I hope we get to see more of them this year, especially Stefan. Tennis would be that much funner to watch if we have more juniors like him. I think he needs to give clinics on drop-shot and sliding (though probably not safe
Can't believe that Junior Davis Cup Qualifying is already near. Will be interesting to see who makes the team; will probably be decided after the Easter Bowl. Kozlov is a no brainer (still can't believe he choked that match last year to ruin his perfect DC record
). The other two spots will likely be between Mmoh, Tiafoe, Blumberg, and Wiersholm. The ideal team would be Kozlov, Mmoh, and Tiafoe. However, Blumberg is typically more reliable than Tiafoe (there is no Coach Sell to punish him this time
) and Wiersholm is a USTA kid. Maybe, we will get a surprise like last year b/c of injuries (felt bad for Wiersholm
, at least Rubin got to compete in the final stage).
On the other hand, our WJT team doesn't look so promising. I hope that Gianni Ross or Patrick Kypson can make the team, though they are not very reliable.
