From those 8 Tsonga is and will be the only Slam contester. The others are so far from him...

Tsonga was the only one who lived up to the hype.

Tsonga for sure but none of these guys in the OP's original list have accomplished anything significant and most of them failed miserably. The Part 1 list did bring some great champions.

AJ, I'd suggest you create the Part 3 with Dimitrov, Tomic, Jerzy, Goffin, Harrison etc ...

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

I can't believe how hyped Korolev was on the first pages of this thread. I mean, WTF? Above Tsonga, Cilic, Gulbis...Was he so special 6 years ago or what?
I watch tennis regularly and can recognize most of top 150 players but I don't have a clue who Korolev even is, never watched him play and it looks like there won't even be a chance. What a fail.
Zverev isn't much better. Made some noise few years back, but nowhere to be seen lately.

AO2017 is best chance for Zverev and Tsonga to live up to their hype from 10 years ago.

I like how Cilic was underestimated on MTF from the get go. Nothing changed.

Rublev the new Korolev?

It's all PR... Someone started talking about Coric and now you guys believe he's so wonderful kid, his highest ranking - 84, Dzumhur highest ranking - 87. The same actually. Difference? Coric made it via wildcards - to Basel for example, Dzumhur had to reach it by hard work, on qualies, challengers.

Would love it to be Tsonga, but it looks absolutely certain Cilic has got this.

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

Wow, amazing bump. There had been a lot of hype around Korolev -- I remember liking his baseline style and thinking he could go far in the sport; I believe one year I saw him lose in a great match in the final round of qualies at the US Open, to an American who specialized on grass (forget his name). At the time it was a worrying but far from fatal loss, but he never pushed through in a significant way.

From the original list, in retrospect it's not surprising that it was the shortest guys with the least success overall. Korolev and Young weren't built big enough for the modern sport; they peaked as juniors.

Otherwise, only Tsonga and Cilic turned out to be credible top 10 players from the entire list.

Great to see this resurgence from the extremely talented and varied all-court Mischa Zverev, with inspiration coming from his younger brother. Incredible story.

Djokovic // Del Potro // Paire // Thiem // M. Zverev // Youzhny
Coric // Khachanov // Donaldson // A. Zverev // Bublik
Ferrero // Rafter

If Tsonga takes AO, which could happen now that his worst matchups are out, he would pass Cilic.
