Just Cause has another pretender to the throne.

Phil Simmonds

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Querrey is slow, when was the last time somebody slow won a Grand Slam. Once Young gets his teeth into the ATP tour, his confidence will rise as well as his success.

he actually moves pretty decently, considering he's 6'6.

I think he'll be the most successful, because he has the most weapons. Maybe when Young goes through his major growth spurt he will develop some weapons, but when's the last time a guy won a Slam with no weapons either?

Re: Most successful American young'n

Out of the Americans?

No doubt Sam Querrey, hes not even 12 months into his pro debut yet, so he is *still* a Rookie, and hes already in the top 100, thats remarkable by its self. Beaten some good people, Took Nadal to 3 last summer, the kids got game.

the others are still improving, but right now, Sams the best we have to offer.

How olds Young? 17? major growth spurt? he's not going to grow much more, his height is no excuse.

As far as I know, he hasn't had his growth spurt yet. Many guys keep growing well past 17.

There are 2 issues that I always feel effect such tall players; movement and injuries. The tallest player to win a grand slam in recent times is Richard Krajicek 6'5, but his career was continually troubled by injury. It is the major question that I have against the exceptional Juan Martin Del Potro 6'5 although based on a video link on another thread he seems a very good mover, but can he avoid injuries.

Tennis players may be taller than average, but wait to see if the giants take over.

While I agree, I think it's hilarious that a Ljubicic homer is calling anyone a clown.
