for those who follow the junior circuit: who are the real talents?
 
Here is the current junior top50:
http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/ran...ode=S&Gender=B

Luke saville from australia is currently no.1. no. 2 is the current FO champ copperjans from belgium. but of course jr. success not always translates to success in the pros.

who do you think is a real talent to be a champ? or do we have to wait for the next or overnext class for the next champ?

does anyone follow the scene and has an opinion?

Kyle Edmund (28 junior, 1319 WR) beat 12th seed WR125 Daniel Gimeno-Traver in Wimby qualifying today.

it would be cool to hear more about, and see, more top juniors in action.

Any junior that has an atp point can be considered a pro and is fair game to talk about in this forum.

There's some big hype around an Italian kid..Gianluca Quinzi.

Probably because he's a Bolletieri offspring like Agassi. Nicki is gonna ruin him for sure.

Yeah, Bollettieri definitely hasn't produced ANY players outside of Agassi, Courier, Seles, Pierce, Maria Sharapova, Hingis, Rios and Haas.

i did a bolletieri program many summers ago, and watching sharapova play brings those memories right back. the whole 'turn around, play with strings, walk back to baseline' following a point was a standardized procedure they had us all perform.

fwiw i preferred saddlebrook/hopman's approach.

Gianluigi Quinzi is 16 and in the top 600, he will be in the top 500 next week.
