Who will be the first 1990's born Grand Slam Champion?

There are a few names in mind but otherwise they haven't made the pro tour yet. Let me know if there are more than the poll choices

Tomic.
I'm a Harrison fan but really can't see anybody else than Tomic at the moment. Dimitrov is talented but doesn't have the quality shots of Tomic on both sides, Raonic neither. Ryan is a nervous wreck.

Tomic will be a multiple grand slam champion once Nadolerer era comes to a definite end.

Raonic is the only one with a brain and a consistent game, he could possibly pull off a Del Potro type performance at Wimbledon or the USO if his serve is on fire, he gets a kind draw, and the top players mug out. Other guys are just mugs.

Raonic got potential for it. He got the serve at least and fairly big groundstrokes. I do think his style could make him a bit injury prone. Hope he holds up. The others? Too early to tell but not gonna say never. The field will look all different in a few years

Hopefully Harrison, but he has a LONG way to go yet.

Surprised at the absence of incensed Dimitrov fans in this thread, demanding for him to be included in the poll.

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Sock already won a grand slam by the way.

Re: Who will be the first 1990's born Grand Slam Champion?

Tomic easily shown the most I think. Raonic's serve makes him a threat but it's yet to be known whether he's a Sampras or a Karlovic. Harrison looks like a mental midget, Sock looks OK but not really Slam-winning material.

But who knows? Grigor might start acheiving, or there could be a complete wildcard.
