I haen't seen or heard of him, but I hope his game translates well to a tour level. It's really hard to tell. Monfils would have been in all four junior major finals, probably, had it not been for injury, and look how he's been...

Impressive feat. Hopefully he can convert from juniors to the pros without too much problem. He's already made a challenger semi.

Hopefully Canada can continue to produce good young tennis players, with Milos, and hopefully Filip we can be a force to reckoned with in davis cup for years to come

His serve is better than you'd expect from someone his height. It's not his best weapon obviously but I don't think it's a liability. Like Smoke said he's an agressive baseliner, has a decent forehand.

I've only seen him once live and twice via live stream though. Will get a better idea in a few years if he makes it on tour

Great prospect if you ask me.

I'd like Broady to win, though, then we will have the best junior prospects (in my opinion) winning one slam each this year. And there's other good prospects as well like Quinzi.

best prospects out there are, imo, coppejans, broady and cagnina. in thart order
coppejans is really good. he has some variety from the baseline and his groundstrokes are really beautiful to see :)

Broady should be good - used to see him at tournaments all the time playing in the age group a few years below me, he used to wipe the floor with everyone his age!

Yeah, but you're saying that from the outside looking in. If you were actually looking at things from his perspective, you might not feel that way. As of now (his win at the US Open), he's established himself as the top Junior in the world. He has to have his sights set high on the tour. Hopefully not with the same ignorance that someone like Donald Young had (ie stubborn refusal to seek outside help), but with the mentality that he shouldn't just be floating around on tour.

I'm not disrespecting Monfils' achievements, of course, but look at what he did as a junior and look at the magnitude of what Peliwo has just accomplished and ask yourself if either really strive(d) to meet the status quo on tour.

yeah his drawwas easy for a challenger but he still did beat 2 players ranked top 250, and he was ranked 800+ at the time so he is improving, can't really expect him to beat top 100 players yet, I'd be impressed if he got in the top 500 by years end, baby steps

Edgerg is on youtube. Seems like he quit tennis and now he's "testing" new things. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xMn9PZ9c2I

For some reason he got a graph over swiss franc vs japanse yen. My guess is that he's secretly living in Japan and intends to blackmail Federer for money. Just noted it was from 2008. Explains the mono thing. It was Edgerg.

To put it into perspective just how far the juniors are behind the top guys you only need to compare Peliwo with someone like Djokovic.

At the age of 17 he qualified for the Aussie Open in 2005. That same year he then reached the second round of RG having qualified, the third round of Wimbledon having qualified and the third round of the US open having been given direct entry.

Whilst still 18, he then lost the first round of the Aussie Open, reached the quarters at the French, the fourth round at Wimbledon and the third round at the US Open.

Peliwo is 19 in a few months and his grand slam record at the moment? Non-existant.

I have actually, playing Grand Slams @ 18 isn't something common, on the contrary :) People here often bash players like Tipsy, Monfils, Cilic etc, but all of them were miles ahead of today's "promising youngsters" at that age :)

I reckon one way of pushing these "juniors" to become men sooner is to ban them from playing slams after the year in which they turn 18 or even 17. They need to get fit faster to make tennis interesting.

Saville preferred playing Australian 15K futures than the junior US Open.
Won one future one week ago and lost in semifinal to Groth last week.

Saville is the junior player with most ATP points won in 2012, Peliwo is only fifth (behind Monteiro, Christian Harrison, Ryan's brother, who's played no junior grand slam at all, and Pavlasek)

Junior grand slams are much overrated in modern era, many upcomers of last decade (including Tomic, Berdych or Gasquet) had left the junior tour far before 18 (Saville and Peliwo's current age), the real key to improve is in challengers and futures now.

In Edberg's time junior grand slams were more important.

Monfils won many junior grand slams because Nadal and Gasquet were already playing with adults in that time.
