Personally, I think Stephens and Keys will do well on big stages rather than Oudin, Lauren Davis and Grace Min.
I agree. I just think it will be hard for Oudin, Davis, or Min to overcome their size disadvantages, but still it would be nice to see at least one of them breakthrough any way.
In any case, there are so many young Americans with potential. It is kind of exciting to see how things shake out. Where will Townsend fit in this equation? What about Coco Vandeweghe. Coco played so well at Stanford last year. It would be nice to see her live up to her talent.
