Stebe,Tomic,Dimitrov,Raonic,Harrison,Nishikori
 
Who is gonna be the best.....I see Stebe as a serious threat. He has a solid forehand,serve and can volley....very good backhand. Solid movement. Im really disappointed with Dimitrov. He seems to lack the passion to grind out victories in tournies like Bucharest this week.What are your opinions on these guys and who do you think has the most potential to improve????

Nishikori and Harrison

dantheman 04-24-2012 02:35 PM

Nishikori in terms of career wise so far and he has much more potential of winning one of the bigger titles such as a masters.

grigor dimitrov and ryan harrison will most likely win a title on grass or hard court sometime within the remainder of this year.

raonic is just cruising at the moment and is just trying to get up to the next level of top 20

But, Raonic is maxing out his serve now and forehand is impoving, backhand will get better but don't you think the game has now leaned towards players with great movement and a solid all around game. i.e Murray, Djokovic, Nadal, Federer...

is the question who's gonna be the best? Or who has the most chance to improve?

Best:
Raonic

followed by:
Tomic
Harrison
Nishikori
Dimitrov
Stebe
in that order

Best Chance to improve:
Harrison

The ATP wants Raonic to succeed.Every time he wins a match he gets on the home page of the ATP site. They see him as the player they would like to succeed..gives great interviews, has great court demeanor and a huge game...and he admits he is learning something with every match..and he has 3 titles under his belt at age 21. And Nadal has touted him as a top 10 player and no one is anxious to play him because of his big, accurate, serve.

He is the one to watch...and he's currently #25...

Not an American:

I think Harrison is by far the most talented of these guys. He reminds me of Federer (with a two hander) far more than Dmitrov does. He needs to lose weight though.

Tomic is slow and has a bad serve, he'll top out at 15 in the world, Raonic will be top 10, but surfaces are just too slow for a guy whose game depends on aces to win a slam.

blackfrido 04-24-2012 04:31 PM

Dimitrov, any doubts?

pound cat 04-24-2012 04:36 PM

Deuce Australia seems to think that Raonic is the one...

Nishikori's going to win a slam between now and 3 years

Nishikori and Harrison are too short in a game that moves in the direction of huge servers. Top players are getting taller.

Raonic has the best prospects followed by Tomic.

Dimtrov keeps disappointing a bit. He has smooth strokes but doesn't have Federer's agility and power, particularly on the serve. Still, unless something goes terribly wrong he should be a top ten player but not a super star.

Raonic supersonic will win Wimby next besides the top five. Hey, Raon, let me string for you and you will win it. I'd bump you up to where you still have all that power, yet, control increases.

Milosh, if he can avoid further injuries. USO'13-'14 or so?

joechiang 04-25-2012 02:08 AM

Nishikori is just another Ferrer with same body condition.Tomic may have a chance at Wimby.Harry should improve his ground strokes.

henryshli 04-25-2012 03:44 AM

I can't see any one being included in the GOAT discussion from that group. I guess it's right that we shouldn't get a GOAT contender in every generation which seems to be the case so far.

I agree with this list almost 100%. However, I'd put Harrison and Nishikori above Tomic. I think Tomic is a top 20 player at best - I see Harrison and Nishikori as Top 10 players. I see Raonic with the ability to be a Top 5 player...if not #1 someday.

Evan77 04-25-2012 09:57 AM

Raonic for me... but still these youngsters a million years behind top guys ...

Yeah good point....Djokovic and Murray and Nadal and Federer all had solid games at that stage....Forehand,backhand,movement.....I feel its not who is the best now but who has the most room to improve that will be the best. Look at djokovic....all around solid game when he was 20. Then increased everything by 5% and became superhuman. Raonic has backhand/movement problems. Harrison has backhand problems. I say this guy Stebe can go far. He has a lot of talents and never really focused on tennis early in his life. He has a down to earth attitude and has all the shots but he can still improve them all by 5-10%.....Have you seen much of him yet?
