The competition returns to the country for a fifth consecutive year, the French Tennis Federation (FFT), organisers of the world's premier clay court event Roland-Garros, in association with the All India Tennis Association (AITA) announced on Friday.
The competition, to be held at the clay courts of the Delhi Lawn Tennis Association (DLTA), will provide a clay court tennis experience to the young talents of India, and promote the same at the grassroots level.
"It has been a dream for me to visit India, and when the French Tennis Federation (FFT) proposed this opportunity, I couldn't say no. I have a huge admiration for young Indian talent, and I am looking forward to working with them and seeing them in action," Henin said.
There will be a total of eight players each from the boys' and girls' categories who will earn qualification to the wild card playoffs of the Junior draws at Roland-Garros 2019 in Paris. The top-8 boys and girls in the AITA rankings will be chosen to participate in the competition.
