Pete was one of the top juniors at age 12/13. By his own account, his coaches and his competitors, Pete was beating everyone early in his Junior career, even playing up. But, as we all know, he took a few years to change his backhand. He talks in his biography and in interviews about how hard to was to go from the top of the juniors and lose against guys he beat regularly (Agassi, Chang, etc). He sacrificed many junior wins for a long term change.
