Likely that Agassi & Becker had top 25 wins at 16/17, in slams...
Chang beat Lendl when he won RG 1989, Lendl was still top-25 then....or to be more precise, top-1.

What about Gasquet beating the Fed in MC in 2005, I think or was he too old then?

Gasquet was almost 19 and it was Bo3, not Bo5.

It was a slip in my interpretation....

For some reason, I read the OP as when the earliest(youngest) someone beat a Top 25 guy in a Bo5....

17 year old Hewitt destroyed Cedric Pioline in AO 99 R128 by 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. Pioline was #15 at the time.

He also did it multiple times in a best of 3.

I think this is the correct answer to the question. No 17-year old won a Bo5 match against top-25 opposition between Hewitt and Coric - unless I've missed something.
