Peliwo was the top junior in the world for a while there. He never had the most projectable pro game, but I figured he'd have at least made the top 100.

Peliwo was already 18 years old when he won the gs, he was basically a vulture in juniors.

Ciorcilla, Saville, Luz, Thiago Fernandes...

Roman Valent? Basically the only thing I remember about him is that he failed as a pro.

Filip Peliwo for sure has to be the biggest example I can think of that was a great junior and has disappointed. A few more I can think of would be Quentin Halys and Zsombor Piros

Actually I guess the biggest example would be Bernard Tomic
Bernie achieved way more as a pro than peliwo, golding, broady, saville, Quinzi or all the other guys named here man
