Who's the Next great youngster?

I haven't really heard of any great juniors for a while now.

Azarenka has been touted as a great prospect, but she's already playing the tour. Same goes for Wozniacki.

Anybody know any 14 year-olds starting to emerge?

Alexis Jones, duh. Haven't you heard? She has had her own website since she was 3 and a half. Her daddy updates it every day ...

Well if you look at it, while there are many 18 and 19 year-olds entering the top 50, breaking into the top five, or even the top ten, before the age of 20 is getting very difficult.

It seems that just one junior player every two years or more actually has what it takes to get into the top five before the age of 20.

2004-05 Possibly Vaidisova?
2002-03 Sharapova
2000-01 Kuznetsova
1998-99 Clijsters/Henin
1996-97 Hingis (bearing in mind she was still junior age)/Venus/Serena

Well, unless she's particularly high in the under 12s, I don't think there's any reason to think she'll be a star. Elke Clijsters also played tennis, as did Jeanne Evert.

Most of the best juniors are starting to play pro events, i.e. Azarenka, Wozniacki, and Pavlyuchenkova.

Pavlyuchenkova and Wozniacki are the best on the junior circuit, imo.

As a 10 y.o. she's already won a G14, and strings of G12's.
