Raonic, Tomic, Dolgopolov, Dmitrov. Harrison. Nishikori. A worthless generation.
 
Tomic has no speed. Dmitrov has no power. Dolgopolov has no consistency. Raonic is just a serve and the courts are too slow everywhere for that to be enough. Harrison is fat. Nishikori is short and injury prone.

None of them will make it to top 5 in the rankings, in 5 years time when Djoker/Murray and Nadal start breaking down, that worthless generation won't be ones to take their place and win slams. They will be superseded by a new generation of young players we haven't even heard of yet.

Maybe if Harrison loses weight he could make it, but that's it. He's the only one with a fixable weakness.

I think Tomic and Dimitrov could one day be top 10. I don't think they're the next Nadal/Fed/Djoko however.

True. It seems right now impossible to predict who would win slams after the big four are all done; nobody seems to be a candidate whatsoever. Maybe the best player in 2018 was born in like 1996.

Sounds like a dream team, lol

Harrison is fat :lol:lmao

As much as I despised Tomic for his tank job against Roddick, I got to admit he earned a bit of my respect against Federer. While he lost, he still put up a fight and an overall entertaining match, I hope he keeps that up during the rest of the year. For the rest, Harrison will never break any new ground, he's going to have a Donald Young type of career. Dolgopolov has flashes of brillance but no consistency. Raonic only has a serve and his rather injury prone for such a young man.

Well, it's tough to compare anything to what we are currently seeing in tennis now. I mean you have Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and murray just winning EVERYTHING. Bay far the most dominant era in the history of the game. It will certainly be a while different feeling when these guys are no longer in it as much as they are now, just the fact that the sport will be more open to other players where it has really just been three players winning everything for the last 7 years or so, and will continue to be that way for at least the next three or four.

As far as the next generation, I have to agree there is no real prosperity. Out of all the names you listed, I would say Raonic has a good chance of being top 5 if not better, but the other, highly unlikely. Maybe someone else will come into the picture over the next few years...

What about that tennis prodigy who wears his cap askew ? American chap.

Jerzy Janowicz, Ricardas Berankis anyone?

You mean Donald Young affectionately known on here as The Donald?

The next Fed hasn't born yet. I am sure. It is also unlikely to see the next Rafa or Djoker in the next 3-5 yrs.

Murray might be the next Djokovic. Only four major left and here he is.

There's something I like about Dolgopolov. I think he still might get consistent enough to have a couple of years in the top 10. I know his health is an issue, though.

So if you don't make top 5 you're worthless? I think the word applies to only one thing in this thread..

You are talking about number of slams won? I am talking about playing style and game. It is hard to find another top form 2011 Djoker. The nerve is just unreal.

Yep, and he's still only 25! :wink:

He is injury prone because he's short? Like with Harrison's fatness, Nishikori's shortness isn't a weakness. If you said Nishikori's serve is crap because he's short, or Harrison's movement is crap because he's fat - they would be legitimate weaknesses. But you merely described physical attributes, as if, by being short, even if you serve like Sampras, it doesn't count because you're short, or if you're pudgy, even if you move like Nadal, it doesn't count cuz you're fat.

As it is, Nishikori's serve isn't the worst of the bunch, and Harrison's movement isn't the worst of the bunch.

I guess David Ferrer is not good enough since he is short...oh wait...He is in the damn Top 5 (soon to be Top 4) and he is under 6'0. Your point for Nishikori for being short is invalid.

TT forums are a great study of self entitlement in today's culture
