A 17yo who wins wimbledon at the juniors is usually already ranked like 500 in the WR. So he is already a pro player. I'm not sure where 7.0 begins but I would say 500 is at least 6.5.

that guy is not a top junior yet though. he is like 350 in the world but also don't forget he is still young competing against guys 2-3 years older than him.

Of course gasquet won multiple junior slams at age 15 (even took a set off the eventual winner costa in the first round) but that is really rare.
