Re: Is the 1993-1996 generation about to breakthrough?
Annika Beck becomes the second player from 1994 to reach the Top 100. She is now the youngest player inside it as well. Has won five titles this year, including last week at the $75,000 tournament in Ismaning. Also won the French Open juniors and raised her ranking by nearly 150 spots since the start of the year.
If Robson has been the #1 of the players from '94, Beck has certainly been second. It will be interesting to see if she can feature in WTA tournaments next year.
It was a good week for the 93-96 generation. Puig won in Poltiers, beating three top 100 players along the way. Keys won a title in Saguenay, Zheng won in Taipei and Barty won in Traralgon. The likes of Bouchard and Putintseva also beat Top 100 players in the tournaments they played too.
And we have a new addition to the 1995 players inside the Top 250 in Witthoeft, who beat a Top 100 player last week and is the only player from '95 to beat a Top 50 player this year.
