My Wimbledon Juniors Preview; Katerina Stewart Signs with Norton Sports Management; ITA Summer Circuit Begins

I'm getting ready to head to Wimbledon to cover the Junior Championships, so this early post will provide my preview of the event for Tennis Recruiting Network. I haven't been to Wimbledon since 2007, when Donald Young won the boys title and Madison Brengle lost to Urszula Radwanska in the final. Despite a dismal stretch of wet weather at the start, which led to short scoring and very late evenings, it was a good year to cover American juniors. I hope the weather is better and the US performances just as good.

In other news, Katerina Stewart, who will turn 15 next month, has signed with Norton Sports Management. Stewart, the winner of the 14s Junior Orange Bowl in December and the 18s Florida Closed this month, lives and trains in South Florida.

For junior or college players looking for matches in the coming month, check out the ITA Summer Circuit. As tournaments go, they  are inexpensive, and the opportunity to get four or five competitive matches in a short period of time on a college campus is a great combination.  For more on the many events scheduled for this month, see the ITA website.

Baker versus Fish in the quarters at Wimbledon? Too much to hope for? Could happen.

I think Baker is now the favorite to reach the quarters, however, Fish may be in trouble with Goffin tomorrow. Bad combination when you have a guy coming back from injury going up against a guy on the hottest run of his life...not to mention Jo Willy waiting in 4th round most likely.
