Boys to Watch in 2011
Checking the ITF Boysí Rankings there are no apparent phenoms to detect
when looking at the Top Fifty.
There are only three born in 1994 and nobody younger than that. Mathias
Bourgue of France, listed at thirty, showed some promise when he reached
the semi-finals of the Canadian Junior Open.
Great Britainís Liam Broady accumulated most of his points away from the
G1, GB and GA events, still showing at 34 on the ranking list.
Alexios Halebian of the USA may be the best prospect yet as he came on
strong in the latter half of 2010, bowing out to Marton Fucsovics in
three sets at the US Open, reaching the round of 16 at the Eddie Herr
Championships and claiming a semi-final spot at the Dunlop Orange Bowl.
All three so far are missing from the entry list of the Australian Open,
the first big test of the year. Since they, interestingly enough, all
hail from the other three respective Grand Slam Countries one wonders
whether reciprocal wild cards will come into play for any of them.
Daily Tennis News and tennisnews.com is expanding coverage of junior
tennis by concentrating on ITF boys and girls 18s only.
