2019 Tennis Europe Annual General Meeting in Malta

The 45th Annual General Meeting of Tennis Europe ended on a note of strength and unity, as the regional association sent a message of frustration to the sport’s governing bodies, while readmitting Moldova to the European tennis family following a period of instability for the country’s federation. Contemporary issues affecting the administration of the sport were high on the agenda. Delegates took advan-

tage of several interactive sessions and panel discussions to discuss hot topics such as Davis Cup reform, the forthcoming International Tennis Federation elections, the ITF World Tennis Tour and live scoring/betting with key decision makers. The Open Session of the Meeting featured presentations from ITF President David Haggerty, COO Kelly Fairweather and the Executive Director of ITF Circuits, Jackie Nesbitt.

2019 Tennis Europe Annual General Meeting in Malta The Plenary Session was led by Tennis Europe President Vladimir Dmitriev, who provided his annual report before ceding the floor to the organisation’s CEO Thomas Hammerl. The CEO began by highlighting the importance of recognition from players and agents for the work done by national federations and went on to give an overview of Tennis Europe’s current projects. The Committee Chairs Christiane Jolissaint (Development), Eva-Maria Schneider (Junior Tennis), Attila Richter (Senior Tennis) and Allar Hint (Professional Tennis) then gave updates on each field of activity. Honorary Treasurer David Rawlinson reported on Tennis Europe’s positive financial performance over the past year and the projected accounts and budget were unanimously approved.

Hosted in Valletta by the Malta Tennis Federation from March 29-30, the Meeting saw attendance from 106 delegates representing 41 national federations, just shy of 2018’s record.

France wins third consecutive European Tennis Trophy Tennis Europe has announced the winners of the European Tennis Trophy, the annual awards devised to recognise the performances of players and teams representing the regional association’s 50 member nations throughout the year. The recipients of the 2018 Trophies are as follows:

• Overall Performance - FRANCE • Professional Tennis - FRANCE • Junior Tennis - CZECH REPUBLIC • Seniors Tennis - GERMANY • Wheelchair Tennis - NETHERLANDS

France has secured a hat trick of main titles, winning the award for Overall Performance for a third consecutive year. The win can be attributed to Top 5 finishes in all four contributing sub-categories, and sees France strengthen its position as Europe’s leader in terms of tennis performance. The win draws France level with Russia as the nation to have won the overall prize on most occasions, with 7 each since 1991, when the Trophy was created. France also won the Professional Tennis Trophy for a third straight year with a comfortable lead over second-placed Czech Republic. The Czechs scored a notable win by picking up the Junior Tennis Trophy for the first time since 2001, thereby ending Russia’s 7-year reign in this category. The Trophy rewards a season in which Czech juniors won 4 European team events and dominated the rankings. Two awards are back in the hands of perennial winners: Germany has won the Seniors Tennis Trophy every year and 2018 was no exception, while the Netherlands recaptured the Wheelchair Tennis Trophy, which it relinquished to second-placed Great Britain in 2017 for the first time. Other exceptional performances came from Croatia, the nation to make the biggest leap (from 15th to 6th overall)

and Latvia (rising from 24th to 16th). Meanwhile Andorra can celebrate earning its first ever European Tennis Trophy points. Tennis Europe President Vladimir Dmitriev announced the results, commenting, “The European Tennis Trophy recognises the efforts of players and teams representing their countries, and in doing so acknowledges the behind the scenes work of all the staff at national federations who make these successes a possibility. 2018 was another excellent year for European tennis and we are proud of the continued progress being made, particularly by many of the smaller and developing nations. I’d like to congratulate all nations, but especially our champions, for this renewed vindication of their work.”

FRANCE DRAWS LEVEL WITH RUSSIA AS THE NATION TO HAVE WON THE OVERALL PRIZE ON MOST OCCASIONS, WITH 7 EACH SINCE THE TROPHY WAS CREATED IN 1991. French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli commented, “I am particularly pleased that Tennis Europe is rewarding France once more, for Overall Performance and Professional Tennis. The implementation of the ‘Act and Win’ programme, which sums up my commitments to make the French Tennis Federation an ambitious, hardworking and future-oriented federation, bears fruit. It is encouraging to see that the result of our work in the field of training and the accompaniment of athletes is grounded in continuity and is not the mere chance of an exception. We were so impressed this year by the excellent results of our juniors during the summer and by our first participation in the Youth Olympics, which proved to be very fruitful and rich in teaching for our young players. Europe is a fertile breeding ground that allows many players, rich in their social differences, varied personalities and playing styles to flourish and succeed. It is our mission, our responsibility, as National Association leaders, to put in place the conditions that will allow each talent to express themselves and to flourish.” The awards will be presented at a special ceremony during the Annual General Meeting of Tennis Europe in Malta in March.

