The Next teen phenom??

Every few years we have a bunch of teenage phenoms who break through on the tour... in the late 90's, the spice girls (hingis, venus, serena, anna) all came along at around the same time.... now we have ivanovic, golovin, vaidisova.... who are the current 10-12 years olds who are gonna be the next teen phenoms? anyone with any insight....

if ivanovic, golovin, vaidisova are phenoms, then Nastya Pavlyuchenkova is the next one. She won AO GS (Juniors) at the age 14.

Vassilissa is my girl............

I think you use the word "phenom" quite loosely. You call greats like the Williams sisters and Martina phenoms, and then deteriorate the power of the word for Ivanovic and Golovin?

i hate to say this... but, golovin is far from a "phenom." She hasn't done anything spectacular yet. Does she even have a WTA title? Anyway, I am not trying to be mean, 'cause I like her a lot-- , but she really hasn't had "phenom-enal" results

Ivanovic, I haven't followed closely. But she didn't do anything amazing at 16 or 17. She will be 19 soon, and she is still climbing--building her resume. I don't think she's a "phenom."

Sharapova has been the only teen "phenom..." and Kuznetsova... Remember her? Not Ivanovic and Golovin.

And I hate to say this, but Vaidisova looks to be the only one with "phenom" potential right now. Girl is on a roll and she has sheer determination. She has already won several tournaments, she is STILL 16. Maybe she will pull a surprise Grand Slam at 17 just like Masha. Now that would be phenomenal, but, I hope that doesn't happen. I hate to admit it, but she rocks.

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

I use to call them Anna, Hingis, Serena, and Venus the four divas of tennis. For some reason those four were different from the girls today, they had something special that made the world focus on them, something that Maria and the other girls don’t have today. I don’t think we will ever see that again.
