The first was Harry Cohen , who not only won the under-14 tournament but was also unbeaten at under-16 level.

In total he played ten matches without losing one of them.Meanwhile James Faudemer quickly adjusted to the clay courts and went on to win the under-12 title.Team coach Pablo Giacopelli said: ‘These two guys played some fantastic tennis.

It is hard to believe how well they handled themselves on court and the patience they had to show to win their titles.

‘Their tennis skills improved from day to day and by the final I must say that I was proud to be their coach, as I saw them play some scintillating tennis.’Cohen and Faudemer weren’t the only members of the Caesarean squad in a tournament which ran from 4 to 10 August, and which attracted highly-rated players from Germany and throughout Holland.The Jersey contingent were also lucky to be invited, for the opportunity was extended to them through a relationship that was forged in this year’s Nautilus Trust Inter European Junior event.As head coach Giacopelli explained: ‘We were very fortunate to have many visiting teams this year and one of them was from Holland.

‘The team came from a very well established tennis academy in Enschede called Approach Tennis.

This academy is training the top juniors and professionals in Holland and it was through them that we were able to join some of their players in the event at Losser.’The team consisted of Harry Cohen, James Faudemer, Charlie Cohen, Francesca Dubras, Katie Gouyette, Katie Ross, Alex Taylor and Rory Topping.
