American and Russian Players Shine at 42nd Edition of Petits As World Championship

The 42nd edition of Petits As, the unofficial World Championship for under-fourteens, organized in Tarbes, ended on Sunday. In the boys’ draw, where the Americans made a strong impression (there were three of them in the semi-finals), it was Michael Antonius (14 years old since January 1), who looked like Sam Querrey on the forehand, who won the title, losing his only set of the competition in the final, against the Spaniard Izan Banares Lasala (4-6, 6-2, 6-0).

Among the girls, in an all-Russian final, it was Mariia Makarova who won against Ksenia Ruchkina (6-4, 6-3). Makaraova, 14 years old since January 14, has not lost a set all week. Only two French women (Capucine Charcosset and Lina Mislimi) managed to win a match in the final draw, stopping in the second round.