European Tennis Champion to be crowned at ATP Hamburg Open The ATP 500 Series event in Hamburg will be known as the Hamburg Open European Championships from 2019, when Tennis Europe, the European Tennis Federation, awards the prestigious title to professional players for the first time. The news was announced by Tennis Europe President Vladimir Dmitriev, Organiser Peter-Michael Reichel and Tournament Director Sandra Reichel at the event’s launch in the German city last month, along with a wave of other innovations. Organisers plan to stage both ATP and WTA tournaments in 2020, allowing for Open European champions to be crowned on both professional tours. Tennis Europe President Vladimir Dmitriev commented, “I’d like to congratulate Mr. Reichel and his team on their ambition and commitment as they work to ensure that this event continues its path to becoming

the world’s leading ATP 500 Series tournament. Tennis Europe’s involvement in top-level professional tennis for the first time is a milestone, but our presence in Hamburg also affords us the opportunity to meet and work with leaders from our member nations at what will be a true festival of tennis and a reference point in the international tennis calendar.” Tennis Europe currently administers over 1,200 tennis events across the continent each year, from the Tennis Europe Junior Tour to ITF World Tennis Tour and Seniors Circuit tournaments. Until now, European Championship events have been held for junior players aged 14, 16 and 18 & Under (and feature over 20 current and former world #1s amongst the previous winners), and for seniors of all age categories, from 35 & Over to 85 & Over. The new event completes the portfolio of European titles.

Klosters to continue to host European Junior Championships Tennis Europe has confirmed that the Swiss resort of Klosters will continue to host the flagship European 18 & Under Championships. The European Tennis Federation’s President Vladimir Dmitriev and Swiss Tennis President René Stammbach signed a three-year agreement which ensures that the event will stay at its traditional home until at least 2022. The Championships have been held in Klosters every year since 1994 (except 2006-2009), during which time they have seen a number of future world #1s in action, including Roger Federer and the first ever champions crowned at the venue; Martina Hingis and Carlos Moya.

Czech Republic & Russia maintain 12&U Winter Cups dominance The Czech Republic and Russia continued to dominate the 12 & Under Tennis Europe Winter Cups by HEAD by claiming victory at the final rounds of the indoor team competition once again. So tight is their stranglehold on both the boys’ and girls’ titles, that in the past four years no other nation has managed to lift either trophy. The Czech boys were utterly dominant, managing to keep a clean sheet during the finals as well as qualifying. Undefeated in this event since 2016 and playing on home soil in Veska, they were too strong for Italy, defeating the visitors 2-0 in the final to take their fourth title. Meanwhile, the Russian girls overcame the Bulgarians, who were playing in their maiden final, 3-0 to also notch their fourth win.

THE FINAL ROUNDS

BOYS: Veska, Czech Republic

The Czechs sent a powerful message to their Italian rivals when Jan Kumstat got his nation off to a strong start by beating Federico Cina 6-0 6-2 in just 51 minutes. Yannick Thierry Ngantcha Lliso put up more of a resistance for Italy in the second rubber, but in the end was not strong enough to defeat Maxim Mrva. The Czech won 6-4 6-4 to seal the win for the home team. With victory confirmed for a fourth consecutive year, the doubles was not contested.

GIRLS: Sunderland, Great Britain

Russia took an insurmountable 2-0 lead in their final against Bulgaria with decisive straight sets wins in both singles rubbers. Alina Korneeva defeated Yoana Konstantinova 6-4 6-1, after which Mirra Andreeva saw off Rositsa Dencheva 6-1 6-3 in just over an hour. Andreeva then teamed up with Dana Pozhidaeva to down Konstantinova & Elizara Yaneva 6-1 6-1 to complete a 3-0 whitewash in the final.

