    WTA 17-19 year old generation

    I've written about this before (in the rankings thread), but here I expand on it in a fresh thread so it could be found easier later. I'm deliberately limiting it to players no younger than 17. Two reasons - first none have really achieved anything yet on the main tour and second it's unfair to compare because many future top players from an even later generation are still only playing juniors.

    Here are the eight front runners. I'm pretty convinced all of these will be top 20 at some stage, most will reach top 10 and 1-2 will win Slams.

    Bianca Andreescu (18.9, CAN)



    Biggest results: 2019 IW champion, 2017 AO and RG junior doubles champion
    Career high ranking: #22

    Extra fact: born to Romanian parents in Canada, has partially grown up in Romania and started playing tennis there
