Canada build on strong start in Czech Republic


PROSTEJOV, CZECH REPUBLIC: Canada continued their push for the title in the boys’ competition as they defeated the other seeded team in their group, Chinese Taipei.
The tournament is scheduled so that Tuesday’s matches feature the teams that won on the opening day facing the teams that lost, allowing for a potential final showdown on Wednesday to decide who finishes top of each group.
Chinese Taipei’s shock defeat at the hands of the Czech Republic yesterday left Canada, the No. 2 seeds, facing 5th-seeded Chinese Taipei earlier than they would have anticipated.
The opening rubber saw Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime take on Hua-Chen Yu, who had not featured in the singles on the opening day. The change of players did not change the fortunes of the Taiwanese and Auger-Aliassime won 63 60 to hand the North Americans the advantage.
This left Canadian No. 1 Nicaise Muamba knowing that if he could defeat the hard-hitting Chen-Jui Ho then Canada could be no worse than level with the Czech Republic at the end of the day. Things did not start as planned for Muamba, however, as Ho flew out of the blocks and took the first set 64.
Muamba fought back to take the second set 63 to level the rubber and force a deciding set, much to the fans’ delight. The third set was a tense affair with neither player giving an inch as the set progressed on-serve.
With the set tied at 4-4 and Muamba serving, there was a pivotal game. It quickly progressed to deuce before some breathtaking rallies resulted in Muamba saving break points and holding a 5-4 lead. Spurred on by his escape, he broke the Ho serve to seal a 46 63 64 victory and give Canada an unassailable 2-0 lead.
In the doubles, Muamba and Auger-Aliassime took on Yu and Yu-Hsiang Su. It was the Taiwanese pair, looking to claim their nation’s first rubber of the tournament, who started the brighter of the two, claiming the opening set 64.
The Canadians fought back to claim the second set 75 before sealing their victory with a quick third set 46 75 62.
“It was a great battle,” said Auger-Aliassime speaking after their doubles victory. “I think both teams played really good and had big opportunities but we held out”. When asked about the tournament, Muamba replied “It’s a great tournament, there are great activities, the food is good, the courts are good and I really like it.” “Everybody on the site is doing everything they can to make sure the tournament goes well” Auger-Aliassime added

Canada Boy Move on Into the SF too play Russia in World Junior Tennis Finals
In the boys’ draw there was great excitement surrounding the hosts who took on No. 2 seeds Canada for a place in the final four.
The tie started poorly for the hosts as Felix Auger-Aliassime defeated Evzen Holis 63 63. They were back in the tie, however, when No. 1 Tomas Jirousek defeated Nicaise Muamba, also 63 63, to force the deciding doubles.
The Czech pair of Jirousek and Holis recently won the Tennis Europe Under 14 doubles title and confidence was high in the predominantly Czech crowd. Unfortunately, neither Czech player was able to find any rhythm and the Canadians booked their place in the final four with a 62 60 victory.

Canada Vs Germany in the Finals World Junior Tennis Finals

Germany storm into boys' final​

PROSTEJOV, CZECH REPUBLIC: Top seeds Germany surged into Saturday’s final following an impressive display in Thursday’s semifinal against Brazil at the ITF World Junior Tennis Finals.
The teams competing for the title and attempting to stave off relegation today have a rest day tomorrow as the teams playing for 5-12th play their final matches on Friday.
If the Germans felt any pressure going into today’s final four match as top seeds, they did not show it. German No. 2 Nicola Kuhn took on Joao Reis in the opening rubber and the European eased through the first set, taking it 62. Reis fought back in the second set but Kuhn proved too strong, sealing a 62 63 victory and put Germany one step closer to the final.
The second rubber saw Rudolf Molleker, who suffered a shock defeat against South American opposition yesterday, take on Thiago Wild, undefeated in the group stage but struggling with a back injury. The match was one-way traffic as Molleker blasted past his Brazilian opponent, winning 60 61 and booking Germany’s place in this weekend’s final.

