    Who of very young new guys -thus, excluding the Berdychs, Djokovics- will really make an impact in the top 10?

    I can think of 2 guys with the potential: Korolev and Juan Martin del Potro.

    Players like Querrey or Cilic I am not so sure they have the potential.
    Any other options?

    Korolev can make it. Berdych can make an impact as can djokovic. Ive been watching korolev rise up the rankings with some nice results.

    Berdych is no young gun anymore he's older than Nadal, 2y older than Djoko and 3 years older than Korolev, Cilic and del Potro!
    I think Korolev and del Potro are quite good and can amke an impact on the pro tour next year.

    I have a feeling Djoko is going to be the Justine Henin-Hardenne of the ATP. (You can decide for yourself if that's a compliment or an insult.)

    I don't think he'll win 5 GS and reach 2 Wimbledon finals. But it's obvious that you don't like either Justine nor Djokovic.

    hmm certainly not any more Brits in the pipeline.

    I would go for Cilic and Korolev at the moment.

    Aha, so you consider Andy Roddick a youg gun? He's 23 you know...imho, everyone who plays on the pro tour 3+ years is no young gun anymore.

    Actually, I like both of their games. But yeah, I really dislike their gamesmanship.

    I was talking about Berdych not Djokovic and Berdych is 2 years older. I like both!
