Dimitrov. I would expect that he will only get better. The scale of his recent chokes was concerning, however, we are talking about matches against the very best.

Tomic on the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if his ranking drops. Nothing would surprise me really. (Though having said that, I don't suppose he's defending much from last year)

Losing 3 sets against Murray x2 and Djokovic after being 5-2 up is seriously concerning. Yes,he is young but still should have a bit more confidence
He defnitely has the game to challenge the top guys though.

How are these two the most promising of the young generation?

Raonic is the most promising for sure.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

As for the question, Dimitrov.

Raonic is the most promising for sure.
The widely prevalent slow courts won't really help Raonic who massively depends on his serve.Plus Raonic can't really improve his game much while Dimitrov and Tomic are all-round players who can improve on the various aspects of their games

Though I must say Raonic has had the best results.

Of course Raonic can improve his game massively. His movement and backhand don't have a lot to be desired but both can and most likely will be improved on within time. We've already seen signs of improvement in both aspects year on year since he's turned pro. Itt's only really a matter of time before both are significantly improved.

As for slow courts, they aren't bad for Raonic at all. He's one of those players that can hit through any court and can use time on the ball better than most.

Raonic definitely is one to watch for but I still feel Dimitrov will have a better career. I may be wrong but Dimitrov has matured alot this year. He beat Raonic too this year in Brisbane along with Tomic so he has shown can beat his generation. All he needs is the mental side of the game.

Raonic is just a 2.0 version of John Isner.

I'm sure he'll crack the top 10 before Dimitrov, but he's not gonna win any Grand Slam...

Best shot would be at Wimbledon or the AO. Having watched him a lot the past few years though he will be a Slam contender in the future. He has a higher ceiling than Isner does.
