Future of tennis is now! Really?

Dimitrov, Berankis, Harrison, Mannarino,Sock ... all lost. And then somebody say Cilic is a loser or Fedex should retire!? Michael Chang times are long time gone, somebody please activate more Shuettler friends from senior tour.

Re: Future of tennis is now! Really?

I consider some of them really talented. I don't know the answer, as I guess nobody really knows. Most probably these "youngsters" lack mental strength, which is crucial in this sport. Harrison showed huge mental in IW, I don't even have any idea how he managed to lose to Schuettler last night. Same for Dimitrov. Seems like the upcoming generation matures very late.

Re: Future of tennis is now! Really?

From all the "youngsters" only Raonic & Harrison are top 10 material IMO
Maybe Dimitrov too

1/3 of that has already happened. The youngsters have been good lately, let's not forget that just because of one bad tournament.

Re: Future of tennis is now! Really?

Raonic is the most overrated player since Gulbis. 2-m tall is the only reason he is better than the rest. At 28, he will be almost retired.

MTF should retire.

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".

Re: Future of tennis is now! Really?

for next years the future of tennis is still Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro, maybe Gulbis, Cilic, Dolgopolov or Nishikori can join but anyway Tomic, Harrison and others are probably for a little bit later.

By the way, I've seen many people involving Dolgopolov with 90+ generations (Berankis, Raonic, Dimitrov, etc) but the nearest to them is Nishikori, born in december 1989, who is one year younger than Dolgopolov and is currently number 34 in the Race.

useless old guy
