**SUBSCRIBES**




EDIT: IMO though, it is Laura who will have the better career.


Sharapova | Watson | Muguruza | Konta | Broady | Bencic | Robson | Cirstea | Lisicki

Way too early to make a call. I'd say it's 50/50 at the moment.

I'll say Laura because I'm biased. However, it's just impossible to predict, especially since they're so early in their careers.

I think Laura has bigger potential, but you never know. A lot depends on health, motivation, team members etc. which none of us is able to predict (or even qualify the current conditions they have to work on their game).

Re: Who will have the better career: Sloane Stephens or Laura Robson?

I just don't get it, why all the hype for Laura Robson? She's not that spectacular ? Kristina mladenovic? Heather Watson? Anyone heard of them ? Especially heather?? Why ain't the media interested in her? Is it cos she's black???? I really don get it!!

Robson def. Clijsters
Robson def. Li
Robson def. Kvitova

Watson, Stephens, Mladenovic have no big wins yet.

There was a similar thread a few days ago including Madison Keys into the mix. It was multiple choice, so you could gauge basically the same result you would here.

It seems Laura is the captain for this generation.

That Heather's development has been a couple of years behind Laura since they were juniors is one reason. Laura's power game being easier to talk up is another. There's also Laura's slam performances being more impressive by a considerable margin.

Omg... stop.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.
