Eysseric and Suarez Navarro Crowned European Champions

31 Jul 2006 - Helen McFetridge

Jonathan Eysseric of France and Spain’s Carla Suarez Navarro were crowned European Champions in Klosters, Switzerland on Sunday, the first European Individual title for each of them.

Eysseric, seeded two, has had spectacular results in his first full year on the ITF Junior Circuit. Already in 2006 he has won the Grade A Italian Open and been runner-up in the Gerdau Cup and the Asuncion Bowl, both Grade 1, as well as the Grade 2 French Riviera International Junior Open. He was the youngest player in the European Championships draw, having just turned 16 at the end of May, but he sailed through to the semi-finals without dropping a set. There he faced fourteenth seed Ruben Bemelmans (BEL), who was in good form having won the Grade 1 German Junior Open just two weeks before. The Belgian got off to the better start, taking the first set 64, but Eysseric came back to take the next two 63 63 and book his place in the final.

In the final he faced the vastly more experienced Czech player Dusan Lojda, seeded four. In contrast to Eysseric, Lojda has been playing the ITF Junior Circuit since 2002. He also had a smooth path to the semi-finals, with Wimbledon runner-up Marcin Gawron (POL) able to garner just three games from him in the quarters. In the semis, unseeded Milan Zekic (SCG), ranked 907, surprised the Czech by taking the first set, but Lojda composed himself to win the next two 61 64.

The final was a close-fought encounter, with Eysseric taking the first set on a tie-break. The second set was almost as tight, but the French player edged it 64 to take the title.

The girls’ final featured two players who play the vast majority of their tennis at the senior level. France’s Yulia Fedossova, seeded five, and Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain, the sixth seed, have rarely been seen on the ITF Junior Circuit but their WTA rankings of 259 and 327 respectively meant the other players knew they were both a force to be reckoned with.

Fedossova breezed through to the final, with only top seed Mihaela Buzarnescu (ROM) able to come close to her, that in the quarter-finals. In the semis she destroyed fourth seed Evgenia Rodina (RUS) 62 60 to set up the final with Suarez Navarro. In contrast, the Spaniard had been taken to three sets in both the quarter- and semi-finals, by third seed Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea (ROM) and second seed Alizé Cornet (FRA) respectively. This final was also a close one, with the first set going to a tie-break which Suarez Navarro took by seven points to five. The second also went down to the wire, with the Spaniard eventually clinching it 75.

Fedossova gained some consolation when she teamed up with Cornet to take the doubles title with a 46 61 63 win over Russian pair Evgenia Rodina and Alexandra Panova. The boys’ doubles was won by Croatians Nikola Mektic and Antonio Veic, who defeated Milan Zekic and Arsenile Zlatanovic od Serbia 62 64.

Championnats d'Europe : Eysseric à toute vitesse

À Klosters, Jonathan Eysseric est devenu le quatrième Français vainqueur du Championnat d'Europe des 18 ans et moins. Le tout à seulement 16 ans. Youlia Fedossova a, elle, atteint la finale.

"Cette fois, j'ai eu droit à la Marseillaise rien que pour moi. D'habitude, je l'entendais lors de nos succès avec l'équipe de France." Consacré à plusieurs reprises par équipes en Europe (Copa del Sol 2004, Winter Cup 2005 et 2006, Coupe Borotra 2005), Jonathan Eysseric a connu le 30 juillet le bonheur d'un premier titre continental individuel dans les montagnes suisses.

"Il explose"

En finale, le gaucher, qui s'appuie sur une frappe très lourde notamment en coup droit, a pris le meilleur 7/6, 6/4 sur le Tchèque Dusan Lojda, déjà 620ème mondial ATP. En demi-finales, il avait cédé son seul set du tournoi face au Belge Ruben Bemelmans (6/4, 3/6, 6/3). "Après un départ difficile dû en partie à l'altitude, Jonathan a très bien joué, appréciait Guillaume Marx, le capitaine français. En demi-finales et en finale, il est mal parti, mais il a su redresser la barre. Il mérite sa victoire. Le voici 3ème junior mondial. Un cadet aussi bien classé, c'est rare. Il explose dans sa catégorie."

La saison 2006 d'Eysseric est en effet un modèle de constance. Finaliste de trois tournois juniors, il s'est imposé pour la première fois dans la catégorie à Milan en remportant les Internationaux d'Italie. Passé un peu à côté à Roland-Garros, où il chuta au 2ème tour, "Jonne", comme on le surnomme, a préparé le rendez-vous européen sur le circuit "pro". "J'y ai pris mes deux premiers points ATP, racontait-il. Depuis le printemps, j'ai le sentiment d'avoir encore progressé. Je me suis aguerri sur le circuit ATP. Comme le niveau est plus élevé, je suis devenu plus rigoureux."

