You wanna find the next (maybe) great female American player, you've got a long wait: (14 y.o. I think) Andrea Remynse. The others get a lot of mention on this board, ala Tatiana (FRA), Timea (SUI), Michaella (NED), etc.

AUSTRIA-Dani Kix. She hasnt done nothing yet but winning some 10 000 Challengers. Bettina Pirker seems very promising to me (19). For the younger girls I would chose 14 year old Steffi Rath and 12 year old Tamira Paszek who is beating everybody U12 and nearly all U14 players

ALGERIA: Mabye Samia Medjahdi has top 200 potential
BRAZIL: Jenifer Widjaja and Fernanda Hermengildo
GREECE: Nikol Kipritidou
LATVIA: Agnese Liepina in some years, btw where are the Bandere sis?
PORTUGAL: yes Magali de Lattre can make the top 200

I agree about Sharon. If she continues the way she's headed she looks to be our future.

At this point I think Tennis Canada is just about ready to start offering sacrifices :p Run little Canadian juniors! :p

:wavey: As quoted for Australia Casey Dellaqua...but also another notable player...Gavin Hopper's Daughter (Coetzer, Cash). I forget her name (sorry all) but a report on her won either an AFI or Logie. I only saw the end of the interview...but Gavin is working her hard and even at her tender age...10-12 I believe...has undergone media training etc and already speaks like someone 10 years her senior. It looked like she hit a pretty mean ball as well...hope someone can give her first name.

I think Stosur still has a massive future..as Australian Women seem to mature alot later than other countries. :wavey:

Steph is kind of a tricky case because she's not really done a ton in juniors so far, but she seems to really be working hard and improving quickly. She got a big win over Kateryna Bondarenko and also lost 3 setters to Kutuzova and Kleibanova in junior competition, plus she beat Dominikovic in Toronto qualies (yes she is slumping but still a strong effort), and lost very close 3 set matches to Randriantefy and Arvidsson too. She's a real fiesty competitor :) (BTW, I don't know how on earth she could lose to Dancevic :p)

Jade Hopper ;)

Time will tell with her. Wanting it badly is a good start. Her attitude is where it should be for a budding champ. Her tournament results indicate she's not the best player in her age group, but I don't think success as a junior necessarily indicates success as a senior. She's still learning the game so only time will tell. She's still very young and very small. Good management will play a part. Good luck to her - no pressure.

What about Olivia?

Experimentee
Nov 5th, 2003, 12:32 PM
I think for Australia its still Stosur, shes done much more than Dellaquas ever done, but shes just not in good form right now. Casey only won one $25K this week which is why people are declaring her the future of Aus tennis, but that tournament was pretty weak and she hasnt shown anything else to suggest she'll be better than Stosur.

Zheng is already in the top 100, so for China I think its Zi Yan. A few people have already said they think Yan is the best of the current young Chinese.

I think for Spain Adriana will be better than Fraga, her results seem better and shes beaten Fraga a few times when they've met. And shes younger too.

Nov 5th, 2003, 02:10 PM
Having seen Sam Stosur play, I don't Australia should be resting its hopes on her. I thought her to be very mediocre. She had a good serve, but didn't back it up all that well, and I questioned her competitive will. But hey, I only saw her play once or twice, so maybe I'm being harsh.

What about Delia Seseciorneau (spelled wrong, I'm sure -- too lazy to look it up) from Romania?

Don't get me started on Jade . . . I really pity the poor girl. Good luck to her . . . but she's under way too much pressure for someone at her age. I see her as some kind of experiment in human science which will most probably lead to a burnout before she's old enough or big enough to compete in the WTA. I really hope I'm wrong . . .

For Australia: Stosur or Casey.

I am a bit bias there (I'm from WA to), but I believe that she has what it takes to get there.

Nov 21st, 2003, 01:57 PM
Stosur has more experience than Dellacqua, and hardly anything separates them, talent-wise, but Dellacqua seems hungrier for success than Stosur. That was why I chose Dellacqua initially.
