Who are these girls?

Kotkina? Avakova? Villiamovskaya?

Are they from the same group as
Kuznetsova, Safina, Sharapova, Brattchikova?

Or are they even younger? Fourth wave?

Irina Kotkina was part of the Russian U14 team that won the World Junior Tennis in 2000 with Vera Douchevina & Dasha Tchemarda.

She hasn't done as well as those two.
Vera is just like Safina , tall , elegant and a shot maker.

Irina is 15 on Wednesday, 1m69 at last recorded height , like most Russians she has a 2H backhand

Sofia Avakova and Marina also both 15 , know less about her.

There are lots of others like these girls.

ys... another one to look out for is 14 yr old Evgenia Linetskaya ( WTA rank around 700 played 3 ITF 10K events all in Belgium in AUG reached final of 1st.
