Four representatives of the 'Armadita' in the junior tournament

Alejandro Manzanera, Daniel Rincón, Daniel Mérida and Ane Mintegi are the Spaniards who will compete from this Monday in the junior tournaments.


Spain or as we like to call them in AS, the Armadita, will have at least four representatives in the individual draws of the junior tournament at Wimbledon. Three of them competed less than two months ago at Roland Garros, Daniel Rincón, Daniel Mérida and Ane Mintegi, and another made his debut in Grand Slams, Alejandro Manzanero, who was champion of the Mutua Madrid Open Sub-16 two years ago by winning in the end precisely to Mérida. And Miguel Pérez Pena will try to qualify in the previous one.

The competition starts on Monday and the Spanish already know who their rivals will be. The 18-year-old Rincón from Avila and sixth seed, who reached the quarterfinals in Paris, like Mérida, will face British guest Roan Jones in the first round. Madrid's Mérida, who is only 16, will face Czech Vojtech Petr. While Manzanero, Valencian from Almoradí of 18 and 15th favorite, will run into the Hong Kong-born Coleman Wong.

Mintegi, for his part, a 17-year-old from San Sebastian, will face the Italian Eleanora Alvisi in the last season in which he will compete as a junior.
