Keegan Rice’s tremendous results at the recent Under-16 Fischer Indoor Junior Nationals have given him the opportunity to represent Canada at the upcoming Junior Davis Cup Qualifying Event. The qualifying event will take place in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico from May 3-8, 2022.
Launched by the ITF as the ‘World Youth Cup’ in 1985, the International Team Competition for players aged 16 and under was re-branded as the Junior Davis Cup and Fed Cup by BNP Paribas as part of a partnership with the bank in the 2000s. The girls event received a further name change – to Junior Billie Jean King Cup – in 2020 to match the women’s competition. Russia’s boys and Czech Republic’s girls are the current title holders.
