Who is the most talented current German player?

Who do you think has the most talent of these girls, i.e. the goods to win a Major title?

Re: Who is the most talented current German player?

Don't know about major winning potential, but I like Angelique's combination of court craft and power the most.

Re: Who is the most talented current German player?

I'm torn between Kerber and Goerges but I like a lot about both of these ladies.

Lisicki at Wimbledon or Goerges at the French.

Re: Who is the most talented current German player?

It's between Goerges and Kerber. Petko puts in the work, but not a supreme talent. Lisicki - who knows...


It's later than you think...

Re: Who is the most talented current German player?

Changes from week to week, from surface to surface. If you ask me, who´ll be ranked the higehst on average over the next five years, it is easily a healthy Petkovic.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: Who is the most talented current German player?

If anyone is watching the Dubai final, this first set alone shows why I voted for Goerges. She's a fighter.

I don´t think, that that many people know Annika, so she wouldn´t get many votes.
She did not make any impact on the WTA-Tour yet.

Petko, maybe Angelique but haven't seen enough matches from her. Sabine and Julia are too inconsistent.

Re: Who is the most talented current German player?

Petkovic is easily the least talented of them. I think Kerber has the most natural talent for tennis.
