Like Grisha, very much dislike over the top predictions. Let the guy develop at his own pace in relative peace.

I love how it's bad Wonder if he would sign on winning 2 slams and an assortment of other things right now.

He'll win nothing of note this year. Guys like Nadal were already winning slams at 19 so until he does the same please stop these useless threads hailing the coming of the next tennis Jesus. Just because he copies Federer's game does not make him one.
But please!!!
Federer won his first GS 2003. He was 21.

Re: Grigor Dimitrov is the future.

I had watched him in Rotterdam two years ago and had been very impressed.

I saw him this year against Wawrinka and was disappointed because the problem is that he has grown quite tall then his movement really seems to be a problem. What would Federer be with a poor movement and more than 1.90 m ? In modern game, the movement is hugely important, nearly as much as the shots, even more than in Fed's beginnings.

What's Dimitrov's current height actually ?

For the mental side, he doesn't seem to be cold-blooded yet as well. So far on the mental side Tomic (who won a lot of tie-breaks), Harrison, Raonic and Berankis have been much more impressive to me.

All these aspects and especially his height/movement rather make me think of Safin than of Federer for his future so far.

I was very impressed with Raonic in Melbourne : Ferrer had to struggle the most of he could to beat him, and with the quickness of surfaces in the 90s, he would have had even a tougher time.

Raonic would have been a great player in the 90s, unfortunately the period is different.

Dimitrov is my favorite ahead of Harrison and Raonic, but I'm not so optimistic about his future.

So far I think that Nadal, Murray, Djokovic and Del Potro (if in full health) still have many good years ahead of them before any of these players challenging them (Tomic is unfortunately too tall as well : imagine how Nadal, Djokovic and Murray can run comparing to him, and I don't think he may have Del Potro's power nor, more importantly, his game on clay : Tomic is such a tool on clay).

Tomic and Harrison might be the best ones in the future.

Re: Grigor Dimitrov is the future.

the other upcoming youngsters will be more successful than him. he's not going to make it with a single-handed backhand in today's game.

We needed someone to carry on in the tradition of Word Life/Storm Lee etc with the ridiculous predictions.

Congratulations.

Let us know what you think of Dimitrov's chest hair as well while you are at it

Re: Grigor Dimitrov is the future.

Berankis and Harrison Have better Prospects.

Mannarino, im not sure, being french wont help his cause but he does have amazing game when on.
