Jovanovski seems to me more as a power grinder rather than hitter, but talent wise Julia easily trumps both

Goerges. Groth will have streaky career, Jovanovski will be similar to Jankovic probably :shrug:

Goerges, she deserves it as well. Groth hasn't worked enough on her weaknesses which are her mentality during her matches (body language), also returning, expecting to hit a winner on every shot..these things are letting her down, otherwise i would have voted for Groth. Bojo is also a talent however needs to work more on her stamina/match fitness, she can become fatigued when it comes to a close 3 set match.

Groth is the most talented without any doubt.

But who will have the best career? I don't know.

Georges just has a serve. Her groundstrokes are inconsistent & all over the place. Just missed a forehand early in the 2nd set that weekend hackers make 99%. Just put it in the open court, but no, she blasts it long.
Groth has a good game, far better than these other 2, and needs to stop getting so nervous.
Not sure about BJ. She also is all over the place.

I think Julia will have spend much of her career in the 10-25 region, occasionally getting a bit higher perhaps. She's a bit too inconsistent and doesn't have the mentality (yet, at least) to make it against the top players. She could easily win a lot of small titles and occasionally a big one (I'm thinking a few Premiers at least) but probably won't be getting near a GS trophy.

Jarmila will probably break into top 25 but not get much higher than that. She is even more inconsistent and just gets way too nervous. She strikes a beautiful ball and will definitely always be a threat, but I think her career highlights will probably be lots of Internationals and a few GS quarterfinals. She's a Kleybanova-type player.

As for Bojana, I really don't know. From what I've seen of her, she seems to be someone who looks to be aggressive but doesn't have sufficient firepower to completely overwhelm an opponent. She might prove me wrong, but I think her peak will be top 20, top 15 at best, but she might have a Fed Cup victory to remember when she retires.

I saw Groth playing Maria the the last USO
I saw Goerges playing Maria today
I saw Jovanovski palying Zvonareva yesterday

I would say Jovanovski because she's got a really heavy forehand and moves quite well.
She got to gain in fitness.

She's one of the worst competitors/matc players on tour though. And i have no idea whether that is reparable.

Maybe I've just watched her when she's been on hot streaks because I've been really impressed with her game the times I've watched her. Some kinks to work out here and there but I've not been impressed with Goerges as much as people hype her up and I think Jovanovski still has growing to do before we can really judge her.

Jovanovski - because she is the most clueless out of the 3, and beeing clueless is the best basement for a top player

Well I think Goerges' FH is better than Jovanovski's and Goerges has a great serve which can't be said for Bojo. I think Goerges will have the best career. Jovanovski is clearly talented but she lacks some aspects in her game. But she's the youngest and has time to improve. Groth is a bit too streaky. She can have a good day and score and upset and then lose to an unknown player. Additionally, she has to work on her on-court attitude.

Jovanovski, just based on how they hit the ball. There's something clean and simple about how Bojana hits the ball, be it the swing or the impact point. It reminds me of players of yore. She reminds me a little bit of Jankovic, Golovin, Azarenka in parts, except she seems like a superior ballstriker to all three.

She's also only 19, and is probably the only one whose game will continue to grow.

i think it's really sad for the women tennis that all the new comers are pushers or (brainless) hard hitters.
there are really no players with a good overall game, with a plan B or a smart tennis. Dropshots and volleys are memories which are fastly fading away.

Jovanovski listed in one sentence with Groth and Goerges as a big hitter? :lol:
The order:
1. Georges
2. Jovanovski
...
3. Groth

Match against Vera was the first time I have seen Jovonovski. She looked promising, but has to lose that gut or she will be doomed to be Kleybanova 2.0--lethal from the center of the court, but harmless if you get her running. Serve is only so so atm.

Groth shows flashes of brilliance only to come up with a stinker at inopportune moments. She has a lot of pace on her serve and a good kick, but I like Goerges serve better because of her placement. I think over time she is less likely to have problems with it than Groth. Also like Julia's fh better, plus I think she is a craftier player who's tougher mentally and who really showed a lot of improvement last year. If she keeps that up, she can go far. Not to mention that with her looks, the slightest bit of success will get the hype machine going overtime.

All of them are mugs. I can's see any of these girls be a threat for Top 10. Groth has one of the worst returns I've ever witnesed, Goerges is slow as snail, has poor footwork and Jovanovski is just a bad parody of Jankovic. Can't decide which one will have better career, but age speaks for Jovanovski. Anyway, she's going to be pretty average...there are tons of bigger talents.

My vote goes to Jovanovski.

Jarmila and Julia have bigger games, but Bojana moves better than both of them and is more consistent on a day in/day out basis. I'd also think she was the best competitor of the three(though that isn't saying much considering...)

Temperenka
Jan 21st, 2011, 04:45 PM
Jarmila and Julia have both been around for a whole. While they are late bloomers I guess you could say, I don't think either will break into the top 10.

Bojana is still so young and having success. I'll say her. She has more time to work it out. I think she'll be top 10 and be a consistent threat at slams.

Who is Groth ? What is Groth ? Just an overrated invisible ballbashing entity, the Ozzie Oudin, who has yet to show something consistent on the tour and she still gets so much credit for having so much useless loses and chokes (...) :lol:

Where was she and so said brilliance when her event needed her and when Bojana and Julia both showed incredible skills, promises for the future and potential against 2 top players ? :lol:

(1) Julia
(2) Bojana
(...) the inverse could be also true.

I think Julia has a more all around game and therefore should have the better career on a more consistent basis than the other 2.

Where? There seems to be a dearth.

well, if we speak about girls under or twenty, there is Pavlyuchenkova (already Top 20 and yet to fully develope), younger Radwanska (coming from injury), Vandeweghe (beating top players left and rght), Laura Robson, Heather Watson...those are future stars. Also some pretty good juniors like Gavrilova, Putintseva, Svitolina. I wouldn't call it dearth, it's just about time.

So far, all together, they have a few Mickey mouse titles and Groth has 2 Round of 16 losses at majors.
So lets see what they do. The World #1 is 20, and a lot more accomplished. Kvitova was just in a Wimbledon SF. I dont know if these are joining those.

All WTA big-hitters do this from time to time. Still, one feels safer watching Goerges than most. She does have great natural timing and thus superior accuracy to a lot of the power players. Her backhand is vastly underrated.

I am excited most by Julia's future. I like them all but think Groth will likely have a streaky career.

This is a joke, right? You expect Goerges to have a better career than Jankovic did? :lol:

I love Bojana, and think she has the most complete game--plus, she's constantly improving. She'll be ranked higher than both Groth and Goerges by the end of the year.

she is more fearless than other 2
other 2 well-known of choking

How about others like Cornet and Makarova? They are around the same age with Jovanovski the youngest and Groth the oldest.

Jovanovski but they should all get to top 20 at least :shrug:

only time will tell.. If Groth can handle herself well, she can be very good. She doesnt really have any weakness in her game, while Bojj and Georges definately have weaker serves
