who the ""next"" in line to lead American tennis? Sock,Harrison,or S.Johnson ??

This is more personal but hopefully Rhyne Williams

It looks like a toss up at the moment. They all three have tons of heart and Roddick was praising them for the way they all compete (in his post match interview last night)

Not Harrison thats for sure, you have to look deeper than these guys (at the 16-17 year old players in USA imo)

What happened to Devin Britton? I liked his game. He played good vs Federer i think it was last year in the USO.

Harrison, Sock, and Ihave no idea who Johnson is.

09-03-2011, 08:44 AM
I like Harrison's game, but I watched some of Sock last night, and he could develop well also. Nice touch, and he has a pretty good backhand, but he ran around it wayyyy too much, and got himself in trouble sometimes because of that.

09-03-2011, 03:34 PM
Harrison has way bigger desire to win.

09-03-2011, 04:05 PM
Harrison lacks the weapons and the brain.
Sock looks good to me, but time will tell, didnt see a lot from him so far.
Johnson, nah.

Neither of them is going to become a star.

Why are you ignoring John Isner ?

09-03-2011, 06:52 PM
because isner is already in! ok somdev too needs to be counted

Johnson is old.

09-03-2011, 09:05 PM
Johnson is old.

senior in college is too old? 21-22 ? he's still developing he's physical strength ..,I think he has a bit to go but I like his game better now than the others..

09-03-2011, 09:06 PM
Sock impressed me the most. His potential for being great is there.

09-03-2011, 09:27 PM
Sock is too slow and lumbering.

Cool Story bro.

I liked the way Sock competed. He seems to have a big game, now it's about learning how to compete and structure points at the pro level. He'll have to work on his movement but I disgree with the comment he looks slow.

I was critical of Sock in another thread about playing high school tennis, and after seeing him play I stand by that. There is no way with the game he has he should have been messing around beating kids 0 & 0 in Kansas.

Somdev is indian...

Neither of them..

Bump! Has mental strength, just needs to develop the arsenal a bit more, especially the serve. I can see top 20 by '13. From there, it's all about the "court between your ears", where he is already light-years ahead of Harrison.

09-04-2011, 09:23 AM
I still think it's Harrison. He is a bit overly dramatic at times, though, which he needs to restrain, I think, in order to make his hotblooded competitive personality work for him--there is such a thing as too much or unproductive levels of this behavior, and I think he's dangerously close to that line.

Of the options given, I would say sock.

09-04-2011, 01:37 PM
Jack Sock - Harrison has game but acts like a petulent child.

09-04-2011, 02:49 PM
Sock played well against Roddick, but his game was very similar. Ran around his backhand too much. Big serve, big forehand. I think that if he had played Nadal or Djokovic, it would have been ugly.
