It seems that the new generation has taken over. Not to mention Murray who would have probably been far if not for his injury.

Taking over what?

These guys are the top players in the world.

Best slam of the youngster so far. Only two of them were in the top10 at the start of the tournament.

Great to see Berdych and Gasquet make a slam QF at last - it's been a good tournament for the young guns with Berdych taking out some good players, Gasquet despatching the French contingent almost single-handedly, and Djokovic showing amazing heart and courage to win over Hewitt and avenge that disappointing showing at the US Open last year against him.

Shame Murray couldn't be healthy and here, but there we go. It's another step forward for the new new balls please.

I was just reflecting on this fact. It is indeed nice to see all of them make the QFs.

Yay I love these youngsters

Murray + Nole will be top 4 by end of 08.

The others will be consistant top tenners.

Yes, I was just thinking how 5 of the final 8 are Baby Balls. And finally first-time GS QFs for Berdych and Gasquet! I'm most impressed by Djokovic because I didn't think he would be able to beat Hewitt on grass.

And the three old dudes. :lol:

This is good to see though. Hopefully they can keep up this kind of level of play.

And Djokovic, Baghdatis and Nadal all beat players of Roger's generation in their 4th round matches. At least the Old Balls are guaranteed one semifinal spot in Fed vs Ferrero (probably two as it's unlikely Richard will beat Roddick :o ).

Actually Gasquet is 21, Birdshit is 22. How are they baby balls? That's a mature tennis age. Now if we had some 17-18 year olds in the QFs go ahead and label them Baby Balls.

Baby balls meaning the generation after the fab four.

Awww. I'm having nostalgia for the Late 2004-Early 2005 "Hewitt/Roddick/Federer/Safin Four Way Dance Of Doom" times. And then Nadal came and turned everything upside down.

It kind of makes me sad though. I always go through a little moment of crisis when I realize all my favorites are getting older and the younger guys are coming up.

I'm so happy to see Berdych in the quarters :bounce: He so deserves it!! :yeah: His game on grass this season is :inlove:

And the other 3 (Roddick, Federer, Ferrero) were all fighting for #1 four years ago. Looking forward to seeing where this new batch of youngsters are in four years time...

It's nice to see the younger generation coming through and I hope they keep it up but also it's sad to realize your other favorites are starting to be considered old or older players.

Great for Gasquet after his shit early season and clay season, it was starting to get desperate for him. Now he can only hope against all hope to beat Roddick, but if he's on he can defeat anybody (ok except Federer at Wimbledon).

This is indeed their best slam, the remaining thing is to see when and who among these guys will win a slam. Berdych is back at the top-10 and Richard is very close, even if he does not win tomorrow he should make it later this summer.

Actually Berdych is 21, and won't turn 22 until Sept.17th,2007.

Maybe, but he's got 685 points to defend over the summer. He won Gstaad and got the fianls of TMC Canada so he has his work cut out for him.

Spot on, I was only thinking about Haas winning in LA last year, totally forgot about Gstaad :o

He's got Davydenko to contend with at Gstaad but other than him, he could definitely win it again. I wonder what happens if he beats Roddick (highly unlikely( though....I'm not sure he would even go to Gstaad but that wouldn't be much of a concern since he would be a Wimby SFist. :)

Gasquet And Berdych have had easy draws to make the quarters so far, i do not expect they will be in quarters of a slam very often at least they get another easy-medium draw

Marek.
07-06-2007, 04:51 AM
Yes. :)

Thanks for the clarification.:)
Can't see Gasquet defending that if he even shows up.

Berdych into the top 10. Gasquet to follow if Haas does not recover soon. Vamos Baby Balls!

Considering the entry list it does make me wonder who of the top five
will show up at gstaad

dont these guys from the entry list all seem currently familiar?;)
1 Davydenko, Nikolay RUS 4*
2 Gasquet, Richard FRA 13
3 Youzhny, Mikhail RUS 15
4 Baghdatis, Marcos CYP 19
5 Ferrero, Juan Carlos ESP 20

davydenko is the most likely to show

:lol: Yeah, Davydenko wouldn't have missed this if he had won Wimbledon. He might be the only one of those guys that shows up.
