Ok. Thanks for the info. I ve seen Papa play and he s a very able player but a bit too one dimensional. I still pick him to win. Boca has put a lot of hopes on that kid and I think he has to come through. Although it could backfire and if the usual boca pressure figures into this, it could prevent Spencer from swinging freely.

I saw bits and pieces of his matches, have not yet seen a whole match. He seemed aggressive from what I saw and I like aggressive players . So out of the juniors that you have seen, who do you like?

I ll comment on US juniors first. There are many that i thought have an upside, however, with juniors everything changes every 3-6 months so much that it s almost impossible to have any sort of a finalized prediction. I do think that there are things and attributes in the game of several us juniors that will translate well in the future, provided they will stick with tennis and work hard to get to the next level. If you are interested in a more detailed answer with naming players and their strengths, I could do that as well.

I would love to hear the details. I don't have a lot of opportunities to watch the juniors since I live far away from the actions. I've seen them mostly on youtube videos.

I ll throw a few names of the non us juniors that will be the guys to watch over next 4-5 years and I think a few of them could break the topn100. Lucas Pouille, Kyle Edmund, Laurent Lokoli, Luke Saville, Alcaraz Ivora, Quinzi, Pedro Cachin, Mathias Bourque, Kokkinakis, Christian Garin to name a few.

YouTube videos are few and are normally not the best representations of the player s abilities, unless they are extensive. I imagined that you have first hand experiences with us players, at least, from some of your comments. Are you telling me that you derive at most of your conclusions just by following the player s stats and a few tube videos?

Most of the time , but I have seen some of them on livestream and horrible webcams and I read a lot about them online. I agree that youtube videos are probably not the best way to judge players and for the most part I have kept that in mind.

Interesting read about Nishioka if anyone is interested: Catching up with Yoshihito Nishioka

Quote:
On playing alongside the pros at IMG Academy…

“If I practiced in Japan, I can’t play against the big, huge players with the big forehand. You just can’t practice that at home. In Japan, the players are smaller, there are some big players, but not many. But here, everybody has a big forehand and a big serve. So it’s good for me in practice. The [Athletic and Personal Development], too, because it has a big gym with everything I need. So it’s good for me on- and off-the-court.”

He is now 650 ATP. Not bad for a small 17 year old. He played us open last year (actually beat Corinteli in three tight sets) and this year semis of us open. Quick lefty with very quick and able hands

I hope he can continue his rivalry with Quinzi to the pro

Quinzi is a more promising young player. Bigger stronger. more aggressive and overall a better player. Now they will go toe to toe but in the next couple of years Quinzi will leave Nishioka behind.
