The 2003 junior season will commence this Friday January 10th at the Torrimar Tennis Club. In Boys' 12 singles, last year's #3 ranked Gadiel A. Caban is seeded first, after Alex Lompart and Ricardo Cardona moved up to Boys' 14 . In Boys 14 Cristian Cruz looks to pick up where he left off last year after winning the last tournament of the year (Junior 9). Following Cruz, Lucho Perez Abreu, Alex Lompart, Eduardo Pavía , Arnaldo Pacheco and Richard Zack are the next seeded players.

Oscar Nevarez, Jorge A. Rodriguez, Gustavo Villares and Javier Baerga head the Boys’ 16 category, which promises to be an exciting one. Fransisco Suro, Alexis Lebron and Michael Ortega precede the Boys' 18 Category.

The Girls Category of 18 will undergo some changes; a round robin will be played in this category instead of a single elimination draw. The Girls 16 category is jam-packed with exciting players such as the co-#1 seed Bianca Gorbea and María Calbeto. Finishing the list of seeded players are Elimari Escalante and Manijee Ashrafi.

Looking to better her #2 ranking from last year Paola Calderon is sitting atop the Girls 14 Category with Valeria Couto, Fabiola Rodriguez and Carla Chow close behind. In the Girls 12 category Beatriz Perez looks to open the year with a bang as the top seeded player. Paola Rodriguez, Maria T Aviles, Carol Fernandez and Rocio Portela are the other seeded players in this category.
