Cadet Boys’ Singles

Abraham Sellado

Abraham Sellado fought off a determined top seed Max Radiven as the fifth seed won a pulsating final 3-2 (8-11, 11-4, 1-6, 10-12, 11-9).

Sellado led 6-3 and 8-4 but saw his opponent fight back to 9-9 in the decider before, finally, Sellado claied his first national singles title, adding to the doubles won earlier in the day.

Sellado defeated his friend and doubles partner Kacper Piwowar in the semi-finals in three, edging the first 13-11 then pulling away to take the next two 11-4 ad 11-5.

Radiven’s semi-final ‘victim’ was Adam Alibhai, and there were few alarms as the left-handed Radiven made it through 11-5, 11-6, 11-6.

Three of the quarters were done in three games – Radiven defeating Pablo Ramirez Rioja, Sellado overcoming Leo Nguyen and Piwowar beating Shahuraj Nimse. It was four games for Alibhai against Angad Saggu.

The last 16 saw a cracking match between Saggu and Prayrit Ahluwalia, which went the distance and saw Saggu shade it 3-2 (11-6, 14-16, 11-0, 6-11, 11-9).

Group stage

The top-ranked players in all eight groups made it through in first place, but there was a stack of upsets behind them, with only two groups seeing the expected outcomes.

Group 6 saw four of the six matches go the distance, with top-ranked Pablo Ramirez Rioja twice coming from 2-0 down – first beating Noah Byrne-Smith and then Janak Shah.

Byrne-Smith’s other two matches also went to five as he lost 12-10 in the decider to Shah and then beat Hill in the fifth. Hill overcame

Shah in four, meaning second place went to countback, and it was fourth-ranked Hill who got the verdict.

Pablo Ramirez Rioja

Group 1 was stacked with three left-handers, and they took the top three places. Third-ranked Jake Davidson beat second-ranked Hugo Nguyen, digging in commendably after missing chances in the fourth to finally seal it 3-2 (7-11, 11-9, 11-7, 15-17, 11-7). That result was instrumental in sending him through behind Max Radiven.

Teagan Khazal rose from third place to second in Group 8, behind winner Angad Saggu. Khazal beat second-ranked Dimitar Dimitrov 3-1 (11-4, 11-9, 5-11, 11-9). Dimitrov was also defeated by fourth-ranked Zihan Lin, the margin in that match 3-2 (12-10, 8-11, 5-11, 12-10, 11-9).

Third-ranked Alexander Graham won twice in the fifth in Group 5, first beating second-ranked Ryan Goodier 12-10 in the decider and then seeing off Sam Poyntz – he was 2-1 down in both matches and his comeback victories to him into second place behind Abraham Sellado.

Third-ranked Sinan Surensoy got above Theo Kniep into the second qualifying space behind Adam Alibhai in Group 4, thanks to a 3-1 (11-8, 11-13, 11-6, 14-12) victory. Fourth-ranked Oliver Tong also beat Kniep, but it was Surensoy’s win which was key to the group’s final standings.

Kacper Piwowar won Group 2, though he was extended by Parsa Yamin to 3-2 (11-4, 11-7, 9-11, 10-12, 11-4) in the final match as Yamin battled to take the second-place calculations to countback.

His earlier defeat to No 4-ranked player Ryan Holland – that was 3-2 (11-8, 11-8, 10-12, 6-11, 11-8) in Holland’s favour – was the result which put Yamin in trouble. Holland also beat the No 3 in the group, Zain Hussain, to make it through to the last 16.

Shahuraj Nimse got above Prayrit Ahluwalia to top Group 7, thanks to a 3-2 (11-7, 8-11, 11-6, 10-12, 11-2) win in the last match of the group, after both had defeated Nishil Shah and Li Hao Chen.

No issues for the top two in Group 3, as Leo Nguyen and Aarav Parihar went through in the ‘correct’ order – Nguyen winning their clash 3-1 (11-7, 11-5, 9-11, 11-4).

Cadet Girls’ Singles

Sienna Jetha

Sienna Jetha claimed her second title as she overcame Eva Eccles 3-0 (11-7, 11-5, 11-8) in the final.

Jetha had a bump in the road in the semi-finals when Brooke Morris levelled the score at 1-1, but the top seed pulled away to win 3-1 (11-5, 9-11, 11-4, 11-4).

Eccles took her place in the final courtesy of a 3-0 (11-4, 11-9, 12-10) victory over fourth seed Alyssa Nguyen.

