will Raonic be first 21 years old in nine years to win USOPEN

Raonic maybe first one since Andy Roddick at age 21 to win the slam

how about USOPEN

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

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

Raonic is 1/5 the player Roddick was in 2003

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Raonic will need to beat Murray, Federer and Djokovic. Not going to happen . He probably won't even win a set vs. Murray.

As much as I like Milos and trust me he is by far my favorite player....I just can't see him beating Murray, Federer and Novak to do so. I am ready to state that he will be top 10 by year's end.

To the OP--Have you been in a cave for the last nine years?

Raonic will probably win a slam what with the upcoming super weak era, but that will probably be in 2016 or something

Re: will Raonic be first 21 years old in nine years to win USOPEN

Well, I'm not going to rule it out, but the odds are stacked against him. Roddick in 2003 had a much better resumé going into USO. In fact, if Raonic were to win I believe he would be one of the least merited (beforehand) slam winners in the Open Era. Highest ranking 16, only titles three ATP 250s....

Raonic and Tomic two under 21 years old are only who maybe have a chance to win slam in two years

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

Del Potro was 21 in 2009 (he turned 22 a couple of weeks later)

EDIT: 20 going on 21, not 21 going on 22

Actually Delpo was still 20 when he won in 2009 (just a few weeks short of his 21st birthday).
