italy:
87: fabio fognini (gianluca naso, matteo viola)
88: cesare gallo ( nothing else)
89: thomas fabbiano ( matteo trevisan)

Sorry, I wasn't able to chose one by year...

87 : Chardy
88 : Sidorenko, Mannarino
89 : Botti, Piro
90 : Inzerillo, Eysseric (there's a quite more players born in 90 who can be considered as french hopes but I try to respect a little bit your thread ;) )

Portugal

1988: Pedro Sousa (I'm not sure of his future)
1990: Gastão Elias
1991: Martim Trueva
1992: Miguel Almeida

I bet that last 3 names will be in ATP Tour (top 50/100).

Portugal don't/didn't has good tradition in tennis, only Nuno Marques got top 100 in 90's, but I have the hope in this 3 players and in 13 years old girl, Michelle Brito, to WTA Tour.

:wavey:

I have seen Owsian in action couple of times. Seems talented, but not converting it and I don't know the reason :shrug: Once it was injury, later, I don't know.

Starakiewicz - have seen him once. Too few times for me to predict. Seemed nothing better than Owsian... player-like I admit :shrug:

Chlebowski is the son our our local politician that's why I maybe didn't mention him. Of course, all good to him.

[02] Prepare for another star in the making
By Soteris Charalambous
BOOSTED by his success at the US Open last month, expectations were naturally high about Marcos Baghdatis' progress at this month's men's satellite tournament in Zurich. National Coach Yiannos Hadjigeorgiou was pleased to report, "He won the tournament and won't have to play any more qualifying matches, but more importantly he qualifies for the Masters tournament (at the end of the month).

"He beat a German player ranked in the top 250 on the ATP men's tour and a French player who had been in the top 150, got injured and was on his way back up, until he met Marcos."

His victory further emphasises the importance of the postponement of military service granted by the Council of Ministers, a fact quickly acknowledged by the President of the Cyprus Tennis Federation (CTF), Philios Christodoulou and Hadjigeorgiou, meeting yesterday to assess the progress of young players on the island.

But the focus of their meeting swiftly moved on, to something seemingly more pressing. Twelve-year-old George Koshis, from Paralimni, has just won the Open Benjamin in Bordeaux, an international tournament where he defeated the French number one and which included the best players from France and Portugal.

Hadjigeorgiou is not prone to overstatement, aware of the pitfalls of over- exposing his young ace. But the outcome of the meeting reveals the level of confidence they have in the player. He is being entered into the Junior Orange Ball competition in Florida, a competition that attracts the best talent in the world for his age group.

Is this too much exposure for the youngster? "No, the level is very similar to the tournament he has just won in France," replied Hadjigeorgiou.

For Cyprus to have produced one tennis talent of the calibre of Marcos Baghdatis is astonishing: for there to be another demonstrating the same potential is almost beyond belief.

"He's another Marcos," enthused Hadjigeorgiou, "He's at the same level that Marcos was at the same age."

Coming from anyone else, this may have sounded a little over-stated, but he is uniquely qualified to pass judgement. In the two and a half years before Marcos left for France, Hadjigeorgiou was his coach and to this day maintains regular contact. Since the beginning of the year he has coached young Koshis.

A similar performance in the US, to the one in France, will undoubtedly alert agents to his potential and result in him leaving Cyprus to be coached in another country.

Some parents might buckle under the emotional burden of losing a child before it has reached its teens in pursuit of a tennis career, but it is a sacrifice they are seemingly prepared to make. "Yes, we may lose him as we did Marcos. His family are very focused, but these are the sacrifices of modern tennis. There are hundreds of thousands of players competing out there," said Christodoulou.

The CTF president reluctantly accepts praise for the emergence of the two players from a country with very little tennis background. "They are exceptional talents, with the full backing of their families," he said. But put into an international context the achievement of the CTF is quite remarkable.

Countries like Britain can boast Tim Henman (Greg Rusedski chose to represent Britain after coming through US and Canadian academies), but as highlighted in a special report on Sky Sports there is little talent coming through, despite over £100 million poured into tennis every year. The CTF works with a tiny fraction of that budget.

In fact, its success has been such that in the latest meeting of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) the council voted not to award the CTF any further development funding. Christodoulou's strong opposition eventually reversed the decision, but it reflects the perception within the tennis world that Cyprus has now established itself.

"Making a breakthrough with Marcos was very important," said Christodoulou, "He will be the inspiration for more youngsters." He has already been the inspiration for one - George Koshis.

