Age eligibility changes

Hey there.
I've been wondering where I could find info on how the Age Eligibility Rule changed over the years.
I found the info from 2008 - now, but I've been wondering how it's been before (from 2003). I heard there were changes, but I can't find anything.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Well, it must have changed quite a bit. I mean Capriati turned pro at 13.

Re: Age eligibility changes

For starters, there is a post from 2002 here on TF describing the Age Eligibiliy Rules in details - as they were back then:
Age Eligibility


There are also a lot of references on the internet to The Age Eligibiliy Rules as they were when they were inducted 1994-1995.


Apparently some changes were made in 1997:
