Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

In the post-match interview Serena mentioned how she believed Sloane can be the best in the world one day. Do you agree?

I do, because Sloane's forehand

If she maintains her focus, will she achieve Serena's prediction?

I don't know if Serena believes everything she says.

Re: Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

I never like to hype players that much, but I think Sloane can be a solid top 20 player for sure. How high she gets in the top 20 remains to be seen.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

Serena also called Azarenka the world's best player in that same interview.

So maybe Serena means Sloane will be Number 1 but still the absolute pigeon of the world Number 3?

She's definitely a future top 10 player that's for sure. Miles and miles of talent in that girl.

Re: Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

It's obviously still up in the air

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Her flaws outweight her strenghts, so no.

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

Re: Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

I voted yes, but really it's still up in the air. However, to be near the top 20 at 19 years old, the hype is not entirely unjustified. There have been top ten players made of much less than Sloane's forehand, so I believe she could be top 5. The questions remain will her backhand and second serve improve? I don't know, but she does have a weapon, and that is something you can't teach or earn.

coming from ''i have nothing to lose'' serena
