? "No, the level is very similar to the tournament he has just won in France," replied Hadjigeorgiou.

For Cyprus to have produced one tennis talent of the calibre of Marcos Baghdatis is astonishing: for there to be another demonstrating the same potential is almost beyond belief.

"He's another Marcos," enthused Hadjigeorgiou, "He's at the same level that Marcos was at the same age."

Coming from anyone else, this may have sounded a little over-stated, but he is uniquely qualified to pass judgement. In the two and a half years before Marcos left for France, Hadjigeorgiou was his coach and to this day maintains regular contact. Since the beginning of the year he has coached young Koshis.


A similar performance in the US, to the one in France, will undoubtedly alert agents to his potential and result in him leaving Cyprus to be coached in another country.

Some parents might buckle under the emotional burden of losing a child before it has reached its teens in pursuit of a tennis career, but it is a sacrifice they are seemingly prepared to make. "Yes, we may lose him as we did Marcos. His family are very focused, but these are the sacrifices of modern tennis. There are hundreds of thousands of players competing out there," said Christodoulou.

The CTF president reluctantly accepts praise for the emergence of the two players from a country with very little tennis background. "They are exceptional talents, with the full backing of their families," he said. But put into an international context the achievement of the CTF is quite remarkable.

Countries like Britain can boast Tim Henman (Greg Rusedski chose to represent Britain after coming through US and Canadian academies), but as highlighted in a special report on Sky Sports there is little talent coming through, despite over £100 million poured into tennis every year. The CTF works with a tiny fraction of that budget.

In fact, its success has been such that in the latest meeting of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) the council voted not to award the CTF any further development funding. Christodoulou's strong opposition eventually reversed the decision, but it reflects the perception within the tennis world that Cyprus has now established itself.

"Making a breakthrough with Marcos was very important," said Christodoulou, "He will be the inspiration for more youngsters." He has already been the inspiration for one - George Koshis.
