Cox is playing at the LTA Junior International Championships where he got in as a wildcard. Andy was beaten in the finals by Monfils in 2004.
Cox is currently ranked 238 in the Juniors Combined rankings. His opponent was Christian Vitulli of Kenya, two years older than him and ranked 207 places higher! But Cox won the match 62 64.
(rankings in parentheses)
Michael Dalton(182) lost to Nathaniel Schnugg(50) of the USA 06 36.
Edward Corrie(476) bt Paris Gemouchidis(29) of Greece 63 76.
George Coupland(737) lost to Roberto Bautista-Agut(73) of Spain 46 36.
Graeme Dyce(134) lost to Emiliano Massa(43) of Argentina 76 67 16. I am a bit disappointed.
David Rice(162) bt Sergio Rojas(83) of Peru 63 62. He is our second highest ranked Junior. This is impressive.
Alan Wright(unranked) lost to Jun-Chao Xu(51) of China 67 26.
Harry Skinner(291) lost to Kellen Damico(26) of the USA 64 46 26.
Simon Childs(206) lost to Ivan Sergeyev(12) of Ukraine 26 75 46.
Ian Atkinson(441) lost to Thiemo De Bakker(1) of the Netherlands 36 67. I expected Ian to win a round, but not much chance when you draw the top seed.
Rice gave a good performance, while Corrie and Cox gave jaw dropping ones.http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/tournaments/printabledrawsheet.asp?event=1100072527
At this moment, Cox is much better than almost anyone of his age.
