French Open 2011 – Ranking Review

With the second Grand Slam of the year completed the ranking changes this week will feature significant drops and encouraging highs as the points gained or lost are at their highest values.

Therefore it seems an appropriate time to assess how the ATP and WTA tour rankings look heading into the grass court season and how some of the players being tracked on this website are progressing.

The biggest news, and the main brunt of it in all honesty, comes from the WTA tour.

Heather Watson’s five match winning run which saw her through qualifying and into the second round of the main draw has been rewarded with a top 100 place.

It’s the first time the 19-year-old has been in the top 100 and she has a great chance of getting higher this year as she’s entered the Aegon Classic and Wimbledon should give her a wildcard if she can’t qualify automatically.

Another big mover is Caroline Garcia. The 17-year-old almost pulled off the shock of the tournament after being two games away from beating Maria Sharapova in front of her home crowd but her first round win, with some help from her own wildcard, entry means she’s risen 38 places to #150.

Other young players who’ve made big strides are American Christina McHale, Canada’s Rebecca Marino and Romanian Sorana Cirstea.

Sabine Lisicki is back in the top 100 having made the third round and Vania King has reached #85 which is an increase of 30 places.

In terms of the top 10, there is good news for Petra Kvitova who’s at a career high world number eight whilst the chasing pack of Andrea Petkovic, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Julia Goerges have nudged ever closer to the next level.

Strangely enough it’s China’s Li Na who’s become a superstar at the age of 29 after becoming the first Asian player to win a Grand Slam title. Not many put that bet on two weeks ago but then again the same could be said of last year’s winner and her opponent in the final Francesca Schiavone.

A similar scenario is emerging in the ATP tour in that the titles are being won by older players. There really isn’t a new generation coming through yet in the men’s game with Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and now Novak Djokovic favourites to win every major, masters series and world championship final.

Two of the above are undoubtedly modern-day legends and until they either retire or become awful then the sport will continue to be dominated by them.

Looking to break the dynasty are the likes of Milos Raonic and Alexandr Dolgopolov, who have dropped a place and gained one respectively. They seem to be the only young players with top 10 potential at the present time.

Marin Cilic and Ernests Gulbis had that at one point but the former has gone down six places over the two weeks and 13 places in total from the start of the year. Gulbis, incidentally, has actually gone up five places.

There are other ways of becoming a tennis superstar though. Just making the top 50 these days gets you noticed whilst you can still be big in your home country or continent, which Li Na has proven and Kei Nishikori is still striving for.

The Japanese 22-year-old is down a place but is still up 38 from the start of January. The American situation is also intriguing with their supposed lack of depth but Mardy Fish and Andy Roddick have both returned to the top 10 but youngster Ryan Harrison has moved down three places to #122.

The men’s tour is interesting. It seems to be in different leagues right now. But still, the young players, and even some old where warranted, will continue to be charted here whether that be in the top 10, top 100 or number one in Kazakhstan.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Boys’ Singles Final

America has hope. This is nothing to do with Barack Obama but the feeling of hope around their part-Italian, Swedish-named 17-year-old prospect has risen thanks to his win in the French Open boys’ singles final.

Bjorn Fratangelo

Bjorn Fratangelo, named after six-time Roland Garros champion Bjorn Borg, defeated Dominic Thiem of Austria in a hard-fought contest that went down to the wire eventually taking it 3-6, 6-3, 8-6.

He’s now being talked about in the same sentence as John McEnroe having become the first American to win the boys’ title at Roland Garros since the outlandish legend succeeded in 1977.

The match itself consisted of huge hitting and a great start for Thiem, who took the first set with only one break required.

Fratangelo bounced back with a reverse of the first set scoreline before going toe-to-toe with Thiem in the third. Despite being involved in lengthy games on the Austrian’s serve, Fratangelo couldn’t take his chances and eight aces bailed Thiem out.

The breakthrough eventually came with good timing. At 6-6, the American broke and held to love sealing a great match and tournament victory.

Fratangelo, who turns 18 next month, emerged from virtually nowhere to take the crown. Before the tournament he’d never won a Grand Slam match in his career and entered unseeded.

He overcame 11th seed Joris De Loore in the third round before knocking out Oliver Golding in the quarter-finals to continue his success against the world number four having beaten the Brit in the Trofeo Bonfiglio last month.

It’s given him an increase of 19 positions in the junior rankings to #2 and he now says he’ll be participating in Futures events to increase his ATP World Tour ranking which is well below the top 1000.

For the 14th seeded Thiem, he has been re-instated in the top 10 junior rankings while the 17-year-old sits in the top 1000 of the men’s tour.

