Sasha is playing a string of junior tournaments in Europe leading up to the Trofeo Bonfiglio. He's a top seed in most of them, and I expect him to win a few, and come out of the end of May with a Top 20 ranking.
Lost in 3 unfortunately, 4-6 6-3 4-6. Nice week anyway, good to see him becoming more consistent in junior tournies. Back at it right away, playing a 10k future in Sweden against WC Jesper Brunstrom in the first round. GL.
Seems like strange tournament scheduling. He's goign from playing 3 tournaments in Southern Europe to playing a men's event in northern europe, and then the following week he'll be playing a junior event in Southern Europe again. In my opinion he should either play the G1 in Italy, or take a week for rest, regardless of whether he'll pick up pro points or not.
