Petits As 2023

See you at the end of january 2025


Welcome to the Mondial Lacoste Les Petits As: the leading tournament for the under 14s category!

A 10-day event, 42 nations, 350 of the most promising male and female teenage tennis players in the young world elite, of different nationalities, will go head-to-head during this competition.

All of these young players are to be watched carefully because in just 5 years, they will probably be among the great international players, just as other young men and women who competed in Les Petits As before them (Nadal, Federer, Mauresmo, etc…)!

The town of Tarbes is a partner of this tournament that has uncovered some of the biggest stars of the world tennis scene. As a significant partner for the event, the town plays an important role in ensuring the success of this event by providing the organising bodies, financial means, logistics and other important teams. As a consequence, the event benefits the local economy and really puts our town on the map, on an international scale.


Highlights of 2024:
  • Matches, matches and matches!
  • Two exceptional evenings: a free Grand Anniversary Evening (with presentations by the 45 delegations) + a ticketed “Les Années Boum” evening.
  • Lots of entertainment on the Tarbes Town Hall stand


The big winners of the Petits As 2024


Michael Antonius (USA) succeeded Victor Lilov, winner in 2018 and the last American winner, by winning the tournament in the boys’ category. He impressed by only losing 9 games until the final. However, he needed 3 sets to overcome the excellent Izan Baranes Lasala (ESP). Buoyed by a strong US delegation this year, Michael won 4-6, 6-2, 6-0.

Maria Makarova (RUS) follows in the footsteps of her compatriot Anna Pushkareva, who won the title last year. After being broken early on, she quickly turned the match around to win with authority 6-4, 6-3 against her opponent Ksenia Ruchkina (RUS), not losing a set on her way to the title. The two girls are close friends and won the doubles together yesterday.
