All of them.

The only possible exceptions are Kyrgios and Raonic but odds still are they won't.

IMO everyone except Zverev, for whose chances I have a relatively good feeling, and possibly Dimitrov if his AO form wasn't just a flash in the pan

I feel Kyrgios is extremely fortunate to be at an age where he can develop when the big 4 will finally start to fade. His serve is very effective and he can hit pretty heavy on the FH but on average his groundgame is rather tepid at times - see match against Seppi at the AO where he was content at just keeping the ball in the court. His mentality stops him from doing more but there are some real issues to nut out gamewise. If he improves fitness, ROS, and footwork, will give him a greater edge but at the moment while he can have some big upsets at times, his level is not quite enough to challenge baseliners and returners like Djokovic, Murray or even Nishikori. Not to mention his volatility and mental energy burnouts. He can mature of course, has the benefit of time and certainly can play good tennis when he chooses. A big question is how committed he wants to be and work to go from good to great.

Re: Which one of these will go slamless?

Actually, Milos is odds on to win one. World number 3s historically have won at least a slam or so.

Zverev is on schedule to win plenty.

Re: Which one of these will go slamless?

Raonic, Nishikori, Dimitrov belong to a different class than Kyrgios, Zverev, and Thiem. (Sock, Goffin, Pouille don't even belong in the discussion.) The former are more mature and well-rounded than the latter and have more experience on the biggest stages against the very best players in the world. The immediate future belongs to them, not Gen Next. Zverev may have his time, but let's not jump the gun on this one. I'll believe it when he gets to a slam SF or F. Same for Kyrgios, though I get the feeling that he might need a few more years before he matures enough to win a major.

Welcome aboard

Kyrgios definitely would have the potential, but he seems to be utterly uninterested in taking tennis seriously, so I wouldn't bet on him honestly

Re: Which one of these will go slamless?

I would say it will be hard for Goffin and Sock. TBH Coric I don't know well enough.

Raonic was three sets away from winning one, so obviously he has a chance. Dimitrov of course as well if he at least maintain the level he showed in Melbourne.

They are all still young, so as soon as the big 4 stop winning every big title, everything is possible for them.

Re: Which one of these will go slamless?

Voted all of them, except Thiem, Zverev and Dimitrov who have the best chance to do it imho. None of them is a given either, but I expect Thiem to further develop his game, Dimitrov to exploit the decline of the 30+ generation and Zverev to compete for majors in a year or two.

Players who have a slight chance:

Raobot could sneak one, but it's unlikely. He's prone to injury and to all players who can return his bombs, including Dimitrov. His movement is still a major weakness exposed by superior players. He will never be a good mover. He improved at the net, but is still mechanical. He lacks the hands, netgame will never come natural to him.

Kyrgios could win, but he would have to fully commit himself to address the weaknesses in his game and to finally get over his mental weakness to find excuses for his losses. I'm not convinced he can do it.

Nishikori will always be susceptible to players with a superior serve and power. He'd need to get lucky.

Pouille has taken a few steps backwards this season, not sure how much is connected to injury. In any case, there is so much to improve in his game, it's hard to see where he'll end up. At least there's more room for improvement than in remaining cases Sock (extremely weak backhand), Goffin (lack of power), Coric (difficulty to dictate play).

"The point is that to root for Federer is to root for a Platonic ideal. It is like rooting for truth. (...) Detractors who said, “Don’t you get tired of him winning all the time?” were missing the point. Every victory was a validation. No one gets bored by the sun coming up in the morning."
