The 2014 ITF Junior team competitions got under way on Monday 17 February with the Asia/Oceania Pre-Qualifying event for the ITF World Junior Tennis Competition and Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas in Kuching, Malaysia. Junior Davis Cup by BNP Paribas will start on Sunday.

The ITF World Junior Tennis boys’ event sees ten teams competing for the two available spots at the Asia/Oceania Final Qualifying event to be held in New Delhi, India from 21 April - 3 May 2014.

There are seven teams competing in the girls’ event for the two available spots at Final Qualifying in India.

Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas sees five teams battling it out for the two available spots at the Final Qualifying event when the qualified teams return to Kuching from 5-10 May.

It has so far been plain sailing for the seeds as all made it through day one unscathed, with the one exception of the Philippines ITF World Junior Tennis boys’ team. The third seeds lost a nail-biting deciding doubles against Turkmenistan on the opening day of competition.
