Next big teenager??

There are only two teenagers in the Top 100 (Timea Babos and Sloane Stephens).


Which is the most promising teenager outside the Top 100?


Yulia Putintseva? (born in 1995 and just won Cagnes-Sur-Mer)

Paula Ormaecheva? (born in 1992 and already # 1 in Argentina)

Garbine Muguruza Blanco (born in 1993 and had some really good results this year already)

Caroline Garcia (born in 1993, top-junior who almost beat Sharapova in Roland Garros last year)

Laura Robson (born in 1994, won Wimbledon jun. 4 years ago with 14 years)

Michelle Larcher de Brito (born in 1993 - still a junior - although almost a fallen star)

Kristina Mladenovic (born in 1993 and 200 km/h serve at Roland Garros 2 years ago)

Annika Beck (born in 1994 and next big German thing??)

Re: Next big teenager??

I was actually surprised the Larcher de Brito is still so young. She seems to be there (and struggeling) forever. But maybe there is still some hope! I really like her game - when it's on...

Most recently Babos' and Blanco's results were most impressive. Putintseva is by far the youngest but her game doesn't look that overwhelming to me...

Not sure. But I think it's safe to say the days of the Teen Queen are over.
