Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

In the post-match interview Serena mentioned how she believed Sloane can be the best in the world one day. Do you agree?

I do, because Sloane's forehand

If she maintains her focus, will she achieve Serena's prediction?

I don't know if Serena believes everything she says.

Re: Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

I never like to hype players that much, but I think Sloane can be a solid top 20 player for sure. How high she gets in the top 20 remains to be seen.

Re: Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

Serena also called Azarenka the world's best player in that same interview.

So maybe Serena means Sloane will be Number 1 but still the absolute pigeon of the world Number 3?

She's definitely a future top 10 player that's for sure. Miles and miles of talent in that girl.

Re: Serena:"She can eventually be the best in the world one day"

I voted yes, but really it's still up in the air. However, to be near the top 20 at 19 years old, the hype is not entirely unjustified. There have been top ten players made of much less than Sloane's forehand, so I believe she could be top 5. The questions remain will her backhand and second serve improve? I don't know, but she does have a weapon, and that is something you can't teach or earn.

coming from ''i have nothing to lose'' serena

don't get me wrong, she's my favourite player on the WTA, but you have to take what she says with a pinch of salt
