Honestly, I don´t like it, when people compare the young girls with Steffi Graf.
Anna-Lena is Anna-Lena and no Steffi, the second.
And I´m getting very careful over the years, to say player soandso become the next superstar of tennis, just because she had few good junior results.
Heike Rusch won the Australian Open 93, Andrea Glass was in the finale of Australian Open 93, Marlene Weingärtner was in two or three Grand Slam finals in her time as junior too.
Last year, same time, all newspapers and fans were sure, that Martina Müller is the next Top 20 player...and where is she now?
So much can happen, so much great juniors stay one- and second roundlosers in the "adult-circuit".
