I'll be updating this thread each week (or as often as I can if not so frequently) to reflect the top 50 teens at any given time.

She is.

Quote:
Admittance to the center in South Florida thrilled Min and eased the financial burden of her parents, who immigrated from South Korea. Min’s father repaired shoes for a living until recently and now works in building maintenance. Her mother is a seamstress. Coachable and scholarly, Min is a model enrollee, fitting comfortably in the tennis-intense environment. Her grade-point average is 3.98, the only flaw a first-year B in algebra that she said has haunted her.

Nice thread!

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Donna Vekic is the real teen deal.

That got way too hectic. I think I overwhelmed myself trying trying to look for new highlights almost every single day as well as verify that they were even worth posting. Besides, everybody was sharing new highlights in the latest posts anyway, and some amazing soul PMed me offering to take over updating it so all's well that ends well I suppose.

Yes, there are way too many girls about to turn 20. If I do weekly updates, MLDB will be out of this list in the next update.

Actually it should be Babos Tímea, because Huangarian (ethnic Magyar) names follow the Eastern order (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, etc.), in which the family name is ahead of the given name, just like Zheng Saisai. So you're using different orders on same type of names here.

btw, Saisai's picture is just How about this one?


or this (2010 Youth Olympics)


from left to right:
15. Zheng Saisai (CHN); 19. Daria Gavrilova (RUS); 10. Jana Cepelova (SVK)

Never thought Babos and Mladanovic are only 19, i thought they were Aga/Vika's age.
