Are Petra and Vika the hope of Generation Suck?

Base on what I've seen this year, these 2 are the best of generation suck. I kno Caro won 6 title and Aga also won 3 but I don't think their potential is kinda fading away. Or will caro proves next year that her 2 in a row #1 year end isn't a fluke and produce marverlous tennis and snatch a couple of slam next year? Or can aga get her serve better and step up to her potential? Because right now it's:
1/Petra
2/Vika
3/Caro

4/Aga

Re: Are Petra and Vika the hope of Generation Suck?

Azarenka has done much less than Wozniacki. She has two Miami titles, a Madrid F, and a Wimbledon SF. F or W at the YEC. Wozniacki is clearly the #2 or maybe even #1 of the group so far.

The Azarenka hype storm never dies. It's kind of amazing.

I kno Vika had done much less than Caro...but level of play this year I'd say Vika is up a notch and in the events they've both entered Vika has gone further in most of them.

No, she hasn't. Of the 16 events they've both played, eight times Azarenka has gone further in the draw than Wozniacki and it's exactly the same vice-versa.

Re: Are Petra and Vika the hope of Generation Suck?

Kvitova clearly is head and shoulders above the rest.

Everybody's battling for second. It's between Caro and Vika. Vika SHOULD be further along, but for some reason it isn't coming out.

Always bet on black!

Re: Are Petra and Vika the hope of Generation Suck?

If I'm counting correctly, Azarenka went further in:

-Sydney
-Miami
-Madrid
-Roland Garros
-Wimbledon
-Toronto
-Tokyo
-YECs

Wozniacki:

-Australian Open
-Dubai
-Doha
-Indian Wells
-Stuttgart
-Rome
-US Open
-Beijing

However, Vika retired in Indian Wells, Stuttgart, Rome and Beijing.

Re: Are Petra and Vika the hope of Generation Suck?

Vika definitely would be the leader of "Generation Suck" as long as she gets her body fit and her head together


Faves: Sharapova, Hantuchova, Safarova, Goerges
GO BEARS!

Re: Are Petra and Vika the hope of Generation Suck?

Petra is so far ahead of the rest of 'Generation Suck' it's not even funny. Azarenka has impressed me this week - her anticipation is better than I thought, and she does seem to have some flair to her game - and she'll certainly be one of the top players for the next 5 years atleast, but I really don't know if I see her actually winning a Slam... maybe she'll get one or two (I'd guess the Australian Open is her best chance? Her game seems to prosper on slow hardcourts), but I just think there's always going to be a clutch of players better than her who'll be waiting for her in the later rounds of most Slams.

I still think Pavlyuchenkova has the ability to be a multi-Slam champion and be the 2nd best of this generation - but whether she ever gets her mind and fitness to the level where her game is is another matter.

Re: Are Petra and Vika the hope of Generation Suck?

Kvitova is definitely the best of her "generation" right now. The problem is that that's not saying much. Five years ago, a player like her or Azarenka would have barely been in the top 10. (the fact that Serena, Maria, Kim, and other older players can still hang with those players despite being nowhere near as good as they once were attests to this). If the players of her generation don't improve significantly, I can see their quickly being eclipsed by younger players. (That, of course, assumes that there will be more good, young players coming, and I haven't seen many signs of that...)

You've missed the point. We're talking about quality of tennis, not results.

I'll take the Azarenka of Stanford '10, Miami '11, Serena USO loss '11, Kvitova W + YEC losses '11 over any Wozniacki ever.

Yes, Kvitova and Azarenka are our best hopes for quality and a top rivalry. I do like Radwanska though because of her flat-ball hitting, creativity, comparatively little fear of the net, etc.

+1
today even tho she lost to kvitova, her game wasn't bad it was just petra was damn good. and after the 5-0 first set i thought she was gonna be a gonna but she prove me wrong for the second time this year (first one was the serena USO match). And if she can work on her serve in this off season and skilled it and gives it more power she and petra might be the next big rivalry.
as for aga, i don't watch her game that much but these last few months she has shown lots of improvement.

I am impressed with Petra she won Wimbledon she's head and shoulders above the rest. She has a huge serve, good variety and volleys.

I am disappointed with Azarenka she continues to LOSE the big matches. She doesn't have a great serve and she doesn't have variety.

Wozniacki is the least talented out of the three she has a crap forehand and a crap serve.
