That is very very impressive. Croatian tennis looks like it's going to get even deeper. Goran Ivanisevic has left an incredible legacy.

Don't be so fast...how many times have we seen a promising junior never make it? I hope he does, and he seems to have the physical attributes for a high ranking but be careful in praising him too early.

True, but the combination of his size and age do make him a very promising prospect who we will need to keep an eye on the next couple of years.

Why are Croats so tall?
This kid is only 16 and already 6'4", 6'5"? :eek:
Divide him in half, we get two Belgians.

He also seems pretty tall, what's his height? Should be quite a factor at Wimbledon juniors as should Sam Querrey who is 16 and 6'6 tall!
