are the 16s age group a lot harder or just a little?

You mean the jump from U14 to U16? From personal experience the biggest difference is going from 14's to 16's. The gap between U16 and U18 isn't as large. Main reason is most kids mature and grow quite a lot between that age group and a lot of the 'pushers' that won in 14's get out served and out played in U16.

Back in the day, the jump from 16s to 18s was gigantic, but now I bet tennis_balla is correct.

i think the 16 to 18 gap is larger, but the 14-16 gap is pretty large

What kind of tournament are you playing? Where do you live? If you are destroying 16 year olds at a beginner tournament...then that's not really saying much.
