Flashback : ATP Juniors 2000 year end top 20 ranking - Where are they now?

I found this 2000 year end top 20 for the juniors on the net and honestly, half the names mean nothing to me. It's a big step from success the juniors to success in the seniors but what any stories on what happened to some of these guys? Here's the rankings :

1. Andrew Roddick (USA) : The rankings say Andrew. Honestly
2. Todor Enev (BUL) : Orange Bowl winner and then.......?
3. Joachim Johansson (SWE) : Done pretty well so far
4. Mario Ancic (CRO) : Davis Cup winner and still rising.
5. Nicolas Mahut (FRA) : At a career high ranking.
6. Ytai Abougzir (USA) :
7. Roman Valent (SUI) : One of 2 Swiss in top 20...
8. Yen-Hsun Lu (TPE) : Ranked 119 and still on tour
9. Adrian Cruciat (ROM) :
10. Bruno Soares (BRA) :
11. Janko Tipsarevic (YUG) : Serbian now, and ranked 114
12. Andriy Dernovskyy (UKR) :
13. Alejandro Falla Ramirez (COL) : Ranked 128
14. Robby Ginepri (USA) : Career best year in 2005
15. Michael Lammer (SUI) : Ranked 250 but played Davis Cup this year
16. Simon Stadler (GER) :
17. Michael Kokta (CZE) :
18. Cristian Villagran (ARG) :
19. Yeu-Tzuoo Wang (TPE) : Hit a career high 86 this year
20. Stefan Weispeiner (AUT) :

Andrew Roddick was also number 3 in doubles. Behind 2 Brits Lee Childs and James Nelson, of all people.

and Rafa Nadal was called Rafael Nadal Parera (it was still the case in 2003 when he beat Mario in Wimby) but it was probably too long for journos and umpires

It shows that some didn't manage the transition from the Junior to the Pro Circuit... It's not uncommon.

four of them made the Top 20 in pros... so maybe there's about a 20% chance of a successful junior reaching a similar status in pros...
