List Your Top 5 Prospects for the Future

List 5 players who you think will make a splash on the WTA Tour soon.

Requirements: they must never have played a WTA main draw match.

(Players now in Top 100 who had not played at Main Draw match before 2006: Poutchkova, Radwanska, Bardina )

Can you take that up to 150?

I think Vasilisa Bardina will do well next year.

Re: List Your Top 5 Prospects for the Future

That's pretty tough because most of the big prospects i.e. Wozniacki, Pavlyuchenkova, U. Radwanska, Paszek, etc. have already played a WTA main draw match.

Well, we can limit it to "very few", like U. Radwanska has only played 1 right? But it is also intended to bring up some of the prospects who are farther away and maybe fewer people know about.

Re: List Your Top 5 Prospects for the Future

Shuai Zhang has played at WTA level before, but very rarely.

Another young Chinese player to watch for is 16 y.o . Xin-Yun Han.

Sorana-Mihaela Cirstea, Sharon Fichman, Olga Govortsova, Raluca Ioana Olaru, and Kristina Antoniychuk are also good prospects.

Those are the top ones though.

There aren't really any others I can think of that have that kind of potential besides Michelle Larcher de Brito, but she's still quite young.

The players I listed are 15-16 years old.

You can't really go much younger than that.

Re: List Your Top 5 Prospects for the Future

no really - the russians are always going to be there - i've seen natalia orlova and was impressed, polotroskaya also played here and seemed to be a player who's going to be hot on the lower clay tournies, regina kulikova is awesome,
she won't be a star - but she's another promising italian- Gabba, anna remondina should be very good within a few years and she's from the 1989 crop.
melanie klaffner from austria seems like a player to watch from the 90s girls, i remember her troubling sugiyama at fed play.
here in israel we mostly have glushko and shlomo - both ptentially top100 with some hard work, though shlomo might need much more years to develope as a player - she has something more promising in her IMO.

Re: List Your Top 5 Prospects for the Future

the only two I know of who'd satisfy all the criteria in the first post are Michelle Brito and Ksenia Milevskaya.
