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.

Yes but will she have a better record than the likes of Seles and Hingis at age 16 ?

Impressive record nonetheless - she looks like she's destined for greatness.

if she wins the Australian Open, she will be the youngest ever slam winner, no?

You cant compare Nicole to the others, the tour was so much easier back then. The pace today is in a totally different league and for Nicole to be doing this well is amazing!

Yeah the tour when Monica came onto the scene was "very easy" You just had Graf , Navratilova , Sabatini , Jennifer and other such no-name players

LOL Monica was kicking ass when Hingis won all those slams. The tour was never so much easier when Monica was around .

Monica beat Chris Evert to win her first WTA Tour title at age 15.

Martina Hingis won her first title in Filderstadt (a Tier II) beating Top-10 player Anke Huber in the final and her second title beating Monica Seles 6-2, 6-0 in the Oakland final.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

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.
