LOL looks like you'll have to look up the 2002 winner. This site has banned part of her name. the first syllable starts with a D and ends with a 'che'. Bet she sure gets teased in the States/England.

I noticed the name of the gal Ann Kiyomura beat in 1973. I wonder what ever became of her. Probably ended up coaching in some Prague college team or something.

Some hopeless wannabe obviously :)
It's interesting though how so many junior champions are unable to be successful when they turn pro.

Just goes to show..Success (or not), at Junior Level means nothing at the pro level. I mean, Srebotnik beat Clijsters in 1998, and look whose career was better.

Well, what's interesting to me, at least when I compare it to the men's list, is how many more of those names I recognize. There are some true greats, like Martina, second tier greats, like Hana, Tracy and Hingis, and then a lot of players who've had solid careers, all the way back to the '80s, like:

Sukova
Garrison
Zvereva
Mauresmo
Jaušovec

Even recognize some other names, like Paradis, Tanvier, Croft, Rubin. Most of the finals of this decade have had players who've gone on to have decent careers as well.

That's especially interesting given that the women generally turn pro much earlier than the men.

Also interesting that Austin won this most prestigious of junior grass events over - Hana Manlikova, a twice Australian champ open and three times wimbledon finalist in the big leagues. Austin never made it to the semis in either grass slam.

Austin made it to the semis at Wimbledon twice, in 1979 and 1980, losing to the eventual champion both times.
