View Full Version : Rate the younger players by 'establishing themselves this year'

Obviously that's a loose standard. But when veterans win all the slams, you can rate a newbie on that.

Caroline Wozniacki proved that last year was no fluke. A year from her first slams final, she's still Top Five, with a slam semi. Score A++ for proving you're not a total one-off. Next up for her. Prove you aren't a Safina/Ivanovic 'good-for-a-year-and-a-half-and-done'.

Let's not take JJ, Zvon and Sam Stosur as 'younger players'. Even these days, 25+ isn't 'younger', it's just 'not old'.

Who else among the younger players, and in what order, really put some glitter on their resume thisyear?

Was there really anyone else? Only Caro, when she captured that #1 ranking after Beijing.

The likes of Vika, Aga, Domi, Agnes, Alize, Sorana, Melanie, and Sabine (due to injury) didn't improve or hurt their reputations in the tennis community.
