Re: Part 2 : Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career? Cilic, etc e

Cilic and Querrey played a surprisingly decent match at Wimbledon. Then Zverev had a big chance to make the 3rd round, but blew it badly against Petzschner.

Code:
1. Tsonga	17-5
2. Cilic	17-7
3. Gulbis	9-7
4. Bolelli	8-6 ( not including W/O)
5. Querrey	6-7
6. Korolev	3-7
6. Zverev	3-7
8. Young	0-4

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Ernests needs to wake up, he's going backwards too.

Didn't Young make it to the 3d round of USO once?

Yes, DY did, but this thread was done after that achievement, so the above table is taken from the AO of the next year.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Uhh... Horrible list... I'll just pick Tsonga but he's too much of a showman. His game is very inconsistent. But I can definitely tell you who the worst is, Cilic, due to his face.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Gulbis on fire at the moment.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I think at this rate U.S Open 09 is very achievable and anyone with at least 1% Tennis knowledge understands this

Safin - Agassi - Kafelnikov - Kuerten -Soderling - Davydenko - Santoro -Edberg - Novak - Nalbandian - Ivanisevic
You dealin' with a few true villains
Federer - Wawrinka - Nishikori - Del Potro - Mayer - Rublev - Youzhny - Khachanov - Andrey Kuznetsov- Safiullin - Karatsev

Re: Part 2 : Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career? Cilic, etc e

Tsonga and Cilic, are so far ahead of these others at the moment.

Querrey had a good year and the bizarre injury to end it. Zverev, the mix of serve volleying and pushing from the baseline, no

Gulbis, well he can only improve on his 2009.

DY, peaking at the end of year Challengers when everyone else is tired and thinking about the next season.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Bolelli falls from 36 in February, to 94 year end. He's also on an 8 match losing streak, including a loss to Millot.

Filippo VOLANDRI, Pablo ANDUJAR, Yuki BHAMBRI, Fabio FOGNINI, Thomaz BELLUCCI,
Santiago GIRALDO, Donald YOUNG, Gael MONFILS, Juan Martin DEL POTRO, Alexandr DOLGOPOLOV

Re: Part 2 : Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career? Cilic, etc e

I believe Tsonga will have the best career, pending he can stay away from injuries. I think Querrey and Cilic come afterwards, but definitely Tsonga. Jo-Willie has more talent and potential at this point, and he's notched some huge wins over top players, so I give him the edge.

There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.

querrey is good but he is not of cilic's rang.
tsonga will be 25 for 5 months so he has too uch time for big time
on the other hand cilic has even better potential and he turn just 21 recently

Man, rereading the first posts, it seems Gulbis and Ronald Yong were hot stuff back in '07.

haha, i was rereading the first posts as well and everybody were talking about them. But both of them seems a little lost, aren`t they. I mean, the end of the season for gulbis was a little ok (considering the quaters in St. Petersburg and Tokio) but what about Young? where is he now?
