What do you think?
Open era (as I only have stats about that time), singles, main draw, not juniors competition.

Hmmm..... I love Stefanie. But something tells me you're conveniently withholding some pre-Open era stats.....I wouldn't put it past me...I mean, you. ;)

Steffi Graf defeated Carina Karlsson in the first round in 1983 before being fairly comprehensively defeated by Beverley Mould in the second round (by 6-0 7-6). She was fourteen just a few days later.
Far more impressive was Kathy Rinaldi's 1981 debut. Just two months past her 14th birthday she swept to the Quarter-Finals, winning four matces and beating two seeds en-route (Ann Smith -11- and Dianne Fromholtz -8) before losing to the eventual champion Hana Mandlikova.

That Serena most probably withdrew from FO because she had no chance to win and preferred to prepare properly for Wimbledon ..... ;)

BTW, I'm green again - for the moment!

Rinaldi also made it to the Wimbledon semi-finals in 1985, losing to Chris Evert on Centre Court. :D

Don't be too harsh with Selesfan70. He/she is quite nice because he/she supports Condi Rice and Dubya! His/her Selesianism most probably is only an temporary aberration of judgement.
(Or maybe it's genetic ... ?)

I thought Capriati's run in 1990 as a just turned 14 year old to the Semis was most impressive ------- and,I believe, the youngest Semi Finalist at a Slam
