Off the top of my head: Becker 85, 86 when he was 17,18....

McEnroe 77(18?)

Goran 90(19?)

Can't remember anyone else.....

Borg won it in 76 when he'd just turned 20(1 month or 1 week or something like that)

All Slams there are more...

Chang, Becker, Wilander, Edberg, Nadal, Borg, Sampras all have WON atleast one slam as teenagers....

As far as I know, only Borg, Wilander & Becker have 2 slams as teenagers....

If all slams, then it would include Hewitt US Open 2000 (SF) as well as all the teen slam winners (Chang, Becker, Wilander, Borg, Nadal, Sampras, Edberg).

It's seems immpossible to make semis as a teenager now. Kyrgios somehow made quaters (just one single win prior the tournament started). Maybe Coric could make it? He will probably be top 50 for 2 years. He is very strong for his early age and with that ranking he could do it.
Chang, Ivanisevic, Hewitt, Becker, Mcnroe, Borg, Sampras, Wilander, Edberg, Nadal, Agassi...what a list: 8 truly tennis legends plus first 3 who were great, but underachievers unfortunately.
I always thought it is alot more of them.
So Goran is the last teenager in semis of Wimbledon. Cool.