"Devenir n°1 mondial junior"

Quatrième champion continental français après Sébastien Grosjean (1995), Arnaud Di Pasquale (1997) et Éric Prodon (1999), Eysseric est assurément le plus jeune à triompher chez les juniors, lui qui a fêté ses 16 ans le 27 mai [ ]. "Mon but est désormais de devenir n°1 mondial junior, annonçait le joueur de l'US Cagnes-sur-Mer. Si je gagne l'Open du Canada et l'US Open juniors, je peux revenir à 50 points du n°1, Thiemo De Bakker, qui ne doit pas faire la tournée américaine. Pour ça, je pars en Floride avec toute ma famille après la Galéa pour m'entraîner chez Bollettieri." Sacré programme.

Toujours à Klosters, Youlia Fedossova n'a pas été loin de l'imiter chez les filles, mais elle est tombée en finale face à l'Espagnole Carla Suarez Navarro (7/6, 7/5). La championne d'Europe avait auparavant stoppé le parcours d'Alizé Cornet en demi-finales (6/4, 2/6, 6/4). Youlia et Alizé, qui va consacrer son mois d'août à la préparation du… bac, se sont rattrapées en remportant le double face aux Russes Alexandra Panova et Evgenia Rodina 4/6, 6/1, 6/3. "C'était une bonne semaine, reconnaissait Pierre Bouteyre, le capitaine. Elles sont tombées contre une Espagnole talentueuse, aguerrie et 326ème mondiale. Les conditions, avec une balle qui tournait encore plus en altitude, lui ont bien convenu."

Slilam et Inzerillo, le destin des quarts


En 16 ans et moins, Nassim Slilam et Jérôme Inzerillo ont chuté en quarts à Orbetello. Récent gagnant du Derby Cadets, Slilam est tombé contre le futur finaliste, le Portugais Gastao Elias (4/6, 6/4, 6/4). Vice-champion d'Europe de la catégorie l'an passé, Inzerillo a été contraint à l'abandon face au futur vainqueur. Une blessure à la cheville l'a stoppé alors qu'il était à égalité 5-5 dans le premier set contre le Néerlandais Tim Van Terheyden [Another injury... ]. En revanche, à Chieti Scalo, Adeline Goncalves et Gracia Radovanovic sont tombées respectivement en huitièmes de finale et au deuxième tour.

En 14 ans et moins, à Ostrava, Romain Arneodo et Marie Menacer avaient, elle, chuté au troisième tour, et Gianni Mina, lui, cédé au deuxième. Chloé Babet avait en revanche atteint les quarts de finale à Ostrava, en République Tchèque. Trois semaines plus tôt, elle était devenue championne d'Europe par équipes à San Remo. À quand la consécration individuelle ? Il faut demander à Jonathan Eysseric.

Default Re: ~~The "Young Hopes" Thread~~

Well some old articles/reports new to this thread from the ITF's site archives...Better late than never.

First, reports on Eysseric's victory at the Italian Open with pictures. I'll have to post some things i have in store for so long on Sapène, Slilam and an interview of Inzé later...

There are some nice new pics on the Eysseric's "family site" (that's actually the one of the Tennis étude they manage...) that i linked to in one of the first posts (Tennis Étude) .

And both Inzé (soon to be opened) and Eysseric (currently under construction) are to have an official site apparently, the spaces are already reserved at least. But it was the same for Gaël for years and i still haven"t seen it so...Now after so much times they've finally opened a forum and after so many promisses, they have to precise that it's the last one (lol) "The site will definitely open on the 1st of September!" ...Wait and see...
II won't get my hopes up and anyway even if that's pretty meaningless, that's better for them to keep a low profile publicly imho so no site today is better...

De Bakker shocked in Italian Open first round

23 May 2006 - Helen McFetridge

Top seed and heavy pre-tournament favourite Thiemo de Bakker was knocked out on the first day of the Italian Open, a 63 62 loser to Dylan Sessagesimi of Switzerland. 16-year-old Sessagesimi won two tournaments at the end of last year, but his 2006 has been largely unsuccessful up to now with just three matches won in eight tournaments played. It looks as though the Swiss could be coming into form at just the right time. For de Bakker, who brought an incredible 26-1 record in 2006 with him to Milan, this defeat is a shock from which he will have to recover quickly as he goes after his first Grand Slam title in Paris.

