The 2004 winner and finalists have seem to have taken over the 2003 winners and finalists.

Anna Lena-Groenfield should have won her first title by now.

Lindsay, Amelie, Justine, Nadia, Elena, Nicole, and Martina H. have all won one of the 5 major junior tournaments (4 slams + orange bowl). Maria and Sveta each were in two finals. Not all top juniors succeed on the pro circuit but players that aren't among the top juniors at a young age will likely not succeed.

Yes, 2002 was a very competitive time in juniors with Strycova, Sharapova, Dushevina, Kirilenko, Safarova, Golovin, etc. all playing

I just stumbled upon this thread. It's interesting to see that 2005 proved to be another successful year for juniors.

2005 Winners
AO: Vika Azarenka: Rank:25. She's got 2 WTA finals. Yet to win a title, but she'll win, it's just a matter of time. She's already won a GS in mixed doubles!
RG: Agnes Szavay: Rank:18. 2 WTA titles, 2 finals. Won 2 titles in doubles too.
Wimbledon: Aga Radwanska: Rank:21. 2 WTA titles. Won 1 title in doubles. She's already labeled as "the giant killer". :)
Wimbledon Runner UP: Tamira Paszek: Rank: 41 (best: 35), 1 WTA title. She's the youngest of the 3.

There's another girl worth to mention: Alisa Kleybanova reached RG semis in 2005. She may become another yr 2005 junior to reach WTA elite.

Now, year 2006:

AO: (8)Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS) d. (1)Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) 16 62 63
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova: Rank: 308
Caroline Wozniacki: Rank 52

RG: (2) Agnieszka Radwanska POL d. (1) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova RUS 64 61

Wimbledon: (4)Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) d. (6)Magdalena Rybarikova (SVK) 36 61 63

USO: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova RUS (1) d. Tamira Paszek AUT (11) 36 64 75

2006 was all about Pavlyuchenkova. 2007 started to be her's too (won the AO), but she has pulled the break since. Couldn't reach another GS junior finals (not even semis), and doesn't seem to improve her WTA ranking.

2006 was all about Pavlyuchenkova. 2007 started to be her's too (won the AO), but she has pulled the break since. Couldn't reach another GS junior finals (not even semis), and doesn't seem to improve her WTA ranking.

Pavlyuchenkova was very young when she won these titles. She is still only 16.

But I will be neither surprised nor disappointed if both Wozniacki and Paszek turn out to have a better career :angel:
