Re: Youngest ranked player in the world [Q]Belinda Bencic def. [4] Marcinkevia 7-5, 6

This is like a hottest woman in the world thread without pictures. Maybe giving her age would be vital information to the thread.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

I wouldn't get too excited--kids that have been immersed in tennis from a young age and train at academies a gazillion hours a week are going to be good--have to see what happens to her in the next 4 years or so, and even then, you never know....

Re: Youngest ranked player in the world [Q]Belinda Bencic def. [4] Marcinkevia 7-5, 6

good for her for winning a match, but beating a 19yo ranked in 300's and not exactly a top talent herself - is it really a reason for this overjoy?

Vassilissa is my girl............

This would be more exciting if I knew who her opponent was.

Maria Sharapova already won an ITF tournament before she turned 15 years old.

The era of the teen phenom that sets the world on fire has gone. I have never seen Bencic play and really dont know that much about her but if she is going to be doing anything significant then it wont be for a looooong while yet.

There was even a TV show on a teen phenom in the 90s. How times have changed!

Bencic is coached by Melanie Monitor by the way and has been the Swiss number one junior since the age of 11!!!
She also won the U14 Masters last year and a G1 junior event this year already...

Marcinkevica's name isn't even spelled right in the thread title.
