Americans to Watch: The Next Generation

So, I had that other thread "Americans to Watch" that tracked the results of the top Americans. That really wasn't the main goal that I wanted the thread to take on. Everyone knows the results of Venus and Serena. They're established. I decided that I wanted to create a new thread that focused on up and coming girls who are either still playing juniors, transitioning to pros, or playing college and some pro tournaments. Girls who are under 18 and have not committed to a college or turned pro will have their junior ranking and pro ranking show up. Players that are 15 and under will have all of their top junior results shown. Players that are 16 will have their top 5 junior results shown. Players that are 17 will have their top 3 junior results shown. Players that are 18 will have their top junior result shown, if they are still dabbling in juniors. All Americans that are on this list are 21 and under. Criteria for remaining on the list will be included later.

Neither have I I think this year will be a breakthrough for her though. I think both Ester and Sloane will be playing a lot of ITFs this year an hopefully a couple of qualifying for pro tournaments.

(Q)Ester Goldfeld def. (Q)Brittany Augustine 5-7 6-3 6-1

Ester's best ITF result so far. Tough round against Ajla tomorrow!
This was MAdison's third pro tournament, so she should get a ranking for the end of the year!
