Just like years past, with a "group" of people dominating, will this year be "The Year of the Youngsters"

2001- Year of the Americans...Capriati winning 2 GS, Venus winning 2

2002- Year of the Williamses- Serena wins 3, Venus reaches finals.

2003- Year of the Belgians- Justine wins 2, Kimmy reaches finals, both reach world number one

2004- Year of the Russians- 3 Different Russian GS Champs.

2005- ????????

Itís difficult to imagine three young players each winning a major title or one winning a couple of titles. Well Sharapova is still in the age bracket of 'Young' players. And she's already won a slam title.I just cannot imagine if the likes of Serena, Maria, Lindsay, Kim and Justine are in fine fettle. Being beaten by any other opponents than the group of 5. For me some of the players who have wons slams, haven't improved, in fact they seemed to have gone backwards, maybe this is a reaction to winning a major title.
