Is is possible Mike Tyson's daughter could make it to the top 100 one day?

Why not?

Tennis is an elitist sport, whoever has the money and connections is in a huge advantage over others to get their kid into the pros.

More kids of ATP pros than ever before, and more millionaire kids than ever before.

Tyson may have gone bankrupt but he still has the contacts, sponsors might be interested in helping out Tyson's kid, it might be headline news even if she wins a tiny junior event...

Serena, the great role model... Imagine a whole generation of young girls being influenced by that bully... Almost as bad as that whole "Madonna generation" that grew up with the atonal midget witch as their idol...
Hate to break it to you, but the generation that Serena inspired is already here - Osaka, Keyes, Sloane, Gauff, Townsend, etc. and they're all perfectly fine.

And actually Kenin also stated that she looked up to Serena, so add her to the list.

Let's do the TTW math:

80% of TTW think they can beat a WTA player
1% of TTW can actually beat a WTA player
Milan Tyson can beat 83% of TTW
Mike Tyson can beat the sh*t out of 100% of TTW

So....no.

Can't argue that math.

I would have to say though that any adult male poster on this forum would win easily against Milan Tyson. They would lose to Serena, but only in 3 sets.

1. Are they fine? We don't know that yet.
2. How inspired were they really? Perhaps some of them hate her guts but keep quiet coz the pro-Serena media avalanche could crush them in a second.
3. Don't hate, whether breaking or not.

Besides, where is the evidence they were influenced by Serena? They are all fairly well-adjusted - hence NOT influenced.

Her influence is limited to FHs and BHs...

Um...Stephens has been on tour since 2007 and Keys since 2009 ? You "don't know yet" whether they are going to be fine ? How much time do you need ?

She's a celebrity wanna-be.

If you pay attention to the clip, you won't see any BH from her, except one at the very end, which looks totally hopeless.

Iron Mike's daughter will turn 13 in February. Look at how much better Rafa and Gasquet were at a comparable age-- about 10,000 times better:

seems pretty serious, as the daughter of a former boxing champion, she got to practice with some of the best coaches/players
based on the videos below, do you think she could make it to the top 100? Or better?
I have seen her play her in AZ a few times now and she is college material, but I don't think she has the chops to be pro. I should say, she could play ITF tourneys but is not WTA tour level abilities. She still has a few years of development, but I just didin't see the "it" factor.
