Post Who's the future of french tennis?

Mauresmo certainly have a few more years in her, and Pierce might make a last comeback... but let's face it, in about 4 years, the Mauresmo/Pierce era will come to an end.
Golovin is the most obvious answer, but who knows how far she can go... should we expect more from even younger Cornet? What about Rezai who has a huge potential? Any good from Fedossova, Johannson, Parmentier... others?
Can Bartoli and Razzano improve as they get older?
Discuss!

Re: Who's the future of french tennis?

Golovin can definatly become Top 10, but GS winer, not sure.

Never seen Cornet play, but her results are impressive.

Razai, top 30 ,Top 20 at best,

Re: Who's the future of french tennis?

ok i gave a vote to Virginie... so delusional... she'll never be a top player but she can beat them on a good day - while I'm not sure Bartoli can - and i dont know, i like her for some reason

Re: Who's the future of french tennis?

Golovin and possibly Cornet, although Alize is still young.

Re: Who's the future of french tennis?

golovin for me is the best french prospect-after she can win her first title i think she will be pretty tough to stop, shes shown she can beat the best its just doing it in the big matches.

i reckon rezai is perhaps the 2nd biggest hope. i think shes a great player but maybe a less talented version of mirza, her crazy dad is a worry as well

bartoli is a good striker of the ball but her serve and movement are just again another strange father i havent seen her game change over the past couple of years and i dont think it will do in the future. she will be a good player, maybe a GS 1/4 final or two but i dont think she will reach the heights of the game

i think its a bit soon to say for cornet, fedossova, parmentier and johannson-they have all had good results. i personally think fedossova will achieve the most but the other 3 will all do well.

razzano i dont know, i dont think shes that great to be honest

Re: Who's the future of french tennis?

tati for hard courts and alizé for clay courts,she s only 16 and made good results on the tour.
She has fighting spirit and love roland garros.Hopefully she will do great there.

For those who dont want Sharapova to get a WC at Roland Garros,

join me in this Group to put pressure on the French Tennis Federation to make them defend VALUES AND INTEGRITY!

Re: Who's the future of french tennis?

Well, the first one to access top level will certainly be Tatiana, who is so mature compared to the others (I leave appart Razzano who's already 25, and could not confirm as senior what she did as junior).

I hope Aravane can go further, but she has to climb step by step and if she improves, she can't be as high as expected before a few years.

Alizé can also go high, but she has to put more power to her game.

Then for the others, I have no idea, Bartoli should start playing Tier II or more tournaments and not play so much and maybe she can do something...

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefčvre...
