The Aegon Junior International Wrexham
The Aegon Junior International Wrexham, a Tennis Europe 14U event, is underway this week at the North Wales Regional Tennis Centre with a number of British juniors in action.
After a strong week, Jodie Burrage has made both the singles & doubles finals. “I’ve had a great week,” said the third seed in the singles draw, “but I have one more day to go and I’ll really need to hold my concentration.” Burrage plays Ema Lazic for the singles title before teaming up with Ellie-Rose Griffiths in the doubles.
In the boys’ singles final Ewan Moore will play seventh seed Luke Hammond. In–form Moore, who has not dropped a set all week said: “I have been concentrating and my serve has been working well.”
Other Britons to reach the latter stages of the tournament have included Mohamed Abdel-Aziz, Perrin Lawrence, Holly Thompson and Lauryn John-Baptiste.

Last Chance Competitions Page available on the LTA website
A ‘Last Chance Competitions’ page has been added to the LTA website. The page is being introduced on a trial basis to help players view competitions that are near to, or have just passed their closing date. The page will be a useful and easy-to-use tool for players who find themselves available to compete at short notice, or who want to contact a competition organiser about the possibility of being a late entry.
The page will be updated with a list of tournaments on Thursday afternoons, and this information will remain on the page until the following Wednesday morning.