In the quarter-finals, Nguyen featured in one of the tightest matches of the day against Violet-Lily Marquis – it eventually worked out 3-2 (18-16, 8-11, 9-11, 12-10, 11-9) in Nguyen’s favour.

Seventh seed Morris had to work hard against third seed Hannah Saunders before triumphing 3-2 (12-10, 5-11, 12-10, 6-11, 11-4).

Eccles had a more straightforward 3-0 (11-8, 11-7, 11-7) win over Millie Noble, while Jetha also saw off Alisha Dutta in three (5, 4, 9).

Millie Noble

Dutta really dug in to beat Mauli Shah in the first round, finally winning 3-2 (11-7, 8-11, 11-7, 12-14, 12-10) to set up the tie with Jetha as London Academy players filled the top portion of the draw.

Meanwhile, Noble also had a determined opponent in the shape of Bly Twomey, but she eventually prevailed 3-2 (11-8, 6-11, 11-6, 13-15, 11-6).

Group stage

Millie Ufton was the surprise qualifier, coming through Group 2 from the number four position to go through behind top-ranked Eva Eccles.

Ufton beat both second-ranked Akshita Subramanium (in three) and third-ranked Catherine Lv (in four).

No 2 Alisha Dutta beat the top-ranked Violet-Lily Marquis to top Group 5, the score 11-7, 11-8, 11-9.

The top two in Group 4 played out a five-game match before it went against ranking as Mauli Shah defeated Alyssa Nguyen 3-2 (11-9, 8-11, 12-10, 8-11, 12-10).

Shah was defeated in three by Alisha Kant, while Nguyen defeated Kant in three, meaning a three-way countback was needed – Nguyen topped the group, with Shah second – as expected, albeit by a roundabout route.

Sienna Jetha had few alarms in topping Group 1 with three 3-0 victories, though she was taken to 14-12 in one game by both Maisha Patel and Soraya Rahmani-Walentynska – who finished second to also advance to the knockouts.

Hannah Saunders and Evie Knaapen advanced from Group 3, Saunders topping the group, as expected, with a 3-1 (9-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-3) win when the two met. Assil Sarri had a good five-game win over Kate Smith to finished third – the score 4-11, 11-8, 4-11, 11-3, 12-10.

In the three-player groups, there were no upsets as the top two finished in the expected order – Millie Noble followed by Amber Lemmon in Group 6 and Brooke Morris followed by Bly Twomey in Group 7.

Under-17 Boys’ Singles

Ralph Pattison

Top seed Ralph Pattison became Under-17 national champion for the first time as he defeated Larry Trumpauskas 3-1 (11-8, 9-11, 11-9, 11-6).

Trumpauskas’ semi-final victory was a see-saw affair against Isaac Kingham, the third seed. The victor was down in the decider, but fought his way back to lead 10-7. Kingham saved those three match points, but then served long and top-edged during a rapid-fire rally which followed, allowing Trumpauskas to win it 3-2 (9-11, 11-8, 9-11, 11-7, 12-10).

Sellado brilliantly beat fourth seed Jakub Piwowar in the quarter-finals, coming from 2-1 down to triumph 3-2 (8-11, 11-8, 6-11, 11-8, 11-5).

Pattison needed four as Radiven pushed him in the second and then swept through the third, but Pattison prevailed 3-1 (11-5, 14-12, 2-11, 12-10).

Kingham also took four against Joseph Dennison, losing the first but recovering to win 3-1 (6-11, 13-11, 11-7, 11-4), while Trumpauskas got past Rohan Dani 3-0 (9, 9, 7).

There were no five-setters in the last 16, but a couple of tight four-game matches. Kingham found Joseph Cooper an obdurate opponent, finally getting past him 3-1 (11-6, 16-14, 8-11, 11-9), while Sellado shook off Ben Dunkley 3-1 (11-7, 6-11, 11-6, 14-12).

Group stage

Dimitar Dimitrov – until this week ranked the No 1 Under-11 in the world, had a disappointing Cadet tournament, but made up for it in the U17s by rising from fourth place to second in Group 1, behind Ralph Pattison.

He overcame second-ranked Janak Shah and third-ranked Leo Nguyen to take his place in the knockout stage.