The domination in numbers • The Czech boys have now won the event 4 years in a row: 2016-2019 • They have also won 4 titles overall • The Russian girls have been in 5 finals • They have won 4 titles overall: 2012, 2013, 2017, 2019 • In the past 4 years these powerhouse nations of tennis have split the last eight boys’ and girls’ title between them • 6 of those 8 have gone to the Czech Republic, 2 to Russia

ROAD TO THE FINALS

Czech Republic, Great Britain and Italy celebrate after the final day of the Boys 12&U competition.

A total of 62 national teams took part in the competition’s qualifying rounds, which were held at 7 venues across Europe. The Czech boys went undefeated in qualifying, which they also had the luxury of playing at home, in Hradek and Nisou. In fact, they only lost one rubber - a technicality in the finals of qualifying when they handed Belgium an inconsequential walkover in the doubles, having already clinched an unassailable lead in the tie. Prior to that, they had beaten both Portugal and Lithuania 3-0. In the

final rounds, they defeated Bulgaria and then Romania by the same scoreline before downing Italy in the final. The Russian girls were equally dominant in their qualifying event, scoring 3-0 victories over Lithuania, Latvia and France in Tallinn, Estonia. Off to another strong start at the final rounds, they defeated Slovakia 3-0, before being seriously tested by the host nation in the semis. Great Britain went up one rubber to nil before Russia came back to win the second singles, with Andreeva sneaking past Hephzibah Oluwadare 7-6(5) in the third set tie break of their singles to get things back to 1-1. The doubles went the way of the Russians, and after their scare in the semis, they were in clinical mood in the final, sweeping all three matches in straight sets as mentioned.

France and Russia score 14&U Winter Cups wins France and Russia have won this year’s 14 & Under Tennis Europe Winter Cups by HEAD by claiming victory at the final rounds of the indoor team competition of the boys’ and girls’ events respectively. The Czechs just failed to defend their girls’ title against the Russian girls, who scored a 12th win, avenging last year’s final defeat in the process. So dominant has the team been that it has made 16 appearances in the last 20 finals, and since 2013 Russia has featured in every final except in 2016. In the boys’ competition, France has claimed a first win since back-to-back victories in 2010-11, while Romania advanced to the final for the first time ever at this event.

THE FINALS

Boys (Veska, CZE): France 2 - Romania 0

The French #4 Gabriel Debru (ranked 49) got things off to a flying start, taking out David Alexandru Gheorghe 6-1 6-0 in 51 minutes. His teammate and French #1, Antoine Ghibaudo ranked #13, secured the title by upsetting the fourth-ranked Romanian #1 Mihai Alexandru Coman 6-2 6-4. With the doubles uncontested, the French boys lifted this trophy for the seventh time.

Girls (Rakovnik, CZE): Russia 2 - Czech Republic 1

Urged on by their home crowd, the Czechs had a battle on their hands from the outset. 13th-ranked Yaroslava Bartashevich up-ended the Czechs’ plan with an upset over Brenda Fruhvirtova. The match turned out to be an epic battle, and after three hours and ten minutes the Russian was the victor, posting a comeback 5-7 7-6(3) 6-3 win. This win boosted the Russians’ confidence as 5th

Understandably exhausted and with the win already confirmed, the doubles was not played, handing the Czechs a consolation walkover win.

The Russian girls got their campaign off to a strong start in qualifying in Budapest, defeating Finland then Hungary 3-0.

They saw off their neighbours 3-0 before qualifying for the final over Switzerland, clinching the deciding doubles rubber 10-6 in the championship tiebreak.

Russia sweeps 16&U Winter Cups titles Russia has dominated the field, winning this year’s 16 & Under Tennis Europe Winter Cups by HEAD in both the boys’ and girls’ events. The girls defended their title from last year after coming back from a 0-1 deficit against Belarus. The boys, meanwhile, took the title off the hands of last year’s champions, France. The 16 & Under category is an event in which Russian teams continue to thrive - this is the girls’ 10th win overall (eleven if counting one win as part of the USSR), while the boys lift the trophy for a fourth time.

Boys (Ronchin, FRA): Russia 2 - France 1

Russia’s Igor Kudriashov defeated Joshua Dous Karpenschif in a come-from-behind 3-6 6-1 6-2 win.

