Caroline was still 16 when she played as a direct entry in Roland Garros and Wimbledon in 2007.

I think you are right- michelle got into both Wimbly and USO on direct acceptance in 2009.

Pretty elite list with de Brito the only one not to go onto bigger things. (So far anyways)

Only the US OPEN, she had a WC for Wimbledon.

And RG of the same year.

Since the new rules concerning the amount of events under 18s can play were brought in (anyone pinpoint a date?) it's unlikely to have happened.

I think Paszek in 07. She was 16 and she made direct to md in the fo, Wimbledon, and uso that year

Latched de Brito 2009 USO appears to be the last time?

Michelle was the last one. Maybe Vekic is next?

Most of these are discounted because they probably got a WC somewhere else to get the ranking points for GS MD.

For other names that haven't been mentioned: Serena, Kournikova, and Lucic also did it more recently than Hingis.

Vaidisova AO 05.

She was 15 then actually. :sobbing:

Nicole's last slam as a 16 year old (2006 AO) was the last time that we had a 16 year old seeded at a slam I think. And not only was she seeded, but she managed to earn a top 16 seed. An absolute tragedy of a career. :tears:
