A prime example on why the junior rankings cannot always be relied upon as a representation of a player's ability. By WTN, she is the 2nd best girl here with only the top seed she beat having a better WTN (and, incidentally, better than any of our junior girls). She would have had the highest WTN of the girls here had it not fallen slightly after the US Nationals a couple of weeks ago. That is not to say that the WTN should be solely relied upon either, but taken together with other rankings perhaps gives a more holistic view than just junior rankings.

I agree.

I set very little store by junior rankings (I don't set much by lower adult rankings either)

I follow junior rankings, and think they're important in a circular way i.e. the ranking gets you into other events that give rankings. The ITF bene system for top-10 and top-100 players is important too.

But in and of themselves they're largely a reflection of who plays the most ITF junior events - which many very good players don't do or don't need to do

French players used to play very few ITF junior events - that's changed a bit now. USA is quite common. And South American players too.

Well done to Aspen