And in another tight scrap Spanish duo Andres Artunedo Martinavarr and Roberto Carballes Baena won the boys’ doubles title on a tiebreak which they took 10-5.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Girls’ Singles Final

It was a weekend of historic victories in female tennis with Li Na becoming the first Asian Grand Slam winner and Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur overcoming Monica Puig 7-6 (10-8), 6-1 in the French Open girls’ singles final.

Ons Jabeur (TUN)

The 16-year-old is the first girl from North Africa to win a junior Grand Slam title and has also matched the feat of fellow Tunisian Mustapha Belkhodja who was the boys’ champion back in 1956.

She came close to winning 12 months ago having made the final in 2010 but beat this year’s Australian Open finalist Puig to deny the Puerto Rican a maiden Grand Slam title.

Despite losing in straight sets it could have been very different for the fifth seed as a tiebreak first set turned out to be the pivotal moment of the match.

Both players had chances to claim the set in the 18-game tiebreak. Puig saved set points when 4-6 and 6-7 down and then had two set points herself which Jabeur turned around thanks to a couple of timely aces and a forehand winner.

The ninth seed then came into her element and produced an array of shots in a fine advertisement for specialist clay court tennis.

The drop shot had the most prevalent use and allowed her to cruise to victory, breaking Puig three times and not giving her a sniff of a break back.

Although disappointed now, 17-year-old Puig is enjoying a successful year having won two $25,000 ITF titles which have seen her WTA ranking rise to #314.

Jabeur’s junior ranking has risen to number four after this triumph and with a good record in grass and hard courts she’ll be aiming to increase her WTA position which is currently outside the top 500.

Jabeur joins previous girls’ singles winners such as Martina Hingis and Justine Henin whilst the girls’ doubles winners were Irina Khromacheva and Maryna Zanevska to join the likes Kim Clijsters, Victoria Azarenka and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova who have enjoyed wins in that category in the past.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Semi-finals

The final line-ups for the 2011 French Open juniors have been decided with the two favourites that looked destined to meet in the girls’ singles final both losing in three set semi-final encounters.

Irina Khromacheva (RUS)

Russian second seed Irina Khromacheva had an unbeaten record stretching back to March but couldn’t keep the run going on the Grand Slam stage as Monica Puig won 6-3, 1-6, 7-5.

The Puerto Rican has been in impressive form herself on the ITF circuit and the opening set reflected the players’ current confidence as the pair broke each other several times. Puig came out on top before Khromacheva blitzed the second set despite a first serve percentage of 40%.

The decider lasted more than an hour and the Russian’s continued poor service game allowed Puig two break conversions to seal victory.

Her opponent in the final is not the one the French crowd had hoped for. Their rising homegrown star Caroline Garcia had been a set and 4-1 up against Maria Sharapova last week but she’s struggled in the junior event.

The 17-year-old came back after losing the first set to Ons Jabeur of Tunisia but 12 double faults in the match and her failure to hold serve once in the third set led to her elimination at the semi-final stage with the final score reading 6-2, 1-6, 6-2.

Both Puig and Jabeur have experience at junior Grand Slam finals. Fifth seed Puig lost the Australian Open final in January to junior world number one An-Sophie Mestach whilst ninth seed Jabeur reached the final at Roland Garros last year before losing to Elina Svitolina.

The two boys’ semi-finals also went to three sets but the bad news continued for French tennis as Tristan Lamasine bowed out.

Wildcard Lamasine had surpassed everyone’s expectations by making the last four in his home tournament having failed to make it past the first round last year.

It was a similar situation for his opponent too. American Bjorn Fratangelo had previously never won a Grand Slam match but recent good form on clay means he’s in with a chance of becoming the first US winner of the boys’ singles title at Roland Garros since John McEnroe in 1977.

Fratangelo was clinical with his break point opportunities taking three out of three to win 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 leaving Lamasine wondering what might have been had he taken his other seven break point chances.

Word is going round that Bjorn Borg is set to be in attendance for the boys’ singles match on Sunday (also the day of the girls’ singles final). Perhaps a good omen for the boy named after the Roland Garros legend.

If he’s to take the crown then he’ll have to stop 14th seed Dominic Thiem after the Austrian came back from losing the first set to beat Mate Delic 3-6, 6-3, 6-1.

There was good news for Irina Khromacheva in the girls’ doubles as herself and her partner Maryna Zanevska reached the final. They’ll play Victoria Kan and Demi Schuurs whilst American pairing Mitchell Krueger and Shane Vinsant face Spanish duo Andres Artunedo Martinavarr and Roberto Carballes Baena in the boys’ doubles final.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Quarter-finals

Bjorn Fratangelo British fourth seed Oliver Golding crashed out of the French Open juniors after being beaten by Amercan Bjorn Fratangelo for the second time in two weeks.

