Amber is still the same age as Zheng Jie just a year younger maybe. I remember when you said you thought Wimbledon wasted their WC on Zheng and they should give it to younger girls from US like Amber when shes the same age almost.

I actually do hope Amber does get one though, bc she loves playingin Stanford. If she can crack through with a win this year it could be a confidence booster like no other for her.

this shows you know nothing about tennis at all. Oudin might be a top junior but like Kirkland she has nothing special. oh well :lol: you must be too obsessed about juniors tour and thought their achievement means the world when they turn pro :o

No,we chinese pay attention to her since 2001 or 2004.
We know something about her that America never know even though she now is an American.
But many years passed,she did nothing but get countless
WCs.I think endless WCs will damn her at all.
Micheal Chang may help her a lot in this years.But she is 24 now,she missed the best time to get experiences in tourment,we all know she is still not prepared.

I think it would be a good idea to give it to one of the younger Americans who hasn't quite as many WCs each summer. I just don't think Amber will ever make a big impact on tour, but who knows she may surprise me.

Perhaps Rolle, Muhammed or Brengle. As I was looking through the USA's WTA rankings, I was sadly reminded how little seems to be happening for many of those outside of the top 100 or so... Lots of names that we had hopes for that haven't really progressed. What is the latest on Glatch, Albanese, etc. ?

Oudin I think is the best American prospect at the moment. She is one of the best junior players at the moment. No one else in the U.S. is showing any promise.. Vania King, Mashona Washington, Angela Haynes.. none of them have made a breakthrough..

At the moment I think the USTA should pimp the hell out of the WS + Lindsay Davenport;
and do some minor pimping for Oudin and Mattek.

oleada
Jul 13th, 2008, 09:09 PM
Oudin sounds promising on paper, but she hasn't even made it to a Junior GS semi. Brengle hasn't made much of an impact this year either, while good juniors from last year (Cornet, for example) have. :help: A while ago, I remember looking down the rankings at young players in the top 200 and only one (V. King - and she isn't that young or promising) was American. Almost all were European, mostly from Eastern Europe.

US female tennis is going to be dire once the Williams sisters and Davenport retire.

I was looking at oudin's record this year and it's pretty good in juniors. 22-2 win-loss. her only 2 losses were at the French Open and Wimbledon unfortunately. I think that's a pretty good impact. She's ranked 370 something I think on the WTA. How old is she again? 15? 16?

Seyz
Jul 14th, 2008, 09:10 AM
My bad she's actually ranked in the 260s right now win-loss this year is 10-5 for non-juniors.
22-2 in juniors.

Actually this youtube was kind of informative. Turned Pro February of this year. 16 years old. Seems to be pretty determined to get the idea across that her mom is not her coach..lol..

Mashona Washington is 32 years old, and at one point in her career (before her serious injury in 2006) she was a Top 50 player and had a few successful grand slam runs (3R Wimbledon) + a runner-up appearance at a WTA Tour event. She also had a very competitive H2H with Sharapova. She took her (limited) talent as far as it could go.
