Who are some up and coming tennis players that could make a big impact potentially next season and start to make a name for themselves? I have heard that Gregor Dmitrov may be one (I think I got the name right). Who else?

The Latvian Legend: Ernests Gulbis.

Dimitrov is still a season or two away from making a huge impact in big events...

Cilic was a guy who I foresaw making the breakthrough this summer, glad that he did w/ big wins over Murray and Nadal. He's a guy that could potentially be a thread on all surfaces, be surprised if he doesn't make more slam QF or SF next year.

Querrey if he can recover from the injury and build on what he did well during the summer could make it to the top 10 next year.

I don't think Querrey has the determination and hunger to get to the very highest level. He's got game, not doubt, but he doesn't seem as focused as top 10 players..

Could easily say the same for Gulbis...I'm just saying...

Ill check out Gulbis, i think Querrey could tho i hope his injury doesnt set him back and Isner should do some damage. Thats prolly it on the American front sadly...

Gulbis' talent level is overrated by sky rocketing levels. He takes a set off Nadal over 2 matches and all of a sudden he's the next slam champion. He'll be lucky to crack the top 20.

If you are talking 3-4 years down the road, just pick the top ranked juniors in the world. you cannot go too wrong with that..
Gregor, Tomic, Bhambri etc..
