We all know the old guard: Federer, Hewitt, Nalbandian, Safin, Roddick...

We have a new no. 1 : Nadal

The new stars: Djokovic, Murray, Gasquet.

The stars that shone this year for the first time: Tsonga, Gulbis

Does anybody here knows a lesser known player to rise and shine in the near future ?

I don't have such knowledge, but at least i'd like to propose Brasil's Thomaz Belucci...

Gulbis?

What did he do this year? Fluke a QF at Roland Garros. Did he play any SFs this year. For that matter, did he ever play one in his career?

Overrated guy.

Eduardo Schwank and Fabio Fognini (at least on clay) are good prospects in my opinion.

Others:

Robin Haase
Thomaz Bellucci (as mentioned)
Jeremy Chardy
Viktor Troicki
Kei Nishikori
Leonardo Mayer
Mikhail Kukushkin
Peter Polansky
Mischa Zverev
Adrian Mannarino
Joao Souza
Sam Groth
Brydan Klein
Carsten Ball

To what extent guys like Querrey, Anderson and Groth can be seen as talents or as serve-only-players will depend a lot on how they can improve their game in general in the following years.

and if you look at the very young guns, there's Bernard Tomic, Ryan Harrison and Uladzimir Ignatik e.g.

MILOS

Donald Young
Kei Nishikori
Bernard Tomic
Grigor Dimitrov
Filip Krajinovic
Ryan Harrison

Gulbis has chance.

Nishikori is also a good player.

But still, there are many, young talented players at the moment, asking for the next star is a bit premature, I think.

With some patience and consistency, I'd go with Team Gulbis too.

I hope Henri Kontinen will make an impression on the tour. He won the junior FO doubles and lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the junior Wimbledon final where he played serve&volley :).

Also Harri Heliövaara might do alright, he won the junior AO doubles in 2007 I think.

Jarkko has carried the Finnish flag alone for long, it's time to pass it on in a few years, hopefully to more than one player :)

Ernests and Marin, for sure;)

Why is Ernests mentioned in the first post and Marin isn't? As much as I know Gulbis is a month older, Cilic currently has a better ranking (32 vs 38), has beaten Gulbis before and has had better results than him in total. I like Gulbis too but I don't get it how is he still getting advantage against Cilic?

Federer isn't "old" guard.

He is in the sense that Hewitt, Safin, and Roddick are "old guard". He's also still awesome, despite what recent MTF echos might tell us, but that's beside the point.

Since when did Nalbandian deserve to be mentioned in that list of slam winners?
