British Eleanor Dean, world champion « on: February 06, 2007, 05:40 PM »

We all know British tennis star Andy Murray trained in Barcelona, but did you know another British world champion player (aged 10) plays on the Costa del Sol?

It may seem a bit early to be talking about Wimbledon, but in the competitive world of tennis, there's no let-up in the preparation for the world's most famous tournament.

And what better place to forecast the future of the British game than in sunny Spain, where you can train outdoors to your heart's content.

And making the most of the training facilities at the Marco Tennis Academy in Elviria is ten year old Eleanor Dean, who's been training there for three years and is already the world champion (yes, world champion) in the 10 and Under category. And guess what? She's British!

WooHoo, We could really do with a good female British player. Just have to wait 8 years or so!

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

There's already a couple on their way up... I ain't talking about consistent top 200 players like Keothavong but people like Jade Curtis, Yasmin Clarke and Naomi Cavaday... Hopefully though, we'll see Eleanor Dean at the top of the world ranks in a few years...
