2004 ITF CHANDA RUBIN JUNIOR TENNIS CIRCUIT
Evert Tennis Academy - Boca Raton, Florida - November 9-14, 2004
November 10, 2004
In the boys singles, nine of the sixteen top players didn't make it to the next round. The quickest uipset was Michael Venus' 6-2,6-1 dismissal of No. 7 Jose Tolentino, though Mariusz Adamski (over No. 11 Augusto Alvarado), Attila Bucko (over No. 16 Gustavo Carvalho), Giorgi Khrikadze (over No. 5 Branko Kuzmanovic), Jonathan Boym (over No. 12 Marcel Goodman) and Davey Sandgren (over No. 15 Gerki Tomita) all had straight set victories over the world's top players.
It was a mixed day for Lindsay Burdette. First, the No. 2 seed was stunned by Lauren Sabacinski, 6-4,6-2 in the morning singles, but later she teamed with sisther Mallory to eliminate the fourth-seeded Lauren Dossor and Laura Peterzan. Laura, seeded eight, also lost in singles to Chelsey Gullickson, 6-2,6-2. The day was not a total loss for Lauren Dosser as she upset No. 10 Marah Calvo in singles, 6-3,7-5. Americans caused most of the other upsets in the girls singles draw -- in straight sets. Among them, Reka Zsilinszka eliminated No. 16 Inga Janine Berman; Kimberly Couts beat No. 13 Jo-Ann Van Aerde; and Magdalena Bresson took out No. 14 Yana Sadouskaya, 6-1,6-1.
Of course the wind was overshadowing many victories today (I saw one player struggling through twelve faults before she could get a serve in the box), there is no doubt that there is a very talented bunch of juniors in the Chanda Rubin event at the Evert Tennis Academy.
