Vaidisova was born in 1989 so in early 2004, she was 14 going on 15. Her listing in that ranking looks out of place because the AER changed in the 90s. She was one of the youngest to win a title though, I think.

She was almost 15.

Age eligibility rules were in place back then, meaning that younger than 14 years olds were already banned from playing any pro events.

Re: Your Top 5 Youngsters to Watch in 2013

I was impressed by Madison when I saw her on stream at US Open qualies.
I think she should do well next season.
I expect Donna to enter top 100 at the start of year and then it will be interesting if she can consolidate on her ranking.

All these girls are very young still and things can go very wrong for either of them so any kind of predictions can turn out to be wrong.
It's nice to see so many young players do well and I wish they all could have success in 2013 to spice up the tour!

The 12-year-old Destanee Aiava of Australia



She may lack experience, but she's brimming with self-confidence:

''I want to become No. 1 in the world and be the best player. I think I have a good chance of achieving that,'' she says. ''I'm a pretty aggressive player, I have good footwork, I have a lot of strengths. I like to come up to the net sometimes and mix up the play.''

I stumbled upon her, because she is coached by former Czech Wimbledon junior champ Andrea Strnadová, who married Jason Stoltenberg.

Sorry, my poor maths there.

Funny seeing MLDB's name amongst all of the players...

Haven't seen Sara Sorribes Tormo's name thrown out there. 16 year old Spaniard who could Rise up the ranks with a smart schedule.

I agree. But I wouldn't complain if her Slovak doubles partner Petra Uberalova broke through as well. She has certain assets...
