He is 19 yrs old on both itfjuniors.com and ***************** these two sites, but atp listed him as 16 yrs old. :confused:

He had quite good results when he was juniors. Winning RG 2002 doubles and being #1 in doubles was his best juniors result.

and he did play Nadal once last year at Wimbledon juniors, Nadal beat him in three sets.

They are just being sly, pretending they have a young up and comer to compete with the likes of Nadal and Gasquet! ;) Oh German tennis, where have you gone?
