I'm sure Waske was 24 or 25 when he turned pro, so Isner at 22 wasn't too extreme.

There is also some Czech guy names Rudolf Siwy who I've never heard of before. He's 25 and started playing this year, received a wild card for Indian Wells qualies where he beat Rajeev Ram :lol:

Yeah, if I'm not wrong he retired in 2010. He was born in January 1981 and turned pro only in 2006.
