Next world #1 surely deserves to have his own MTF Thread. He was born on 19th July 1995, and currently has 15 years. At the moment, he occupies #23 on Juniors' Rank list, although his best ever rank was #21 last week. He's the youngest player in top 188 on Juniors list. While he was competiting in Under 14's, he had no rival and was winning everything that could be won, and of course he was #1.
His biggest achievement was probably winning Grade 2 event in Beijing. He also played in another G2 final in Huzhou. He also won one Grade 4 event in St.Petersburg and played in 3 more finals.
A few weeks ago, he played on Grade A Casablanca Cup and reached QF. This week, he's 13th seed on Australian Open and will play against unseeded Saville in R3. He's probably the biggest hope of Serbian tennis.
All of his points have come from tournaments that the top players are too good to play in. He's a good player, but he's not the #1 Junior in the world regardless of what the rankings say. If you look at the quality of players in the tournaments he's won its pathetic. Costa Rica had no one, Mexico had Silva, I'll give him that.
I'm not trying to take a lot away from him, but he is not the best Junior in the world, not by a long shot.

They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
In two weeks he's playing another G1 junior event. These are not events for Top 10 juniors, he should be trying to get a pro ranking so that he won't need to spend his first year as a senior struggling.
