AUSTRALIAN OPEN JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS
Melbourne, Australia - January 24-30, 2005

Fifteen year old Donald Young became the youngest boy to ever win a Grand Slam event when he defeated Sun-Yong Kim at the Australian Open Junior Championships on January 30, 2005. Donald will also become the youngest boy to be ranked No. 1 in the next ITF Junior World Rankings. There has never previously been an African-American boy winner at the Australian. Andy Roddick was the last American to win in the juniors there. Donald faced Sun-Yong again in the doubles where he and partner Thiemo de Bakker of the Netherlands lost in the finals.

Another star down under was Viktoria Azarenka of Belarus, also fifteen, who swept the singles and doubles (with partner Marina Erakovic of New Zealand).
