Of course, Nadal. He already belongs to the establishment.

Second is Gasquet.
He showed, that he can win mulitple titles.

He's not the only youngster who won multiple titles, if that's your only reasoning for putting him second.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

The best youngster apart from Nadal has to be Andrew Murray, he's shown his true potential and can beat anyone on his day. He has alot of room to grow. Next year he'll be above the Gasquet's, Djokovic's and Baghdatis's.

Murray is to petulent..(i think thats how you spell it) when things dont go his way.

he will never become a top 5 player if he does not cut out the unforced errors when things dont go his way.

I guess Connors and Mcenroe were to 'pectulant' dont confuse it with desire. Andrew Murray has got the same winning temprement. He plays big points like no one else. That's why he's beaten the likes of federer, ljubicic, hewitt, HE HAS NO FEAR!!

Murray needs to stop being a kid and start being a man to start winning multiple titles.

Gasquet owns him right now. Toronto showed that.

Murray is great and really entertaining, he just needs more time.

For now, apart from Nadal, I vote Gasquet. His night match against Hewitt at the US Open, even though he didn't win it, sealed the deal for me. I can't predict how big of a career he'll have, but he'll be one to watch for sure.

That was a very impressive match. Although Gasquet's had a rough start to the year, he has certainly improved as time went by.

Discounting Nadal, I would say that all of the young guys are really close right now. Especially Murray, Gasquet, Berdych and Baghdatis. If Marcos can perform in every tourney like he does at slams he'll reach the top of the game in a hurry.

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy
Missing: Andre | Safin | Women's tennis

I agree.

Andy needs to not let mistakes or missed opportunities dwell. He was battering Nole into submission and then made one bad game.. and well.. he threw it all into the trash.

Gasquet-Murray however is like a Fed v Nalby.. the flair and the genius against the two handed backhand-armed master of changing pace.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

WE'LL SEE WHO'S RANKED HIGHER AT THE END OF THE YEAR WON'T WE?! MURRAY 19TH GASQUET 20TH....

Since Andy's had Brad Gilbert in his corner I've seen alot of improvements. Though he lost to Gasquet he was extremely tired in that match... He and Brad Gilbert have just got together. It's early stages for Murray and he's ranked above Gasquet. Need i say more?

This is a no brainer, Rafa and Marcos, in that order.

The years isn't over yet my rraytarded friend.
When Gasquet manages to win one more match than Murray he will overtake him.
