If their weight/lack of conditioning was an issue and they could not hang on the pro tour I feel they'd get the message easily. It would not be about being "too fat" but more about not being conditioned enough to be competitive.
I think age has to play a part in it as well. Taylor is still young enough to play juniors so I have no problem with her building confidence there, HOWEVER, she does need to kick her training regiment up a few notches and she about 10-15 lbs. She'll have to in order to be successful with her play style.

regardless of the age restricting rules, I detest it because I don't buy into it building confidence(otherwise their would be no reason to keep playing juniors once you've begun on the main tour. And IMHO it could be seen as unfair to the other juniors). Also IMHO, it provides a way out after you've dipped your toe in with the big girls. If they were not allowed to go back, they'd think long and hard about stepping out before they were ready. Maybe I am being too harsh, but it's just my feeling. I'm not one for coddling, or what I see as coddling when it comes to sports.

Re: Taylor Townsend Thread

^ I understand wat your saying & I kinda agree but I agree mostly with Ivan Taylor truly is not ready too jump straight forward into just playing Wta Tour Matches, she will lose badly too players inside top 100 maybe even in top 200 plus her fitness need too be in order first but I will say she could play some Wta tour like how she about too play Citi Open as well as ITF pro event too help her ranking and it be a great learning experience for her, Me too don't have a problem with her playing Juniors I mean she not playing a full Schedule with Junior event she she mostly playing juniors Slam which mostly what player do around her age they mix it up with the Juniors slam and pro Slams & events. Kateřina Siniaková, Ana Konjuh, & Belinda Benčič have talked about doing the same next year all three are Juniors Player atm

I tend to agree with your sentiment. Junior players taking the leap to the pros should be a very serious decision. What makes it a bit difficult for me is going pro with virtually no professional match experience. Its a huge risk if a player isn't ready and a long string of losses could really hurt he player's mentality towards the game, and I don't want that for Taylor.

They probably could make a rule about once a certain amount of points is won by a player on WTA tour, even if they meet the age requirement, they can't enter junior tournaments.
