March 26-April 1, 2018
JMG wrote history in the spring 2018. Zachery Lim kicked off one of the most successful months for JMG by a big run into the finals of Junior ITF in Newport Beach. This prestigious tournament is rated as Grade 4 ITF.
Historically biggest number of players traveled to Indian Wells to compete in one of the most recognized junior tournaments in the country Easter Bowl traditionally following the BNP Paribas pro tournament in Indian Wells. Out of the total of thirteen players (the largest number of players JMG sent to this tournament) six boys competed in B12 division showing bright and promising academy future. Recent addition Raghav Jangbahadur won the silver ball coming short in the finals against Rudy Quan. On the way to his success Raghav bested number one seed and other quality players in his age group.
Jenson Brooksby flew through the draw into the finals without dropping a set. After an intense three setter Jenson beat the tournament number one seed to claim his first Easter Bowl title in B18 division. This division is also considered the Grade 1B ITF tournament. One of the rewards for Jenson’s success is the wild card into the Junior US Open in August. We look forward to watching Jenson compete with the best junior players in the world.
After winning Easter Bowl in 2017 in G12 division Priya Nelson made it to the quarterfinals in G14 this year. Priya is still twelve years old which makes her result even more valuable.
In the pro circuit Collin Altamirano added valuable points to his ranking in the ITF Futures in Calabasas where he made it to the smifinals. Currently he has reached his carrier high 596 in ATP ranking.
Congratulations to everybody who represented JMG in its one of the most spectacular months.
