Just turned 18.

Side note:
1999 was somewhat special year for future top players. Serena Williams, Justine Henin, Kim Clijsters, Amelie Mauresmo, Anastasia Myskina all won their very first singles titles while Jennifer Capriati won the first (and the second) tilte since her comeback.

Re: Lowest ranked WTA winners (active players)

I have heard that Ivo Majoli was one of them, because i read an article about Kim CLijsters making a big comeback at Indian Wells.

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

Of course she did. But c'mon, Kim was former No.1 while Mirjana wasn't ranked and played her first Tour event. I just wanted to emphasize Lucic' achievement
