Robson leads every category from this generation currently. Highest ranked, best slam result, best victory, most tour wins, first and youngest junior winner etc.
Um, it kind of helps that she's also older than all the girls you mentioned, some of them by several years, given she's born in January 1994. Not trying to take away what she's achieved but you need to put it in perspective. Several of the girls are just as good if not better than her, just younger. Vekic reached a WTA final before Robson despite being two and a half years younger. Not to mention several of those girls have won pretty big events, like Svitolina in Pune last week as well as Beck winning some high level ITFs. Robson broke Top 100 when she was 18y4m, Vekic is 95% certain to break Top 100 by around 16y9m, if not earlier, given she has no points to defend until April 2013 and at #109 is around 50 points outside Top 100. Barty is also ranked way higher than Robson was at the same age.
One record that Robson definitely holds over the other girls you listed is the most wildcards received, although I think everybody knows that one
