Didn't Capriati have an amazing run at her first slam? That's before I started following tennis though.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Dokic had a great run in W 1999 ? As a Q she beat Hingis in round 1 to reach QF or SF ?

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

So 4 teenagers have made it to the MD. I always love that Roland-Garros often provides the most newcomers to Grand Slam MDs.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

It was Stevenson the one who made SF

But anyway, both girls had played in GS MD before.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

OP updated with RG 2010 debutantes, who didn't fare all that well in their first GS. Then again the debutantes were mostly somewhat random, and those that weren't got bad 1R draws.

For the English Open, we already have a guaranteed debutante: indoor legend La Push.

BTW I'm considering adding those players who made their Slam MD debut through WCs, and identifying those who got in on ranking.

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson


Eu Jogo Ténis


Prokofiev + Son Goku = pwnage

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Order of likeliness:
1.Hlavackova - She should win rather easily.
2.Garcia Vidagany - This one is slightly in Arn's favour, but Garcia Vidagany has some chances.
3.Tomljanovic - Kaia has been playing well, but the other 2 stand almost no chance.
4.Namigata - She only has a chance if Niculescu has an off-day. She is too tired to even play a third set, I would guess.
5.Whybourn - Can't see her making it, although I have never seen her playing. But she did not beat anyone of note in qualifying.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

It's too bad Ajla has the toughest opponent, she's by far the most interesting potential debutante.

I don't think I would go that far, I did get to see a bit of Ajla in the last couple of days and she does have a nice mix of power and finesse and is using both well but I am still thrilled to see Andrea finally making a nice move up the rankings in the last 12 months. If she can maintain that momentum there is no reason why she can't be top 100 within a few months or even weeks and she too does have a very refreshing game with a lot of very flat hitting and so many of her groundies just barely creeping over the net.