In the clay of Milan during the Trofeo Bonfiglio, Golding had been smashed 6-2, 6-0 and in Paris the outcome was to the same degree going down 6-1, 6-1 in just 47 minutes.

Back then Golding vented his frustration on Twitter and this time was no different. The 18-year-old said: “I have to put my hands up and say ‘too good’. When I played him two weeks ago it was the best anyone has ever played against me, but I think he just played even better.”

Not only did Golding lose in singles but he’s out of Roland Garros completely after his run in the doubles also came to an end when himself and Jiri Vesely were beaten in their quarter-final match.

There was some good news for Golding later though when it was announced he had been given a wildcard for the grass court tournament in Queen’s next week. Another young American, Ryan Harrison, was also one of the four wildcards.

For Fratangelo, named after clay-court specialist Bjorn Borg, it’s been a fruitful couple of weeks on the red dirt having reached the quarter-finals of the Trofeo Bonfiglio and now his first Grand Slam semi-final.

The 17-year-old has a great chance of making the final too but seeing off home talent Tristan Lamasine could be a tough task. Lamasine beat German Robert Kern in straights but it was less than straightforward with the wildcard saving three set points in a second set tiebreak before winning it 8-6.

In the other half of the draw, Dominic Thiem became the only surviving seed in the boys’ singles. The 14th seed beat Spain’s Oriol Roca Batalla 6-3, 6-2 and will play Mate Delic who beat another wildcard quarter-finalist in the form of Miki Jankovic.

After five days which saw the the top five seeds progressing in the girls’ singles a shock was finally provided. Top seed Daria Gavrilova played came out worse in a three set encounter with Tunisian Ons Jabeur.

Jabeur now has the chance of making history as the first Tunisian to win a Grand Slam title. She came close last year, finishing as runner-up and will now have the tricky task of beating Caroline Garcia if she’s going to at least match that.

The number three seed came through her match with Yulia Putintseva comfortably and made a change from her tight struggles having almost gone out of the tournament in round two after being match point down.

Putintseva and Gavrilova had been two of three Russians in the last eight but only one made it to the semi-finals and she looks unstoppable.

Irina Khromacheva, Trofeo Bonfiglio winner two weeks ago and unbeaten since mid-March has yet to drop a set in the French Open juniors this year and dispatched of Anett Kontaveit 6-4, 6-1.

At #520 on the WTA rankings the recently turned 16-year-old is already looking like a future star and next to face that imperialistic form is Monica Puig.

The fifth seeded Puerto Rican’s potential classic with fourth seed Natalija Kostic didn’t pan out that way and she came though in comprehensive fashion finishing with a 6-1, 6-3 scoreline.

At #314 in the world rankings of the WTA tour, the semi-final between Puig and Khromacheva could be the showcase of women’s tennis’ next generation.

All the boys’ doubles and girls’ doubles news is also available via the Roland Garros website.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Day 4

If you thought the women’s singles were full of shocks at the French Open then take a look at the boys’ event which just keeps on giving.

Despite starting with 18 of the world’s top 20 four days ago there are only two left. Three of the top 10 boys juniors were knocked out on Day 4 including this year’s Trofeo Bonfiglio winner Filip Horansky.

The Slovakian third seed lost to Austria’s Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-1 and Thiem is now the second highest seed left in the tournament as number 14.

Joao Pedro Sorgi (10) joined Tiago Fernandes (6), Thiago Moura Monteiro (13) and Bruno Sant’anna (16) through the exit doors in a disappointing tournament for Brazil as all of their seeded players were dumped out before the quarter-final stage.

Sorgi was trounced 6-1, 6-1 by Spaniard Oriol Roca Batalla who will now face Thiem for a semi-final berth.

There was mixed fortunes for America as Bjorn Fratangelo beat Belgian Joris De Loore in two tiebreak sets but Oliver Golding of Great Britain also defeated Marcos Giron in the only three set match of the day.

As fourth seed, Golding can now be considered favourite to win the French Open juniors but will now play Fratangelo in a re-match of the Trofeo Bonfiglio quarter-final in Milan where the American destroyed the world number four 6-2, 6-0.

Also through was Germany’s Robert Kern and Tristan Lamasine won the all-French affair between himself and Laurent Lokoli to join Day 3 third round winners Miki Jankovic and Mate Delic.

Oliver Golding (GBR)

The quarter-final line-up in the girls’ singles is laced with quality with the top five seeds all in the frame for a semi-final place.

