Not on the ATP tour, LOL! People have been saying that for 7 years now, and still waiting. First it was oh Gasquet will break through, Berdych will breakthrough, Baghdatis will breakthrough, Monfils will win something, then at some point Dimitrov, Cilic, Gulbis were going to make it big. Nope, nope, nope. It will happen eventually but not anytime soon. The current young players suck, and the juniors dont look promising either. In fact collectively the WTA and ATP have never had a group of more hopeless youngsters than the current one. The current womens and mens generation born 1989-1994 will forever be looked at as the worst in history probably.
When Wilander and McEnroe stopped winning slams at 25 there were actually teen phenoms and great players coming up, not mugs like Raonic, Dmitrov, and Tomic who will never win diddley squat, count on it.
