Vanuatu will have 2 representations this month at the first ever Junior Davis Cup in Delhi, India.

Jerome Rovo and Clement Mainguy will head to Delhi soon, after having served Vanuatu Tennis for some time now.

Rovo earned a prestigious tennis scholarship to attend the first Oceania Tennis Federation Junior Development Centre for the South Pacific in Fiji.

While traveling and playing on the future tour throughout Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, he would spend four years representing Oceania in Davis Cup competition.

His experience at the junior development centre in Fiji, earned him a full tennis-scholarship to play NCAA collegiate tennis.

National Junior Player Clement Mainguy and Vanuatu Coach Jerome Rovo will depart on Friday 17th February to join other members of the Oceania Junior Team who will compete in the Junior Davis Cup in New-Delhi, India.

A total of 16 teams will compete in the Asia/Oceania final qualifying events which will take place in New-Delhi from the 20th to the 25th February. The boy’s team is composed of:

Jeremy Guines (Tahiti)

Clement Mainguy (Vanuatu)

Robbie Schoor (Northern Marianas)

Jerome Rove (Vanuatu)-Captain

The Oceania Junior Girls team who will compete also in New-Delhi for the Junior Fed Cup is composed of:

Carol Lee (Northern Marianas)

Naia Guitton (Tahiti)

Eleanor Schuster (Samoa)

Brittany Teei (Cook Island)-Captain

The high level event will gather some of the best junior tennis players from Asia and will be for Clement Mainguy a perfect tournament in view of the 2017 Pacific Mini-Games.

The Vanuatu Tennis Federation wishes the Ooceania players all the best and congratulates Mainguy and Rovo for being selected to be part of this fantastic tour. All the best!
