Re: Probably unpopular opinion: Cara Black is greater than Jelena Ostapenko
I mean, an irrelevant comparison, which is the point I suppose, but I'll bite.
Ostapenko obviously is superior in singles, and while Black is currently leagues ahead in doubles she could never succeed in singles the way Aljona has, while Aljona has proven in her short career that she actually has great doubles potential. I mean she will never get close to having Cara's touch and volleying skill which was practically unparalleled, but she has shown great ability to hold her own against both the girls and guys on a doubles court, her serve is more reliable and her strokes are ridiculously powerful as ever. She's looking good to potentially win the mixed at Wimbledon too.
So I'd say sooner rather than later she'll have a clear margin over Cara, though a singles grand slam arguably already gives her this depending on how much you value doubles.
