Young XWTA Players That Remind You Of Top XWTA Players
 
I was just thinking the other day that I have not seen alot of the players ranked outside the XWTA Top 100 play and even some of the players in the Top 100 :tape:

I imagine the same is true for many of us, but we are always looking for young players to adopt as our favorites and potentially eventually replace our current faves :awww:

so I wanted to put together a list of young players on tour whose game reminds you of current XWTA Top Players or even former GOATS ... that way your fellow posters can go to try to watch those players in action and maybe add a young player as a fave :bigwave:

I'll start ...

Sai Sai Zheng - Young Sam Sam Stosur :drool:
Sloane Stephens - Young Serena Williams :hearts:
Mayo Hibi - Young Roberta Vinci :drool:
Garbine Muguruza - Young Na Li :lick:
Ying Ying Duan - Young Lindsay Davenport :worship:
Yulia Putintseva - Young Dominika Cibulkova :hug:
Grace Min - Young Sara Errani :kiss:
Eugenie Bouchard - Young Maria Kirilenko :angel:
Laura Robson - Young Petra Kvitova :shrug:
Monica Puig - Young Sveta Kuznetosva :oh:
Madison Keys - Young Venus Williams :inlove:
Donna Vekic - Caroline Wozniacki :spit:
Kristina Mladenovic - Young Maria Sharapova :oh:

severe topspin on forehand

comfortable at the net, unlike most XWTA players :secret:

as for Sloane and Serena, both have powerful serves, great movement and big forehand :wavey:

hopefully she qualifies for a slam and draws a top player ... maybe Wimbledon :p

Great topic! I was just thinking about that. Some people say that Francoise Abanda plays like young Venus. Her service motion looks similar to Venus.
Still, I find most of the uprising players to be just ballbashers. I wish someone played like Hingis, Henin, Mauresmo. One-handed backhand is DEAD (well, except for Gasparyan). I like that some young players play at the net quite often, like Stephens (great net game btw), Townsend (never seen her, but heard that she even serves and volleys :eek:).
By the way, don't you think that Watson's and Stephens' playing styles are similar? I don't know who from the older players has the same style.

Stefanie Voegele - Martina Hingis, the way they both tie up their ponytail =)

Bouchard and Vekic have very similar styles. Only dif is that Donna doesn't have a suspect serve.

Keys is more like Davenport than Venus, especially on the movement.

Aliaksandra Sasnovich: New Azarenka :)
Anett Kontaveit: Old Azarenka :D

As for Putintseva=Cibulkova, when Putintseva was playing as a 14 year old at Les Petits As, she had the same serve and grunt as Cibulkova does now + Forehand and Movement even Backhand at times :D They even look similar :haha: And the attitude :oh:
