The only player I have heard of who had serious tennis success without being a top junior or even playing in college is Andrew Lake, who is a serious athlete (D-1 scholarship basketball player) and eventually got ATP points and won many senior tour events:

However, I get the feeling that he did not play but could have won junior events. For example, I remember reading that he was the New York state high school tennis champion even though he spent most of his time playing basketball and soccer.
