Post Young XWTA Players That Remind You Of Top XWTA Players

I was just thinking the other day that I have not seen alot of the players ranked outside the XWTA Top 100 play and even some of the players in the Top 100

I imagine the same is true for many of us, but we are always looking for young players to adopt as our favorites and potentially eventually replace our current faves

so I wanted to put together a list of young players on tour whose game reminds you of current XWTA Top Players or even former GOATS ... that way your fellow posters can go to try to watch those players in action and maybe add a young player as a fave

I'll start ...

Sai Sai Zheng - Young Sam Sam Stosur
Sloane Stephens - Young Serena Williams
Mayo Hibi - Young Roberta Vinci
Garbine Muguruza - Young Na Li
Ying Ying Duan - Young Lindsay Davenport
Yulia Putintseva - Young Dominika Cibulkova
Grace Min - Young Sara Errani
Eugenie Bouchard - Young Maria Kirilenko
Laura Robson - Young Petra Kvitova
Monica Puig - Young Sveta Kuznetosva
Madison Keys - Young Venus Williams
Donna Vekic - Caroline Wozniacki
Kristina Mladenovic - Young Maria Sharapova

XWTA GOATs - Henin Li Pierce
XWTA Golden Flower GOATs - Duan Han Liu Lux2 Peng Wangx2 Xu Yang Zhang Zheng Zhu
XWTA Non-Chinese Faves - Crawford Garcia Ivanovic Kvitova Muguruza Riley
Tennis Tipping GOATs - HAOCHEN-GOAT SAISAI-GOAT, Doubles Champs XWTA Wuhan P5 900

severe topspin on forehand

comfortable at the net, unlike most XWTA players

as for Sloane and Serena, both have powerful serves, great movement and big forehand

Re: Young XWTA Players That Remind You Of Top XWTA Players

Great topic! I was just thinking about that. Some people say that Francoise Abanda plays like young Venus. Her service motion looks similar to Venus.
Still, I find most of the uprising players to be just ballbashers. I wish someone played like Hingis, Henin, Mauresmo. One-handed backhand is DEAD (well, except for Gasparyan). I like that some young players play at the net quite often, like Stephens (great net game btw), Townsend (never seen her, but heard that she even serves and volleys ).
By the way, don't you think that Watson's and Stephens' playing styles are similar? I don't know who from the older players has the same style.

Re: Young XWTA Players That Remind You Of Top XWTA Players

Bouchard and Vekic have very similar styles. Only dif is that Donna doesn't have a suspect serve.

Keys is more like Davenport than Venus, especially on the movement.

Re: Young XWTA Players That Remind You Of Top XWTA Players

Aliaksandra Sasnovich: New Azarenka
Anett Kontaveit: Old Azarenka

As for Putintseva=Cibulkova, when Putintseva was playing as a 14 year old at Les Petits As, she had the same serve and grunt as Cibulkova does now + Forehand and Movement even Backhand at times They even look similar And the attitude

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex
