Re: which young player is most dangerous to top players?

Why is Stephens on the list but not Mladenovic?

Re: which young player is most dangerous to top players?

people voting for sloane?

she has like one top ten win in her entire career, and that was obviously over an injured terrible serena. she only has 3 wins over top 20 players in her entire career (including that win over serena). so shes like 3-18 against top 20 players or something. she is a walking bye for any top player reallt.

Re: which young player is most dangerous to top players?

Well for now I'd say Laura, just because she's beaten the most big players, but longterm I think Donna could be the one.

Re: which young player is most dangerous to top players?

It depends, as a fully developed youngster I'd have to go with Puig/Vekic. As the up & coming still figuring things out type of players, Robson is the clear choice.

Vekic on grass, Keys at her peak, Robson with serve and tolerable movement.

In the future probably Sloane, Donna and Robson/Keys too.

Re: which young player is most dangerous to top players?

In the nearest future it will be Konjuh.
From this list I think Muguruza has the game to trouble top players more frequently than other youngsters.

Re: which young player is most dangerous to top players?

It has to be Laura Robson right now.
She's the only one with multiple big wins in Grand Slams.

Vekic may breakthrough in London but she's a little bit overhyped so far.
