Nikola Milojevic - remember that name, best junior player of the world ATM



He is best junior player at this moment. How many great junior players were great player later in senior competition?


He will probably be top 10 player in next 5-6 years but will he be #1 like Novak Djokovic - only time will tell.

What do you think about him?

He's the no1 ranked junior in the world, but not the best one atm. Australian Open will tell more though, but he's yet to win something with all the best players participating.

The video doesn't show much. But if Milojevic is top junior then chances are very good. He is fortunate that Novak has a real interest in bringing along talented young Serbian tennis players, so Nikola gets to volley with the World #1. Not every junior gets that chance.

If he's learning to volley from Nole, I'm worried for him

“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.”

Those two need not exclude each other in the Balkans.

Quinzi, Edmund, Kokkinakis and a few others are probably better but just prefer playing adult than junior tournaments

"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.

Yes, he is far from the best junior.

I think Quinzi is actually the best junior player, but I've seen some stuff of this guy and he's pretty legit.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

I don't like Nadal.

He said his goal for this year is to win a junior slam... Nole was barely older when he won his first masters.

“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.”

I'm baffled! Why is he no1 if he's far from the best? And he even doesn't play futures and challengers.
