No teens in the top 250!

When was the last time this happened?

As per Slasher's live ranking thread, the first 19 year old to appear on the list is Japan's Taro Daniel ranked 282, and the first 18 year old is Luke Saville ranked 349.

Compare this with the era of tennis prodigies seven years back when we had teenage players like Murray, Nadal, Djokovic and Gasquet well inside the top 100.

Dirth of talent or passing phase?

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”
