Generation Y wants it all quickly

I Think Masha, Ana Ivanovic, Nicole Vaidisova are the best examples of what the tennis "Generation X" wanna do, right now, fearless almost hubristic. What about your examples ?

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

No, generation Y are now in their mid-20s. You are talking about generation Z.

Yoy all are very precise and rigorous. Generation X is a way of talking about the up-and-coming teenager in the tennis circuit

Lindsay is an example of Gen X (and even she is young to be considered an Xer). Graf or MJ Fernandez would be a better example.

Generation Y
n.
The generation following Generation X, especially people born in the United States and Canada from the early 1980s to the late 1990s.

Ana Ivanovic was born in 1987, so belongs to generation Y, even if she's not north american native.
