Tennis news - Ralph Allen's elite athletes

Millie Bisset has won her first ITF Junior singles title in Finland. She also won the Doubles (with Morgan from the LTA - Lawn Tennis Association - Academy), so all in all an unbelievable week for her. Not many players win these events at 14 years old.
Joe Leather (with Yusuke from the LTA academy) made the final of the Boy’s Doubles in Bahrain so also performed very well. This means Joe has gained his ITF Junior World ranking.
Caleb Ralston lost in the singles semi-final in a very close three sets. This was an achievement given his recent injury, but he will be disappointed not to have gone through. Elinor Bleazly won a round then got a tough draw in both singles and doubles - she drew the #1 seed both times who went on to win the event.
The students move on to United Arab Emirates this week where Joe has to play Caleb in the first round which is a real pity!
Thank you to all the teachers of the above students - the LTA are very grateful for you helping to facilitate these excellent results. Combining elite athlete-level training with tough levels of competition is an incredible achievement.
