Total dominations . Guaranteed American winner .
Incredible dominance. The four of them have only dropped one set in their 16 matches combined. This after last week's performance at Teen Tennis when the U.S. had both finalists, 3 of 4 semifinalists, and 4 of 8 quarterfinalists. As if to drive home their dominance over the competition, both doubles teams have reached both finals. I've never seen that before in an internationally prestigous tournament.

And to think that Stefan Kozlov was still eligible to compete at these tournaments. He's better than all of them at the moment.

I'm not sure if finesse is the word I'd use. His favorite player is Djokovic, and from the video I've seen he kind of plays like Djokovic. Great speed, solid off both wings, and very adept at changing the direction of the ball.

Le Petite As 2012

Congrats to Frances Tiafoe on back to back titles .

Quote:
Today in Tarbes, France, American Frances Tiafoe completed his sweep of Les Petits As titles, winning the singles final from William Blumberg of the US 6-0, 6-2. Tiafoe, who turned 14 during this USTA-sponsored European trip, won the Teen Tennis singles title in Bolton last week, so he came into Les Petits As as a favorite, and a target. although he was only seeded No. 4. His toughest match came in the semifinals against fellow American Nathan Ponwith, the No. 10 seed, with Tiafoe dropping his only set of the tournament before recording a 2-6, 6-2, 6-4 win. Tiafoe won the doubles title on Saturday with partner Michael Mmoh of the US, beating Ponwith and Blumberg in another all-American final.

Tiafoe, who trains at the Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, Maryland, is the second consecutive American boy to capture the prestigious 14-and-under tournament. Henrik Wiersholm won the championship last year. This year's all-American final was only the second time the tournament's 30-year history that it featured two players from the same country. The previous one, in 2003, also was between two Americans, with Donald Young beating Leo Rosenberg. This year the United States made history with all four semifinalists, which had never been done.

1st Round
[SE] Alexio Halebian def. Olivier Sajous (HAI) 6-1 6-4
[WC] Thai-Son Kwiatkowski lost to Gabriel Moraru [6] (ROU) 1-6 2-6
[Q]  Mitchell Krueger lost to Tennys Sandgren (USA) 2-6 2-6
Alexio got another win this week. He seems to be doing well on clay; not surprising since clay is listed as his favorite surface. Up next is Christian Lindell from Sweden.

Re: Juniors: Noah Rubin, Thai-Son Kwiatkowski, and others

Forgot to update but if you didn't already know, Alexios lost in three tight sets to Lindell. He is inching closer to the top 1000; hopefully he can join Christian there soon.

May the best boy win. Welcome back to the junior circuit, Thai and let's try to get that ranking up so you can play in junior slams this year. Also interesting to note that Noah Rubin will be attempting to qualify for his first future at USA F5, good luck .
