There are a few names in mind but otherwise they haven't made the pro tour yet. Let me know if there are more than the poll choices

Tomic.
I'm a Harrison fan but really can't see anybody else than Tomic at the moment. Dimitrov is talented but doesn't have the quality shots of Tomic on both sides, Raonic neither. Ryan is a nervous wreck.

Tomic will be a multiple grand slam champion once Nadolerer era comes to a definite end.

Raonic is the only one with a brain and a consistent game, he could possibly pull off a Del Potro type performance at Wimbledon or the USO if his serve is on fire, he gets a kind draw, and the top players mug out. Other guys are just mugs.

Raonic got potential for it. He got the serve at least and fairly big groundstrokes. I do think his style could make him a bit injury prone. Hope he holds up. The others? Too early to tell but not gonna say never. The field will look all different in a few years

Hopefully Harrison, but he has a LONG way to go yet.

Surprised at the absence of incensed Dimitrov fans in this thread, demanding for him to be included in the poll.

Sock already won a grand slam by the way. ;)

Chase Visa

Tomic easily shown the most I think. Raonic's serve makes him a threat but it's yet to be known whether he's a Sampras or a Karlovic. Harrison looks like a mental midget, Sock looks OK but not really Slam-winning material.

But who knows? Grigor might start acheiving, or there could be a complete wildcard.

That's Mini-Monfils :p From what little I've seen of him, he seems to be more aggressive that Monfils which is good and has shown promise. Then again I haven't seen him at all since the French Open and no one's talking about him so who knows :(

Tomic.

Rodre Fegassi
10-14-2011, 08:11 PM
I don't think anyone born in the 90s will win a slam.

The big 3 could potentially dominate all the slams well into their 30's and early 40's. Actually, I think only when they've all physically died will anyone else win a slam, but tennis might not exist by then anyway.

Call me short-sighted but I genuinely can't see anyone not named Federer, Djokovic or Nadal winning a slam. Ever.

misty1
10-14-2011, 08:25 PM
of all of them tomic is the only one i think will ever win any

Sham Kay
10-14-2011, 09:49 PM
Raonic, closely followed by Tomic. Tomic will be the most successful in GS's I think.

Sham Kay

Yeah, maybe the entire '90s decade generation will be skipped over and none will win a grand slam somehow. We'd better start looking at 9 and 10 year olds in the '00 generation.

misty1
10-15-2011, 12:45 AM
i think raonic is going to have an isner or karlovic like career

he'll come close to top 10, make some deep runs at slams and be a real pain in the ass to handle when he's playing well. But in the end there's going to always be a handful of players that will know how to handle him and stop him

Topspindoctor
10-15-2011, 12:46 AM

10-15-2011, 12:49 AM

misty1
10-15-2011, 12:54 AM
we can say none of them are going to win a slam. While it is true that while djokovic, murray, del potro and even federer and nadal are still around thats more than likely true there will be a time when these guys leave or start to decline.

so who is going to be left to win slams? these guys..unless some new crop of youngsters comes up in the next 4 or so years

Henry Chinaski

Facundo Bagnis, Roland Garros 2013. Book it.

Raonic= Too slow, base rallies are not great either.

Harrison= no power in his shots; which means he won't win; pushes too much.

Sock= Not that special. No better than Ryan.

Now as for Tomic. He's had an outstanding resume as a junior. He's capable of delivering heavy forehands like many of the tall players. He's able to slice. He has a strong serve. His two handed backhand is fair, but needs more work on it. Out of all these guys, he's got the best shot. And I do expect him to win a slam.

None. The Nadal/Djoko/Murray/Gasquet/Tsonga/Berdych/Delpo generation will crush the 90's boys until 2019/2020 and then the 2000's generation will oust the unlucky 90's boys.

Gil&becker
10-15-2011, 09:57 PM
Frederico Silva, if not the first, since he's 16, one of the certain winners!

Borna Coric.

only turned pro last year and already close to the top 100
so hes my pick :)

most of those guys have what 4-5 years left if that by than most will be 24-25 and just hitting there prime

Milos could. And in doing so he'll break the record for longest legs of a GS champ.

Tomic from this list.

lol.

When was the last time a whole decade failed to win ONE slam?

Also, that generation won't win slams forever. Unless Murray steps up and Delpo gets over injuries, I see the first 90's winner winning around 2014/2015.

At this moment we don't know when will players born in 1991. or 1992. win first ATP title.. not to mantion Majors. Not sure that's possible in 3 seasons

James Duckworth is probably better then Ben :D

Mitchell and Duckwort are doing some great job this year... great tennis nation will soon be on the rise again with Tomic, Mitchell, Kubler, Duckworth and Blake Mott

We have always had the juniors but the transition part is what catches them. There are even more juniors there such as Jay Andrijic and Luke Saville but unfortunately Australian Tennis is experiencing a mug era for Tennis Administrators. Some positive steps have been made recently that might get a few more guys into the top 100 but unfortunately there are still some big issues when it comes to player development. Having a wealth of top young players is quite a common scenario for Australia.

I don't know, it's tough to imagine what will happen when Fed, Rafa, followed by Djoker and Muzza retire. It will be so "empty"...let's enjoy them while we have them.

Tomic lost to freaking Cilic 6-1 6-0 6-2 this year. Being able to do that, Tomic surely will never be even a top10 player unless he improves drameticaly :o

I think my son (if I ever get one) will win some slams between 2030 and 2045.
He will probably beat Federer junior in one of the finals, leaving his parents Roger and Mirka in flood of tears. :bigcry:

Mateja's kid for the CYGS 2035! :rocker2:

Don't think so much about his chances to beat Fed junior though - she'll (x 2) most probably be playing in the WTA. :p

How's Daniel Guccione developing?

We need a worthy successor in case The Gooch chooses to retire and tend to his Tennis Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

At the moment young Daniel has shown promising signs that he has inherited alot of The Gooch's ability to tank matches but is struggling to get that 6-7 6-7 result. He seems to be stuck at the 3-6 4-6 stage. He showed a few promising signs earlier on this year when he got the elusive 7-6 sets in a couple of matches but it seems as though his development has regressed back to the 3-6 4-6 level. He is a work in progress. He still shows signs of immaturity as well like the time he dished out a bagel to Timothy Stephens.