It was close to being the top six seeds but Anett Kontaveit’s win over Danka Kovinic meant the Estonian became the only unseeded player in the last eight.

The 15-year-old will now play second seed Irina Khromacheva (2), who is on a run of 29 matches without defeat stretching back to mid-March and lasting through junior and ITF events.

An intriguing tie is Monica Puig (5) vs. Natalija Kostic (4) after both came through in three sets while Yulia Putintseva (7) against Caroline Garcia (3) is also set to be a high-quality match.

The quarter-final line-ups in full are:

Boys’ Singles

Miki Jankovic (SRB) vs. Mate Delic (CRO)

Dominic Thiem (AUT) [14] vs. Oriol Roca Batalla (ESP)

Bjorn Fratangelo (USA) vs. Oliver Golding (GBR) [4]

Robin Kern (GER) vs. Tristan Lamasine (FRA)

Girls’ Singles

Daria Gavrilova (RUS) [1] vs. Ons Jabeur (TUN) [9]

Caroline Garcia (FRA) [3] vs. Yulia Putintseva (RUS) [7]

Monica Puig (PUR) [5] vs. Natalija Kostic (SRB) [4]

Anett Kontaveit (EST) vs.  Irina Khromacheva (RUS) [2]

Oliver Golding has also reached the quarter-finals of the boys’ doubles alongside Jiri Vesely and all the boys’ and girls’ doubles line-ups are available via the Roland Garros website.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Day 3

French tennis appears to be thriving in its home country with Marion Bartoli in the quarter-finals of the women’s singles and Tristan Lamasine progressing to the third round of the boys’ singles after beating second seed Hugo Dellien.

The 17-year-old Bolivian had performed well at Grade A clay tournaments this year including reaching the final of the Copa Gerdau and semi-finals of the Trofeo Bonfiglio but couldn’t defeat the home boy who lost in the first round last year.

And the good news continued for the French crowd as Laurent Lokoli’s defeated American Ben Wagland to guarantee a French representative in the quarter-finals with Lokoli playing fellow wildcard Lamasine in the third round.

Elsewhere 2011 Trofeo Bonfiglio winner and third seeded Slovakian Filip Horansky made it to the last 16 along with Oliver Golding (4), Joris De Loore (11) and Dominic Thiem (14).

Qualifier Miki Jankovic has already booked a place in the last eight after overcoming Yaraslau Shyla, who beat top seed Jiri Vesely on Day 1, and joins Mate Delic who pulled off a great win against fifth seed Roberto Carballes Baena.

Mate Delic (CRO)

The top four seeds all won in the girls’ singles but it wasn’t quite straightforward a conclusion as that sounds.

Caroline Garcia showed true grit as she battled from match point down to win a mighty third set 9-7 against Catalina Pella while fourth seeded Serbian Natalija Kostic was also taken to three sets before seeing off Yuliana Lizarazo.

Irina Khromacheva made it into the third round along with her Russian counterpart and top seed Daria Gavrilova who crushed 13th seed Maryna Zanevska 6-0, 6-2.

Joining Gavrilova is Tunisian Ons Jabeur (9) while back in the second round Danka Kovinic (6) won in straight sets but Daria Salnikova (13) lost to American Victoria Duval.

If all this second round/third round crossover is too much then a comprehensive look at the boys’ singles and girls’ singles draws is available via the Roland Garros website who also have the boys’ doubles and girls’ doubles breakdown.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Day 2

The second day of the juniors had a more settled outlook than the opening exchanges as the first round matches were concluded and exits occurred elsewhere en route to the third.

No youngster carried more expectation than Caroline Garcia with the tennis world now keeping a keen eye on her progress to the WTA world number one spot, according to Andy Murray.

She handled it well. The French 17-year-old only stayed on court for just over an hour as she overcame her Russian opponent Victoria Kan 6-1, 6-4. Argentinian qualifier Catalina Pella will be her next adversary.

The notable absentee from the rest of the second round names is Ganna Poznikhirenko after the Ukrainian 12th seed lost to Australia’s Ashleigh Barty.

The 15-year-old came through in an epic battle which saw two tiebreaks going 11-9 to Poznikhirenko and then 10-8 to Barty before she managed to win with a 6-3 scoreline in the third set.

In the second round matches it was another Frenchwoman who had the attention as Estelle Cascino beat eighth seed Montserrat Gonzalez in straight sets.

Her next opponent will be ninth seed Ons Jabeur while some interesting match-ups are already beginning to form in the third round.

