    That makes me feel bad, those 9 year olds would probably be a tough match let alone the 13 year olds. Gasquet was quite amazing at 13, had a nice backhand then too.

    Great Vids though, all they need now is Federer. None of the guys really served as well, they left their front foot on the ground and never jumped.

    nadals serve looked terrible in those videos, he just makes up for it with all that running and mental toughness...

    Really liked the looks of Nadal's serve when he was 16. More fluid than now. And it's nice to see him playing in that hardcourt/carpet court ;)

    He really moved well back then ;)

    Cool videos, thanks for posting them. Very interesting to see how some of the top guys played back then. I really liked the Ancic one, his net work was really fantastic on that point. LOL at Maria S., she shreiked at 14 years old, too!
