Re: Age that players born 1987 onwards broke Top 100

Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino (1992) made the list after the US Open. She broke the Top 100 at 20y5m21d. She is the third 1992 girl to break the Top 100.

Kristina Mladenovic (1993) made the list after Quebec City. She broke the Top 100 at 19y4m3d. She is the fifth 1993 girl to break the Top 100.

So Blue, as the custodian of the data what would you conclude the trends have been since '87? Have players been breaking through at a higher age on average, or is the reverse true?

Re: Age that players born 1987 onwards broke Top 100

For sure players are breaking through at an older age nowadays. As you can see girls like Sharapova and such broke Top 100 when they were 16. Nowadays that's almost unheard of, the best girls of the 1992/1993/1994 group (McHale, Babos, Stephens and Robson) all broke Top 100 when they were 18.

Donna Vekic is now 16y2m and ranked around the #120 mark. She's about 120 points away from Top 100 at the moment. Azarenka, Ivanovic and Wozniacki all broke the Top 100 at 16y11m so I wonder if she can beat them. Although of course nowadays breaking through younger is a bigger achievement. 7-8 years ago breaking Top 100 as a 16 year old was not that uncommon but nowadays doing it before 18 is almost unheard of, that's why Donna is such a rare case. It'll be interesting to see if she can do it.

Yeah, Vekic's run's definitely unprecidented (in this generation). She's already achieved more than players like Robson by virtue of reaching a WTA final already. If she can stick around without burning out or turning out to be a flash in the pan she could do some real damage with the big girls. I'll be keeping my eye on her for sure.

Re: Age that players born 1987 onwards broke Top 100

Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor (1992) broke the Top 100 today at #95. She achieved this at 20y5m20d and is the fourth 1992 girl to break the Top 100

Most likely the next girls to make the list are:

#104 Misaki Doi (1991)
#107 Jana Cepelova (1993)
#108 Donna Vekic (1996)
#110 Olivia Rogowska (1991)
#111 Kristyna Pliskova (1992)
#112 Annika Beck (1994)
#114 Karolina Pliskova (1992)

Re: Age that players born 1987 onwards broke Top 100

How often do you update the career highs in the OP? Do you go over the list each time a new player enters?
I ask because some players records are updated through today whereas others have not been updated for some months, and several players are currently ranked higher than what the OP shows to be their CH.
Here's what I hope is the current list. I think the only status change (top 100/50/20/10) other than the recent ones you've made (Watson, Tatishvili etc.) belongs to Makarova.

Re: Age that players born 1987 onwards broke Top 100

I always add a player as soon as they break the Top 100 but I only update all the players rankings after a Grand Slam. If I remember a few off the top of my head then I probably change a few, but I don't go through the entire list until after a Grand Slam

But thanks for doing it for me! I'll edit the changes in right now

Re: Age that players born 1987 onwards broke Top 100

The 1987-89 Women were breaking through when I first seriously started following tennis. An impressive list compared to todays teenagers. Some of them have more or less fallen off the edge of the earth (Chaky, Rezai) gone down the rankings (Peer) or retired (Golovin, Vaidisova).

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

Annika Beck (1994) broke the Top 100 today at #86 after winning $75K+H Ismaning. She achieved this at 18y8m13d and is the second 1994 girl to break the Top 100

I didn't realise she was so young.
