Taking a look at the boys French Open

Top three seeds are

1) Luke Saville (Aus)
2) Gianluigi Quinzi (ITA)
3) Liam Broady (GBR)

If you follow the juniors at all, you'd know that all three are very talented. I think they all have a possibility of becoming a top player in the future, and it will be interesting to see which one prevails. My pick is Quinzi, the guy is a superstar in the making, provided his body continues to grow.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Quinzi being the 2nd seed when he's 16 is pretty h4x.

Broady, because he will be the first Britain to win a Slam since Perry.

On Murray

Re: Taking a look at the boys French Open

There has been some talk about Quinzi lately, he must be good. Good to finally see GB have some talent too.

Lol, now that you mention it, didn't people say exactly the same about Tomic?

“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.”

Noah Rubin (USA, 1996) made 1/8.. that's also great

Re: Taking a look at the boys French Open

Broady's got a monster lefty forehand.
Saville is rock solid, very good foundation of his game.
Quinzi is a clay-courter.

Re: Taking a look at the boys French Open

Just had a look at Quinzi,s Junior results ! WOW ! And only 16 ! It,s a big step from juniors to seniors thought ! Broady with all due respect has been hopeless since Wimbledon last year ! He needs to stop playing juniors ! I mean he,s 18 What,s the point ! He,s stiffling his own development !

5 Australian Opens
3 Wimbledons
2 US Opens

No, I said mini-Nadal, I don't think anyone has been at Nadal's level by 17 before
