Who did Baker play in juniors?

Sorry I need some help finding the answer to this question. I know Baker has been referencing how painful it was to watch the guys he used to play/beat in juniors move on and become Top 20/10 when he left the game. But you can't filter the rankings on the ATP site by birth year (think you can on WTA site).

He was born in 1985, so he was he playing in juniors? Who else is in the '84-'86 range? I think he lost o Wawrinka in the junior French final '03.

Re: Who did Baker play in juniors?

Not going to list them all, but he was the number 2 ranked junior so you can imagine he beat most of them.

Beat Tsonga and Baghdatis on his way to losing to Wawa in the French Open juniors in 2003 I believe.

Monfils, Tsonga, Baghdatis, Berdych, Wawrinka, Tipsarevic and of course The Mighty Boggo.

Re: Who did Baker play in juniors?

No match for the Gooch. Or Todd Reid.

He actually beat a guy I went to school with. Small world.

I thought Monfils was part of the younger generation and played with Murray?

Thanks all!

He partnered with the might Gooch in doubles. That's all you need to know.