Third-ranked Oksana Selekhmeteva got things back on track for Russia, with a straightforward 6-2 6-1 victory over #18 Aliona Falei. The four players were on court again to play out the deciding doubles rubber. In the end, it was a subdued affair, with the Russians proving too strong, taking the match, final and title 6-3 6-1.

ROAD TO THE FINALS In Group C qualifying in Kazan, Russia, the locals were in their element. A 2-1 win over Lithuania followed by 3-0 wins over Italy and Sweden led the Russian boys to qualify in top spot in their group. At the final rounds,

they had scored 2-1 wins in the quarters and semis over Germany and Poland respectively to advance to the final against France. With a bye in qualifying in Kazan, the Russian girls defeated Turkey 2-1 in the semis followed by Germany by the same score line in the final to win qualifying Group C. Russia came in strong in the finals in Brest with a 3-0 win over Ukraine in the quarters. They were handed an easy path to the final against Italy as the Italian team was hit by illness, giving Russia another 3-0 win. A total of 188 national teams were in action over the last month across the Winter Cups’ three age categories. Complete results can be found here

ITF/Tennis Europe Development Championships The 2019 ITF/Tennis Europe Development Championships in Antalya, Turkey were held from 6-15 March. The two successive tournaments saw eight different players from four nations crowned as champions. The Development Championships is a special event, devised to provide high-level international playing opportunities for top 14 & Under players, and in the past has seen players such as Simona Halep, Victoria Azarenka, Grigor Dimitrov and Marcos Baghdatis earn some of their first international ranking points. This year, there were 40 players from ten Tennis Europe member nations in action: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Georgia, Kosovo, Montenegro and Turkey. Top seeded and 19th-ranked Jana Stojanova was the big winner over the two weeks, appearing in all four finals. Arguably the most experienced player in the field, having been a Category 1 doubles winner at Renningen, Germany and a week 1 finalist here in 2018, the player from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia had all the cards stacked in her favour going in to the event and she did not disappoint. She took both singles titles as well as claiming both doubles runner-up trophies. In Week One she defeated her compatriot Iva Jovanova 6-4 7-5 in the singles final, while in the Week Two decider, she saw off Bulgarian fifth seed Aleksandra Gabrovska 7-5 6-2. In the doubles, the Macedonian pairing fell short twice, bowing to the Turkish combination of Ela Sekmen & Duru Soke in both finals. Turk Atakan Karahan was the star of Week One, winning both the boys’ singles and doubles. He defeated second seed Kanan Gasimov of Azerbaijan in the semi-finals before scoring a come-from-behind win over Marko Stoilkovski (MKD) 5-7 6-4 6-1 in the final. He partnered compatriot Anil Ozgur to win the doubles over Bulgarians Pavel Marinov & Anas Mazdrashki. The Bulgarians got their revenge in week two, however, turning the tables on the Turks in the second final. Top seed Marinov also fared better in the sin-

ITF announces plan to revolutionise Seniors Tennis The ITF has announced a raft of innovations for 2019, aimed at increasing the profile of the ITF Senior Circuit. The sport’s governing body has published a Strategic Plan for 2019-2021, which it will implement in pursuit of its mission of making Senior Tennis the leading sport in terms of player participation. The ITF hopes that the new plan will lead to a larger and stronger circuit, providing more playing opportunities to players of all ages and strengths. As part of the process, the ITF is set to explore the creation of the new events and formats, allowing tournament organisers the possibility to stage events with more flexible draws and score formats in order to complete events over shorter time periods. With three-quarters of ITF Senior Circuit players currently participating in 2 events or less each year, the ITF will also introduce a new IPIN fee system which is more beneficial for players that only play a few tournaments each year.

ITF SENIOR CIRCUIT IN EUROPE Europe has traditionally been at the centre of the ITF Senior Circuit, with 300 of the 430 events held in 2017 taking place within Tennis Europe’s 50 member nations. Given the goal of improving the global balance of events, the Circuit’s new tournament structure – to be implemented for 2020 – will have some significant consequences for our region. With regret, and after over 40 years of history, the ITF together with Tennis Europe has taken the decision to change the format of the prestigious European Championships competition. In terms of ranking points, the ITF World Championships will be the highest rated category. Below this, a new Elite Tier tournament series will be introduced, with 1-3 events per region. This will be followed by the well-known major ITF Seniors Circuit events. The previously designated ‘Regional Championship Closed’

Heidi Eisterlehner of Germany is one of the Circuit’s most successful players.

