I think Zverev or Bolelli will have the best career!

Juan Martin Del Potro: Simply the best!



Nikolay Davydenko * Mikhail Youzhny * Mario Ancic * Janko Tipsarevic * Andrey Golubev * Amer Delic * JP Brzezicki * Mathieu Montcourt * Ilia Bozoljac * Kei Nishikori * Thiemo De Bakker * Blaz Kavcic * Jerzy Janowicz * Henri Kontinen * Grigor Dimitrov * Tim Smyczek * Marcelo Demoliner * Lars Poerschke * David Goffin * Yuki Bhambri * Marius Copil

Re: Part 2. Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career?

I haven't seen much of these players but I have trouble seeing them being elite players and I only see Young doing anything real and that will take much time and effort and better attitude. I am not sure about Gulbis as I never saw him but did see his name around so he could be dangerous. Once more, like that other poll where you put Verdasco, Tsonga here is not young and is 4 years older than D. Young.

My prediction is that Gulbis and Cilic will be the ones who will have the best career

Young then Gulbis.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Gulbis and Cilic.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

Ditto, a to some extent, the same goes for Gulbis. I think those two are the ones with most potential, though I don't know who I'd put ahead of the other.

Re: Part 2. Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career?

It is a difficult call at this point, as these guys are still developing but they are at the point where they can play at the ATP circuit. By the way, Tsonga belongs to this group since he had injuries earlier on so he couldn't play a full schedule until this year. Here we go:

1. Korolev
2. Cilic
3. Gulbis
4. Young
5. Querrey
6. Bolelli
7. Tsonga
8. Zverev

Korolev for me has the most serious potential but he still has got some learning to do, he has some serious power from both wings and he is a good returner. His serve, while unconventional can be enough for the job. Hopefully he will stay healthy next year.
Cilic is very much like Ancic but with worse serve and better movement. He might still need the next year to develop but he has an excellent work ethic and I see him in the top-20 eventually.
Gulbis has some serious power and he also possesses surprising touch, he will need some time to mature mentally. I see him as having more potential than Cilic eventually but he seems to be seriously averse to clay.
Young is a very original player and can do very well but it remains to be seen what possible trauma was left from his early ATP matches and the record he carries.
Sam will need to develop a much better net game given his movement, and he will also need to close out matches successfully. He had a horrible end of the year but he will bounce back. One thing that people didn't notice was that he entered Barcelona and Estoril qualifiers early, it will be interesting to see whether he will follow the same policy next year.
I am not convinced about Bolelli, he certainly has the potential but needs to deliver. Tsonga is sadly fragile, otherwise his power could put him in the top-30. Zverev is great to watch but sadly he was born 15 years too late. Hopefully he can adjust his style a bit.

How about reading the first post you deluded individual and you will see why Tsonga is in the list. It's very clearly explained.

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".

you are right, you did mention it I am sorry , still I wouldn't put him there because these guys are only connected by their age and older guys respond differently to situations like losses which is so important for young player and their development thus the comparison may get skewed

Gulbis has much more to his game than ljubo..awful comparison by volandri fan.
For once, I agree with you.

Although both, to some extent, rely on their 1st serves. Apart from that, they are both pretty dissimilar.

Re: Part 2. Which one of these 8 youngsters will have the best career?

This is how I'd order them:

- Gulbis
- Korolev
- Cilic
- Young
- Zverev
- Tsonga
- Querrey
- Bolelli

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
