I managed to catch (at least a few points of) thirteen of the sixteen boys' singles matches today, as well as watch most of the WTA quarter-finals on Centre Court. I'll type up my thoughts on the stuff I saw when I have the time. I was really impressed with the quality that the juniors produced.

Kyrgios got beaten easily by Hyeon Chung 2 & 2 WTF

But really impressive from Chung. The juniors right now are so good and so deep.

Kokkinakis fitness maybe not up to snuff yet? Surprised to see him get bageled in the third by Djere, just like I am surprised to see Djere in the QF

Default Re: The Junior Championships, Wimbledon | Great Britain | GA | 29 June - 07 July 2013

Sorry, I was quite late arriving yesterday, so I missed Garin-Bambridge, Chung-Di Feo & Kyrgios-Miedler.

Baldi-Harris

I watched this match for two spells, one where Baldi was dominating at the end of the first set (which is why I decided to look elsewhere), and the other when it all of a sudden got tight in the second set. Now, I get the feeling Baldi was well below his best and wasn't especially comfortable on the grass, but even that was enough to beat Harris rather handily. The Briton had nothing to hurt Baldi with. A rather weak serve, despite his height, a forehand so awkward that a slice on that wing became a fixture in rallies, and very clunky hands up at the net. I liked Harris' backhand, probably the only thing that impressed me about him, but that wasn't going to win him this contest. The Italian was solid from the back, serving intelligently. He didn't do anything special to win the lion's share of the points though, which is likely more down to his inferior opponent, more than anything else. Certainly a classy player from the baseline though, very tidy strokes.

Coric-Halys

Probably the match I enjoyed the most out of the whole day. Let me start by saying that Coric is extremely intimidating. Not only is he reasonably tall and uncompromisingly powerful, his on-court behaviour is extremely unnerving too. Screaming after the occasional lost point, loud calls of 'come on' and 'yes' were definitely audible from the other side of the adjacent courts. I felt a bit sorry for Halys here as he was very much up against it before he stepped on to court. As for the match itself, well it was tight. Coric has a massive serve and that was allowing him to hold comfortably in the majority of his service games, but Halys has a lot of talent and hit some great backhand returns of the second serve and his reflexes are superb. Coric just had a bit more power, and was able to match the slices that Halys often deployed, and even counter them with better ones of his own. The Frenchman has a break in the second set, but he was let down by missing too many first serves, and his forehand sometimes breaks down on even the easy ball. I see a successful player of the future there, but Coric should be a successful player of the near future. He looks a good bet for the title.

Djere-Khachanov

I'm not surprised Khachanov has had some big wins on the junior circuit already, but today he was simply outplayed by somebody who to me looks like an awesome technician. The Russian imparts a huge amount of spin on the ball with his forehand, and his backhand isn't bad in that regard, either. However, Djere is a good mover and once he started finding his range, he didn't miss. I understand people say that he can't play off of clay, and despite winning today, that was evident. All the skills of a quality clay-courter were on show. Basing himself deep behind the baseline, he allowed Khachanov to take control of the rallies often, but as soon as he had the opportunity to bring a big forehand in to play, he did so. I think the Russian was the better player when both weren't at the baseline, but he didn't quite have the skill to outmaneuver the Serb. Both could work on their serves, as they are going to get eaten alive by good returners in the latter stages of futures tournaments.

Kokkinakis-Windahl

Didn't see much of this, so I'll be brief. I also think everyone knows how Kokkinakis plays, so I'll talk about his opponent, instead. Windahl looked like your solid, run-of-the-mill type player. Reasonably big serve and then very solid from the back. He moved nicely as well. Unfortunately I didn't stay long enough to work out what the Swede's favourite patterns were, but from what I saw, he had a hard time returning, which is understandable against Kokkinakis, who probably had one of the biggest serves I saw all day.

Marterer-Napolitano

First match I watched, and I'll admit I knew next to nothing about Marterer. I liked what I saw though. He kind of adopts the Andreas Beck gamestyle just with a big serve. He possesses a solid weapon in the forehand and a threatening, if a little volatile, flat backhand. Napolitano should have won this match though. He was a break up in the third set. Then went a break down, only to break straight back when the German was serving for the match. The Italian reminds me of Marcel Granollers, both in terms of looks and bits of his games. He's much more free-flowing and doesn't grunt though. I liked his willingness to come to the net often, and of all the players I saw today, he probably showed the most skill up in the forecourt. I think he could be a good all-surface player in the future, even if he primarily plays on the clay. Marterer earned a new fan in me, and is my dark horse for the title.

I'll do some write-ups for the bottom half second round matches later on.

Great write-up! Much appreciated.

The Kyrgios loss really surprises me

I'm confused at what this. Is it supposed to be the best results from a 15 yr old? Because Tomic and Donald Young both won Junior slams at 15. So what are these stats?

He put (season) so he means in that year. So for example Tomic won the AO at the start of his age 16 year.

Ah! Makes sense. Although to be fair, Tomic was still younger than Kozlov when he won it.


Also, excellent write-ups Bulldog! I really enjoyed the Coric-Halys one particularly. They're a part of a special crop of 1996 talent.

