By younger players I am considering 23 years old and less, so that cancels 24 year olds Medvedev, Berrettini, Khachanov, Garin...

I forgot about Sinner because I was going down the list of ATP rankings and I had to stop. I should have put him instead of Other. :confused:

I don't like any of them should be an option.
These tennis factories are producing very boring players with very little individuality, flair and worst of all, passion for the game. Some have a passion for winning but I am not seeing a passion for tennis. The best players of the last 20 years Federer, Djokovic, Nadal, Williams sisters developed their individuality and game outside of the hothouse and brought something different that their tour opponents had never seen before. How do you even find anyone to practice with who plays like Nadal?
Who in this poll brings something that you have never seen before?
So my answer is none of them.

Considering the career inflation era (which will extend to next generations too), you could easily have made 24 or 25 the limit.

That’s what I started with 24 but the Poll gave me a maximum of 10 options so I had to draw the line somewhere...

I’m the only one who voted for FAA and Coric so far. :unsure:

Everyone commenting about Sinner, talk about hyping up someone and putting so much pressure on him. 15-16 slams. :-D

I must bump up this thread and your comment in 7-8 years...

I am sure many laughed at Djokovic after he lost 1st R at AO to Safin in 2005...

Then he won it 8 times.

Under 24, it's Sinner and Shapo for me. Not many I dislike. Just Tsitsipas, really. So I'll usually root for just about any of these guys taking out the old farts lingering around (including Lost Gen).

I like Musetti and Ruusuvuori.

Out of the listed ones I sort of like Tsitsipas.

Weirdly I don't expect anything from any of them! But I guess someone will have to win the titles when there are no greats left.

Still don't feel attached to any of them.

I only recently (2019) started to appreciate Timmy. So it might be a while before any of the NextGenners win me over.
