Wednesday is the round of 16 at the Copa and tournament matches drop to 32 overall. This liberates the west side courts for start of the U14 tournament, which features 24 Boys and 14 Girls, initially in a round robin format. The weather has again been cooperative with glorious sunshine and 24 degrees C. temperatures, and no breeze.

In the Boys draw, the eight matches of the third round found 6 seeded winners, with no. 1 seed Roman SAFIULLIN of Russia coasting to a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Dutchman Tallon GRIEKSPOOR. At the bottom of the draw Joao MENEZES of Brazil, the no. 2 seed, dispatched the game but finally overmatched Rafael COUTINHO of Venezuela 6-3, 7-6, 6-1. Players to watch in the remaining field include unseeded 14 year old Corentin MOUTET of France and Kalman BOYD of USA, both of whom have upset top seeded players on their way to the quarterfinals.

Wednesday round of 16 Girls results situates 5 seeded players into the quarterfinals. Top seed Marie BOUZKOVA of Czech Republic continues to cruise along and now meets the feisty and dangerous Usue ARCONADA of USA. Unseeded Olga FRIDMAN of Ukraine will take on the athletic Emily ARBUTHNOTT of Britain who has recorded lopsided victories over her opponents so far. Aliona BOLSOVA of Spain will meet the unseeded Kelly CHEN of USA who has beaten strong seeded players to win her place in the draw. The last spots in the Girls draw go to Catherine BELLIS of USA seeded 8 and unseeded Mia HORVIT also of USA. Mia has been able to exploit the fall of no. 2 seed Jaqueline Cristian of Romania to win this last spot in the draw.

Afternoon doubles action has been intense as the Boys and Girls Doubles Draws have been reduced to 8 teams apiece. The Boys draw includes three unseeded teams who have knocked off the nos. 4,5, and 8 seeds, while the Girls draw now features the 8 seeded teams as a result of Wednesday’s action. Both draws are up for grabs.
