Alejandro Davidovich Fokina
(ESP)  - Current world No. 10Fokina is back! He lost in the finals of the Trofeo Juan Carlos Ferrero tournament last year, so he's looking to close out with a victory this time around. Fokina has graced the world top 10 with an ITF junior ranking of No. 7. He has been in the main draw of the Junior US Open, Roland Garros, and Wimbledon and has made it as far as the round of 16 in the slams. He has also made made all the way to the semis of the Italian Open, (another Grade A tournament -- on the same level as the slams). Fokina won his last Grade 1 tournament and has been extremely active on the futures challenger pro tour, where he consistently makes it to the quarterfinals of the tournaments.

He has made it to the main draw of Junior Australian Open and the semifinals of the Junior US Open for doubles. Bergs lost in the round of 16 last year but has improved wildly since then. He is also on a 13-match winning streak on the junior circuit right now, and it doesn't look like he'll be breaking that anytime soon.

Carr has made it into the main draw of Junior Australian Open and multiple pro level future tournaments. Carr dropped out of school at age 15 to fully commit to tennis, and although juniors is not his focus, he plays a mix of futures and junior events.
