Teen starlets all gone

Golovin, Karatantcheva, Vaidisova, Ivanovic. All the hype but no impact at all at Wimbledon and it's only 3rd round. Comments?

most will do better next year, if they are still around.

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.

Similar to Sharapova last year...they just need another year. Except for maybe Golovin..she's had chances and seems to be regressing.

I didnt know that Ana is older than Tatiana! I have just noticed that today, she is 2 months older (87 Nov for Ana, 88 Jan for Tati)!
I think all these young "starlets" will achieve great things next years! (and perhaps in September at US Open?)

Golovin - Hasn't been in the best of form lately. I'm sure she will pick it up soon.

Karatantcheva - She had to face Sharapova in 2R! HELLO!?!

Vaidisova - Still getting used to the bounce on grass. She did pretty good. Should have beaten Kuznetsova in straight sets! I think she can win this tournament in the future.

Ivanovic - Had a minor injury and didn't play any warm-ups. I think she can win this tournament in the future as well.

For all except Golovin this was the first Wimbledon appearance. And all except Golovin played tough opponents.
BTW, I don't mean to bash Golovin this way, I'm pretty sure she'll bounce back from this mini-slump she's in right now.

All four mentioned in the 1st post are talented and have a future, but we can't tell yet whether any will make it to Top Ten status for any length of time.

Well they probably have played less on grass than any other surface so it might take them longer to adjust

So Sharapova is no longer a teen starlet?

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

I think those girls did'nt had enough experiences to perform well at Wimbledon this year, except for Golovin. I'm sure they will have a better result next year!

.:.Ana Ivanovic.:.
Wozniak - Wozniacki - Cibulkova

.:.Anna Kournikova.:.

Every time I go to a match watching the 'up and comer' they seem to fall into a slump

-Hantuchova in 2003
-Dokic in 2003
-Golovin in 2005

sorry people!
