Improving with age is a euphemism not taken too kindly by some women but it would seem in tennis that quality, these days certainly, comes with experience.
Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki is the only teenager in the top 25-ranked women at this year's French Open, an event where the energy, vitality and innocence of youth used to dominate like at no other slam.
"I think it's really tough at the top at the moment there are so many great players up there," the 19-year-old Wozniacki said on Monday after a straightforward 6-0, 6-3 first round win over Russian Alla Kudryavtseva on Monday.
