Off the top of my head I would guess Tracy Austin, Monica Seles, Steffi Graff, Martina Hingis and Jennifer Capriati

Tracy Awesome.... Boy, she was precocious alright. Didn't she finish the year 6 in the world when she was 14?

Heidi El Tabakh Allie Kiick* Monica Puig * Laura Robson * Bernarda Pera *Jovana Jaksic *

Capriati is the youngest ever to break into top-10 according to her profile at wtatour.com.

Kournikova is probably in this list

She was still 16 when she reached top 10 in 1998

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

Capriati was ranked No.9 at 14 years old, I think.


Paszek & Chakvetadze & Vaidisova & Sharapova & Pavlyuchenkova & Vekic.

Re: Youngest players to reach top 10?

The youngest player ever to reach the top ten was Jennifer Capriati of course. She's got all the youngest-ever-records as Navratilova got the oldest-ever-records. The other teens:

1. Capriati
2. Jaeger
3. Austin
4. Sabatini
5. Seles
6. Hingis
7. Graf
8. Kournikova
9. Zvereva
10.Sharapova
11.Bassett-Seguso
12.Vaidisova

(...)

Re: Youngest players to reach top 10?

Guess so. She's not in the list because the list is not from today.

But Nicole Vaidisova is 12th and was 17 years (3 months and 2 weeks). So Carolina is not in the top ten for sure.

Way too old! :-D

Caro has reached the top 10 at a young age but not THAT young. Not sure where she ranks though.

Capriati is the first that came time to mind and she is the youngest.
