    she is such a good player that ....would/will become

    Although I had used the modal ‘would’ in the synthesis of the two sentences below, I’m wondering if I could use ‘will’ due to the presence of the verb ‘is’ (Andrea is…..)

    Question: Andrea is a very good tennis player. She will certainly become the champion tennis player of her school.

    - Andrea is such a good tennis player that she would/will certainly become the champion tennis player of her school
    (S&T instruction: use ‘such’ and it’s placed somewhere in the middle)

    Thank you for teaching me

    I would use "will". It is a prediction.

    Re: she is such a good player that ....would/will become

    The answer given (by the assessment book) is 'would'.

    I agree with you, MikeNewYork that 'will' is appropriate.

    Is it grammatically wrong if 'would' is being used: Andrea is such a good tennis player that she would certainly become the champion tennis player of her school.

    Is it possible that 'would' could be an acceptable answer?

    Thank you for teaching me

    No, "would" is definitely wrong.
