Australian tennis legend Mark Woodforde has been appointed captain of the Australian Junior Davis Cup team for 2010.
Woodforde, who with Todd Woodbridge holds the world record for number of doubles titles won, was inducted into the Australian Tennis Hall of Fame during the Australian Open, and in July will be honored by the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island.
Woodforde’s first assignment will be to guide the Australian Junior Davis Cup team of Luke Saville, Jack Schipanski and Jay Andrijic at the Junior Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Asia/Oceania Qualifying, to be held in Kuching, Malaysia, from April 19.
The Junior Fed Cup team is made up of Abbie Myers, Storm Sanders and Molly Polak. Former top 50 player and National Academy Sydney Coach Nicole Arendt will lead the girls. They will prepare for the competition with a three-day camp at Melbourne Park before heading to Malaysia for the event which starts on April 26.
Junior Davis Cup and Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas are international team events for boys and girls aged 16 and under. Regional qualifying events are played in Asia/Oceania, Europe, South America and North/Central America and the Caribbean to determine the top sixteen teams. The top four qualifiers from the Asia Oceania group will go on to compete in the Junior Davis and Fed Cup Final in Mexico in September.
