Surprised a South African even got direct acceptance into this and he's only 15. :D

Of course he lost first round against a qualifying quarter-finalists, still good though. Has potential.

Many don't bother with last year juniors, they're out there on tour already.

Vesely and Carballes-Baena are still Juniors

I'm following every young player (born in 1991 or after) in every Futures, Challenger or on Tour so we will see the full picture at the end of the year

Yes, young Wayne is looking good. Tomic made the 2nd round of RG juniors as a 14 year old. In that 2nd round loss he got fined for lack of effort by the ITF and had his funding temporarily withdrawn by tennis Australia. :haha:

Wow, fined for lack of effort at the age of 14! What is your assessment of Tomic now?

Repeated indiscretions result in my loss of patience. An article I wrote in March demonstrates this: http://www.thebigtip.com.au/tennis/controversial-tomic-ditches-dallas

I want so bad to like him, but he is making it very difficult!

http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/scores/draws/bs/index.html The 14th seed is in the semis. The 4th seed got thrashed by American(!) Bjorn Fratangelo in the quarters.

Thanks again for another insightful article :)

Yes, it is difficult to warm to him because of incidents like these. It is a shame as he has a lot of natural talent and could have gone far in his career. Of course he can still do so if everything clicks for him. I am hoping for a Federer-esque turning point for him...it is still not too late (although in Federer's case his parents were much more supportive than being a potential hindrance).
