Keys upsetting Kerber will be the equivalent of Laura upsetting Kvitova, Li and Clijsters. Keys hasn't done it yet but Laura has already done it three times.

not quite... Kerber was beaten by Laura in Wimbledon before and she's not GS champion.

The poster is being ridiculous. Ignore them.

Re: Who will have the biggest career, Stephens, Robson or Keys

Madison and Laura need to work on movement. Sloane needs to work on that backhand.

Sounds easy enough

I'm just too lazy to go to the US Open.

If Vekic calms a bit down and she should really be up there.

I'm all alone with my delusions

Re: Who will have the biggest career, Stephens, Robson or Keys

If I were a top player I'd have my eye on Keys. Robson and Stephens might become decent players but Keys could be scary good.

Re: Who will have the biggest career, Stephens, Robson or Keys

I'd say Keys has a higher chance of becoming a top player than Stephens, but she also has a much higher chance of never becoming a relevant player at all. Her game is far too one-dimensional right now, and unfortunately it is much easier to form a solid, average player into a killing machine than a glass canon into a sustainable tennis player. There were so many young players with big game, just missing finesse, a little movement and defense improvement who turned to nothing, searching for that precious "zone" that kept avoiding increasingly.

About Robson, well, I've seen her playing absolutely top quality tennis (much better than anything I've seen from Stephens or Keys), but then again she plays dozens of awful matches without any indication of improvement on any noticeable dimension.

As a conservative, I'd go with Stephens. She already is an established player and doesn't need to change anything fundamentally to become a top player.

Re: Who will have the biggest career, Stephens, Robson or Keys

I think as far as upswing and potential: Keys > Robson > Stephens

But in terms of being a steady and consistent player and having more even results I would say: Stephens > Keys > Robson

Potential for slams: Keys = Robson > Stephens

A longer run in the top 20: Stephens > Robson = Keys

It never hurts to present our crystal balls, but importantly we'll learn a lot more about all three players in the next nine months.
