Re: Unofficial Age Group Live ATP Rankings [in Post #1]
The 1993 generation has never looked very good, esp. comparing to the very good 1992 generation, but it became even worse because its most promising players have been hampered by injuries :
- Jason Kubler (Aus) was the most promising one but has recurring knee-problems, mostly has to play on clay ;
- Tiago Fernandes (Bras) was maybe the second most promising one but was very disappointing in last two years apparently because of back problems ;
- Carlos Boluda-Purkiss (Esp) used to be the most promising one when he was very young (won "Petits As" twice) but has been out of Tour for very long (even longer than previous ones) because of injury
- even the Korean Jeong Suk-Yong, who was the first one with Kubler to really emerge in the rankings, had to stay out of Tour for very long.
it's quite worrying imo how many young players have big and long-term injury problems, it seems to me that they have more ones than the older ones (also Krajinovic, Carreno-Busta, even Stebe, Berankis ...).
