next big thing? its very rare that we see a junior who will be the next big thing, which i define as atleast top ten...

no juniors even the current best juniors Kirsten Flipkens and Krajicek dont look like a shoe-in for the next 'big thing'..

but certainly Ivanovic and the other juniors should atleast be able to become established on the tour and get far, but the transition is tough..

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Sorry but as Fraga's worshipper I just hope Marta beats her

i was just being realistic rad. you know im a fan of ana and i wish she can make it on the main tour...shes had good results winning eddie herr at 13!!!!! and nearly beating Flipkens(eventual champ( at wimbeldon, but there's such a long way to go and not just for ana but ALL the juniors including the top player Kirsten BEFORE we can start making predictions that they are gonna be a challenge to the establishment (ie the toip).

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

I looooove Ana but...
she didn't win Eddie Herr at 13, but at 15. She won it in 2002 and she was born on November 6 1987.
I believe in her, she's the greatest hope for us, but, to say she's the next big thing, as in future top 10, is exaggerated to say the least. Top 50 (maybe 40) will be more than OK.

Ana is 16 and ranked in the 700's, some players like Sharapova who people are calling the next big thing is 16 and ranked 32. So Ana still has a long way to go.

Marta Fraga bt Ana Ivanovic 6-4 5-7 6-4.
Sorry for Ana's fan, but the match was really close

I'm glad for Marta, great week and great one for Ana as well
