Which young players will have a breakthrough year?

11-23-2002, 09:30 PM
I know a lot of people think Richard Gasquet will have one but who else do you think is going to have a breakthrough year?

Perhaps Brian Dabul?
Maybe Bogdanovich?

or, finally, Mario Ancic?

What say you?

I don't know, but since now I hope that Gasquet and Ancic could be the surprises or the breakthroughs of the year.

Ancic needs to learn how to win the match after a big win.

Hope he does it coming season.

Misha will get right up there towards Top 10

Who is Misha ?

11-24-2002, 12:04 PM
Misha = Mikhail Youzhny

TBE do you know something about Misha Zverev?

11-24-2002, 04:39 PM
15 yrs old and he plays for Germany while we have a 15 yr old Misha Bekker playing for us.
Zverev is alot better as well :mad:

Steve Darcis
Kristof Vliegen :D

Perhaps Dudi Sela will have a good first year in the ATP too. He has been doing quite well lately in ITF, especially with that win in Luxemburg

11-27-2002, 12:30 PM
Has anyone had a chance to follow Selifu Mohammed ? He is 15 years old and supposed to be quite good:

I think Gasquet is a couple years off his big "breakthrough" year, personally.

11-27-2002, 06:12 PM
Any special reason for this thought, Rebecca? Do you think he still needs to improve, mentally?

Well he hasn't yet had a full year on tour. He only went pro officially after the US Open. He turns 17 around the French Open. Yes, his challenger results have been impressive. But there is a big difference between being a good challengers player, and coming from the oblivion to start winning main tour titles.

Mikhail Youzhny and Marco Chiudinelli ;)
