If it really is nature and not nurture then look out for the American teenager Coco Vandeweghe, who makes her Wimbledon bow today against the Greek Eleni Daniilidou. Sport is in her blood: her grandfather played in the NBA, her great uncle played in the NBA, her uncle played in the NBA and has coached in the NBA, her mother swam in the 1976 Olympics and her brother is an international beach volleyball player. Her grandmother, by the way, was a former Miss America, which may or may not add to the equation. US tennis is in the doldrums and Vandeweghe, who at 19 was briefly inside the top 100 earlier this year, is seen by some as a player who could one day bring the good(ish) times back, although with her family background you have to fear she's got involved with the wrong sort of nets.
