Re: Some players to watch in 2005

i'd also say these two french guys, monfils and tsonga are maybe up and coming in 05. i don't think zverev will get through to the big dogs of the tour next year, maybe 06 or 07, he's gonna compete in challengers mostly i guess. we (i'm german) had a couple of those guys in the last decade, who did quite well as juniors, but as they entered the greater tournaments they lost. u guys remember daniel elsner? he was an also-ran. in 96 or something like that he won 3 (!!) gs as a junior plus orange bowl, and what happened? he never really made it. now he's like 400something in the world. makes u go hmmm as a german.
what about gasquet? last year and the year before almost every "expert" like johnny mac talked about him being an amazing player...maybe still too young? nadal is gonna come up definitely!! if he hadn't been injured this would have been a good season for him as well...
