He has chance, but I hope not.

When the top 4 grow older, he has the best chance among the current crop of young players.

Even if that is true, do you think next year Raonic will be winning Masters and playing slam finals? I don't think so.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

He (like everyone else in the Universe) will win one before Mugray.

In a strong era, no. In an era after the big 3 retire, who is gonna stop this kid from winning a slam? Tomug, Young, Sock and Dimitrov...? So yeah, Raonic will win several slams when he's 24-26.

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

He's the best of his age group by far so it seems likely.

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

How gutting would it be for Murray if he doesn't win a Slam and in 5 years time there are no dominant players and Raonic, Dimitrov et al are all winning them? You'd think a Federer type player will come along again (not necessarily another Federer, which may never happen again, but a dominant player) but I'm not sure if that player is going to be Raonic. The next couple of years for him are crucial in his development.

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

I think he has the quality to win one, yes. Sure, he hasn't made his breakthrough in grand slam tournaments so far but then again hardly anyone outside the top 4 have been able to make a big impression in the latter stages of the slams lately.

It's important to remember that he is far from the finished article yet. He will need time to improve on his ground strokes even though his serve and mentality are both very good already. He is the most promising amongst the players in his age group and so despite the fact that it's difficult to look beyond the top few players right now, his time will surely come.

I'm not sure whether he has it in him to become world number 1 or win multiple slams, however. I think he will have a career akin to Ivanisevic but it's early days yet. I'm not the biggest fan of his style of play but I will be keen to watch how he develops now that he is becoming a consistent top 16 player. I wish him all the best.

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

I want Raonic to copy Berdych's game(except serve of course) who is also 6'5 tall.If he can play as good as Berdych from the baseline he will be No 1.

Re: Will Raonic win a grand slam in the future?

Of course
He just need more exprience, otherwise Murray already gone

Raonic is one of best under 26 years old

Maybe just behind Murray and Joker

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Nowadays you don't win slams with just a good FH and serve.

He also looks like he has the most limited game (apart from Sock) so he could find it difficult to break through that glass ceiling. It's possible he could win a slam or he may be one of those players who is dangerous at slams due to his serve but doesn't have the game to go all the way.
