let's hope he's the next Murray (2004 US Open Jr Winner) and not the next Oliver Golding, last Brit to win a junior slam in 2011. I was looking through the list of former winners at Wimbledon and it's a real hit and miss list of big names and nobodies, Federer, Edberg, Lendl have won, then there are players I've never heard of never to be seen again.

Didn't drop a set and beat 3 seeds along the way, at 6ft4 aged 17 he should hope to stop growing, optimum height is 6ft-6ft3 in tennis. Massive lefty serve, hit a 134mph serve, bigger than Djokovic or Alcaraz today. Will need to see more of him to decide weather he's another wildcard bum in waiting or the real deal, atm it looks like the real deal. Kind Regards

Junior slam winners are real hit and miss full stop, without seeing his game impossible to tell. Like eg. a lot more was expected of Murray than Golding to begin with. A lot of the best juniors don't actually bother with junior slams, which is why it's not necessarily the best indicator. Eg. you didn't see a lot of Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner in junior slams.

6 ft 4 at age 17 and hitting a 134 serve - sounds like John Isner!

If nothing else, should have a fairly decent future playing on fast surfaces.
