Re: Your Top 5 Youngsters to Watch in 2013

And to add Irnia has beaten Bouchard the last 5 times they played both pros and juniors. and their pro match at Burnie Khromacheva was really whipping Bouchard around the court from what I saw in the stream. 6-1 6-3 Irnia. I feel Khromacheva and Putintseva will be good IMO it is just taking them longer.

I hope Gabby Andrews plays some more itf's next year and I feel like it wont be long until Abanda gets the #1 junior spot

A year ago I'd have placed Gabby Andrews on the list of honorable mentions, but this year she is not even close. She's had a reaaaally poor season this year compared to last year, in my opinion. Her only positive results came in doubles. Singles was really lackluster. She's only 15 (will be 16 in December) so there's lots of time to get back on track, but only time will tell.

I also agree that Abanda is just going to explode on the junior circuit this year.

Re: Your Top 5 Youngsters to Watch in 2013

You are right. I feel like she should have done better and her doubles results could be do to the sole fact of how incredible a doubles player Townsend is. Hope Gabby can do well at Eddie Herr and the Orange Bowl to get her confidence back because I think she is very talented. She might go to college and be a very good prospect if she does.

Re: Your Top 5 Youngsters to Watch in 2013

I think Margarita Gasparyan, Daria Gavrilova & Irina Khromacheva are going be real big in the future, I also agree with simonsaystennis Gabby Andrews result haven't been so good this year, hopefully next year she can do better.

One of the reasons I started this thread was to alert myself to any names that I may not be familiar with. I don't think I've ever heard of Gasparyan, but you're the second or third person to mention her. Care to give some details about her game/career thus far??

ATM she rank 234, She won a couple ITF Events, If I right she is 18yr old & she has a Big Serve from what I saw in Moscow, she plays with an One-handed backhands and is currently being coach by Vera old coach Sergei Demekhine

She rose from #648 to #231 this year, won four $25Ks...she plays with a single handed backhand which is very unusual for a girl so young.

You can see her match in Moscow against Safarova here (she won a set): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaQixv5TFgA

Re: Your Top 5 Youngsters to Watch in 2013

I think that all of the Junior Grand Slams winners/runner ups will be good.
I mean Townsend, Putintseva, Beck, Scmiedlova Bouchard, Svitolina, Crawford and Kontaveit would have to be a lot of people' best bets. Except for Vekic, Barty and Khromacheva I don't think there are any stars powering through except them. As for Sharipova, she has good game, but she has weak points, no head and bad movement I still like her though

As for the Bouchard vs Svitolina thing, I think that Eugenie has more game but I think Elina will achieve more as she can play on all surfaces well as shown this year, whereas Bouchard is strictly Grass and Hard, not recording any amazing clay results
