Harry has recently returned from a 3 week tour in Asia. He played three Grade 1 ITF Junior Tournaments and had some great results reaching one final and two semi-finals. Harry was very pleased with his continued success in 2014, after reaching the round of 16 at the Australian Open Juniors in January. These results have put him in a great position for the remaining of the Junior Grand Slam tournaments in 2014. With these results he can now begin to start focusing on playing more pro level tournament for the remainder of 2014.
In the first tournament in Nonthaburi, Thailand Harry reached the semi-final going down to Petar Conkic (SRB) 6-3 6-7(0) 6-7(3), Harry also made the semi-final of doubles with fellow Australian, Marc Polmans. The tour then took Harry to Sarawak, Malaysia where he reached the final, going down to Duck Hee Lee (KOR) 3-6 6-7(1). He also reached the quarter finals in the doubles, again with Marc Polmans. Finally, Harry moved on to Manila, Philippines where he lost in the semi-final, falling to Ku Keon Kang (KOR) 6-7(5) 3-6. Harry did not play doubles in this tournament due to injury. Harry now sits at 31 in the world for ITF Juniors and 966 in the ATP Tour rankings.
Harry has made his way back to Australia and will be spending time in both Hobart and Melbourne over the coming weeks training with coach Simon Youl and focusing on school before he heads of to Europe, for the European summer of tennis!
