Hopefully Madison Keys. She has the game, but just needs the maturity & experience. She also has the attitude of wanting to acheive..

|Serena | Venus | Madison Keys | Monica Puig | Naomi Osaka | Jelena Ostapenko | Ana Konjuh | Taylor Townsend | Victoria Duval|

Truth. Even though it would've been hard to choose between her & Maddie. Most likely Maddie, due to her results so far, but Taylor is making strides.

I'd say Maddy or Taylor. But right now, none of the US youngsters look like they'll take the mantle from Serena.

One or two might crack the top 10 but I don't think any of them will fulfill the void Serena will leave.

Sloane. Why not?

Hampton is forever hampered by something and has a whole ton of points to defend at Eastbourne, which is the only thing keeping her top 50.

Davis is too tiny.

Keys has moved up a grand total of ONE place since Wimbledon and struggles to connect with 3 consecutive shots in a rally.

Tay-To has definite potential but "that which has been mentioned to death" will likely hold her back in WTA matches.

...Karolinas - Woz, the Great & Powerful K-Plis

...one Grass Court Colossus - KvittyGOAT ...and her Dark Half - S***ra

Re: which American player will take over when Serena and Venus are gone??

Hoping for Keys but she needs a good coach to get her mentality right.

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.

These players are so underwhelming.
