Re: Alex Bolt

This guy is good but he needs to start playing for tournaments and go out of Australia and hopefully he gets a couple of wildcards into some of the future tournaments. Good Luck.

Re: Alex Bolt

Yes he is, the reason i made a thread for him was i saw his junior results and after two tournamnets thats pretty good got to a semi final in Northern Territory and lost to Luke Saville 6-2 6-3, but he also played a darwin tournament and made the final. Also he lives in the same town as me Murray Bridge South Australia.

He has played two future tournaments in Australia, at Esperance and Kalgollie but he lost first round in both but he still is capable of very good things.

I too live in Murray bridge and happen to be good friends with Bolty, he just recently went into the qualifying for the junior Australian Open and lost first round to Jea Moon Lee of Australia.
He is back in Murray Bridge and is getting to leave for Canberra to the AIS in a few days. Where he will go to Turkey, Junior Wimbledon and French Open.

Re: Alex Bolt

How old is this kid? Is it not a little premature to have a thread on him - doesn't seem to have done too much yet. Or have i missed a result?

Re: Alex Bolt

I've been wondering as well. He really doesn't seem to have any results that make him such a standout.

Re: Alex Bolt

Sorry if he isn't that good. But i know that there is better juniors in australia then him but he still is an alright junior. He made a final and a semi final in his only two juniors tournaments last year. He also qualified for an Australian future tournament where he lost to Daniel King-Turner 6-0 6-0. Not the greatest result but still in a main draw is ok. His only 16 still got plenty of time to impress people like you.

He is going to play in Roland Garros and Wimbledon juniors, so hopefully he can qualify. I don't know when he will play next but i will hopefully find out some time this week.

Re: Alex Bolt

So that means any one 18 + need to be top 185 ATP. , I think it said in papers to get into AIS , the " pinnacle program in Australia," to be eligible for funding.
Yet 16 year olds can get in with barely any results.?

How on earth can that be. Is this the easy to follow pathway Tiley is talking about in papers yesterday ? When only a couple of years ago this age group who are 18 + now were deemed to young for AIS and needed exceptional results to get in.

Talk about change the goal posts. How can any one follow Tennis Australia's pathway and set long term goals. ? If they need some financial or coaching help.?

Re: Alex Bolt

Since when is Tiley/TA consistent or "easy to follow". Obviously the "results orientated program" that he touted as you have to have the results don't apply to some.

I will not waste time talking about a junior that probably doesn't deserve a thread as he doesn't appear to have any results. Let's hope we can talk about him in the future - when he deserves it.
