Who do you think will be the next teenager to win a slam?

I'm not going to create a poll because I wouldn't know who to include.

Discuss.

I don't think any of the current star-teens can claim the slam before they reach 20. Maybe Vaidisova, because she is still only 17, but her mental side ain't at the necessary level now. Golovin is also good, but still a little unconsistent. Others have not good enough game yet. Alas the only one competitive teen is Sharapova.

As much as I HATE Vaidisova. It will most likely be her. :banghead:

hmmm... the BIG question in my head is will they still be teens when they win it tho? :o
So Ana doesn't look to have good prospects... she has the next 4 and that's it...
Nicky and Tati have somewhat better chances... but...

Seriously I think we won't see a new teen slam winner for quite a while (the best bet is Masha at AO 07 but she's already got two)

So I'm taking a long shot and say my answer is.......
Aga Radwanska... who knows what her future holds?

I think Golovin, Ivanovic, and Vaidisova all have the potential to win a slam, but like morningglory said, I don't know if they'll be teens when they do it.

The next teenager to win a slam will be Sharapova. :bounce:

Not counting Sharapova I say Nicole will be the next teenager to win a slam. :)

She's the most consistent of all of the teenagers not counting Masha.

She's been on empty for awhile, but she's played good tennis here and there during the indoor season.

If she's fresh in Australia then I expect her to go far @ the AO with her serve/forehand combo. :D

To clear things up, I meant that whoever it is will win a slam while they're still a teenager.

Maybe Jayden Gill Agassi Graf .

Oh wait .. he 'll play in the ATP -

Sharapova - Australian Open 2007 (her last slam as a teen)

Radwanska - Wimbledon 2008

Maria K. has really stagnated. Look at my Russian Watch thread for her year-to-year results.

We can only hope and pray:angel: She's still young and there's still room for improvement though.;) She's got a new coach so it's just wait and see in 2007! I like her chances of winning a doubles title slam with Ana Ivanovic (hottest women's doubles team imo) if they continue to play together.:hearts:

i must agree with everyone here.. next to Maria.. it is Vaidisova who is consistently playing well at this moment among the teens on tour.. Yeah and Golovin has a chances too as long as she'll play consistently like the two i mentioned above.. I also admire Ivanovic style of game.. Next to Golovin, Ana has chances too.. I'd been waiting for Makiri to shine again but i guess not at this season.. PErhaps 2007 might be her year! 2007 might be THEIR year.. Hopefully one of them would have their own Slam next year.

GO VAIDI,TATI, ANA & MAKIRI! :D :D :D

Really hard 2 tell who will be the next teenager 2 win a slam title besides sharapova. right now i probably could see ana winning one, but i dunno which one though. personally i just cannot see nicole winning one in her teenage years at the moment until she wins a tier II or tier I title next year.

Nicole Vaidisova!!

Serge007
Oct 30th, 2006, 06:35 AM
no one. because they cannot beat Hehin, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Mauresmo, Clijsters, Hingis, Petrova, Dementieva...

Even Sveta cannot win the second GS, and you speak Nicole, Ana...

kittyking
Oct 30th, 2006, 06:40 AM
Vaidisova, Ivanovic (shes really inconsistent which could help her win a slam (watch out for her to loose Round 1 in the tournament previous to a slam)), Pavlyushenkova, Krajicek (I wish), Erakovic

I don't think any of the current crop of teens will even get a slam in their careers, and I think the next teen slam winner won't probably happen until about 2012

I disagree, its early days yet for Nicole and Tatiana has improved her game alot this year (a couple of years ago she would be absolutely slaughtered by the top players, now they are all pretty close). Also Pavluchenkova is basically unbeatable on the junior tour

Is Schnyder a teenager?

tennisrox
Oct 30th, 2006, 10:05 AM
I don't see any of the current crop of hyped-ones winning slams as teenagers, except perhaps Golovin. But she's still too injury-prone, and not mentally tough enough at this point, so perhaps we'll have to wait a few years.

:rolleyes:

So, I suppose the general answer would be Vaidisova and/or Ivanovic.

Honestly, I think it'll be quite some time before we see someone winning a slam in their teenage years. I just can't see any of the current teens winning slams while Mauresmo, Henin-Hardenne, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Petrova, etc. are still around.
