16 year old Yulia Putintseva has risen over 400 ranking places in under 3 months!

In May, 16 year old Yulia Putintseva was ranked 655 and now three months later she's rocketed 417 places to be ranked 238. During this period she's won $25,000 Moscow, $25,000 Samsun and $50,000+H Kazan. These are very impressive results for someone of such a young age. She's the best 16 and under in the world by quite some margin. In fact she's probably the best 16 year old since Michelle Larcher de Brito but hopefully (for Yulia's sake) she won't suffer the same fate. She really seems to be on fire as of late. It'll be interesting to see how far she can develop. She's extremely short at 1.56m so that might hinder her at the WTA stage. I've seen her play a few times and have been impressed but haven't watched her since her recent improvement these last few months so I'd love to be able to see how her game has developed. Either way she's definitely one to watch out for in the future. And yes of course I know about her infamous behaviour/antics but that's not really why I'm starting this thread so please keep that talk to a minimum.

Yes, evil Yulia plays some good tennis. Time for the hindrance rule to be toughened up.
On a more serious note, if she continues this way I think by the time she is 18 she will definitely be in the top 100.

Re: 16 year old Yulia Putintseva has risen over 400 ranking places in under 3 months!

But she's an ugly little gremlin and we all hate her cause she hates Lena. I hope we don't get to see her at first level, NEVER.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I wouldn't draw hasty conclusions from her recent success. She has risen so quickly mostly thanks to her mental toughness - see all the comebacks she's done in Kazan. But from what people reported, her ground game isn't exactly extraordinary. It takes her a lot of energy to win matches ŕ la Larcher de Brito. So I wouldn't be surprised if she disappeared the same way as Michelle.
Having said that, this is good for teen tennis.

98% of TF hates her, the other 1.5% doesn't know who she is. Get over it

She's plays good tennis and is a fighter, which is good, but her attitude just makes her deplorable.

She's a decent player. It's just unfortunate that she's an evil little goblin.
