When Tomic turns 20 in one month, who will be the best teenager on tour?

Jack Sock and Tomic turns 20 very soon, does anyone know which teenager has a good chanse to enter the top 200 this or next year?

Someone who follows juniors tennis better than me, a quick look at the ranking and I couldnt find any 93s at all anywhere close to top 200. Who is the best teenager on tour born later than 93?

who knows! Both has huge upside potential

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

Guilherme Clezar was born 31th December 1992 so he will be best teenager at the end of the season, ahead od guys born in 1993. And yeah, Jason is doing great progress

Re: When Tomic turns 20 in one month, who will be the best teenager on tour?

number of ATP points in the Race if I'm not mistaken :

1. Guilherme Clezar (Bras) 138
2. Jiri Vesely (Cze) 137
3. Taro Daniel (Jap) 116 (a Japanese who plays mostly futures in Spain, which is brave, I think, also because most of them are 10 K futures then give few points despite good draws mostly on clay)
4. Jason Kubler (Aus) 108 who looks good but has been injured for a while, still in the draw in Todi at the moment

A young Korean, who had been injured, is also coming back : Jeong Suk Yong, he's in semifinal in Ningbo challenger at the moment and has 92 ATP points since the 1st of january

Roberto Carballes-Baena, a Spaniard, is also near them, has also been injured, I think.

Luke Saville, another younger Australian, is also near 90 ATP points in the Race.

Another Brasilian who was promising, Tiago Fernandes, has been in a mess for a while.

useless old guy

Prepare for the dark ages of tennis when the current generation retires.

Have we ever had a top 200 without any teenager before?

The 90-92 generation seems atleast a bit better than the 93-94, there were a bunch of them in the top 200 a couple of years ago.

2009 and 2010 were first years since 1973 without teenagers in Year end Top 100. Bernard and Ryan were in that group last year and who knows when we will get another teen in Top 100 at the end of the year

Not sure for Top 200 though, but it doesn't look good at the moment. Only Tomic, Harrison and Marti were in Top 200 as teens at the end of 2011.

Your answer here: http://live-tennis.eu/rankings_under_21 : Clezar, Mitchell and Kubler. 2 Aussies there.

Whoever of Fed/Nadal/Djokovic/Murray retires last will win a zillion GS because none of these youngsters is stopping them.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

No. Highest ranked teenager with a single hander is Thiem.
