Most talented 19 year old in top 100?

This list in in order of 2006 wins so far:

1. Jarmila Gajdosova- 44 wins



2. Aravane Rezai- 42 wins



3. Anastasiya Yakimova- 34 wins



4. Maria Sharapova- 32 wins



5. Shahar Peer- 26 wins



6. Jamea Jackson- 18 wins



7. Maria Kirilenko- 17 wins



8. Lucie Safarova- 17 wins



9. Anna Chakvetadze- 16 wins



10. Sania Mirza- 9 wins



These are all ten of the ladies in the top 100 who are 19 years old. I believe all of them have very bright futures. Though the top 3 got most of their wins from the ITF Circuit while the rest of the girls got their wins from the WTA Tour. I believe this is a talented group and they will have have great careers. Maybe not top 10 material. But Each one of them will most likely see the top 30 during some point. Some of them are already there. Maria Sharapova is the highest ranked though that does not always mean they have the most potential. Who do you guys think have the most talent?

Kirilenko has the more all around game though.

Maria has all the power but there is more to tennis than having a power game, Im talking about players who are complete, and dont need to rely on only power to win games.

No, no she actually doesn't. That is a big huge myth, as proved by the fact that she lost first round here in San Diego. Her volleys only look good in comparison to the rest of her game. She has no power anywhere. Yes she runs fast, but so do most players. She thinks pretty well, but she is no Hingis.

This is so obvious. Maria Sharapova is the most talented 19 year old.

Sharapova is the most talented 19 year old, but Kirilenko does have a more complete game. If you can't see this, I suggest you get out of Sharapova's ass so things are more clear.

Your right Kirilenko is not a big hitter, but Ive seen her hit some pretty nice flat shots. She does hit the softest out of all the girls above in the list but at the same time she is one of the higher ranked girls as well. Her game is adaptable. Maria cant adapt her game she only knows one thing and thats to hit hard as she can.

Having seen Rezai, she's up there with the best.

I still disagree, and there is no ass hindering my vision. Maria has a better forehand, backhand, and serve than Kirilenko. She doesn't volley better, but Kirilenko can't get to net because of her lack of power.

Let them eat cake.
