I voted for Nishikori.

Goffin is cute but I'm not really convinced he can be a consistent player.

We can already exclude B.Paire.
Grand Slams are not for french male players.

They'll have to do more to deserve being called "Young guns". "Young crossbows" would be more fitting at the moment. One can only hope they will be able to expand their arsenal in the future.

Harrison is hard-working but has limited potential.
Raonic thinks he's a future Great but will struggle to be a top 5 player.

Neither deserve the hype they get.
That's it for North America.

Nishikori would've the biggest impact and would open the Asian market.

Too early to tell... I haven't seen in any of them what I saw in Novak in 2005: a burning fire of desire in his eyes...mesmerising, even then.

Maybe the next slam winner is still playing juniors...

Default Re: Which young gun will win the most slams?

1. Goffin- he's mentally tough, he has a strong and clever game. He has a nice attitude and looks ready to improve.
2. Nishikori- fast, aggressive yet defensive style, is a fighter. But struggles to make a breakthrough. Will have to work on technique.
3. Raonic- Has big serve and composure. But these days you need fitness + variety also.
4. Dimitrov- is brimming with talent but his game is not very efficient.
5. Kuznetsov- haven't seen much of him, but he has bigger weapons than Harrison, Tomic
6. Paire- He is talented but is a clown.
7. Tomic- Talented, but lacks passion
8. He works hard, but other than that, is a pusher with a bad temper.

I think only Goffin, Nishikori will win slams.

goffin looks promising... as does dimitrov. one of them should win a slam.

milos might sneak into the latter rounds with his serve.... but i really cantt see any of them winning a slam for many years.

btw we forgot klizan, good chance on clay.

Default Re: Which young gun will win the most slams?

Despite his current mental mess, I would rather bet on Tomic : I feel he has more potential (including mental one) and he's also younger than the others.

Then Raonic.

Dimitrov is my favorite one and has the most complete technique but seems to lacks too much in the footwork, return, physique and mental.

Raonic and Nishikori will win slams. Rest of the mugs lack the game and talent to even crack the top 10.

anyway, there's still a gradual era after Fedal, which is Nole - Murray, then Nole - Murray - Delpo, and then Delpo - Murray. Only after those stages will a youngster be able to win a slam.

98-03 was considered a weak era too but that was a lot of fun to watch imo,so if we have to suffer with tomic at number 1 and only winning probley a slam every 2 years im all for it

it's weird after all of the dissapointments from him, but I really have a weird feeling that in 5 years Grigor Dimitrov will be the man to beat. at moments even this season, which has been rather poor, he has looked like he has extraordinary potential. just last week against Gasquet

something about his game, his belief in shots, his risk taking. matures a little I think he will win a bunch of slams
