Out of these guys, who do you think will have a huge success?
None. As history has shown us, the best young talent does one of two things: comes out of obscurity with no fuss and simply results (Nadal) OR is consistently great until they break through (Federer, Djokovic) OR is a mix of both (Sampras). All of these guys like the spotlight too much and will always be at best dark horses.
THE DON WILL WIN CYGS. NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE DON!!!
But seriously, Tomic seems to be on the rise and currently is probably the best of the lot in terms of outlook. But pvaudio is right in that they'll never be a Roger or Rafa
No mention of Janowicz? Of all of those mentioned so far I would have to give it to Milos, who has had the most success so far.
Young is on that list.. lol
and not Jerzy?
Obligatory Grigor Dimitrov vote from me
I truly think we're in for a generation of stinkers. I think Milos will probably be in for the most success in the future out of the bunch, but at the moment its just about picking the best from a group of turds
Is this a serious list add Ricardis Berankis to the list and get rid of Donald Young!
Soon you might add Stefan KOZLOV age 14 USA playing and winning at age 14 in Futures events.
According to these boards, Dolgopolov is still an up-and-coming youngster, so this thread is a fail I'm afraid.
Someone has to rise up. I'm not liking Harrison's chances. He tries to play the loopy defensive Roddick tennis which will get him nowhere. Roddick must be teaching him that the way to win matches is to stand 10 feet behind the baseline. I think Grigor is going to be pretty good. He has all the shots and some real weapons. He will be in good shape if he keeps improving.
Donald Young is the same age as Del Potro, so unless you want to put him here too I think Young shouldn't be included. Not that he even has a chance to be successful anyway.
The up and coming batch on the ATP is just sad. Only 5 guys have won majors since FO 2005 (Nadal, Federer, Djokovic, Del Potro, Murray). These young guns listed give me little reason to suggest that will change over the next few years.
dimitrov will be the best of the bunch.
he is the only one with the answer against rafa, which is the only measurement of greatness they need to worry about, especially considering nads will be FIGHTING for his ranking of around 8 or 9, similar with these guys.
Tomic. Raonic and Young are not that young anymore.
Janowicz will have a better career than all these mugs. I think he will surprise people and win a slam or two. Raonic and Tomic will never win a slam other than mixed doubles.
that will definitely be a surprise, to say the least.
He's only a year younger than Djokovic, and is same age as Delpo and Cilic.
I voted for Bernie. But I keep getting the feeling that someone under the radar will rise and put all the pretenders to shame.
I wasn't being serious. Fact is many on here still think Dolgo is one of them young guns.
Who the hell voted for Donald Young?!
wheres Mr. Sock?
If you're going to throw 23yo's in there might as well list Kei as well.
Bernard Tomic improved a lot
donald young ??...bright future ??
Bwahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaa thats amusing.
I really hope he emerges as a gs threat in the future.. I like jack a lot
Tomic is 20. I would consider that a "youngster". there is no official definition of youngster but what do you consider it.. in the teens?
Tomic was my choice. He qualifies perfectly. I just added that Raonic and Young were not that young anymore (unlike Tomic). It was a period after Raonic, not a coma.
Oh ok yea that makes sense. I picked tomic too
Glad we agree!
Include Jack Sock and he gets my vote.
Where's Sloane Stephens?
Yeah! Jack Sock is already a slam champion (USO 2011).
Yeah, these guys are way too hollywood to make it as top tennis players. They want to be big sparkly stars without paying their dues on tour.
Interestingly Raonic isn't clamoring for the limelight like the others, but he already has achieved a lot of success in terms of rankings, but hasn't shown a great ability to develop his game enough to break into the top 10.
Tomic has the advantage of being so very young though.
watch out, the Greeks are coming!
(cos no ethnic Greeks have evern been any good..oh, wait..)
This is hilarious. You included the prejourneymen Harrison/Raonic/Tomic and excluded the future multislam winning Berankis/Donskoy/Nishikori?:lol: You need a new thread.
Separate names with a comma.
