Qualifier Michael Mmoh of the United States won the singles and doubles titles at this week's ITF Grade 4 in Guatemala, beating No. 2 seed Sebastian Penaloza of Chile in the final. In addition to defeating the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, the 14-year-old, playing in just his sixth ITF event, beat American Henrik Wiersholm, last week's Grade 4 winner, in the semifinals. Mmoh also won the doubles, teaming with Thomas Adriano Tenreiro of Venezuela.
:yeah:

ITF Junior Ranking - March 5th 2012

142 KOZLOV, Stefan 210.00
372 MMOH, Michael 101.25
438 WIERSHOLM, Henrik 86.25

Congrats to Mmoh and Wiersholm on a career high ITF ranking :cheerleader:

With the exception of Kozlov, it seems that they won't be playing again until the last week of March (USTA Claremont ITF G4).



Mmoh is back training at IMG Academies, preparing for his upcoming tournaments, and is looking to continue his rise up the rankings.

Zootennis:

There are a couple of interesting 18s vs. 16s choices made by competitors who are playing both California events. Michael Mmoh, who is 15 (actually Mmoh is 14, thanks for the correction), has opted for the 18s in both tournaments, but 14-year-old Stefan Kozlov has decided to play the 16s at the Easter Bowl, although he would have easily qualified for the 18s. Like Koslov, rival Henrik Wiersholm will be playing the 18s in Carson and the 16s in Rancho Mirage.
Can't wait for the International Spring Championships & Easter Bowl :bounce:

Ponwith debuts, Nava looking to make a run?

13 year old Nathan Ponwith made his itf debut in Claremont winning three matches to make the maindraw but lost 63 63 in the 1st round to another talented junior, No.5 seed Alexander Zverev of Germany. Good effort in his first try :hug:.

Also Eduardo Nava is through to the 3rd round of this same event taking out Ponwith's conqueror A. Zverev 64 61 :eek:.
