90's - Wozniacki, Cirstea, Cornet, Kvitova, U.Rad'ka, Voegele, Morita, Sevatsova,

I am so unsure at what age women need to start accomplishing things if we think they can be a future grand slam champion? All first time grand slam champions happen at such a young age unless you disinclude J-Cap (but she probably would of) and Lindsey Davenport. Martina H, Venus, Serena, Sveta, Justine, Maria, Kim (actually she was 22) were all 20and under.

I look at the list of these 19 year olds in the top 100 at the moment and i honestly dont think any of these girls have a chance of winning a slam apart from Wozniacki and that would be a slim chance. I actually think the only other girl who has a big enough game is Kvitova. I am wishing for good things for her over the next two years and to be honest I forgot how young she still is. I still cant believe Cornet is only 19. It upset me watching her now as she looks so depressed playing. She has about 10 years left potentially on the circuit.

Would love to hear some views on if you think of any of these are going to really breakthrough obvioulsy not counting Woz

Wozniacki
Cirstea
Cornet
Kvitova
U.Rad'ka
Voegele
Morita
Sevatsova

I was expecting Ula to do more by now. Cirstea has an outside chance at the French. She has some game on clay. Cornet seems to have hit a wall.

Azarenka is a young 20 year old... I think she or Caroline will be the next of the "next gen" to win a slam.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Is it really that hard to type out the whole name 'Radwanska'? You've only missed out 4 letters, not like it would've saved much time.

Sorana has game, so much game. She's been injured for so long though. Doctors, parents and everyone told her to call it a season but she decided to keep on playing and now she has a stress fracture or something and has been on crutches for the last weeks, AO isn't certain. But if she keeps improving as she has been then hopefully she can begin to realise her potential on clay AND on hardcourts. I love Steffi and I like Ula too but I don't think any of the rest are GS material.

Wozniacki winning a slam would be catastrophic for the game tenniswise.

Wozniacki winning a slam would be and wouldnt be. I think she is a great personality, she fights so hard and has a great smile. I would rather see her winning one than awful Azarenka who really showed her true colours at SEC of being a disgusting spoilt brat. Her chances will be slimmer next year as well. I imagine the top 8 next year to be in this order - Serena, Kuzzy, Clijsters, Sharapova, Venus, Henin, Jankovic and Azarenka. Could be a golden era next year with some great match ups and great rivalries and I could see it being Venus last season as well. I cant wait for the Henin Williams matches and some Sharapova v Williams as well. Clijsters v Sharapova is always good too. Jankovic against Henin, Clisjters and Williams is also great. Bring it on 2010!

Playing are taking longer to develop than was the case 10, 20 even 5 years ago. So we really can throw out the "if you haven't won a slam by 20 you are not going to win one" logic. Look at the current generation. We currently have only 3 Grand Slam champions under the age of 26. The Williams sisters and the Belgium girls aren't going to be around for ever. Nor do Sharapova, Kuznetsova or Ivanovic look to me to be players who are going to rack up a huge amount of addition Slams. At some point the younger generation is going to take over. But the thing is, the younger generation isn't going to be so young when it happens.

Could this generation be superceded by an even younger more talented generation? Yes it could. But it sure doesn't look on the cards right now. The age at which players are normally breaking into the top 100 is increasing all the time and the 15 to 17 year olds emerging onto the circuit right now certainly don't appear to be any better than the 18 to 21 year olds.

None of this means any of the players named in thread title is assured of winning a Slam, although I suspect one or two might. I also wouldn't dismiss the chances of the many talented 19, 20 and 21 year olds in the game right now. Infact I wouldn't rule out any player winning a first Slam solely on the basis of age until they are at least 25. And even then, well, I think a few of us still think Elena Dementieva is still in with a chance for at least another year or so. To conclude I suspect there are at least one or two future Slam winners aged 18 to 21 lurking out there, that most of us, myself included, have simply overlooked, who will suprise a lot of people in the future.

None of these girls will win a slam. To be honest I think we can expect the women in their 20s to keep winning the slams for the next few years, and then the generation after these girls might come along and win one, but none of these girls have it. They either have the wrong game, the wrong mentality, or both.

I think Cirstea and Wozniacki CAN, but not in the next few years as there is too much competition

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Aga and Ula by far. I expect them to win more than one slam.
Not only very talented but they have very good coach as well

What about Mauresmo? Wasn't she like 26 or 27?

In any case, I think Wozniacki certainly CAN and WILL win multiple slams, it's just a question of how long it will take her to achieve that. I don't really think any other player born in 1990 or 1991 will win one, but the next most likely is probably Pavly, as I said in the other thread (she needs to maybe drop a few pounds though.)

Re: 90's - Wozniacki, Cirstea, Cornet, Kvitova, U.Rad'ka, Voegele, Morita, Sevatsova

Alizé Cornet said in an interview during Luxembourg that she wants to show again in 2010 why she has been number 11 in the world. Her poor results this season where also due to her shoulder injury and she lost self confidence. In the last tournaments she showed some encouring signs again.

I think that she can make it far at Grand Slams (SF) in a couple of years, but her mental toughness at such important matches is the big question mark. She was only one game away to reach the quarters of Australian Open on hard last season. Her biggest chance to make quarterfinal or semifinal is in Roland Garros as her game fits really well on clay.

I am not impressed at all by Urszula Radwanska. Yes she is Agnieszka's sister but she has yet to prove alot.

I think you're being a bit overconfident.
