We know Taylor Dent and Allison Bradshaw (what happened to her by the way) were both products of former tennis player but I was wondering if there were any others who we may see make a name for themselves in the next few years?

Regrettably, one who won't (officially retired) :sad: is Brie Rippner, whose father Rob was the Stanford mens captain in 1970. Rob Rippner, now a radiologist, went on to play pro doubles with Roscoe Tanner (who was nabbed in GER several weeks ago and returned here to face fraud charges in both Florida and Nooo Joisy, BTW). Brie really tore up her ankle in Oz '01 and her 2 comeback attempts both failed. Perhaps her main place in WTA lore (largely due to this injury) may be as the answer to a trivia question: who was the first player to lose a WTA match to Sharky? (IW '02).

Chris Evert has boys that are getting to be close to playing age, but she said some years ago that they didn't like tennis.

Interestingly, Pancho Gonzales has a son. His mother is Andre Agassi's sister. So, some heavy tennis genes there. He's about 15 or 16, so I'm doubting that he is playing tennis on the junior circuit or we would have heard of him.

I could see how it could be that way. There are two Katerina Bohmova's that compete on the challenger circuit but I understand the elder of the two is a former WTA player who was known as Katerina Skronska when she played competively in the 80s.

Not sure if they are related though does anyone know?

Evonne Cawley's kids are Kelly and Morgan. Kelly is an up-and-coming actress (as up-and-coming as the other 90% who were previously in the 10%). Morgan is a national league soccer player. Both are "on the rise", but I suppose the thread means on the rise in tennis. ;)
