Querrey
Gulbis
Cilic

Del Potro is already being quite impressive.

I´d give Nishikori a bit more time to develop physically, same goes with Cilic.

So I say, the moment

1)Del Potro
2)Gulbis

the rest...

Nishikori may have injury problems and Gulbis seems like he can't keep a high level for long right now.

Querrey isn't a "gun". :confused:

I guess that's why he had Nadal on the ropes and did very well this week.

Shouldn't Donald Young always be in these polls??

and why was that? Querrey got into Nadal's head for the 2nd and 3rd set, hardly anyone does that. something about Querrey bothered Nadal.

Will somebody please start a "Which young mug will turn out the best?" poll?

Querrey will have a solid career. I think he'll be a regular fixture in the top 20, with some appearances in the top 10 at times. If he gets a slam it'll be a fluke, ToJo style.

I voted for Nishikori. He and Del Potro are the only ones of this group who I see really challenging for slams. To me both of them just seem like they have the ability to sieze the moment, and don't tighten up in the big moments.

What the hell is Querrey doing on that list??

I'd say Del Potro.

Cilic. He is the nastiest of them all off the ground, serve and at the net, and seems to be the most cool headed. Del Potro is great talent no question, but he's been injured... hmmmm... dunno, wish him all the best.

Kei is too small, but blast the ball like crazy. Something tells me that his brains are gonna be fine, and he ain't gonna be no headcase. Just an impression. Still, will find it difficult to overpower big 'uns.

Little faith in Querrey. No flare, and movement is elephantish.

Gulbis is a first in headcase case order of the guys imo. Just how he acts on court, overly childish. Totally fits that 'spoiled rich boy' story that came up (though Im not sure its true). Had some nasty chokes and brakedowns. I like his game the most, along with Cilic's.

Yup, Čila all the way.

Doesn't matter. Cilic, Potro, not to mention Novak or Fed would toy with him.

Of course Querrey did play very well, but Nadal really wasn't and that's why he ran around like headless chicken! :p
I'm sure Sam will have a nice future, just not sure how big, need to see more of his matches.

Cilic will be a solid top 20.

I want to see match between 2 of these guys

Conveniently you can do that (http://www.justin.tv/whiscacho) right now.

yeah. But Del Potro has that won pretty much. Gulbis vs Cilic would be a cracker.

He has that won only because Nishikori is very tired.
From this group of young "guns":p Del Potro got the best draw and that's why he is the one who is having most success.

Delpo won 4 titles in a row, rested one week and now he's playing in the US open. Don't you think that he could be more tired.........?

I;m surprised Del Po is still going out there, must be utterly exhausted.

Could be, but he is more used to playing consistently at higher level and I don't think he has to play at his best now.
Kei had that long match against Ferrer where he gave his all to win.

Del Potro probably will become number 1 in tennis.
Gulbis will make a top 3 ranking.
Cilic and Querrey steady top 10.
And Nishikori will finish in the top 20 at best IMO :).

Gulbis no doubt.

Hmmm longterm I would count Kei,JMDP and Cilic to do the best over the years.

I'd go with Del Potro. This kid is hot! He just won 4 tournaments prior to the USO.

Del Potro finally put everything together and look for a move into Top Ranking

Gulbis would be another guy

Also Sam and Cilic both are great young talents

But In my oponion, who knows who will have the best career.
