Top seeds secure English double in
It was a second successive double triumph for England in the
European Junior Championships in Porto, as top seeds
Emily Whitlock and Declan James claimed the
titles with straight-game victories in today's finals.
Whitlock, the defending champion, took early control against
second seeded Julia Lecoq of France, taking the first game
11/1. Lecoq came close to levelling, but once Whitlock had
doubled her advantage 12/10 she resumed control in the
third, taking it 11/3 to keep her hands on the trophy.
James' match with compatriot Tom Ford was similar in pattern
with the middle game being the toughest, not that any game
in an 11/8, 13/11, 11/6 win looks exactly easy.
Declan & Tom on Twitter ...
"Emotional moment to win the European juniors today, really
happy with my performance, played well when it mattered #veryhappy.
"Huge amount of respect to @tomford93 we played in great
spirits with a lot of respect for each other, the way the
game should be played," added the new champion.
"Disappointed with how I played today but @declanjames1
really deserved it man," tweeted Ford straight after the
final. "Lets get gold in teams boys!" he added, referring to
the team event in which England are top seeds and defending
champions, which starts on Thursday.

Game was interrupted early in the fourth as Declan's racquet
hit Jan's mouth. Jan was sent to hospital to have some
stitches in his gum and the match resumed some two hours
advance in Porto
English hopes of emulating last year's European U19 clean
sweep were boosted on semi-finals day when three of their
squad made it through to the individual finals and they were
named top seeds for the team event which follows.
The women's final sees defending champion Emily Whitlock
up against France's second seed Julia Lecoq after
both won their semi-finals in straight games, while an
English boys' champion is guaranteed after Declan James
and Tom Ford also won their last four clashes.

Holland falls in Porto
of the top seeds are through to the quarter-finals of the
European Under 19 Championships in Porto, the main casualty
being Oliver Holland, after the English second seed fell to
Portugal's Claudio Pinto 11/4, 11/7, 11/7.
Top seed Declan James was sorely tested too, as he
edged past Israel's Daniel Poleshchuk 9/11, 14/12, 11/8,
7/11, 11/4 to reach the last eight, where he meets
Portugal's Rui Soares.
there are three English and two Portuguese representatives
in the last eight, Belgium are guaranteed a semi-finalist as
Tom de Mulder and Jan Van Der Herrewegen meet
in the quarters.
In the Girls' draw defending champion Emily Whitlock
is one of three Englishwomen in the quarter-finals, which
are scheduled take place later tonight (but there appears to
be some rescheduling going on, stay tuned ...)
Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, England, Estonia
(individual only), Finland, France, Germany, Hungary,

Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Wales.
The French View
profit in Porto ...
The European U19 championships head for Portugal this year,
with English players topping the individual draws as they
seek to emulate last year's clean sweep in Switzerland.
Then, Declan James lost out in the semi-finals before
helping England to team success, but this year finds himself
the top seed, with a final against Nottingham team-mate
Ollie Holland, the second seed, in prospect. Tom Ford
and Tom De Mulder are the 3/4 seeds.
In the Girls' draw, Emily Whitlock is hot favourite
to retain her title, with France's Julia Lecoq seeded
to meet Whitlock in the final.
