Eddie Herr 16s and 18s Videos; Spain's Landaluce, Russia's Milovanova Win 14U Super Category Christmas Cup Titles

I've started processing my videos from last month's finals in the big Florida tournaments and below are those from the Eddie Herr 16s and ITF finals. Next up will be the videos of the 12s and 14s finalists in Bradenton.

The finals of the first 14U Super Category tournament sanctioned by Tennis Europe were played today at Moscow's Christmas Cup, with Spain's Martin Landaluce and Russia's Victoria Milovanova taking the singles titles. Landaluce, the No. 3 seed, defeated top seed Atakan Karahan of Turkey 4-1 retired. Landaluce also won the doubles title, with Dmitry Bessonov of Russia.  I'm not able to get birth dates for the all these players, but Milovanova was playing 12s last year, so I assume she is a 2007 birth year, which would also account for her needing a wild card and not being seeded. Milovanova defeated No. 4 seed Brit Martin of Estonia 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 in the final. Two other 2007 birth years, Alina Korneeva (Eddie Herr 12s champion) of Russia and Hephzibah Oluwadare of Great Britain, won the girls doubles title.
