Re: Which young gun will win the most slams?

But to be honest, If I look forward at the time when all of those youngsters will be at their prime, the people who will be winning Slams are probably...

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

Re: Which young gun will win the most slams?

Hopefully Nishikori. Most interesting player of the bunch and nice game to watch. Don't get the Goffin interest - he's dull and apart from a couple of good runs hasn't shown a whole lot of consistency. He's not really that young. 22... Kei to me seems the most stable, works hard and is mentally pretty good most of the time.

Dimitrov looks like he should do well when you watch him in isolation but clearly there's something stopping him. Saw him trouble Nadal in 2009 Rotterdam - more than 3 years ago - and thought he'd break through. Thought the same after Wimbledon last year, that maybe that was the moment. Yet he never seems to capitalise and build on these 'moments'. Maybe he needs a new coach. Who knows. But my faith is waning.

Come on Kei!! Hold the fort before Quinzi comes along.

None of them really standout as guys who could win a slam.

Re: Which young gun will win the most slams?

Dimitrov is the most talented and exciting of the young guns and once he finally gets his head together, he will start winning slams.

Goffin to win slams and carry a lightsaber in the future... (it's going to be blue, like his twin's - Obi Wan)

Re: Which young gun will win the most slams?

So far Nishikori and Raonic are the only ones I can actually see winning slams. Raonic will no doubt keep improving so I have no real big doubt about him achieving 'big' things but with Nishikori it's definitely a case of trying to stay uninjured which is my biggest concern.

Re: Which young gun will win the most slams?

Looking at the list Murray and Djokovic may win a lot of GS titles in next 5 years.

Over next 5 years possibly only see 1/2 GS titles won by that list and not sure who; best guess Dimitrov and Tomic.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