Second seed in the boys’ event, Nicolas Santos of Brazil, was made to struggle by fellow South American Roberto Maytin (VEN), eventually coming through 86 in the third set. Several seeds did not manage to make it through to round two, among them fifth seeded Romanian Petre-Alexandre Luncanu, a 63 06 75 loser to Colombia’s Alejandro Gonzalez. Other seeds to fall included number seven Sho Aida (JPN), who went down in straight sets to Ricardo Urzua of Chile, and number 14 Pavel Chekhov (RUS). Chekhov scored one of the best wins of his career in Milan last year when he defeated Donald Young in the first round, but this year the tables were turned as he was upset by 15-year-old Jonathan Eysseric of France. Eysseric has reached three clay court finals this year on the ITF junior circuit, including two Grade 1s, and he could well benefit from the removal of de Bakker from the top section of the draw.

Girls top seeds progress

25 May 2006 - Faye Andrews

[...]

Kellen Damico (USA) and Nicolas Santos (BRA) join Luka Belic and Roman Jebavy as the only seeds left in the boys' singles draw. No.2 seed Santos saw off Jamie Hunt in straight sets 64 64. Damico did not enjoy quite as straightfoward a victory, losing the second set in the tiebreak, after sprinting through the first set 60 against Andrej (SVK). However, the American pulled himself together and wrapped up the match 62 in the third.

Jonathan Eysseric from France has been showing good form on the ITF Junior Circuit in 2006 and continued with a win overJapan's Fumiaki Kita 61 62. Eysseric will now take on giant slayer Dylan Sessagesimi, who put out No.1 seed Thiemo de Bakker in the first round.

Top Seeds Remain On Course In Milan

26 May 2006 - ITF - James Harrisson

[...]

The boys’ draw, by contrast, has only three seeds remaining in the last eight. Second seed Nicolas Santos from Brazil remains title favourite after winning 64 75 over Estonian Jaak Poldma. The world number five from Sao Paolo has won three high-ranking ITF Junior events in South America but has yet to register a tournament victory outside his home continent. Victory here would further boost his world ranking and improve his seeding at Junior Roland Garros, which starts on June 3rd. In the quarterfinals Santos faces Japanese Kei Nishikori, who made it through after his opponent, Antonio Veic (CRO), was forced to retire while trailing in the deciding set, with the score at 75 06 43.

Fourth seed Croatian Luka Belic, booked his place in the last eight with a victory over big-serving American Kellen Damico, 64 64, and must now play Nikola Mektic (CRO), while Roman Jebavy (CZE) beat Peter Lucassen (NED) in three sets, 64 36 61 and will now face Lebanese Bassam Beidas.

Also through is Jonathan Eysseric of France, who came through a tough match against Swiss Dylan Sessagesimi. After sharing the first two sets, which both went to a tiebreak, it was Esseric who broke early in the third and went on to win 67(6) 76(2) 62. His next opponent is Brazilian Joao Silva, who cruised through his match against Valentin Dimov (BUL), 61 60.

Eysseric and Olaru triumph in Milan

30 May 2006 - Faye Andrews

France’s Jonathan Eysseric and Romania’s Raluca-Ioana Olaru took centre stage in Milan with victory in the boys’ and girls’ singles at the Italian Junior Open in Milan.

The boys’ singles draw was decimated early in the week, only four seeds made it through to the third round. Pre tournament favourite and top seed, Thiemo de Bakker (NED) succumbed in the first round to Dylan Sessagesmi (SUI), leaving the top half of the draw wide open. In the bottom half No.2 seed Nicolas Santos (BRA) looked like he might take advantage of de Bakker’s demise, making it through to the quarterfinals. However Japan’s Kei Nishikori put an end to the second seeds hopes 61 63.

Eysseric had to fight hard for his first Grade A victory, following a tough third round win over Sessagesmi 67(6) 76(2) 62, the French boy then battled pas Luka Belic (CRO) in the semifinals 76(4) 57 97 before meeting Nishikori in the final.

In the final Eysseric made a great start taking the first set 61. Nishikori upped his game in the second set but was unable to stop the French boy wrapping up the match 64 in perfect preparation for his home Grand Slam, Roland Garros.

The girls’ draw provided fewer surprises than the boys’ but did give a good indication of player’s form going into Roland Garros. Top seed Pavlyuchenkova looked on course for another victory, easing through the early rounds, but was stopped in the semis by No.4 seed Sorana Mihaela Cirstea from Romanian. No.2 Olaru made it an all Romanian final, en route overcoming Khystyna Antoniychuk (UKR) in a three set battle in the quarterfinal 63 57 63 before dashing home hopes of victory by squeezing past Corinna Dentoni (ITA) 57 64 64.

