i think raonic will make his mark in 2012. what is his rank right now? is it #35?

he could sneak into top 20 if he can do well at some of the masters events.

Stebe or maybe even James Duckworth if he picks things up quickly. He showed real talent in Brisbane, I think (maybe it was Auckland?).

I'm not entirely sure who would be considered a "newcomer". My pick is that the Canadians will keep that title two years in a row with Vasek Pospisil.

ETA: looking at that list... Fabrice Santoro was newcomer of the year in 1990? Wow!

Hm. Fed, Djoker and Murray were never newcomers of their respective breakthrough years.

My guess would be whoever rapidly rose out of nowhere, like Milos did last year.

Let's see.. Marti is beginning to impress. Pospisil should be rising this year but has struggled of late. Then there's Del Bonis, Elias, Goffin and a whole bunch of other 21 year olds.

Stebe

I don't think anyone Maybe Dimitrov and Harrison can finally start winning, but they are not newcomers.
