Post Which Group of Young Talents Has More Long Term Potential?

Group 1 - Ernests Gulbis, Simone Bolelli, Evgeny Korolev, Robin Haase, Viktor Troicki

Group 2 - Kei Nishikori, Sergiy Stakhovsky, Samuel Querrey, Marin Cilic, Del Potro

Group 1 reflects young guys who have not yet managed to claim a title with group 2 being the opposite, i know Del Potro and Cilic are the best out of the lot but i was wondering in terms of long term potential who you guys thkink is the better group and not only at present, i say group 2 based on cilic, potro and kei

Post Re: Which Group of Young Talents Has More Long Term Potential?

Here's what I think of each player there and their potential.

Korolev - can be a very good player but has been dissapointing so far. Maybe Top 50-30
Gulbis - has got the talent, but keeos facing better opponents early on in tournaments, and chokes a lot. If he can be more consistent I think Top 20.
Bolelli - will be Top 30 some time. Good player, not amazing.
Troicki - will be Top 20 in the future. He can be very dangerous, but is dissapointing at times.
Haase - has dropped out of the top 100. injured? I think he can become a Top 40-30 player.

Cilic - might be Top 10 his year. He is living up to his talent.
Del Potro - has an extremely good chance of gaetting into the top 5 after Wimbledon. Depends on how Davydenko and Roddick do. He, IMO can't get any better than what he is right now.
Querrey - IMO, can be Top 20 material. He just needs to be a bit more consistent and get to 4th round and quarter finals of the Grand slams.
Nishikori - Has a very good chance of making top 30 this year. If he becomes better, maybe top 20-10.
Stakhovky - is a good player. I don't think he can do any better than Top 50-40 though. If he improves a lot, then maybe top 40-25.

That's what I think they can all do. This is based on their skill so far. I could be miles of on some players. For all I know Korolev will be top 20 next year. Here comes Evgeny!!

Anyway I pick Group 2.

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 2 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 630-174...
TITLES: 44 and counting...

The group of late maturers of The Gooch, Bang Bang, The King and Boggo have far more potential.

Total bandwagon thread.

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".
