My picks:

Henrik Wiersholm – gotta pick someone , what a wicked forehand .
Michael Mmoh – my darkhorse, thinking that his physicality might lift him over the others. The game is not getting any shorter .

Seriously, this group seems to have so much talent that I am considering a separate junior thread for them .

It's impossible to tell at this point. Probably not the ones who are doing the best. Peaking too soon.

I highly doubt this to be honest. The guys who peak to soon are usually average junior grinders with games that don't translate well to the pros like Chase Buchanan. Guys that truly have a very high level of skill off the ground will be by far the best at 14 and still the best of their age at 20.
As for the thread, I will be personally be very surprised if Stefan isn't the best of the bunch. Though it has to be said that this is a very promising group overall. I have high hopes.
