Wow, hate to be a pessimist, but after wating the first set of Caro vs Ula...

Is this the future of womens' Tennis?

Im sorry, i dont mind either but seriously both their games. Ok, they both have nice backhands and are fairly good at the net and have good variety but seriously. Some of the decisions make them seem just as brainless as the BBBBs of the tour, and there's just nothing special about their games. Nothing. If these two are meant to be the next best things in the WTA since sliced bread then wow. I mean its not a bad match, but there's just nothing there.... I know that people have hammered this home about Caro but wow, im still in shock. I just couldnt watch anymore..

I believe that these women are not the future of tennis but just the next step in evolution of women's tennis. It is the girls behind them that will be the real holders of tennis.

Radwanska jerks her body more than Kleybanova does when she hits groundstrokes. Neither of them are the future of tennis - no way either of them ever grabs a big title in their career.

Pavlyunchekova will outperform them. Seriously I agree a bit with the opener, and Pavlyuchenkova looks to have more talent and power that these two.

1. You love being a pessimist

2. Their games will develop and change!

3. Yes, they will be in the deep end of bigger titles like it or not.

4. I am fine with it, they are mentally sound. They can keep the ball in court for more than 3 strokes.

Yeah I agree Pavlyuchenkova looks good but she took forever to make the transition between Juniors and WTA.

Williams sisters, Sharapova, Safina, Azarenka, and Pavlyuchenkova for the next several years. It's not just going to be Radwanska and Wozniacki dominating when the Williams sisters retire. There are still plenty of players that are already better than them or have the potential to be better than them.

But I think she's from 1991 and she's already n.42. Wozniacki and Radwanska are both from 1990 I think. Anyways it's too early to say.

They're only 18. Give them a break.

Swiss champs.

Its true she flew up the ranks once she had transitioned but I always thought she could have started a bit sooner.

so true, I appreciate Caro but come on, she lacks power, it's annoying, where are the winners
Pavlyuenchova is the future of tennis, good hitting from both sides, especially with her BH

If I'm not mistaken they can only play a few WTA events before turning 18?

I read she won 5 ITF events in 2008 and that's why her ranking got pretty high.

The thing is that Caro doesn't lack power. She hit a couple of 110 mph serves to end the match. She's capable of stepping up and hitting winners, but for whatever reason seems to moonball and stand well behind the baseline under pressure. She HAS to get rid of this habit if she's going to seriously contend for major titles and slams.