The four main tenets of the Strategic plan are: • Expansion of Seniors Tennis Circuit • Improvements to existing Seniors Circuit tournaments • Renewed focus on marketing, communications and promotion (new Seniors website, new digital services) • Strengthening of the existing World Championships events (RC) status events – such as the European Championships - will now be open to all players from around the world. The upcoming edition of the European Senior Championships will be staged in Pörtschach, Austria, from 1016 June 2019 with the new ‘Open’ format, and is therefore expected to attract many of the best players from around the world. Further information about forthcoming changes - including a revised rankings system - will be revealed by ITF throughout the 2019 season. To read the ITF’s Strategic Plan summary, click here

European Beach Tennis Championships in Bulgaria Tennis Europe has announced that the thirteenth edition of the European Beach Tennis Championships will be staged in Bulgaria later this year. The event returns to Bulgaria for a fourth time and will be held over a four-day period from 5-8 September. It is a closed regional championship on the ITF Beach Tennis Tour, at which players representing Tennis Europe’s member nations compete for men’s, women’s and mixed doubles titles. This year’s event will also feature two ‘Beach Tennis Championships for Juniors’ side-events. The tournaments will be held prior to the main event (2-4 September) with competitions for players aged 14 & Under and 18 & Under. “We are really looking forward to welcoming the players of the European Championships back to Bulgaria for a fourth time. We’re currently finalising all the plans and

want to make sure that this is the best edition yet,” commented Tournament Director Katerina Guenova. Last year’s competition saw a total of 136 players from 21 countries in action.

At the 18 & Under event, all three gold medals were claimed by Italian teams.

The Tennis Europe Junior School has enjoyed a successful launch, with on-site classes delivered at Category 1 events in Tarbes (FRA) and Stockholm (SWE), as well as at the Development Championships in Antalya (TUR). A brand-new new player education programme, the School has been created in consultation with the sport’s governing bodies and is tailored to help inform the Tennis Europe Junior Tour’s promising young athletes about issues that affect them, and to provide them with the life skills necessary for a career in professional tennis. The programme will be delivered at a series of interactive in-person workshops which will run throughout 2019 and are scheduled for Tennis Europe’s biggest events in the 14 and 16 and under age groups. It includes specially-created videos, with advice from experts from across tennis and other sports, including the WTA, ATP, International Tennis Federation professionals, manufacturers, management companies and agencies, plus players of all ages and levels as well as some of the world’s most accomplished coaches. “Player education is something which is a big priority for Tennis Europe, as it is for all the governing bodies within our sport,” Thomas Hammerl, CEO of Tennis Europe explained. “We are in a privileged position to be able to give these amazing young athletes a foundation of knowledge from an early age, which they can build on throughout their careers and as they become more experienced. We see this as part of our responsibility as custodians of junior tennis in Europe.” The Tennis Europe Junior School is the first athlete education programme that specifically targets players in this age group and will focus on making the sessions and the videos as interactive, engaging and accessible as possible. They will cover a range of topics including:

• Anti-doping • Agents and sponsorship • Tennis Integrity • Coaching • Safeguarding • Nutrition and hydration • Support team • Physical wellbeing

Tennis Europe Junior School Tennis Europe worked with London-based sports media consultancy The Emilia Group to create the Tennis Europe Junior School, drawing on The Emilia Group’s extensive experience in junior tennis and in athlete education. “We’ve always been really passionate about player education and we know it’s a passion that we share with Tennis Europe,” said Faye Andrews, Director at The Emilia Group. “We are really proud to be working to help the tennis players of the future as they take their first steps towards being successful and fully-rounded professionals.” Tennis Europe Junior Tour events are the first step for young players outside their home country and are an essential stepping stone on the journey to becoming

a professional tennis player and competing on the ITF, ATP and WTA Tours. The remaining venues for on-site classes in 2019 are: Torneo 16 & Under Avvenire – Milan (ITA) European 14 & Under Championships – Most (CZE) European 16 & Under Championships – Moscow (RUS) European 18 & Under Championships – Klosters (SUI) Tennis Europe Junior Masters – Reggio Calabria (ITA) For more information about the Junior School, or to view the current series of video clips that has been specially created for the programme, click here

Czechs on top at Les Petits As The Tennis Europe Junior Tour’s biggest event Les Petits As celebrated its 37th edition recently with another great week showcasing the best junior talent at the world’s leading 14 & Under tournament.

