I don't know or care who will win more slams.

Carlos is an outstanding young player and has already delivered more than could reasonably be expected of him at his age. He is rightly considered a phenomenal talent of our sport. There is every reason to suppose that he will continue to excel in his career, all else being equal. He seems a sweet guy, and is liked by his peers on the tour. He has a good team and continues to evolve his game, having established success on all surfaces.

Jannik is a superb talent, who is realising his potential and will most likely also achieve great things in his career, all else being equal. He seems like a pleasant chap who impresses me with his calm demeanour and increasing serenity on court when he plays, which I believe enhances his ability to deploy a strategic / incisive game. He has a really good team - I like seeing Cahill out scouting his opponent's matches.

What a prospect for the future of the sport these players are. Given their young ages, we tennis fans stand to be the beneficiaries of their respective talents for some time to come. I anticipate that they will share the spoils on tour not just between them, but also with others that are also coming up/will come up. That bodes well for the sport.

If mentioning Carlos / Jannik and slams, the former has 2 slams already and the latter none. The Wimbledon win by Carlos has been acknowledged by many pundits as one of the best Wimbledon finals ever. He played an in-form Novak who was generally unbeatable in much of 2023. The calibre of success already enjoyed by Carlos is top tier, and Jannik has yet to match it. That is simply a fact. Can Jannik match it? Given his considerable skills, yes. Will he do so-who knows? Nor is it possible to know what else Carlos will achieve.

However, I have no problem though in hazarding a guess and say that Carlos is likely to achieve greater success in GS title wins. I base this guess on an extremely scientific premise - my soft spot for the boy. :)
You wouldn't be a friendly, older English chorister, would you?

I said Sinner before then Carlos won 2 and Sinner was struggling with injuries. I think Sinner has matchup advantage but feel Carlos still will pick up more due to sinner being more unfit or random loss

It's rarely stupid to think this.


You are trying to argue that height makes zero difference.

The real next gen was Medvedev Tsitsipas Zverev and Thiem. Outside of Thiem, every single one was 6'5" or taller. I think Tsitsipas is 6'5".
Alcaraz has more slams already than everyone you just listed and he's shorter and younger. What's your point about height again? :-D

Also, after reading all these posts about height being proportional to greatness I'm starting to think that Reilly Opelka is now the GOAT...

He was obviously towering over Jim Courier after the match. 2-3” taller
Courier was listed as 6'1 in his playing days, he was closer to 5'11-6'0. He's also 54 years old now and probably half inch shorter than when he was younger.

I feel Sinner will be unstoppable in his prime. With his improved movement and hopefully improved serve he's set to dominate. Carlos needs to come up with something new to challenge him @dking68 son

Carlos can’t really improve much from his current level

He’s pretty much maxed out his serve with that height. The only thing he can work on is the placement

His backhand is horrible. Sinner, Medvedev, Zverev, Rune and Djokovic have better backhands

His mentality is unelite. He couldn’t handle the pressure Big Z was giving him in the QF and he didn’t have Coach Ferrero to help him

His game style is very injury prone. I don’t know if he’ll be playing tennis at age 30.

I hope Sinner breaks every record in tennis.

Carlos will win more if he makes a radical change in his team getting rid of JCF
Sinner If Carlos doesn't get rid of JFC.

Sinner's great decision to move on from Piatti to Cahill was made at the right time. Piatti was excelent to create Sinner. But it's Darren who is making him go to the next stage.

JFC did his job to discover Carlitos. Now he needs a coach that kicks his ass, not a papa and mama as Ferrero.

More of this Carlos caN't iMproVe buT my bOy siNner can nonsense (proceeds to list out things that Alcaraz is "horrible" at which implies an area or two for him to work on, while talking about mentality putting him against a 22 yo who was taken out by Altmeir not too long ago).

There's so much funny nonsense here. Sinner was getting kicked in the nuts in five setters including against Z in just the last slam but no he has the better mentality between himself and Alcaraz. Not only that but Alcaraz who defeated an actually good Djokovic in the centre court is also said to be unEliTe.

To anyone with two functional eyes, it is clear that there are several things Alcaraz can and most likely will improve upon, just as there were for Sinner when he was the age of Alcaraz (but I forget that Sinner picked up the racquet only as a hobby at 21 ig).

But yeah it's Sinner circlejerk time now ig. Can't stop this momentum here.

Picked Sinner when this was asked in 22. Sticking to it.

Seeing things play out now if I had to pick numbers I'd say Sinner wins 5 and Alcaraz 4.

That gen is not better than Alcaraz. But 3 of them serve better than Alcaraz.

So even crap gen is GETTING wins over him. Why should I care if he won 2 already. The point is he has a weakness in this era of giants. He won 2 but most don't want him single digit slams.
