Re: "Here come the young guns" - ATP

Hmm, I wonder: Who are the two youngest players in the top 50?

It can't be, right? Surely not.

Oh wait, yes it can, its Raonic and Dimitrov.


Grigor Dimitrov Newest Member of Top 10
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga | Marcos Baghdatis

Andy Murray | Alexandr Dolgopolov | Milos Raonic
Pistol Pete

It's sad more than anything. If that's the future, tennis is set for a WTA spell.

Re: "Here come the young guns" - ATP

ah, youngsters shmugsters ... they are, in general, going nowhere. It's too bad, too sad but that's what it is. Yeah, some of them reached some masters semis, finals, whatever ... that's the best they can do??? What about slams? Right, Sharapov reached QF at the AO, after not being able to do better than R2 in '50' consecutive slams. uh, oh ... I'm so freaking impressed ... I just had an instant orgasm when I was thinking about youngsters and how successful they are NOT

Re: "Here come the young guns" - ATP

They are the young guns, sadly. The 21 and 22 year olds are just horrible, and Thiem is really the one bright spot among 20 year olds.



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

You're a youngster in general.. You'd be REAL young if you were an entrepreneur or starting up a business or any other regular career, but considering Tennis is a young man's game, you should be getting into your prime by that age.. and a few years down the line you're already a veteran.

Though, I'd include Haas in the young man category.

yeah..but he seems to be one of those people that simply cant take a good picture.

look there's nothing wrong with promoting the " younger" guys that are making noise. The ATP doesnt have several young players either in their teens or barely out of them who have made noise already.

Its sad that the ATP considers 24 young now when there are girls on the WTA like bouchard ,cepelova, beck, stephens, keys, svitolina, puig and vekic who are barely 20 or younger and already establishing themselves.
