The Age Restrictions
I was reading the thread about the players who achieved the most under 20. It got me thinking, with the current age restrictions on tour, will we ever see any more "Teen Queens" like Hingis, Seles, or Graf were early in their careers? What are your opinions on the restrictions. If a player is good enough to play on the circuit full time, should they be regardless of their age? Is the rule denying them valuable experience that can only be earned from playing matches and thus causing the players to develop more slowly? Or is the rule a good thing, protecting promising young players from going down the path that Capriati did early in her career?
