A busy few weeks; US Open junior champion & Davis Cup hero!

Jonas Forejtek has had a busy few weeks.

This has been Jonas’ first major year and hasn’t even played a main draw tour match yet but has been hitting the headlines.

Jonas turned 18 in March and before that started the year picking up the junior boys doubles title down at Melbourne Park with Dalibor Svrcina.

A couple of months after turning 18 the Czech teenager made his second junior appearance at Wimbledon going out in round one again but in the doubles won once again. This win was with Jiri Lehecka also from the Czech Republic.

Jonas who has played all tennis on the ITF circuit then got a big call out for this just gone weekend.

Jonas at the age of 18 made his Davis Cup debut away from home. The team also included his doubles partner from Wimbledon Jiri Lehecka who partnered Jiri Vesely in the doubles but they lost.

Jiri Vesely also played two singles matches losing one and winning the other.

It was the debutant Jonas who opened up proceedings in Bosnia with an impressive 7-5 6-4 victory on his debut.

With the tie locked at 2-2 and a place in the Madrid qualifiers next February on the line it came down to the teenage debutant again to try and win the tie for his country.

He opened up well winning the first set 6-1 before dropping the second on a tie-break. A third and final set to decide the fate and it was a repeat of the first for the 18 year old who has topped off an incredible couple of weeks sending his country to Davis Cup qualifiers on the back of another junior Grand Slam title win.
