Great comparison. I was taken aback by how Kyrgios always goes for huge serves and forehands in the matches of him that i've seen.

Who do you think has more potential, Kyrgios or Kokkinakis?

You're absolutely right

Novak Djokovic — Juan Martin del Potro
Seppi — Garcia-Lopez — Simon — Klizan — Gasquet — Paire — Pouille — Halys
and every single Australian player out there

I like the Belluci comparison, though Quinzi seems like a better athlete : already listed as 6'3 and strongly built , kinda similar to Nadal. http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Gianlui...ps/WepJULZh7yl

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

Or Rafael Bellucci?.... Thomaz Nadal?
I'm kind of bummed Quinzi lost though. I wanted (or more like expected) him to win the whole thing.

There are still other junior slams. He will probably be a big favorite to win the French Open and US Open.

Haha Baldi looks indeed rather similar physically speaking to Nadal

I agree with PTWahoo about Quinzi, his game isn't really that similar to Nadal's and i'm not sure about the Bellucci comparison. we will see how his game keeps developing but, clearly, it will keep shifting into the more attacking/aggressive baseliner type. i think his defensive abilities are a bit overrated. His first serve, though, is pretty decent too, for his age, and it could really turn into a weapon with his good height to help him develop it with time.

I wouldn't compare GQ to either of those guys. From what I have seen his backhand is relatively stronger compare to them. Also, he doesn't strike me as a ballbasher like Bellucci.

Kyrgios defeats Baldi 6-2 6-1. Hopefully Kokkinakis can win to ensure an all Aussie final

Novak Djokovic — Juan Martin del Potro
Seppi — Garcia-Lopez — Simon — Klizan — Gasquet — Paire — Pouille — Halys
