16 (09 Jul 1995)    Corinteli 6'-3" (twitter)
17 (13 Feb 1995)    Kwiatkowski 6'-1" to 6'-2" (taller than Nicholas Massu who is 6'-0" see 1st attachment)
15 (04 Jul 1996)    Escobedo 6'-0" to 6'-1 1/2" (was said to be 5'-11" about a year ago)
15 (09 Oct 1996)    Donaldson 6'-0" to 6'-2" (seems slightly taller than Escobedo, see 3rd attachment)
14 (10 Jan 1998)    Mmoh 6'-0" to 6'-2" (see 3rd attachment)
16 (22 Oct 1995)    Papa 5'-11" to 6'-1" (shorter than Kwiatkowski, see 2nd attachment)
17 (03 Oct 1994)    Connor Farren 5'-11" (listed on ITF earlier this year)
14 (20 Jan 1998)    Tiafoe 5'-8 1/2" to 5'-10" (see 3rd attachment)
14 (26 Jan 1998)    Blumberg 5'-8" to 5'-10" (see 3rd attachment)
16 (21 Feb 1996)    Rubin 5'-8" to 5'-9" (looks at least 2" shorter than Farren, from a G1 final earlier this year)
17 (16 Apr 1995)    McDonald 5'-8" to 5'-9" (just a pure guess)
15 (27 Mar 1997)    Wiersholm 5'-7 to 5'-7 1/2" (seems slightly taller than Kozlov from their Orange Bowl pic)
14 (01 Feb 1998)    Kozlov 5'-7" (article)
Kozlov, Wiersholm, Rubin, McDonald . From the look of it, Mmoh might end up taller than everyone (has that basketball player physique).
One thing for sure, they are all above (and a lot of them well above) average human heights for their age. McDonald might be the shortest of that group once fully grown and yet he has plenty of time to reach 6'0". I'm not really as worried about any of them being too short as I am about some of them being too skinny and/or not having a good muscle build for the game, which is continuously getting more physical. But that's pretty controllable so it's just up to them to train properly. I'm really excited about this generation, some of them have a lot of promise. Most the guys that went pro in the last generation, the one right before Harrison, Kudla, and Sock (guys like Michael Mcclune, Ty Trombetta, Jordan Cox who are in their early 20s) have been a pretty big bust. Maybe their college playing rivals will fare better on the pro circuit.

Re: 1994-1996 : Rubin, Kwiatkowski, Halebian, Papa, Corinteli, McDonald, Donaldson,

Agreed. None of their heights should be a limiting factor in their careers. Take Kozlov for example, 5'7 or so at 14 years old. Not only is he not short for his age, but if he has a nice growth spurt somewhere along the line he may end up being above average as far as tennis players go.

List of players from IMG committed to college. The only tennis names (male) I recognize are Trey Strobel and Mac Styslinger.

IMG Academies' class of 2012 sees 135 student-athletes commit to universities

Several juniors are on their way to Milan, Italy, for the upcoming GA event (Kozlov, Rubin, Papa, McDonald, Corinteli, Krueger, and Kwiatkowski).

Hard to say, but based on clay pedigree Papa seems like a safe bet.

Re: 1994-1996 : Rubin, Kwiatkowski, Halebian, Papa, Corinteli, McDonald, Donaldson,

53 Trofeo Bonfiglio

Maindraw: http://www.tcmbonacossa.it/documenti/singolare_m.pdf

Maybe Corinteli didn't make the trip after all (withdrew). Hopefully, one of them will make it past the 1st round.

Re: 1994-1996 : Rubin, Kwiatkowski, Halebian, Papa, Corinteli, McDonald, Donaldson,



Also surprised at some of the losses: Garin (CHI) and Nishioka (JPN)

Maybe this is why:

Rain here in Milan. 3 indoors sites. One on hard, one on carpet, and one on artificial grass. Tournament was supposed to be on clay.

That may just explain it
Anyway, due to that I wouldn't really take this result seriously at all. Those surfaces indoors could not possibly be more different than outdoor red clay.

Funny thing is, though, that on a whole all those surfaces would favor all of our players except Spencer, which is why it's a shame that he had to play today and the others didn't.
