Re: Are today's WTA teenagers breaking through?

I like how Daria Kasatkina and Jelena Ostapenko had the biggest jumps into the top 100... and they both beat CSN. It is like CSN has become the new entry point for the Top 100

Belinda to crack the top 10 at 18.. Should remain there for at least the next half decade. Just like Caro in 2008.

Disaster year for CiCi. Plagued by injuries and dumb scheduling. Hope she can turn it around next year and not go down the Townsend route...

Re: Are today's WTA teenagers breaking through?

Jelena Ostapenko and Daria Kastakina have now reached the Top 100 after the former reached the final of Quebec City and the latter won a challenger in France.

In other news from last week, Chirico reached the second round of Quebec City, while Osaka qualified in Tokyo, but lost in the first round.

Re: Are today's WTA teenagers breaking through?

Weren't there also 10 teens in the men's side at USO too? I remember hearing there were quite a few, damn the women being overtaken by the men when it comes to youth

Re: Are today's WTA teenagers breaking through?

Update after US Open.

10 teenagers played in the main draw, and the standout this time was Kontaveit, who qualified and reached the 4th round. She has now broken into the Top 100.

From the others, Bencic reached the third round, as did Kasatkina. Ostapenko qualified and reached the second round, along with Konjuh and Dodin. Kulickhova and Hibi both qualified, but lost in the first round.

Dalma Galfi, born in 1998, was the winner of the junior tournament.

Only other update is 1997-born Vikhlyantseva, is now in the Top 250.

Re: Are today's WTA teenagers breaking through?

Belinda Bencic has reached the Top 20 after becoming the youngest player in 10 years to win a Premier 5 tournament.

In other news, Peterson and Sakkari have turned 20, and Townsend has fallen out of the Top 250, so they have been taken off the list. Komardina has joined it.
