Your Call: Are We Approaching a Tennis Changing of the Guard?

Updated: June 29, 2010

The French Open proved to be unpredictable, and Wimbledon is headed in that direction.

On Thursday, Serena Williams, Vera Zvonareva, Petra Kvitova and Tsvetana Pironkova will do battle for two spots in Saturday’s Championship match at Wimbledon. Two relatively unknown players are into the semis, with three potential first-time GS winners. Is this signaling a change in the status quo on the WTA Tour?

    Serena still going strong but the players just below seem to be having a good hard fought tussle.

    I don’t feel like we’ve seen the future of women’s tennis yet. Somewhere there is a 12-year-old practicing her serve that is going to knock our socks off, but at the moment I don’t see the next Martina or Steffi Graff emerging. But it all could change quickly, as that is the nature of the beast.
