There's I think 24 Asians in the draw. :eek: This is the most I've ever seen. Or have I just not been paying attention to the juniors in awhile.

Perhaps :p
I don't pay that much attention too, but surely because it's the Asia Pacific GS would have helped.
Perhaps most Asian junior players can't afford to go to the other slams, so maybe we hardly see them there.

Juniors is mostly about being consistent, and Asian players are good at that. Well, except ErrorNa.

Going forward we're going to have a lot of Asians in the Top 200 and even 100, but probably very few ever in the Top 10.

Asians love money, they got wind that tennis is one of the most highest paying sports, is it any wonder there are many Asians in the draw? They see players like Wozniaki get to #1, so of course they are thinking, why not me?

A lot of Euro/NA players withdrew. Maybe the can't afford to go, while the Asians can.

Most of the top junior players skip the Australian Open. It's way too far to travel and a very expensive trip, considering they don't get any prize money and mostly rely on their federations for financial support. It's always been like that. So, it's understandable that most of the players in the draw are from Asia. It's nearer for them, and there are also quite a few in the junior top 100.

Because of their breeding habits

It has nothing to do with Asians about to become dominate in tennis, or because they play a consistent game for juniors(which I don't even this is true...). A lot of European, and pretty much ALL American juniors have skipped the AO because its not worth the expense.

This. There are only 2-3 Asian girls that are legitimately promising in the draw.

Because many better players can't afford to go to Australia and Asians have inflated rankings thanks to gaining points from local tournaments no one else wants to play.

Only three, including #3 see Saisai Zheng, made it to the 3rd round. None to the quarters.
