First time it happens since 2003. I just read that in a USA Today article.
http://www.usatoday.com/sports/tennis/open/2006-08-30-youngsters_x.htm

In fact, I was surprised it happened in 2003.

Todays youngsters :
2 - Nadal (20y)
8 - Baghdatis (21y)
14 - Berdych (21y)
19 - Murray (19y)
24 - Djokovic (19y)
29 - Gasquet (20y)
31 - Monfils (19y)

I didn't know that 31 was considerer top30 but we won't nitpick.

2003 youngters (7th of july) :
3- Federer (21y)
6- Roddick (21y)
7- Guillermo Coria (21y)
19 - David Nalbandian (21y)
20 - Tommy Robredo (21y)
27 - Mikhail Youzhny (21y)
29 - Jarkko Nieminen (21y)

Some were really close to 22 (one or 2 weeks for Niemienen), and they were older than the current generation.

Strangely, no mention of groupA and groupB in the article.

Thanks for the article, it seems that the time for the change of guard at the top appears closer.
