recently there have been a lot more 13, 14 and 15 year olds at the top of the juniors circuit. krajicek, golovin, julia cohen, kliebanova, kutuzova, krysty marcio, agnes szavay, timea bacsinszky, yung jan chan and nicole vaidisova. all of theses players are in the top 50 except for vaidisova who is ranked #53. there are 4 more players who turn 15 this year or are younger in the top 100. most of them have reached at least the quarter-finals of a grade 1 event or higher. i find this pretty amazing and it makes me wonder whether it is going to be the age group that steps tennis up another notch.
