the most recent player to play in a Grand Slam 4th round at 15 years old??

in USOpen 1996, Hingis (SF) and Kournikova (R16) both accomplished a rare feat of playing the 4th round of a Grand Slam while still only 15 years old. Is this the most recent example of such a feat as I can not think of any active players that did it.

(there is a bit of a trick answer to this question but its not the example I am looking for)

She's been 16 since December 6, 2006.

Meaning she's about to turn 17.

well in that case there are 2 trick examples, I hadn't thought of Sesile. Obviously her result at FO 2005 can't be officially counted since she was caught using doping at that event.

Golovin just barely missed out. She turned 16 on the same day that she advanced to the fourth round at the Australian Open

actually I think Tanya advanced to 4th round the day before her birthday, when she was still 15, but played the 4th round match when she was 16.
