Bumping myself here to again ask TCF the question in response to his earlier statement. I'm not really clear exactly what his definitions are?
If DB (or anyone else) won the Junior AO at 18 yrs old 2 years from now, would that be precocious or would it have to be at 16 or 15?
Would the kid have to be playing the pros at 13 or 15 like Graf or Nadal?
How long/how many years of playing futures and challengers would be straight to the pros? Would it have to be like McEnroe who was playing both the juniors and the main event at the majors?
