Youngest Grand Slam Champions since AER was adopted in 1995 (Martina Hingis and Venus Williams were not affected by AER)

Group A: Age of Young Teenage Guns (15-19 yrs old)

Maria Sharapova - 17 yrs old + 2 1/2 months
Serena Williams - 17 yrs old + 11 1/2 months
Sveta Kuznetsova - 19 yrs old + 3 months

Group B: Age of Mature Guns (20 yrs old and over)

Only 3 players as follows:

JHH - 21 yrs old + 0 months
Kim Clijsters - 22 yrs old + 3 months
Nastya Myskina - 22 yrs old + 11 months


Congrats to Maria for becoming the youngest Grand Slam champion since since AER was adopted in 1995.


The following list of players may have the chance to beat Maria Sharapova:

Sesil Karatantcheva: would need to win no later than US Open 2006 to beat Sharapova (so good luck :wavey: )
Nicole Vaidisova: would need to win no later than Wimbledon 2006 to beat Sharapova (so good luck :wavey: )
Michaella Krajicek: would need to win Aus Open 2006 to beat Sharapova (so very, very, very unlikely)

Any other players can you think of that may have the chance to beat Sharapova? :wavey:

Thought that was pretty obvious.... I'd say Nicky has a shot.... too early to tell though.... but Maria is definitely something special, and will be remembered in tennis history.

Maybe, but not for this.

Sharapova played a lot at a young age, got a lot of WCs and everything. She isn't like Tracy Austin, who burst onto the scene and won a slam at age 16.

I dont think any of the current stars have it in them, maybe Nicole, if she can control her emotions. Maria took a year or so to get where she was when she had that dream run in wimbledon.

Oh and while we are at it, Congrats to Kim Clijsters for becoming the youngest Grand Slam champion since Pope John Paul II's death.

I don't think this is correct.

As far as I know, AER does not count for Grand Slams if a player succeeds in direct entry.

As far as I know, AER does not count for Grand Slams if a player succeeds in direct entry.

The AER severely restricts a players' ability to play on the professional tour below the age of 16. Therefore younger players now lack the experience (and the points) to get into, or get far in the slams at an early age.

That's why it is now a lot harder for a young player to win a slam event.

why Martina Hingis and Venus Williams are not affected by AER ?

I think they turned pro before AER.

Nicole Vaidisova is the only player that has 2 chances yet to beat Sharapova's record... otherwise it will be a long time :zzz: before the record is broken.

Martina won in '97. How was she not affected!

because she turned pro before the AER came into effect, thus wasn't restricted by it.

This is not an issue, though, really. They said that even though Nicole is 16, she can play 21 tournaments a year because she's in the top 20.

21 tournaments a year is far more than players like Tracy Austin used to play. So claiming that AER hampered Sharapova is rather silly. The very reason for the rule is so that players aren't burned out or forced to play too much by obsessive parents. Who knows, without the AER Sharapova may never have won a slam.

Petal if you need to jump through that many hoops to make your player great she isn't. If Shreekapova is great she'll prove it over time but one slam no matter when she won it and what the conditions won't change it.

It's not a record it's a delusion.