Hi, there are 3 very exciting young 95 players coming through together in GB, namely Luke Bambridge; Jonny O'Mara; and Mohammed Morsi. I would defifinitely look to one of these getting on the fringes of serious tennis in years to come, though as most of us well know junior potential is one thing;senior success totally another. There are also some v good 94s too that I am aware off due to my watching these guys playing the 95s mentioned above (one of whom is my son). Ones, IMHO to look for, are Liam Broady; Jathan Malik and Lucas Poelman though there are a number of talented others. Little Ross Wilson from scotland is also a very young but very tidy player (93 i think)

hi all

swedish tennis is having some problems producing players as you might know. we have a few good juniorplayers but they have a long way to go -

i think it's bad for the players development when they get "star" treatment because they are the national number 1 - some players might get satisfied with that and they get a problem following the development of international juniors. do you understand what i mean? Does people from other small countries experience the same thing?

anyway - here are the list - in my opinion:

-90 absolutely no one

-91 emil tzenov - might be too short, looks strong and fast but i think he will get problems earning easy points on his serve due to his shortness

-92 daniel berta - also very short - might get the same problems as tzenov. is romoured to be very serious, good coaches.

-93 nima madani - very talented, solid technique, nice onehanded backhand - has shown some motivationalproblems -

-94 to early to tell - no supertalent,

-95 jonathan mridha - solid strokes, moves ok, nice touch

-98 mikael ymer - probably the biggest talent ever in sweden at this age - almost in top 10 in the category for guys born -95 and earlier, moves badly and some technical problems but plays extremely smart - had no coach in the beginning of his "career" - just played alot of tennis with his brother, elias ymer, ranked top 6 in the -95 categorie

05-04-2007, 10:40 PM
They'll still have Soderling at least.

Mr. ME
05-05-2007, 02:38 PM
yeah - söderling and joachim "pim-pim" johansson if he gets his shoulder fixed should stay top 50 -

michael ryderstedt (-84) is fighting to break into top 100 and andreas vinciguerra is trying to comeback again after another injury, i don't know if you remember vinciguerra (-81), ranked 33 in the world at the age of 20, then got his career destroyed by injuries.

however, in 10-15 years there might be no swedes in the top 100 - compared to the 80s and 90s when we almost dominated the tour, it's sad and at the same time a example of what happens when a federation and the coaches within the federation stop to improve and develop. the game has changed, the way swedes practice hasn't changed.

finally some new people are working in the federation and some new coaches are trying to change the swedish way.

some of the best coaches in sweden, martin bohm, magnus tideman, peter lundgren, johan sjögren are not working with swedish tennis, the federation can't afford to pay the same salary as UK or Danmark.

there is a long way to go....

1990 - 1. Federico del Bonis: 122 (2. Facundo Bagnis: 250 - Guido Pella: 278 - 4.Marcos Trugeletti: 433)

1989 is the weakiest Arg and maybe entire wold generation.

I'm sure my country can dig up another half-Filipino, half-American who plays halfway decently on the ATP Tour to help our Davis Cup, Southeast Asian Games, and Asian Games teams.... *cough*CECILMAMIIT*cough*

Shame, though. In the past two years, we have produced two top-performing juniors players, Francis Casey Alcantara (who won the Boys' Doubles at the Australian Open last year) and Jeson Patrombon (who is somehow in the Top 50 this year). But tennis is given the short straw in Philippine sports, so despite Alcantara's win at the Aussie Open, nobody gave him much credit for it. Sigh.

Well, in spain the most promising u-20 players are Pablo Carreño (1991), Javier Marti (19992) and Carlos Boluda (1993).
But none of them seems like a top tier talent at this point.
Boluda was great when he was younger, one of the best u-14 european players of all time, but those who related his dominance at that age to a premature physical deveplopment and doubted about his chances to translate his dominance to the pro level might have been right. I still believe he can be a very good player and establish himself comfortably in the top 100 one day, but anything above that looks like a pretty long shot now.

Dominic Thiem won his third G1 title in Yucatan Cup meaning Austria will have ITF top 10 player on Monday.

It was all-austrian final with Dennis Novak being the other finalist. Based on this years' results from three Austrians who made SFs in Umag G1 in September there's a good promise for future of Austrian tennis imo.

Dominic Thiem ITF #12 born Sep 3, 1993
Patrick Ofner ITF #58 born May 6, 1993
Dennis Novak ITF #109 born August 28, 1993