Daria Gavrilova (1) will play Maryna Zanevska (14), Alison van Uytvanck (11) faces Yulia Putintseva (7) and Monica Puig (5) has a tricky tie against unseeded Ukrainian Sofiya Kovalets.

The boys’ singles draw is looking wide open with just two seeds through to the third round and only seven left in the whole tournament.

Top seed Jiri Vesely’s exit couldn’t have been a more stunning start and seemed to have set a trend but there was little trouble for the second seed Hugo Dellien who came through his first round match 6-3, 6-2.

There wasn’t such joy for 13th seed Thiago Moura Monteiro though. In a deciding final set which lasted almost two hours, the Brazilian lost 14-12 to French wildcard Laurent Lokoli in his opening match.

It was a bad day in general for Brazil as their 10th seed Bruno Sant’anna lost in the second round to Miki Jankovic (no relation to Jelena).

But perhaps the biggest surprise of the day was Andrew Whittington’s defeat not just for the eighth seed crashing out but the manner in which it happened. It took just 49 minutes for Spain’s Oriol Roca Batalla to seal victory as he crushed his Aussie foe 6-1, 6-0.

Elsewhere there were wins for Viseley’s successor Yaraslau Shyla against the USA’s Shane Vinsant and fifth seed Roberto Carballes Baena also made it to the third round.

A full check of the Day 2 results, scores and match statistics for the boys’ singles and girls’ singles is available via the Roland Garros website.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Day 1

Jiri Vesely (CZE) With 18 of the world’s top 20 juniors in the boys’ draw it was a strong field but already that tally has fallen to 12 as the seeds dropped like flies on the opening day.

The biggest shock by far was the fall of top seed, world number one and Australian Open boys’ champion Jiri Vesely to Belarus’ Yaraslau Shyla.

Vesely claims clay is a good surface for him and he looked right when kicking his tournament off with a 6-4 scoreline in set one. But the Czech was pegged back in the second, losing it 6-1 before being seen off in the decider with a reverse score of the first.

Shyla had only played in one Grand Slam event before this one and the 18-year-old described the win as “perfect”.

Also being taken out was Austrian Patrick Ofner who a week ago had been in the final of another Grade A event, the Trofeo Bonfiglio. His performance in that tournament increased his ranking position 14 places and into the top 10 but he succumbed to one of the players he overtook in Andres Artunedo Martinavarr.

The Spaniard may fancy a decent run after his half of the draw was weakened by sixth and seventh seeds Tiago Fernandes and Mate Pavic’s exits. Fernandes, winner of last year’s Australian Open juniors, was forced to retire against Filip Peliwo whilst Pavic lost at the hands of Lukas Vrnak in straight sets.

Britain’s George Morgan (9) also fell along with Australian Luke Saville (15) but there were wins for Oliver Golding (4), Roberto Carballes Baena (5), Andrew Whittington (8), Joao Pedro Sorgi (10) Dominic Thiem (14) and Bruno Sant’anna (16).

The girls’ singles was relatively quiet in comparison. Russia have been doing well at this year’s French Open so far and that trend continued with first and second seeds Daria Gavrilova and Irina Khromacheva coming through with no trouble.

The only casualties of note were Argentina’s Victoria Bosio (16), the Ukraine’s Kateryn Kozlova (15) and Japan’s Miho Kowase (10), the latter being beaten by 16-year-old Sofiya Kovalets who’s an unseeded danger at 21st in the world.

All eyes will be on third seed Caroline Garcia today as she starts her campaign in the juniors after being two games away from beating Maria Sharapova in the second round of the women’s singles.

To see the results and scores in full then the Roland Garros website has all the details from the boys’ singles and girls’ singles.

French Open Juniors 2011 – Main Draw

The French Open juniors starts today with the main draw missing some decent players who lost out in qualifying.

Qualification top seed and world junior number 45 Frederico Ferreira Silva didn’t even last the first round as Croatian Filip Veger beat the Portugese and then Sweden’s 13th seed Stefan Lindmark in straight sets to book a main draw spot.

He joins fellow unseeded players Gianluigi Quinzi and Aslan Karatsev along with five of the 16 seeds in the boys’ draw which features 18 of the current top 20 juniors in the world.

Of the eight players to get through in the girls’ qualifying four were seeds but such is the magnetism of the Grand Slam occasion, there was an array of highly-ranked players even in the qualification rounds.

Also some of the players only choose to participate in the Grand Slam or Grade A tournaments of the junior circuit as they concentrate on the ITF events and aim to establish themselves on the WTA tour. Therefore even if a player is ranked low on the junior rankings they are a threat.

This is certainly the best time to see the future talents on the big stage. The main draws in full are:
