She was either late 18 or early 19. She's 21 now.

Hingis started really early - i seem to remember seeing her KO top players at the big end of year exhibition in Spian (or was it France) when she was 14. She obviously did it early on tour too because she was winning GS at 16. Doubtless Graf had a few successes too given how old she was when she was first number 1.

A month before she turned 19, she was 18 already, but still pretty young.

Sharapova (bt Davenport)
Kuznetsova (bt Henin this year)
The reason the thread was created is due to Maria's upset over Lindsay.
Sveta was 18 I believe when she beat Justine.

Correct, but you are right Spikey, Sveta was pretty young too.
She is the youngest to take out #1 in the world since Dokic's upset over Martina Hingis.

What about Filderstadt 2002:

Casanova d. Henin-Hardenne in 2r
lol, came close, Myriam was 17 and 4 months, and Maria is 17 and 3 months.
So Myriam was still older than Maria is now. But a notable youngster upset tho:) thx

Was Justine Henin top 5 when Casanova beat her though?

A few blasts from the past.

Seles was 16 when she beat Navratilova in Rome 1990 and Graf in Berlin & Roland Garros in 1990. All were finals.

Sanchez Vicario was 17 when she beat Graf at Roland Garros 1989 in the final.

Capriati was 14 when she beat Sukova at Boca Raton and the following week in Key Biscayne in 1990.

Tracy Austin was 16 when she won the US Open in 1979 beating Chris Evert.

I'm sure there are loads more examples.