The last finalist was decided in the final rubber to finish as Canada took on reigning champions Russia. Felix Auger-Aliassime took on Nikolay Vylegzhanin in the opening rubber and he quickly gave Canada the lead, winning 61 62.
Russian No. 1 Alen Avidzba then went into his match with Nicaise Muamba knowing that he needed a win to keep Russian hopes alive. Things started poorly for the European as Muamba breezed through the first set taking it 62 to put the North Americans just one set away from the final.
Avidzba refused to give up and fought back, forcing the second set to a tiebreak which he won 7-5. Then, he clinched a tight third set to secure a 26 76(5) 64 win and send the semifinal into a deciding doubles rubber.
Both Canadian singles players teamed up for the doubles and Avidzba partnered Alexey Zakharov for Russia. It was the Canadians who started the stronger, taking the opening set 63. Once again, the Russians fought back and took the second set 62 ensuring the tie would go down to the final set of the doubles.
There would be no fairy tale for the returning champions however, as the Canadian pair upped their game to seal a 63 26 60 victory and book their place against top seeds Germany in Saturday’s final.

Canada doesn't have any strong 2001 players, it's such a weak year. I've seen Jack and Denis playing since they were 8 years old, and ever since they built the National Training centre those kids have really taken off. I think Denis will be a great pro, his motor skills are amazing, he just hasn't filled out his body yet, he's still extremely lanky.

Nicaise will be huge as well, I remember him playing his first ITF last year as a U14, and that kid is big, as long as he doesn't get tooooo big I think he'll be fine and have a great career.

Agreed I think Nicaise going be huge as well, he hit the ball so big & hard for his age. I Denis will be pretty good as well hopefully he keep improving. Felix Auger Aliassime I just seen play recently & he pretty good also, hopefully Nicaise Muamba & Felix Aliassime can win the World Junior Tennis Finals

Germany claim titles​

It is just the second time Germany have won the boys’ title and the fifth time Russia have won the girls’ title since the start of the competition in 1991.
The boys’ final started with Nicola Kuhn of Germany taking on Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada. Both players started the match unbeaten in singles and doubles throughout the week, and Kuhn started the stronger, quickly opening up a 4-1 lead in the opening set.
The Canadian fought back to level the set and after that there was nothing to split the two players and the set moved into a tiebreak. Auger-Aliassime held his nerve the better of the two in the tiebreak and won it 7-4.
The second set carried on from where the first one ended, with both players at the top of their game. The crucial break of serve went to the Canadian who had the opportunity to serve the match out at 5-4.
He missed his first match point at 40-30 and then had to save two break points as the German fought back. The Canadian then held another four match points in the game but could not convert. Kuhn took full advantage and broke to level the set.
Auger-Aliassime broke straight back to serve for the match again, but failed to convert two more match points. He finally converted his eighth match point for a 76(4) 75 victory which gave Canada the lead in the tie.
The second rubber saw German Rudolf Molleker face Canada’s Nicaise Muamba. Molleker showed why he is considered one of the top players at this tournament as he stormed through to win 61 62 and draw Germany level in the final.
The biggest story at the start of the doubles was the absence of Auger-Aliassime who was forced to withdraw from the doubles due to injury. This meant that Canadian No. 3, Chih Chi Huang, made his competition debut in the deciding doubles rubber of the final, partnering Muamba against Kuhn and Molleker.
The new-look Canadian duo struggled to find their rhythm at the start of the doubles as the pairs exchanged breaks of serve. The North Americans were the first to settle, however, and took the opening set 63.
The Germans fought back, however, and levelled the tie, taking the second set 62, sending the final into a deciding set in the doubles rubber.
The Germans carried on their momentum, building up a big lead in the final set and held off the Canadian comeback for a 36 62 62 victory and their first title in the boys’ competition since 2001.

REPENTIGNY IS PROMISING EMERGING CANADIAN​

On August 22, 2014 at 19:19 | TVA Sports

Friday at the International Junior Tennis Open in Repentigny, two of the top prospects in the Canadian courts were in action.

Felix Auger-Aliassime Nicaise and Muamba have once again proved that the hopes are founded on them are not in vain. Both players won their first match in qualifying.

Auger-Aliassime defeated Alexi Pinsonneault in two easy 6-1, 6-2. For its part, Muamba Remi Leroux defeated 6-1, 6-4.

These two young people are without a doubt the best players in their age category. They showed so much talent and potential they have already been compared to Rafael Nadal, Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

"I think it's a kind of compliment, if you compare us to the big seeds like that, said Auger-Aliassime. It means we are on the right path. There is still much work to do. "

"It's a compliment and it motivates us to work hard to become what these players are doing now," added Muamba.

The two have already got their hands on junior securities that some current stars of the ATP have also earned their time.

Alexander will present Régimbald Monday on TVA Sports, a full report on these two promising talents
