I put together this list which details all of the female number 1 junior players for the past 7 years or so. It is very interesting to see how many of these players havent been able to progress into the senior WTA ranks (well top 20 in the world). However, from number 8 down.. most have moved onto the WTA Tour and had moderate success, in other words top 100 in the world.

1. Irina Khromacheva RUS (31 Oct 2011)
