Re: The Future of American Tennis

Brengle reminds me a little of Harkleroad, but not as hard-working -- maybe top 50 for her.

Oudin, top 25-40. She hasn't got the size, unfortunately.

Coco, maybe top 10, but thanks to her late start and an all-court game which takes longer to develop, don't expect anything huge in the next couple of years. She'll be a late-bloomer.

Asia is the biggest wild card of the group. I think should enter a university and play at NCAA level for a while, and only then if she keeps improving, try the life of a pro. She could end up doing as well as the others but I don't think she should turn pro now, the way Oudin did. A program like Stanford would be great for her.