Dimitar Dimitrov

Kacper Piwowar rose from No 3 to No 2 in Group 2 – and he nearly had the top spot. Piwowar defeated No 2 Adam Alibhai in five (11-8, 11-7, 9-11, 8-11, 11-4) and led top-ranked Larry Trumpauskas 2-0 only for the second seed to come back and win it 3-2 – but Piwowar still went through.

Hugo Nguyen beat both Harry Randall and Shahuraj Nimse in five games in Group 5 – the latter having been 2-0 down. It saw the third-ranked Nguyen rise above Randall into second, behind Rohan Dani.

Ben Dunkley was the expected winner of Group 7, though he had to come from 2-0 down to defeat Fraser Massey 3-2 (7-11, 8-11, 11-9, 11-6, 11-4).

Second in the group went to third-ranked Prayrit Ahluwalia, who defeated second-ranked Francesco Bonato in five. Bonato also lost in five to Massey.

Jakub Piwowar and Joseph Cooper made it safely through Group 4 in the expected order, Piwowar winning their clash in four games.

The top two – Joseph Dennison and Fred Jones – finished that way in Group 6, though Jones had to shake off William Hopkins 3-2 (7-11, 11-7, 10-12, 11-7, 11-6).

Group 8 also went as it should, Max Radiven topping the group and Zac Greenhough finishing second – the meeting between the top to in the final match was 3-0 to Radiven.

And Group 3 saw Isaac Kingham and Abraham Sellado finish according to seeding in the top two.

Under-17 Girls’ Singles

Tianer Yu

Tianer Yu added the Under-17 title to the Under-21 crown she won in March as she defeated Ella Pashley 3-1 (11-6, 8-11, 11-8, 11-9).

Maliha Baig had looked in good form all day, but her run ended in the semi-finals at the hands of Yu, who took it 3-1 (11-9, 11-3, 9-11, 12-10).

Pashley and second seed Sienna Jetha had a good battle in the other semi-final, Pashley taking it 3-1 (12-10, 7-11, 11-8, 11-9).

In the quarters, the closest match saw Pashley beat Brooke Morris 3-1 (10-12, 11-9, 11-6, 11-9). Jetha was extended in the third game before overcoming Eva Eccles 3-0 (11-3, 11-7, 15-13), while Yu beat Mabel Shute 9, 4, 4 and Baig defeated Jonabel Taguibao 7, 9, 7.

The only last-16 tie to go beyond three saw Morris recover from 2-1 down to defeat Bethany Ellis 3-2 (9-11, 12-10, 3-11, 12-10, 11-8).

Group stage

Both Eva Eccles and Millie Noble advanced from Group 6 at the expense of top-ranked Mia Lakhani. It was a 3-0 win (11-9, 13-11, 11-9) for Noble and a 3-1 (11-3, 0-11, 11-5, 11-8) win for Eccles, who defeated Noble in three to take top spot.

The top two positions were reversed in Group 7 as Rachael Iles, Brooke Morris and Mauli Shah all finished with two wins apiece.

No 3 Shah beat No 2 Morris by an eye-catching 3-2 (11-8, 8-11, 13-11, 13-15, 11-6) but Morris then beat No 1 Rachael Iles 3-0.

Iles’ 3-0 win over Shah sent it to countback, and Morris topped the group, ahead of Iles, with the unfortunate Shah missing out.

Brooke Morris

No 5 seed Mabel Shute duly won Group 5, but second place went to the No 3 player, Bly Twomey, who beat No 2 Parmis Ahsani 3-2 (11-6, 11-8, 3-11, 6-11, 11-8) and followed up by also defeating Alisha Dutta in five (9-11, 11-3, 4-11, 11-9, 11-9).

Tianer Yu had no problems in Group 1 and she was joined in the qualifying spots by NO 2 Alyssa Nguyen, though Nguyen had to recover a 2-1 deficit before beating Connie Dumelow 3-2 (13-11, 6-11, 7-11, 12-10, 11-6).

Group 8 saw top two Jonabel Taguibao and Bethany Ellis advance, Taguibao winning their meeting in three. It was the same outcome in Group 3, as Maliha Baig won all three matches 3-0 and was joined in the top two by Luna Archard.

Group 4 saw Ella Pashley top the pile, as expected, with Lianna Shilani Tousi in second. Violet Lily Marquis, fourth-ranked, had a good 3-2 win over Evie Knaapen, the number three.

And in Group 2, Sienna Jetha went through with Sophie Ackred, through No 2 Ackred had to battle past Chui-Que Wong 3-2 (11-4, 8-11, 8-11, 11-1, 11-4).
