Depends on his competition. When the big three are all retired I don't see a lot of guys to threaten for dominance.

So true. Anyways despite it looking reasonably bleak, I still look forward to this "new era" in a way. Raonic will only get better from here, so time will tell.

if he improves his movement and adds more percentage on his forehand, yes

he would certainly have a slam already if he played 20 years ago

huge mental game, Raonic his mature beyond his years. big serve, good off the baseline, improving movement which will only get better as he fills out his physical state. his speed will never be amazing but great slam winners in the past got past that.

you are delusional if you think he will not win ONE slam at some point. the younger generations are horrible, that alone will enable him to. who do you expect to stop him? do you really think the likes of Tomic will have the will and determination in a grand slam final to beat Raonic? please

If the courts speed up he'll win multi slams,but the current situation is negative.
