Where are young talents?

I feel like ATP is going to be like WTA (The new WTA) in few years with boring and insignificant players.

Raonic/Sock/Harrison - apparently these clowns are going to dominate ATP soon.

I can see Tomic/Harrison start doing well. Raonic and Dmitrov seem to inconsistent and lack the mental toughness, in my opinion

They're beating seeds at Slams.

Maybe you should look outside of Nadal for once.



Either way, fact is, the game is now truly a young man's game as opposed to being a very young man's game. Physically the game is different than even 12 years ago. It was a lot easier to break through, even at the slams, being some prodigious teenager with no physical stamina and with a lack of mental game. Game has clearly become extraordinarily physical and mental which requires additional years to develop which is why we see most players have their breakthrough 20-25 as opposed to many of the past greats who took first blood before they were 20. Plus, no matter what people may believe, the top 100 field is still quite deep. There are a lot of big names in the mix.

The ATP will never be like that trash WTA.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Raonic's mental toughness is a strength, not a weakness. He is nothing like Dimitrov.
