Fair enough. I don't think any of them are much more than top 100 types max though. Certainly not talented enough to make Aussies dominant down the line. I don't think it will be as good as the late 90's, with 3 players around top 10-15, and others within the top 100.

I think the female side looks more promising over the next 5-7 years. Barty as well as some of the 14 and unders look really good.

He is a teenager. They try things out at that age.

this kok is developing some serious balls, but too deflated in the end.

I watched the match last night. Inspite of it was not one of Johnson's best matches (he wasted several chances and even serving for the match at 5-4 in the 3rd set he looked very nervous and frustrated he was unable to find a way to beat Kokkinakis). And the teenager Australian played a fantastic match. I was kind more impressed with his determination, the strategies he set along the match and his ability to keep his cold feet to close that 2nd set and keep on the match for almost 4 hours. He is still really young and has a long way yet but definitely seems to have a big potential. Definitely a name to write down to follow him in the future.

Was intrigued by him as a fill-in at Hopman Cup. Nice to see him put up such a fight.

Ha Ha must be a cultural difference!

That hairstyle is actually quite popular and "fashionable" for young men in Australia right now!
