I know I could probably look it up online, but I'm sure many people here know this and its faster...

So who (and at what age) was the oldest and youngest players to ever win any title and a major tournament?

Alan krickstein (sp?) won tel aviv when he was 16 years and 2 months, which is pretty impressive.Chang won San Francisco 16 years and 7 months.

Chang also has the youngest age to win a grand slam at 17 years and 3 months when he beat edberg at RG. Borg won RG at 17 years and 11 months.

No I didn't...

Tennis is very under-developed in Israel, in the last 3-5 years it started getting better, but even now there is very little awareness about the sport there.

Thankfully players like Shahar Peer and Dudi Sela are doing very well and making it look more attractive to young Israeli players and they also get media coverage which should help boost tennis there...

If Richards was the youngest before Open Era, Davin & Ho are/were younger than Richards.
