1st to 7th of July
The Nike Junior International in Roehampton, England is underway and the most promising talents on the ITF Junior Curcuit are getting ready for their final matches on Thursday and Friday! For most players this is the warm up event to Junior Wimbledon, as they play on the grass courts at the Bank of England Sports Club. Therefore all want to get in shape and demonstrate presence on the fast surface to fortify their claim for the following Junior Grand Slam title. However, a win in Roehampton has also proven to be step in the right direction, as in the 24 years of tournament history, previous winners, such as Tsonga, Monfils, Cilic and Kyrgios on the boys side and Mauresmo, Wozniacki, Kvitova and Bouchard on the girls side, have later found their way to enter the Pro Tour and even were able to claim a spot in the world rankings‘ Top 20 for themselves.
