Young guns 2006

We had a lot of young guns ruling the tour this season (Monfils, Murray, Nadal, Gasquet, Djokovic, Wawrinka etc.). I wonder is there a player among the juniors or among the players that will play their 1st season next year, who can keep up with the results of the mentioned players. Who should it be?

Del Potro ? Korolev?

oh is it according to my signature ? ;)

I would be very happy if it worked out :yeah: Besides, I think the one who we should take a look at is Jeremy Chardy from France ;) Or let's see what will happen to Santiago Giraldo from Colombia. Right now it seems he doesn't have too much money to travel, but maybe it can change next year (he's still 17 as well). I am curious what about Ryan "The sweet thing" Sweeting, the USO boys' champion. He said he wanted to go to the college and didn't play any more events this year (I suppose he'll take a chance at Orange Bowl).

I also hope that for two older guys, but still young things - Michael Ryderstedt from Sweden (would be difficult, but I believe anyway... and somebody said supporting Chucho might be frustrating heh) and Teimuraz Gabashvili from Russia can have a breakthrough year.

Keep an eye on Ilja Bozoljac of Serbia. I'm curious to know what other people who have seen him think of him. He gets a bit mental on court, but he might crack the Top 100 in 2006 and get a little bit of attention along the way.

That bad?

He looked pretty good vs Nadal in the US Open

I would agree. I'm very fond of Sco, but I don't think he's Top 100 material yet. He has a lot of work to do developing his game and his consistency. His match against Nadal at the USO was quite exciting, but he's been kind of 'distracted' since then. It's too early to give up on him entirely, and 2006 will be very important for him, but I'm pretty sure he will need another USO WC next September.

Sco has potential, but I don't think he has the head to be a top player. Far too inconsistant and loopy.

Well, truly speaking I haven't seen a lot of juniors. I only can judge them by their results this year. You can check it on itftennis.com. But syrely there are some people here who saw many junior players

I hope Jeremy Chardy and Ryan Sweeting will go pro and have good years.

And Lukas Lacko, too.

There's a couple:

Evigyuen Korolev from Russia seems to be developing into a consistent player.
Gianluca Naso and Fabio Fognini of Italy are two youngsters that will probably make some impact during the clay court season.
Watch out for Juan Martin Del Potro once the South American clay court swing comes around.
Marin Cilic should be one to watch out for, he's got nice smooth groundstrokes.

To a lesser extent:
Phillip Simmonds is big server with a big forehand, he reached his first challenger final recently. Scoville is still pretty inconsistent, but he's beaten Jarkko Nieminen and nearly beat Tommy Robredo, but then how do you explain his 6-3 6-3 loss to Oudsema? Hopefully some of the other American youngsters like Scott Lipsky, Sam Querrey, Wayne Odesnik, Brendan Evans and Alex Kuznetsov make a breakthrough. Alex Kuznestov looked like he would follow in the footsteps of guys like Monfils and Baghdatis, but a car crash set him back.

Daniel has a very good potential and 2006 should be the year he start making some noise (al least that´s what I hope)

I just browsed through the results and I noticed that Cilic almost defeated a LEGEND in the Basel qualies

Del Potro is our greatest hope. And his best surface is hard court not clay, at least is what he say. Especially if we have in mind that he dream about to becoming number 1 in the world or win the USopen.

Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini.

Watch out for them during the clay season :)
