First Round of Eddie Herr Qualifying Complete

We're not quite there yet, having made it as far as Jacksonville after our family Thanksgiving celebration, but qualifying is underway at the Eddie Herr. Check here for the results of Friday's first round of qualifying for the 14s, 16s, and 18s. The 12s main draw begins Saturday. The wild cards have also been determined, and only the eight qualifiers remain to be decided this weekend before play begins for the older divisions on Monday.

As a preview to the tournament, which the local papers cover diligently, Mic Huber of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune profiles Gastao Elias of Portugal, the most recent high-profile IMG junior signee.

Also, Marcia Frost has posted her photos of Mark Bey's National Junior Tennis Conference & Training Camp last weekend in suburban Chicago.
