Heehee, that will be cool!

I worked really hard for the last two weeks, trying to find out the names of kids who could become pros. There are loads of people in the 9-11 year old group who can be good.

I am seriously crippled by geography, so Google was the way to go! w00t

Jonny O' Mara is one brave kid. Surprised

Quote

"I want to be No1," he declares without a blink.

No1 in Britain? "No1 in the world!"

He can be a good player in the years to come if he receives proper training. And I'm sure that he'll be one in the years to come.

He's really young. Smile 

Official site. clap clap   Isn't that really sweet? Very Happy

Interesting thread-as the aforementioned Jonny O'mara's dad, i t's great to see that people are talking about the talented juniors as well as the superstars out there-its one heck of a tough, long, expensive but still exciting road to go!  Some names I would like to put in for the future are a trio of talented 95's from GB who I think will be pushing each other along for a few years yet, namely Luke Bambridge, Mohammed Morsi, and if you'll forgive me Jonny O'Mara. Luke and Jonny will be playing doubles together this year and I think they will have a lot of success as they play like real pro's together very agressive tennis. In their first doubles ever together they beat the Swedish 1 and 2 love and love and looked petty phenomenal. Who will win the big titles between them (or of course the many other good 95's coming through) I am not sure. I think I can also offer some 94's manes too as Jonny as been playing most of them over the last few years though they now move on to u14s competitions and jonny will still play u12 mainly in europe and GB and maybe some u14s in scotland, they are Jathan malik, who won this years Nationals (beating Jonny in the Quarters-no hard feelings) Whistle Jathan is a very athletic and likeable lad, Liam Broady-a very fast and feisty player and add to them Lucas Poelman and Jonathon Cornish as my wildcards.
To understand just how competitive it is even at the age of 11 Jonny was defaulted out of the BMW u12 tournament in germany a couple of weeks ago for mistakenly taking a second toilet break-his opponents parents brought it to the attention of the referee who didn't really want to default for doing something that is allowed at almost all the other tournies but they demanded it-nothing to do with Jonny looking like he was going to win that one-do you think?  And I am trying to teach Jonny to be a true sportsman-not a great example from adults!!

Thank you! Out here at MW we speak about tennis players from all levels. Smile And I'm really interested in youg tennis players.

Some names I would like to put in for the future are a trio of talented 95's from GB who I think will be pushing each other along for a few years yet, namely Luke Bambridge, Mohammed Morsi, and if you'll forgive me Jonny O'Mara. Luke and Jonny will be playing doubles together this year and I think they will have a lot of success as they play like real pro's together very agressive tennis.

Luke Bambridge is a brilliant prospect! Surprised  I was going to post about him very soon.

I hope that Luke and Jonny will click quite well because they are both really promising. Best of luck to the boys.

And Morsi is a good prospect as well. Surprised

I think I can also offer some 94's manes too as Jonny as been playing most of them over the last few years though they now move on to u14s competitions and jonny will still play u12 mainly in europe and GB and maybe some u14s in scotland, they are Jathan malik, who won this years Nationals (beating Jonny in the Quarters-no hard feelings) Whistle Jathan is a very athletic and likeable lad, Liam Broady-a very fast and feisty player and add to them Lucas Poelman and Jonathon Cornish as my wildcards.

Liam is soooo good and Jathan is promising at the same time.

Don't forget youg Louis Watts either, he can be a good player. Smile


To understand just how competitive it is even at the age of 11 Jonny was defaulted out of the BMW u12 tournament in germany a couple of weeks ago for mistakenly taking a second toilet break-his opponents parents brought it to the attention of the referee who didn't really want to default for doing something that is allowed at almost all the other tournies but they demanded it-nothing to do with Jonny looking like he was going to win that one-do you think?  And I am trying to teach Jonny to be a true sportsman-not a great example from adults!!

That's really sad. Surprised  I had no idea that this sort of unhealthy competition existed even at this young a level. Frown

Tell Jonny not to care much about such things. It was through absolutely no fault of his.

Do make him a true spotrsman! He's going to face a lot of such things in the next few years, opponents will use all sorts of tactics to brimg him down, but I'm sure that like true winners always do, he's going to overcome the difficulties.

Thanks for all the welcomes and good wishes guys. Jonny and I will make sure the site is bookmarked and try to keep everyone posted on the latest news from the Junior tour on here and his website and blog. He starts full training after a summer of competition next week-thats 4 days a week of pretty tough tennis but Jonny is a very natural talent and not awfully big yet unlike a lot of his opponents so I feel he doesn't need to be playing constantly, rather quality than quantity, if you know what I mean and I don't want to risk an overuse injury that you see so often in players in their later careers. We are going to visit the Florence academy in a couple of weeks to see the facilities there for a possible future base or warm weather training possibility, though things are happening in Scotland too so we may not have to do the Andy route and spend some time abroad-we''l see how it works out
Competitive Tennis starts early November with the u12Ariel Grand Prix near Nottingham. jonny finished 3rd overall last year in the Ariel Masters series of which the grand prix is the first leg which was  a really great result for an 10/11 year old so his target this year at under 12 proper is to beat that. He'll give it his best shot I am sure.

 :confused:so arka and morgan z are the very same-interesting!

Yep, we are the same. Wink

Going to Florence seems like a brilliant idea to me. clap clap clap   I'm not that much in favour of budding players selecting a base in Britain.

Best of luck for Nottingham.  goodjob    I'll surely follow his progress.  Smile

yes-do keep an eye out for us

Florence is mainly an holiday really but worth looking round whilst there

In the latest LTA rankings out today Jonny has just sneaked number 1 position in GB for 95 birthdates again after having lost it last month which has pleased him but in reality its a small indication only of who or who may  not be a top player in years to come. A lot of the top players did little as juniors-including the awesome Federer himself who was constantly being beat by his compatriots right up to mid/late teens-I think it was Giles Muller who was the big junior star. And of course our own Tim henman was a late developer. Still nice to be numero uno though and a challenge to keep it.

regards

Yep, Gilles was the number one. He attended Sanchez-Casal as far as I know.


And congrats on being the number one once again. clap



Actually I was checking out things about Florence Tennis School the other day. Seems nice.  Do have a great time out there. Smile

Unlike the other boys, of whom I came to know through other sites, I came to know of this boy through Dave O'Mara, so a 'thanks' to him.
