Re: 16 successive junior slams in a row won by different girls: WTA's future reflecti

I don't know why people always use the AER to justify most of these players not making any mark on the WTA.

The last top players to not be subjected to the AER were Hingis and Venus, and Venus barely played until she was 17 anyway. From Serena and Anna onwards, every player has been subject to the same restrictions, yet players such as the aforementioned, Kim, Justine, Maria, Ivanovic, Vaidisova, Golovin etc. have all excelled at young ages.

The reason for this is purely down to the fact that they are/were far better, talented and more capable players than the upcoming bunch. With better mentalities as well.

Re: 16 successive junior slams in a row won by different girls: WTA's future reflecti

I don't think we'll get many different Grand Slam winners. I think there will be a small group of outstanding players who are head and shoulders above the rest and then the also-rans. The outstanding ones will not necessarily be the recent junior Grand Slam winners but the generation before such as Wozniacki, Safina, Ivanovic, Rezai or Kvitova. They might be joined by Gavrilova, Robson and Stephens in the scramble for Grand Slam wins.

I think it's unlikely we'll have so many different winners. I think Robson will dominate winning the majority of the Slams but there will be some crumbs left for other up-and-coming players (Stephens, Watson, Kichenok, Khromacheva). As the older better players retire Rezai, Wickmayer and Petkovic could grab one or two as well. And I also expect De Brito to climb up the rankings as well.

Re: 17 successive junior slams in a row won by different girls: WTA's future reflecti

last junior AO winner who has won a slam : Sue Barker 1975
last junior fo winner who has won a slam : Justine Henin 1997
last junior wy winner who has won a slam : Amélie Mauresmo 1996
last junior us winner who has won a slam : Lindsay Davenport 1992

And I think that only 19 GS junior titles (out of 235) have been won by future GS champ.

Junior slams are not important at all. It tells nothing about WTA.

Re: 17 successive junior slams in a row won by different girls: WTA's future reflecti

I think even if another great talent came up, there is so much money in the sport now, I'm not sure if any player in the future will try to max out their career.
Dementieva should not have retired healthy in her 20's, but she's a multi-millionaire and has options.

When you read about fashion lines, and selling products, these are new distractions that come from having the high profile endorsement deals

The Navratilova days are over. Great players wont have long careers at the top anymore, imo

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: 17 successive junior slams in a row won by different girls: WTA's future reflecti

This really is an astonishing streak. I wonder how long it will last. And yeah, I do believe that it suggests that there will be fewer dominant players in the future. It also makes it very difficult to figure out which of the juniors will go on to win slams.

Juniors are not important.They don't tell you anything about future WTA and GS stars.
Some players even said they didn't commit much in their junior carreer and they didn't even think it was necessary.
You shouldn't just have some talent and nice groundstrokes - you have to be powerful in mind,to dedicate your life to tennis,to train hard,travel wherever you have to,deal with media and sponsor problems,etc.
There are so many fallen stars,because hero is the characteristic of heart.

Somewhat misleading as in recent years Junior Slam RUs have gone on to do great things.

Kvitova * Garcia * Konjuh * Dodin * Robson * Haddad Maia

Re: 17 successive junior slams in a row won by different girls: WTA's future reflecti

There are very few top players that don't have a past in the juniors: Hingis won several major as a kid; Kuznetsova reached the number one ranking in the girl's singles and some major finals; Jankovic won the Australian Open as a junior; Kim Clijsters won the French Open doubles title with Jelena Dokic and reached the Wimbledon final as a girl, just like Ivanovic; Dementieva won the Orange Bowl; Sharapova played (but lost) two major finals (AO & Wimbledon); ...

They might not always be the ones who actually win the titles, but most future top players can be spotted in the juniors.
