It's one of the most prestigious junior events (a G1)

Semi results:

SF (13) Nikola Mektic d. Kevin Botti 6-4;6-3
SF (1) Marin Cilic d. (4) Dusan Lojda 6-2;6-1

Mektic took out the second seed, US Open Champ, Sweeting, in the round of 16

:bounce:

Croatia also had two other seeded players in this event, Veic and Belic

Hopefully Davis Cup will stay just where it is for years to come :)

Cilic is doubtless the best and the great promise of croat tennis . His name has been sounding in the last years since he has always been considered as one of the best european players at his age . In 2002 was the runner up in European invidual championship under 14 , and last year was the European champion under 16.

This year won Roland Garros in juniors and is at the second poistion in Juniors ranking behind Young .

Very good serve , huge forehand, he has the talent so his future depends on himself.
