1994-1996: Duval, McPhillips, Austin, Abaza, Andrews, Makarova, Townsend

We have a thread for 1993-1995 girls. It only has one 1995 girl, and two 1994 girls, so I thought I'd take it a little bit farther. As new young girls are emerging. We'll need a place to post their results.

1. Krista Hardebeck (1994)- Krista has gone generally under the radar until this month. She burst onto the scene by winning the G1 USTA International Spring Championships and The Easter Bowl. She'll be a top 100 junior with only two tournaments counting toward her ranking!

2. Victoria Duval (1995)- Victoria has been on the map for a while. She has been a longtime rival of Sachia Vickery, often facing her as they were No.1 and No.2 in the U12 rankings. In the last year she has been moving to the ITF Junior Circuit. She reached the QFs of the Easter Bowl this week. She won a G5 title last year and made the semis of the 16s Eddie Herr and QFs of the 16s Orange Bowl. She is now coached by Brian de Villers.

3. Kyle McPhillips (1994)- Kyle had a breakout 2009. She won two G4 ITF Junior titles. She also reached the semis of the 16s Summer National championships. Her best result came at the 10k ITF in Cleveland where she reached the final as a wildcard. Since then Kyle's results have tapered off a bit, but she is still definitely one to watch.

4. Jessica Pegula (1994)- Jessie had a pretty good 2009, winning a G3 ITF Junior title, and reaching the QFs of the Easter Bowl. At the professional level, she got a QWC into the MPS Group Championships. She also played several ITFs, and reached the QFs of a 10k tournament in Hilton Head. She had a real breakthrough result early in the year by reaching the GA final of the Copa Geradu, losing to junior world number 2 Monica Puig in three sets.

5. Brooke Austin (1996)- Brooke has been a top girl in her age group for a long time. This year alone she has an 18-3 record in 16s and 14s play, only just turning 14 two months ago. She reached the final of AEGON Teen Tennis tournament and the QFs of the 16s USTA Spring Championships. She dabbled in ITF Junior Circuit tournaments last year, finding good results in some lower level tournaments.

6. Jan Abaza (1995)- I don't know much about Jan except that she was at the top of tennisrecruiting.net's list of freshmen for a time in late 2009. This year she has only played pro tournaments, gaining entry from winning QWC tournaments (or so I've heard). She beat Sachia Vickery to win a QWC into the MPS Group Championships. She doesn't play too many tournaments outside the south and only played a couple nonpro tournaments last year. I'm intrigued, so I want to add her here so there's a place to talk about her results if she has a breakthrough

7. Hayley Carter (1995)- Hayley played few tournaments in 2009, but out of the six she played, she won three (including a G5 ITF Junior tournament) and reached the final of another. I think if she plays more, she could be a legitimate prospect.

8. Gabrielle Andrews (1996)- Gabbie is barely a 1996 girl (born in late December), but she is definitely to be included in this list. She started out 2010 by winning the prestigious AEGON Teen Tennis tournament. She then reached the QFs of Les Petits As. She debuted on the ITF Junior Circuit by reaching the QFs of a G4 tournament and the Round of 16 at the G1 USTA International Spring Championships. She just won the G14s Easter Bowl.

never heard of Carter

Watch out for Abaza in the future, I think she will go to college but she is a darn good player! Same with Hardebeck!

Kyle just won the 16s Easter Bowl title over Brooke 7-6(4) 6-4. Really Kyle should have played 18s. She wasn't even challenged really in this draw.

USA's future is looking bright. Maybe these girls aren't the ones who bring an influx of American women onto the pro tour, but certainly some of the even younger girls are on the right track. I am hearing some awesome things from older girls who are training at our USTA centers in both Florida and California. There may be a lull in our future, but I am starting to get excited

I'm getting really excited too. Even if only one or two of these girls goes on to have a successful pro career, it's still getting things started. For the first time in a while USA is having groups of talented young girls come through who can really push each other. I think things are finally getting back on track for American tennis!

Thanks for the vids. I had never seen any of this players before. Out of all of them, I like Austin the best - she seemed to have a lot of potential. How tall is she? She seemed a bit short in the video, though she's really young (though she looks older than her age).

I don't know much about technique, but is it just me or are Hardebeck's strokes rather awkward?
