We can´t just assume these youngsters fail the moment their career trajectory falls behind those of the accomplished players. Even if they are worse, the current generation will decline sooner or later and someone will have to fill the gap. Although I do not think Milojevic will be the one to do so.

Yea, of course, just a bit weird that he's going to be 18 and half at the end of the year, and barely thinking about pro tour.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Who knows, they might be looking at the ppor performance of young players on the senior tour and think that Milojevic has nothing to gain by playing there until he gains some experience and physical strength. Though it does not make any sense to me either.

junior rankings are based on results in junior tournament, futures and challengers are not taken into account, but they count for the ATP rankings, hence why other guys prefer playing there.

"junior number 1" doesn't mean best junior and has hardly meant anything in recent years.

Besides, he has already played 8 junior grand slams and only once did he reach the QF.

this.

soon he will be dominating the junior dojo a la kramer.

He's not that good. He's the junior tour's vulture, but Kyrgios and Quinzi are far superior players.

ITF ranks Nikola Milojevic as the best junior player at this moment

Quinzi is #2

Another guy from Serbia is #4th - Laslo Djere.

Pretty good for small country like ours.

Yes, but those guys have played less junior events, hence their inferior ranking. On the senior tour they have had decent results.
