i would go with Rafa.......but Marcos runs him very close in my opinion :)

NB:i only picked in the poll players who are under 22.

Nadal by a country mile. The other youngsters aren't in the same league as him yet. When you mention youngsters usually it is best to leave Nadal out, he is still a youngster but he isn't up and coming like the others. He has already come.

I can't really see how anyone can vote against him TBH. Easily #2, a GS and a GS final along with 5 titles, the clay streak, 2 AMS titles.

I didn't vote for Rafa because I think it's silly to include a 2-time GS champ in a poll like this. :shrug:

Baghdatis surely...MAybe he only had some results in the grand slams but that's what it's all about really.

The best? Nadal. But he hasn't shown the most progress.

I did vote Rafa but other than that I agree. The other young guns are in a bit of a competition/race to see who can reach potential first. Rafa isn't in this race and shouldn't be in this poll.

Same here. I didn't even notice he was on the list until I started reading the posts. I went to the player's name (Novak :) ) I wanted to vote for directly.