Edmund-Nishioka

High quality match, and the period I watched was dead even. Edmund, again, I'm sure most people know how he plays. Nishioka on the other hand is really interesting. He's not the biggest guy around, so has to rely on his movement and craft. I like his forehand and his backhand slice is a decent change-up, but his serve and backhand need some work if he is to make the grade. Edmund was just a bit too powerful on the day which is why I think he ended up dominating the match. Apart from Quinzi, Edmund had the best forehand of the players I saw.

O'Mara-Cachin

I get the feeling these two really aren't that comfortable on grass. Cachin, in particular, was really struggling to get down low to meet the ball's low bounce on this surface. The Argentine is a good ballstriker though and I can see why he could be a factor on a clay-court or a hard-court. O'Mara has a great forehand, by the way. Not huge, but heavy enough to cause problems.

Kozlov-Gomez

I was really excited about this one, but I arrived once the match was all but over. Kozlov had just got a break early in the second set and I rather feel this broke the Mexican's spirit, somewhat. He was struggling to hold on to his serve afterwards, and Kozlov was cruising. The American has a lot of talent, he manipulates the ball flight so well, making it very difficult for his opponent to get into a rhythm. I believe that Gomez is the type of player who would be content to crunch forehands all day long if you give him the chances, but Kozlov was very intelligent to not get involved in those kind of rallies. I'd like to see the American develop some serious weaponry, but he's got time on his side, and I wouldn't be surprised if he heads the rankings on the junior circuit in the coming years, but I wonder if it's worth it.

Zverev-Cash

I saw literally a couple of points of this, so I can't go in to any sort of detail. Zverev seems to be a very dictatorial player, even on this surface. He hits a mean forehand and is offensive, but very reluctant to come in to net. Would love to have seen him for a little longer, but the rain came down unfortunately.

Quinzi-Haerteis

Two left-handers going at it. Quinzi has every shot in the book apart from a big flat serve. Ironically, the only shot I saw Haertheis to possess is a big flat serve. The German tried coming in to net as he was just outclassed by Quinzi from the baseline, with the topspin the Italian creates really causing him problems, even on the grass. It didn't really work as Quinzi won the first set rather comfortably. I left and didn't return until the end of the second set, but was somewhat surprised to see him being stretched. Perhaps what I saw of the German in the first set was a nerves?

Tatlot-Trongcharoenchaikul

Didn't see much of this, and much to my disappointment, I never heard the umpire try to pronounce 'Trongcharoenchaikul', as he didn't win a game after I started watching early in the second set. The Thai has a nice two-handed backhand from what I saw, but was really not putting any effort in. Tatlot kept up the intensity right until the end, and oh boy does he look strong. I liked everything from his serve to his movement, via his forehand, but I was watching him compete against a player who had all but given up, so my opinion is likely to be a little misguided.

Couacaud-Mousley

The only single-handed backhand I saw all day belonged to Mousley. It's just a shame that he was far too erratic to cause many problems for the Frenchman. The Australian was able to win his fair share of points with a good array of ground-stroke winners, but Couacaud was just too solid on the day. A marvelous display of counter-punching tennis from him earned him an easy win.

Milojevic-Medvedev

I watched very little of this, and the reason for that is it was so easy for the Serb. I didn't rate him much before the tournament started, and my opinion hasn't changed. He can hit the ball extremely well off both sides, but there is literally nothing to go with it. Medvedev wasn't solid enough to win this, but Milojevic is no worthy number two.

Bulldog, you are the Man!

What do you think about Borna's ground-strokes, his base-line game, is he quick, is he offensive or deffensive type of player? Does he like to mix his game?

Quote:
Boy’s top seed Nick Kyrgios was stunned 62 62 by Hyeon Chung of Korea while third seed Alexander Zverev was forced to quit in the third set of his match with 15-year-old American Stefan Kozlov because of a shoulder injury and seventh seed Christian Garin from Chile, the French Open winner, quit when trailing Maximilian Marterer of Germany 63 32 with Achilles pain.

In the boys’ event, Kyrgios suffered a shock defeat by Chung, who played superb tennis to win in straight sets. “I didn’t feel any pressure because he’s the top seed,” Chung said. “I have been feeling very confident and played well. It took me some time to get used to the grass but now I am playing very well on it.”

Kozlov showed he could be a major force in the junior game with a fine win over third seed Zverev.

“I was really, really nervous, that was the most nervous I have ever been,” Kozlov said. “After a break between the first and second sets, I came back not worrying as much, just trying to play my game. It took a few games because the first set was pretty bad, first set I was tight.

“I played him two years ago and I won 1 and 1 so I knew he was looking for revenge and I knew he was playing really well.”

Kozlov now plays fifth seed Kyle Edmund, who beat fellow Brit Jonny O’Mara 63 62. “I think I won’t be nervous tomorrow,” Kozlov said. “I play Kyle, he’s a couple of years older than me so it should be good.”

Second seed Nikola Milojevic of Serbia beat Enzo Couacoud of France 75 64 and now plays sixth seed Gianluigi Quinzi of Italy, who crushed Johan Sebastien Tatlot 61 61.

Another Serbian, fourth seed Laslo Djere, came from behind for the second straight round, beating Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis 36 62 60 while eighth seed Borna Coric of Croatia ousted ninth seed Filippo Baldi of Italy 64 75.
