Or who will win a slam 1st?
I agree with this sentiment, but being fair, Gauff is about 1 and a half years younger than the other two, which at that age is significant. She's for sure the most precocious of the bunch, since she's been into the scene for a while now, while both Fernandez and Raducanu are breaking through this year.Too early to say, but I think long term Gauff may find it hard to keep up with Fernandez and Raducanu. It looks like too much effort for Gauff to grind out points when I watch her. The other two have easier power and dare I say it look mentally slightly tougher too.
Who knows though; maybe none of them will win a slam in the next 5 years. It's a huge field these days.
Yes there is the age factor, true. Gauff might end up better on clay too (already one q/f in Paris).I agree with this sentiment, but being fair, Gauff is about 1 and a half years younger than the other two, which at that age is significant.

I have been impressed by Fernandez's shot selection and anticipation; sometimes it feels she's seeing the game with the same perspective we get on tv, instead of being on court.
Emma will, then Gauff. I think Fernandez got lucky with Osaka in her emotional freefall and then Kerber is not consistently making major finals anymore. Plus, Angie has a weak serve. Emma and CoCo have true power and killer instinct. Once Fernandez becomes stronger, then I will add her because of her grit and shot making. Fernandez makes me think of CiCi Bellis' one-time run.
IMO ,at least two of these women would not have gone this far IF Serena, a focused Naomi, or healthy Jen Brady were playing.
People say that about Serena all the time, but the point is she's old. These kids are super young. They're not ever going to have to deal with 2002 Serena or anything like it. The Osaka thing makes more sense because at least she's not old enough to be their mother, but even then there's still a big age gap. And even in a world where Osaka was without issues, I don't think she'll ever be the WTA's version of Djokovic, if only because upsets are more likely in BO3.If one of these women were in her draw they'd likely lose. I'm not a Serena fan but odds are she'd win.
So, WTA in a nutshell lol.Coco will probably be the most successful IMO, but she has a long way to go.
Raducanu is no joke though. Speediest of the 3 and honestly faster than 90% of the tour, and she has a mean BHDTL. Power and serve issues put a ceiling on her.
Fernandez is someone who I can see going to a Slam Final or two and even winning one, but not being a consistent top 5 player.
Coco is way overhyped, if you can’t concede that you’re not paying attention.I like how Coco is ranked miles ahead of the other two while being more than a year younger with actual title wins, and TTW can only talk about how overhyped she is. Now suddenly people are saying Raducanu and Fernandez will win a slam first and are more talented.
I didn't say she wasn't overhyped at all, but ok. I'm simply pointing out it's hypocritical to say Coco isn't worth the hype but the others are when she's the only player of the three who's proven herself the most on tour while also being the youngest. tbh I thought Fernandez would keep pace with Coco a year or two ago up the rankings, but she kind of stagnated again until USO this year.Coco is way overhyped, if you can’t concede that you’re not paying attention.
Coco may be ranked “miles” ahead of them now but Raducanu and Fernandez are much more technically sound than Coco.
