    nope. After federer, that's nadal who'll take the role.
    Gasquet and murray have bigger chances than monfils.

    Nope

    Don't think monfils will be number one but a good bet for top 20, maybe top ten.... As for nadal i don't think he'll take number 1....

    i hv a big feeling that someday nadal will take no.1. No matter for how long but surely on the top. It can be happen either that during Fed's existence or not except he is overburdened with injury.

    I seriously feel Monfils is one insanely overrated player.

    He aint THAT good.

    Gasquet is far more talented in just about every respect when he is working in between the ears.

    I think he is the superior french of the 2.

    My 2 cents.

    i dont think he'll be a top player, he'll hang in the top 100. but i think he'll just be a jobber

    i wouldn't say so... none of them have really showed a lot yet.. and still they're telling the world: We're comming! but gasquet and murray haven't done more than monfils.. beside.. isn't monfils a little younger?

    Murray is the youngest of the three, Gasquet the oldest, but all three are separated in age by less than a year.

    If Monfils can change his mentality/style to be a little more aggressive, top 10 seems possible. If he sticks to grinder mentality, a solid top 20.

    18yrs old gasquet beat Federer in monte carlo'05. Just him and others 3 persons. Said that federer wasn't at the best in that match but what it took 18yrs kid to beat no.1... there must be something special from Gasquet. That monfils haven't done until now.

    none of them have really showed a lot yet??
    Well, Nadal have shown whatever he can do back to 2005 season (11 titles include RG...WOW). He brought in the anxious even to a man like Roger. i don't want to speculate that is ever Nadal can beat roger again, but i believe there's a chance to him to be on the top.

    NO! But he will have a better career than Scoville Jenkins. Of the young guns better than Jenkins and Murray. he and Gasquet are close but I give the nod to Gasquet (certainly based on results so far).
