A little correction the Check is Nicole Vaidisova - you forgot about her. Karatantcheva is Bulgarian :D

Otherwise, for the USA it may be Kirkland (I think she is American?!). Poor girl she drew Svetlana in the first round so nobody talked about her.

Another edit: Krajicek for the Netherlands

I'll go for Peng, she just needs to improve her serve and she's a top 10 in groundstrokes already.

Also, sesil, when this girl matures. This girl is ambitious and have talent.

Be wellcome :).

We may also add to the list Ferguson, she is 18 isn't she? Very well playing young Aussie. I hope she do well in the future. And there are some 14yrs old that will come this year or the year after 2005 season (Tamira, TImea etc.etc.).

israeli shahar peer! :bounce:

but i think most of this listed is players that are already succesfull.... i mean - top 200 is really good.
we keep thinking that only top 20 is pro tennis, but hey - the game has developed. there are tons of girls waiting for a chance.
i think that even though the russians are dominant - the czechs have the best youngsters in the world.

Yes, I sort of agree. Though I think JJ is more talented than Ana, she will really have to get serious about her career if she is to achieve what she by all means should. Ana's attitude has been much more professional so far and I think it will lead her to a better career.
