Caroline Wozniacki, Sloane Stephens and Coco Vandeweghe Among Stars At 2015 ASB Classic Players Party

With the 2015 WTA season underway, let the parties begin! In Auckland, the players came out to shine at the 2015 ASB Classic Players Party. Headlined by Caroline Wozniacki, I’m also interested in seeing my fellow Americans get their season started, particularly Sloane Stephens and Coco Vandeweghe. Who is going to be the next American to step up and become a long-term fixture in the top 10? Will it be Sloane or Coco? Maybe the future is Madison Keys. She is the only non-Williams sister in the top 30 representing the United States going into 2015. I am a big Keys fan, but I want to see a lot more Americans fighting for trophies and rankings points. Sloane showed a lot of promise a few years ago, so hopefully she will get things back on track this year. Coco has a lot of natural power and talent. But the top of the women’s game is so deep now. Great is not good enough. You have to be special. But those things can be hashed and rehashed as the season develops. For now, let’s party!
