since, 1990, there have only been two guys, rafa nadal and richard gasquet in 2002, to win a match before they were 16 and now, 6 years down the line, they are both top 10 players and two of the most promising players on the tour for years to come.
now, 15 year old ryan harrison, has emulated one of the rarest feats on the ATP tour. what do you think about that?
hello hahahaha I like to follow teenagers who are showing up in tennis world arena, that' why my nick. I have viewed Donald Young since he was a brilliant 15, who won a junior Grand Slam at this age. Now Donald, 18eer is 75 in ATP, n 5 US tennis player, and in my opinion the 2008 will see him going to the top 30-40, he has strong potential could reach any level... Meanwhile the japanese key. Nishikori, also 18, won his first ATP tour tournament Delray Beach( defeating in the final Sam Querry )and is to be considered a new 18eer star like Young. He is playing against Blake today in Houston.
Going to the "babies "15eers I have traced 3 outstandig players since last year.
Michelle Larcherde (POR), this year she defeated several top 100. Ryan Harrison ( US ), who made semifinal in junior Australian Open Bernard Tomic ( AUS ,) who won the Australian open.
Now the follow up shows a big result from Ryan, who defeated a good player (125 ATP, number one in ECU ) after qualification round in Houston ATP, really a good news, he is starting to step up !
