Just checked out the early stages of the Adelaide 18/u ITF results and was surprised to recognise the names of many young kids entered. Taking away the four oveseas players I decided to put an age to the remaining sixty via the Australian Ranking list. I was stunned to find four times as many 13 year olds were playing than were 18 year olds ! Here's the breakdown: 18yrs - 2, 17yrs - 8, 16yrs - 21, 15yrs - 12, 14yrs - 9, 13yrs - 8. So where are all the 18yr old Aussies ? I'm all for giving Australian kids the chance of international experience but this does seem a little farcical. For members in other countries is this age grouping normal in your 18/u ITF's?
