Future Stars To Clash At The O2 In November
Six of the best young players in the world will meet at London’s O2 Arena in November to contest the 2016 U14 Invitational Presented By Lacoste. Stefan Leustian of the United States is the first player to qualify for the second edition of the event, by virtue of winning the 2016 Les Petits As, Le Mondial Lacoste tournament.
In the first edition of the tournament, held during the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London last November, Chun Hsin Tseng of Chinese Taipei took the title over Jack Draper of the United Kingdom. The other U14 players who took part in the event were Mathys Erhard (France), Matheus Gozzi de Queiroz (Brazil), Carlos Gimeno Valero (Spain) and Nini Gabriel Dica (Romania).
In 2015, the youngsters played in a round-robin format, with the best player from each group facing off for the winner's trophy. The full player lineup for the 2016 event will be unveiled shortly.
Lacoste has been the official partner of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for the past 15 years.
