West Australian tennis ace Talia Gibson backed to make WTA top-100 after standout junior year

The man behind Sam Stosur’s US Open triumph says WA teenager Talia Gibson can follow in her footsteps as she prepares for her grand slam debut at the Australian Open.

In more than three decades as a coach, David Taylor has mentored former world No.1s Martina Hingis and Ana Ivanovic, as well as Aussie aces Stosur and Alicia Molik.

Now he’s taken Gibson, 18, under his wing, with the rising star rocketing from a world ranking of 1200 at the start of the year to 341 on the back of three ITF tournament wins.
