she's very good. you can't really tell how good someone is going to be until they actually achieve on the biggest stage, but considering she won a round in zurich (a small draw tier I) as a 14 year old and has done very well in juniors and on the challenger circuit you have to think she is going to have a great career. then again swiss players seem to have a thing about not doing as much as they can with their potential for a number of different reasons (see patty schnyder, myriam casanova, miroslava vavrinec, and even martina hingis).

she's great and cool, but as switz has pointed out, we've seen it all before, especially with mikaelian and casanova, and they didn't make it (though they're both still young, and i hope they can manage a turnaround).

Timi will make it, so long as she avoids orange juice guru's and Career Con men. ;)

If she is 15 or under, she has a chance. If she is older than 15, then no, she isn't the next Hingis. At 16, you should already be top 40 if you are on track to become a world class champion.

every player matures in their own time, there's no law of nature that says a player has to be a prodigy at 15 in order to become a GS winner. That's a really outdated way of thinking. For example, Justine Henin was almost 19 before she broke into the Top 40 in early 2001.

She is 15 and 2 months. This year she has: gotten to the semis of juniors Oz Open, won a 50k challenger in France in April, gotten to the semis of juniors French Open, and won a 25k challenge in Italy.

What exactly is "make it" ??

Casanova and MGM aren't exactly total flops.

Casanova and MGM aren't exactly total flops.How about: be @ least a "dangerous floater" @ Tier II or better; or win regularly @ the lower Tiers (ala Smash). And when MGM won Tashkent '02 (the only WTA title for either) it was such a weak draw that @ #50 she was The Top seed; winning it moved her up one whole spot in the next week's rankings. Eggy, is either one ANY kind of threat for a "Tier II or better" title?
:confused:

i speak more of their injury problems for not producing. i think the thread starter means is she going to be the next hingis ie be right at the top of the game and not fall out of the top 100 like myriam and marie have (myriam is back now). obviously they must be mean top 5 or whatever because patty's basically top 15 so it's not as though they don't have anybody.

Martina Hingis was not the Swiss star...Patty was......I thought that's common knowledge;).
Martina Hingis is an international star no less though.
Timea might hit top 20 sooner or later, but I really Patty is probably more talented.
Otherwise we would've heard about her hype by now.

Martina Played for Switzerland, Lives in Switzerland and is a citezin of Switzerland hence that makes her a Swiss Star, though the likes of Patty, Myriam were raised and Born in Switzerland,

I geuss Maria isn't a Russian Star Either because she has lived in the States for main part of her life :confused:

Timea hasn't created much Hype regarding herself so theirs not the pressure for her to be expected to preform like Maria every single moment, So having little pressure, she can evolve at her own pace.

Swiss and People who follow the Juniors/Challengers will know of her, and I expect alot of her.

A lack of life :o :p ;)Actually Bitch, while the Schnyder Saga is no longer a "Top 5" scandal in professional tennis (as I told CC himself a few months ago) its still a "canary in the coal mine" type "barometer" to some extent. Perhaps if Peppermint Patty were a lesbian, you'd find things wrong here! :rolleyes:

If you want to be picky then Timea is also from Slovakia (or Romania :scratch: ) which makes her just a little bit more like Martina ;)

And yes Patty is very talented but when the hell is she going to show it :mad: :sad: Its often the very talented ones who lack the work ethic.

I think Timea is of Hungarian origin, although I could be wrong about that! :)

Go Timea! :bounce: :bounce:

Both of Timea Baczinsky's parents are Hungarian origin, but the family are full Swiss (Francophone) citizens. And the poster who noted that Patty, not Hingis, was always the bigger star inside Switzerland, was correct. Even today you can know that just from reading the gossip rags, although the interest in Patty is less than it once was. Hingis was much more an "international" star. She was never "Unsere Martina" in the way that Schnyder is "Unsere Patty".

Timea has more normal parents and family life than either Hingis or Schnyder had while growing up in the junior system, and better relations with Swiss Tennis than the Mikaelian clan, thus Timea may be better equipped to reach her full potential on the WTA Tour and become a new champion for Switzerland.

Mary Joe mentioned it when commentating Patty's match...that's how I knew:).
I thought Timea's sounds exotic...;)....not sure if she was born and raised in Switzerland though.
If she is good enough for us to care if she is Hungarian or not, then she'll be close to making herself a star.
