Is there any teen girls that could be a threat to Vika, Maria, Petra?

With Serena having about 4 more years left (said she wants to do Rio 2016), are there any teen girls (19 or under) that could challenge Kvitova, Vika, or Maria when Serena retires?

I'm going to be honest, just by gut feeling alone I think Taylor Townsend may have a chance to challenge them, and maybe even be a GS contender and reach #1. I also think Sloane Stephens & Sam Crawford are girls to watch out for.

I barely follow the junior girls, so I only know of American girls, but are there other girls that could compete for a GS in the future, and be a Top 5 player?

Hyper, I know, but Donna Vekic. She's just too good for her age
Also, I really believe in Madison Keys, she will be a top player
There are so many talented teenagers now! In a 2-3 of years, I believe they will open up
But challenge Vika, Maria and Petra? Not until like 2014

Garbine Muguruza Blanco, the Spanish 18 year old. All she needs is a serve, experience and maturity. Her ground game does a lot of damage when kept on the court.

Researched Madison Keys, wow she actually beat Serena in a set!?!?! O.o, never heard of her until now! Hopefully a bright future!

Also Garbine Blanco is very promising! These junior girls are very talented.

I think Sloane can make a run. She is so immature on the court. (Not personality - her game) Once her game matures and she understands tennis better, she is going to be lethal.

Stephens is too busy inventing some "deep" quotes on Twitter.
