I just wanted to throw this out but Abanda in the Juniors on the women's side is the only girl in the top 500 who is born in 1997 and at the end of this week will almost be in the top 200. The women's side is really strong and the men are catching up. Looking like a promising future for sure.
Diez is playing a futures tournament in Israel, is the 4th seed and up against 2009 Orange Bowl runner up de Greef. Next week's US Futures will be interesting to say the least. The qualifying draw is 128 people, so kids like Schnur, who's born in 1995, is currently on the list along with Krainik, and Hoang, who won provincials in Ontario last year I believe, and a bunch more Canadians too.
