Which 'young' players will breakthrough in 2012

Raonic, Dimitrov, Harrison are the highest rated and ranked youngsters of their generation but Stebe, Paire, Pospisil, Berankis, Bedene, Goffin, Gianessi etc all impressed me to various levels in 2011 and I expect a few of these guys to rise to/solidify positions in the top 100.

It will be particularly interesting to see how Paire does this year, lot's of talent but absolutely nuts... it's going to be entertaining.

Has anyone watched much of Carreno-Busta? The highest ranked youngster that I've never seen play before.

Dimitrov will go backwards.

Re: Which 'young' players will breakthrough in 2012

as much as i trusted in beno to accomplish some big things watching him play couple of years back, im more and more beginning to believe that his mental part of the game will sideline him from it all

Re: Which 'young' players will breakthrough in 2012

Berankis will surely return to the top 75 if injury free and I would think also the top 50.

Pospisil has a lovely game and should comfortably join the top 100 next year.

Goffin though is an interesting one, I've seen him play a few times and really like his game but he just can't seem to put the results together. No idea if he'll break the top 100 but I do see a career best year coming next year for him.

He's already done so and (sadly) I agree he'll continue to do so.

Re: Which 'young' players will breakthrough in 2012

Paire is a great player, somehow similar to F. Mayer, he has nearly all the shots, and if he is on fire he could cause some damage, and do a great performance at a weak 250/500. Raonic has finished #31 in 2011, without having played 2 months, and missing tourneys that he could have caused dammage like L.A/Atlanta/Washington/Montreal/Cincy/USO..., i think that he could finish Top-20 easily on 2012. I don't expect much from Harrison, and i think It would be nice for Grisho to end in the Top-50 on 2012[i don't see many future on the Bulgarian]. Berankis if injury-free will end around #60 at least. I expect more from Stebe and Bedene than from Goffin & Gianessi.

Benoît Paire, Edouard Roger-Vasselin,Nicolas Mahut, Jeremy Chardy, Aljaz Bedene, Florian Mayer, Tommy Robredo, Evgeny Korolev, Albert Ramos, Guillaume Rufin

The next Serbian legend: Filip Krajinovic.

Re: Which 'young' players will breakthrough in 2012

Stebe should continue to rise. Peaking at 30 or so in his career. Del bonis will return along with bagnis.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Had forgot to mention DelBo

Was impressive in stuttgart, but results elsewhere really unremarkable. Not quite sure why he has failed to progress ranking wise in the last 18 months
