2004 Junior grand slams - 4 of the 8 finalists wins WTA titles by now

I think It's a great record.

Australian Open 2004 - Shahar Peer def. Nicole Vaidisova 61 64
Shahar Peer - First WTA title in Pattaya (will be rank 36 this week).
Nicole Vaidisova - 5 WTA titles (Seoul, Tokyo, Bangkok, Vancouver, Tashkent) - Rank 13.

Roland Garros 2004 - Sesil Karatancheva def. Madalina Gojnea 64 60
Sesil Karatancheva - No title yet, but was 35 last year.
Madalina Gojnea - No title, rank 258.

Wimbledon 2004 - Katerina Bondarenko def. Ana Ivanovic 64 67(2) 62
Katerina Bondarenko - No title, rank 124
Ana Ivanovic - won WTA title in Canberra, rank 19, (was 16)

Us Open 2004 - Michaella Krajicek d. Jessica Kirkland 61 61
Michaella Krajicek - 2 WTA titles (Hobart, Tashkent), rank 52 (was 43).
Jessica Kirkland - No title, rank 184 (was 151).

2013 Here we go

good luck to all the Israeli girls

Shahar, Its time to have a good year

The 2004 winner and finalists have seem to have taken over the 2003 winners and finalists.

Anna Lena-Groenfield should have won her first title by now.

Lindsay, Amelie, Justine, Nadia, Elena, Nicole, and Martina H. have all won one of the 5 major junior tournaments (4 slams + orange bowl). Maria and Sveta each were in two finals. Not all top juniors succeed on the pro circuit but players that aren't among the top juniors at a young age will likely not succeed.

Yes, 2002 was a very competitive time in juniors with Strycova, Sharapova, Dushevina, Kirilenko, Safarova, Golovin, etc. all playing

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson
