sesil, nicole, vera d, maria k and golovin should have very nice careers. misa krajicek and alisa kleybanova are 2 other youngsters that could have very nice careers. i think ivana lisjak is quite talented also.

its too hard to pick who will have the best career at this point.

I agree with the votes so far, I'd say it's between Kirilenko and Golovin. I voted Kirilenko.

This is me being objective for once :p

IC Kirilenkova (nothing against her, BTW) is the flava of the month. I voted For Future French Femme, but The Trash Talker (along with her Not Named Next Nemesis Nicole) are pretty good bets, IMO.

I agree

May 29th, 2004, 12:42 PM
Oooh qall of them are pretty good, I cant pick just one, but Im paying close attention to Strycova, Golovin, Dulko, and Kirilenko

I voted for Golovin but it's very hard to say right now. They are all very good. It's very likely that the ones who seem more promising now, will have a letdown, and the others that are not so naturally talented will pass them coz they work harder.

Examples from the past - Kournikova, Lucic, Dokic, Stevenson, Henin, Myskina, Dementieva, Black, Krasnoroutskaya, Clijsters etc. Some peaked too soon, like reaching the SFs of a slam at a very young age(kournikova, stevenson, lucic, dementieva, dokic), while others took more time but caught up with them, and eventually passed them(Henin, Clijsters). And then there are others who were also junior no 1s, but had a tough time making their splash on tour (Black, and to a lesser extent, Krasnoroutskaya).

So I think it would be easier to ask "Who will get to the top15 or 10 faster", coz saying how their careers will be like at this stage, is very difficult

Ivanovic, Karatancheva, Golovin, Vaidisova and Kirilenko all have the potencial to reach the top 20

Domachowska - no tough I like her but she wont reach the top 50

Zheng- how old is she 21? I saw her playing in Vienna didnt impressed me too much, nice game but more :confused:

Shenay definately one to watch

Anna-Lena maybe top 30

May 29th, 2004, 01:03 PM
As I'll never lose my faith on her I'll say Marta Fraga :p Vamos!! :bounce: :p

ana ivanovic

Great poll, Spikey :yeah:
Loads of talent there. I voted for Barbora, don't know why.

May 29th, 2004, 02:26 PM
I expect the big Ivanovic/Karatancheva/Vaidisova rivalry in a few years. With Ana coming on top. :cool:

May 29th, 2004, 02:42 PM
I'm thinking Sesil the most...with Tati and Nicole close behind.

May 29th, 2004, 02:42 PM
I think that Shenay Perry will have a great career. She has the whole package in her game and doesn't have many weaknesses, except for the fact that isn't using her abilities to their fullest extent. As we've seen when Shenay started out the year out of the Top 140, she wasn't using her abilities but when she got to Auckland she finally started to go for everything. She's also kept consistent as some of the others on this poll haven't. If she can get her game going she can be ultimately one of the best.

May 29th, 2004, 03:12 PM
My opinion:

A lot of these players will have a great career but I think Sesil has the best potential,she can be number 1!
Kirilenko,Vaidisova,Ivanovic,Strycova, Masha Sharapova can reach the top 10 :kiss:
Kleybanova,Dulko are also very talented!

Sam stosur u fuck head :p

Also Cupac and Ferguson :D

Add Eden Marama aswell!

May 29th, 2004, 03:53 PM
Veronika Chvojkova, Kateryna Bondarenko, Volha Havartsova, Vika Azarenka, Irina Kotkina also.. :p

Still a little early to guess how Nicole, Sesil, Shahar will perform on tour.

But out of the players who have been on tour for awhile, I'd say Kirilenko and Strycova will have the better careers. :hug:

May 29th, 2004, 04:59 PM
Dulko or Kirilenko (i hope)

May 29th, 2004, 05:10 PM
Laura Harkness :haha: :p

Julia dzeidic :)

Maria Kirrilenko, I think she will start to surpass other Russians in her 20's. She'll boom later than players like Sharapova since her style is different, however, she'll probably become the better player since she is a smart player and she does not hit soft:)

Timi's gotta break the "jinx" (0-4, I think) Against Another Name Not Mentioned, Misa Krajicek. ;)

May 29th, 2004, 08:23 PM
i said Maria last year so why I change my mind...Kirilenko no doubt :D
