Which of these players will end up with the best career?

These guys are all 23 and under.

Nishikori- Great results after USO last year and AO this year, bit small frame, but huge talent. If he stays healthy...
Dolgopolov- Wild game, crazy talent, headcase.
Cilic- Long, rangy, good strokes, but not enough power especially on serve in order to challenge the big guys.
Raonic- Biggest serve this side of Vancouver, rest of game needs work, especially quick direction changes.
Tomic- Hyped to the max, very talented, smart game, his only weakness may be himself and his own hype.
Dimitrov- A bit of a mug, but also very talented.
D. Young- Late bloomer, but is poised for a good 2012.
R. Harrison- Up and comer, great all around game, just needs to control it all and mature mentally.
Berankis- Fell a bit last year, but has top 50 talent.
Delbonis- Should have broken through by now, but should in the next year.

All have talent.

To me, its either going to be Tomic or Raonic.

Stebe deserves being mentioned

Shit, I knew I forgot someone.

Head says Tomic,Heart says Raonic.. Maybe Harrison and Nishikori too.. Will stick with Raonic.

Easy answer, really. NardDog!

Tomic. Unfortunately.
The guy has the head. What many youngsters with more talent lack

Exactly this. Tomic's boyish good looks will set him apart from the rest.

Federico Delbonis???

02-08-2012, 10:00 AM
Bernie Tomic for sure. Thread closed!

02-08-2012, 10:03 AM
Stebe deserves being mentioned

Why people overrate him here so much? Maybe if he is lucky he gets somewhere around 50 in the ranks but thats it.

Milos has a great personality and attitude, he is a real workhorse, but doesn't have Tomic's talent (touch).

02-08-2012, 10:08 AM
Raonic I feel.

As long as it isn't Tomic i'll be happy though.

02-08-2012, 11:34 AM
Head says Tomic,Heart says Raonic.. Maybe Harrison and Nishikori too.. Will stick with Raonic.

I also second this, and Raonic got my vote in the poll. I think that he's exactly where he needs to be mentally, and he will only get stronger over time.

02-08-2012, 11:35 AM
Nishikori.. He is a great talent and he has the best attitude from the list. I fear only because of injuries.

02-08-2012, 12:00 PM
Well I was worried at the end of last year whether Tomic will ever rise up to the challenge and show the commitment needed to reach the top. But after seeing him this January and both his physical training and consistency he has developed, he is just starting to get into his own and the rise will be pretty sudden. Now the only test is whether he can meet the expectations and not have any mental meltdowns.

02-08-2012, 12:21 PM
Another vote for Tomic.

Delbonis, arr I don´t know ... if he´s on poll, Cedrik Marcel Stebe or even Martin Klizan should have been there.

02-08-2012, 04:26 PM
I'm keeping my eye on James Duckworth.

02-08-2012, 04:53 PM
Raonic or Tomic, hope Raonic

Tomic and Ranonic can win GSs. Also, Nishikori, Dimitrov or Harrison can be constant top 10 players but they need some improvements.

02-20-2012, 04:31 PM
I like to think Nishikori. But I suspect some yet unknown guys will do better than all of these.

02-20-2012, 04:45 PM
tomic by far

02-20-2012, 07:05 PM
It's weird to see Cilic in this poll... because it also implies that del Potro is in this age range.

I voted Raonic. Outside of the Hewitt match, he's proven to be the strongest mentally. Injuries will be his main issue but, like del Potro, all better watch out when everything is clicking.

Nishikori will likely be the one who stays higher ranked the longest but, like Ferrer, can't see him winning the big one. I also see great upside with Harrison and, reluctantly, Tomic though it will be small steps this year. Harrison knows he needs to end the tantrums on the court whereas I see Tomic's off-court attitude being more of a problem before he is a serious threat.
