if they both stay healthy, Carlos. Carlos' game adapts better on all surfaces.

Sinner's game is better suited for hc's. He needs to do great at this FO or Wimbledon to change my mind.

People also need to remember that Jannik was the OG next big thing. Just took a while to get his feet warmed up even as the younger Raz stole some of the limelight that was to be his.

Sinne wants the light shown brightly on him now.

I think Alcz has a little better all-court game and attitude, but Sinners is developing very well. I would say my gut reaction would just be Alcz, but we will see how Sinner ends the year. Suppose the same with Alcz.

I would still pick Alcaraz, but definitely could see Sinner getting his groove on the end of the year and definitely capitalized to start this year. As just mentioned in another thread though, he still hasn't felt that top player, favorite pressure and dealt with the full player hype, so that can be distracting and we saw Alcz lay low to end last year and work on some things (still not sure that was planned by his team or just the pressure).

It looks like Sinner has improved many aspects of his game even in the last year - serve, slice, net finishes, physicality etc. Has Alcaraz improved visibly in anything since his USO title 1.5 years ago. Wonder if Sinner is more hard-working to keep improving compared to Alcaraz to whom the game seems to come more easily? Will this make a difference in the long run?

Eventually, I think Alcaraz, because he started winning earlier in career. However, Sinner can beat him as well, I think. This will be the rivalry in men's tennis for the next decade or so. Hope Rune joins in.

There's the same number of HC and non-HC slams, so that makes it a fair race.

The guy is a volatile brat with an interesting game. Couldn't be further from bland unless being a copycat of Nadal like Carlos is your only definition of exciting. :p

With the rate at which Sinner has improved in the last six months and the rate at which Alcaraz has been getting injured since this thread was created, it makes me wonder if a new poll would get the opposite results.

Alcaraz is dinged while Sinner's redlining, we'll see how those two things play out. Recency bias says Sinner wins more ofc.

Rune is a big match player, I hope/think these 3 will be great rivals for the next 10 years.

Right now it's a guessing game. Nobody picked Novak when he was trailing Roger by 15, and Rafa by 8.
Why would we pick Nole when he was at 2 slams. That would be stupid.

This race is between two guys who are at similar slam count and similar age.

I think Sinner will end up with more Majors than the fragile young Spaniard.
Neither of them will get near big 3 territory, though.

He's been somewhat disappointing, yes, but he's still only 20. I would give him some time and see if he can improve from here. Sinner at his age was only a prospect as well, remember?
From my observation, Rune lacks the power, from such big a guy. Power is one thing that can't be taught.