With a set-up and team larger than that of even some professional tournaments, Les Petits As is a place where juniors can start to feel what it is like to play before large crowds. With interviews, press conferences and photo calls, the players experience a taste of the demands that fall upon the shoulders of a tennis player. This year’s tournament also hosted a meeting of Tennis Europe’s Junior Committee, and saw the inaugural session of the Tennis Europe Junior School, which educates young players about aspects of life as a professional player.

A throng of over two thousand spectators each day descends upon the grounds in Tarbes for a chance to see the stars of tomorrow in action. With areas devoted to the ‘fan experience’ as well as a fervour among spectators jostling for autographs, Les Petits As is not a regular junior tournament. It is an event, and an important stepping stone for players hoping to reach dizzying heights later in their professional careers.

Boys champion Vojtech Petr (CZE).

THE GIRLS’ FINAL The girls’ final was a much-anticipated battle between the Tennis Europe Junior Tour’s top two players. On this occasion, the #1 at the time of writing, Linda Fruhvirtova, was simply too strong for Sofia Costoulas of Belgium. The final encounter lasted a mere 41 minutes, and there was not much that Costoulas could do as her Czech opponent was unrelenting, conceding just one game. Both players had advanced to the final without much drama, but in the end, it was the Czech player who was able to deliver the goods.

The surprises • Top seed and in-form Belgian Alexander Blockx, recent winner in Bolton, was upset in the round of 16 by unseeded Fabio Nestola (GBR). The Brit in turn went down to Antoine Ghibaudo (FRA) in the quarters. • Ghibaudo, a local wildcard entrant, made some noise at his home event, battling his way through to the semi-finals, before falling to the runner-up Nawaf. • German Marc Majdandzic, recent Kremlin Cup champion, was upset in Round 1 by unseeded American Cooper Williams 6-1 6-4. • Riding high from her recent run to two Category One finals, including the winner’s trophy in Ryazan, Elena Pridankina fell in the first round to Italian Anna Paradisi.

THE BOYS’ FINAL In contrast the boys’ final was a tense three-set affair, with the winner’s trophy again falling in to Czech hands. Having dropped the first set, eleventh seed Vojtech Petr broke Rashed Nawaf of Qatar at 4-4 in the second to level the match. A hotly contested third set, full of emotion and grit showed just how much this match meant to both players. There was plenty of gesturing and screaming from both sides of the net to pump themselves up. Crucially, an exchange with the umpire seemed to have spurred on Nawaf, breaking Petr for a 5-3 lead. Some brave shot-making and big winners allowed Petr to immediately break back and eventually take the match to a tiebreaker. A missed Nawaf backhand on match point sealed the deal for Petr, whose 4-6 6-4 7-6(1) victory is the biggest win of his young career.

THE DOUBLES Kyle Kang & Cooper Williams defeated second seeded Blockx & Gilles Arnaud Bailly (BEL) 7-6(2) 6-3 to

lift the doubles trophy. It was a fitting ending for the Americans, who had earlier conquered top seeds Mihai Alexandru Coman (ROU) & Patrick Schoen (SUI) in the quarterfinals. The unseeded pairing of Kayla Cross (CAN) and Katherine Hui (USA) dismissed top-seeded Russians Yaraslova Bartashevich & Anastasiia Gureva on route to the girls’ final. There they met the ubiquitous Linda Fruhvirtova, who teamed up with younger sister Brenda. Unseeded, the siblings blasted their way through the draw to the final and were once again unstoppable as they eased to a 6-4 6-2 win over Cross and Hui. Considering that the roll of honour of previous Tarbes winners is essentially a ‘who’s who’ of professional tennis, it is somewhat surprising that no Czech player had ever won a singles title in Tarbes until now. The Fruhvirtova sisters’ win in the girls’ doubles gave the nation a total of three wins from the four categories.
