I hope the new world number one Jason Kubler can win this event, also another aussie hot favourite would be James Duckworth currently ranked 28 in the juniors.

The top half of the draw is so much tougher! Both of last year's finalists (Mina and Berta), Australian Open champ (Fernandes), dangerous Spaniard (Boluda) and Arguello (who won an Argentine Futures already) are all in the top half.

How often to juniors actually come back to defend their title (referring to Berta)? I mean, there's not much to be gained from it, especially because he's already been number one.

My thoughts, also. What more could be achieved for him here that he hasn't achieved already?

I also found strange that the ones having already some good pro results decided to play junior tournament, even if it was a GS. If would be OK if it was the first appearance imo, but otherwise I think it would be better for them to focus on the future pro career.

Well Berta lost first round, shows what a lack of motivation can do. Boluda also lost surprisingly.

I think it can be beneficial for juniors to play boys' Grand Slams even when they have some good pro results. It helps with name recognition and future wild cards. For example, I think Tomic could possibly benefit from a US Open wild card (or a US ATP event wild card) because of his junior US Open win last year (Tomic was already around 300 in the world at the time).
