Re: most exciting prospect under 18??

I meant to vote for Ana Konjuh. Or rather, I voted for Donna like a robot and then remembered that Ana beat Ursula earlier this year at Fed Cup a few months after turning 15, scoring a Top 30 win that soon is very precocious in this day and age.

Re: most exciting prospect under 18??

I think that both Vekic and Konjuh can be very succesful in the future, and I feel that some other young players who are not that strong already can also do well in the future.

Her result have been pretty decent on the tour this year and If I right she is or not close too cracking the top 300, as for as her technique goes you can be success in tennis with any technique

S. Williams (23) ♦ V. Williams (7) ♦

M. Keys ♦ S. Stephens ♦ CiCi Bellis ♦ T. Townsend ♦ V. Duval ♦ L. Chirico ♦ S. Crawford ♦ R. Kingsley ♦ K. Day ♦ A.Anisimova ♦ W. Osuigwe ♦ J. Daniel

Re: most exciting prospect under 18??

If taking the title seriously, most exciting are Ash and Taylor who are very good doubles players at such a young age, in fact Barty is in the Top 20 with a Wta title and 2 GS finals this year.

If asking who will have most success, it is between Ash and Donna in my opinion. Also I think Konjuh can be good, but havent seen enough of her. Problem for Taylor is her fitness and lack of senior match play atm.

Re: most exciting prospect under 18??

Ana Konjuh so far has the most impressive transition from juniors to pro tennis, rising up the ranks very fast so I voted for her.

2 GS finals, maybe? It's doubles, but none of these players reached anything closer

Re: most exciting prospect under 18??

In today's game, its impossible to know what how a young player develops.
The game is very physical, everyone has to deal with injuries
What happens now is like Oudin. The hype comes from a few wins, not from high quality play.
I cant see anyone younger than Stephens ready to be a US Open factor, and even Stephens needs a decent week 1 draw to get to week 2

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
