Most talented 16-18 year olds in top 100

In order of number of 2006 wins so far:

1. Vasilisa Bardina- 38 wins



2. Nicole Vaidisova- 28 wins



3. Michaella Krajicek- 22 wins



4. Ana Ivanovic- 19 wins



5. Svetana Pironkova- 17 wins



6. Tatiana Golovin- 16 wins



7. Vania King- 13 wins



These are the 18 and under girls on tour, a couple do turn 19 later on in the year though, but that is a talented group of girls otherwise they wouldnt be in the top 100. But out of this group I believe Ana has the most talent with Tatiana coming in close second. But the rest of the girls are pretty close where it comes to talent and all will have good careers. Who do you guys think is the best out of this group.

You can't judge by wins either because Bardina played ITF's.

Nicole and Ana, Ana could possibly be better. But seems to screw it up all the time.

I don't understand why people get so transfixed by Ana's game. I love her, but she almost unanimously gets dubbed more talented than Nicole. Nicole is the single most talented player on tour. She hits the hardest, serves the most accurately and the hardest both first and second, volleys solidly, moves solidly and is solid mentally (she slips more than Justine, say, but she is solid.) Ana's second serve is a mess technically. She is very very talented, but it should not be clear that she is more talented than Nicole, just as it should not be clear that Nicole is more talented.

However, to say that Golovin has more raw talent than Nicole is literally laughable. I love Tatiana and she is very talented, but she doesn't have the potential to win 10+ majors. She just doesn't.

Power takes talent to control. I hate when people say that power does not take talent. Have you ever tried to cream the ball on every shot? I have. It doesn't stay in. The ability to hit hard and consistently keep the ball in takes more raw talent than any of those cute little shots Martina pulls off that make people ooo and ah.

Besides, people see talent differently anyway, so it's a bit subjective.

I mean if you think about it, you could just take them by ranking and order them that way, you can look at number of wins, you can look at who they have beaten - there's so many ways to look at it.

I don't think Vaidisova has the potential to win 10+ majors either maybe a few but double digits?? You need to get your head out of the sky

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
