I still remember Oudins match with Dementieva in Paris!

Mel was playing Top 10 tennis and she was sick(literally)!! Bring that form back to 2013 Mel!!

Top Ten: Martic and Martic only (especially for a significant amount of time).

- 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: Will any of these players born in 1991 make it to top 20 or top 10?

First post on this forum so thanks for having me.

As someone born in 1991, I follow players born in 1991 a bit more closely to others.

So far, Oudin's achieved bugger all in terms of expectations.

Reckon Kiki will nudge top 20 (Nastia's already done that) with Camila, Polona and Ksenia not that far behind.

Valeria Savinykh could also go close.

Any chance Elixane Lechemia (born September 3 1991 like myself) will nudge top 100?

I agree with this. Martic has plateaued, which may be injury related, but she's got the game for Top 20. Its early for Bertens, but she's definitely got a lot of potential (played outstanding this week ) and she is the one I think could make Top 10. I would add Bojana as a maybe, but its a longer shot.

Top 20 maybe but I struggle to see any in Top 10 although I wouldn't have predicted Errani or Kerber as Top 10.

Pity 1991 is so poor it's my year of birth

The 1991-1992 were a real washout weren't they? 1991 is filled with players who broke through quite quickly and stagnated even quicker, and 1992 has pretty much only McHale and Watson who have done well at tour level.

There is an argument that could be made that it is harder today to get into the top tier at a young age than it was 10/20/30 years ago. The older players are much bigger, stronger, are fitter (most have conditioning coaches) and have more powerful equipment options than when the Grafs, Seles, Everts, Williams sisters were coming up.

If you look at the top 30, only 4 were born after 1/1/90( Kvitova, Woz Cirstea and Paszek) and of the top 15, a big majority were born in the early and mid 80s.

Some of the list could mature and get much better, surprising some of us. There could be others further down that could come out of the blue. Who would have ever thought about Kerber or Lepchenko two years ago and Errani was a journeywoman singles player for several years.

jovanovski is so hit and miss, bit i expect she'll end up with enough "hits" that she makes the top 20. she just needs a little bit more consistency, and she's got a top 20 game imo.

Come on the Bhoys!
