Anyone following the juniors? Any good players out there with senior
potential? Apart from Tomic of course. I have heard rumors about a great
player from Guatemala, Uriguen. He is in the semis.

PS.

Don't know, really. The 1st and 2nd seeds, Bhambri from India and
Uriguen, both have been advancing with relative ease.

Googled both and found a video of Bhambri. Nice. They're both apparently
of the usual hard/clay mold. And both are at around 170cm also rather
short ...

Now that Henri Kontinen is too old for juniors, we have another
promising Finnish guy, Henri Laaksonen. He is under-16 European
Champion last year (list of champions over the years is impressive).
At AO in the 2nd round he had a slight leg injury in the 3rd set and
lost the 3rd set 5-7 to a French guy who is now in semis.

I notice the top seeded girl is from Thailand and the top seeded boy
is from India. Unusual.

I like the ITF Junior World Champions:

2000 Andy Roddick
1999 Kristian Pless
1998 Roger Federer

Spot the odd one out.

What's with Pless?

Take a deep breath, take a walk, cool off, plot a bit, and serve again.