In the all-Romanian final both girls gave it their all, Olaru taking the first set 62 before Cirstea levelled with the second set 63. Without either player prepared to give an inch it could have been Olaru’s experience on the big occasions, she was last year’s Roland Garros runner-up, which saw her through to victory 86 in the third. Olaru will be hoping to be able to repeat this victory in Paris, in order to erase memories of last years defeat.

Cirstea gained some revenge in the doubles, alongside partner Alexandra Panova (RUS) she defeated Olaru and partner Amina Rakhim (KAZ) in the final 75 64. The boys’ doubles was won by Roman Jebavy (CZE) and Hans Podlipnik Castillo (CHI), who defeated Americans Jamie Hunt and Nathanial Schnugg in the final 63 26 64.
And the pics from the ITF that go along with the reports.

(his little bros are sooooo cute.... )

So that's one less to follow here since he has his own thread...Thank you for taking a bit of the work off my back!

I know i'm very late...But i had good reasons.

Here are some of the nice pictures i mentioned from the Tennis études' site which is full of it. I only put there the "team" ones. Eysseric's fan or followers just have not to be lazy and to go in the site's galleries if they want more!

They're all from the Borotra Cup (European Summer Championships) 2005 final phase (qualification phase was in Spain for them) in France (Le Touquet i think it was...) except the two last one which are from the Winter Cup (Winter European Championships, hence the snow lol) 2005 final phase in the Czech Republic...

Then there are some interview videos i should hunt for. I think there was one of Adrien Puget or Axel Michon, one of those Eyserric retained this year's Winter Cup with... I'm too lazy to do it now but well...They'll be there one day lol I already posted a lot for one day.

Well, he didn't have the good idea to win any French championships in any age category ( ) so...normally no. (But maybe from somewhere else, who knows... )

Sometimes they show a bit of the other finalist, but unless i'm mistaken, i remember that when he lost to Inzé in 2004 i think it was, the vid didn't show him, sadly...I'd like to see it if such a vid existed. And of some of the others too if possible.

But one can get reports here and there of some of his matches and the impressions those who could see him play had...


I'll have to put this vid here btw...Oh God, so much to do...

So, speaking of vids...

I forgot that the French Championships had happened despite me not following them for once...

Kevin Botti won in the 17-18 years old category. Here is the site of the 2006 Championships (= results, summaries, audio and vids, pics, match reports etc...etc...) : http://www.fft.fr/championnat_de_france_2006/?id=1715.

And here's the page where you'll find a video interview of Botti in the middle of a few clips of him playing. Why do they always have to use weird music backgrounds? (There are also those of the other winners Guillaume Rufin, Romain Arneodo, Thomas Gély) : http://www.fft.fr/championnat_de_fra...ueurs-2006.htm

This video of Botti can help completing his profile. He's apparently from Chambéry (i didn't know where in Savoie he was born). He's from a family of handball players (there's a club in Chambéry where the great Jackson Richardson is playing btw) and at some time he had to choose between both sports and stopped handball. He only played tennis for fun at first and took handball more seriously but then he started being good at tennis and appreciating it and he don't regret the choice he's made at all...He supports AS Saint-Étienne. lol Good club to support. Very good supporters they have in the first sense of the term not one of the kind we see today in some other clubs...etc etc etc...He arrived completely relaxed at those Championships since he never do good there and was convinced he wouldn't play well once again, he also arrived fresher physically than the previous times and not too much thinking about it so that's maybe why he did well in his opinion... etc etc etc...I think that's pretty much it.

Here is the "archives" section with links to all the previous Championships' sites : http://www.fft.fr/championnat_de_france_2006/?id=1731

That's where i found videos of the previous winners Alexandre Sidorenko (both in 2004 and 2005, respectively in the 15-16 and 17-18 age categories), Constantin Belot (no Axel Michon or Adrien Puget as i wrongly said but i know why i made the mistake: because Belot and Puget won something together and i can't regognize one from the other lol), and Stéphane Piro who's still waiting for his presentation on this thread btw...

And the video i was mentioning, which is very poor, was the one of Inzé, when he won in 2004 against Eysseric in the final, that can be seen here : http://www.fft.fr/evenements2004/cha...ase/audio.html.

Now that's it for at least three months lol...

Default Re: ~~The "Young Hopes" Thread~~

BTW, Sidorenko also won in the 13-14 category in 2002 (Monfils won in the 15-16 one that same year) : http://www.fft.fr/evenements2002/Cha...ampionnat.html

Total domination of his generation from Sidorenko. lol
The other guys must be pissed of with him.
