Nicole has better record at 15 than Hingis, Seles, Graf or Austin had
Only Capriati in the whole history of the WTA Tour has won her second WTA tournament at a younger age at the age of 15 years and 4 months. Nic just won Tashkent at 15 years and 5 months
The young Czech has a better record than young tennis prodigies like Seles, Graf, Hingis or Austin...of course Nicole has won smaller tournaments but then she hasn't played even the half amount of tournaments that these girls played without the age restriction
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
Nicole will definitley reach the Top20 some stage in the next couple of years. She has done really well on the Tour in only her first few professional tournaments (wins over Golovin, Asagoe and Granville) - and when she plays full time I expect her to have rivalries with Golovin, Ivanovic and Sharapova.
"Gee, Quinn... I hope that little foray of yours into Geekland just now is the result of heat exhaustion, and not an unpleasant side effect of all that tutoring. I mean, you're not turning into a brain, are you?" -- Sandi
Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Whilst Nicole has done very well, she hasn't outperformed those you've mentioned due to the fact they were practically playing the top events immediately. Monica was Houston champion ( equivalent to a tier 2 ) at 15 beating an all time great in Chris Evert, a little superior to Granville or Razzano who Nicole beat in her tier 5 finals I'd sayand was a French Open semi finalist at 15 losing a tough 3 setter to Graf.
Tracy Austin won the Tokyo tournament at 15 which is a pretty big event.
