Zverev could find the #1 ranking falling into his lap if the Big 3 disappear, but that's looking increasingly unlikely and I don't think he's good enough to wrest it from them. I believe Tsitsipas will be a contender in 2020 - he has a mature game and a champion's mindset. Shapovalov has the highest ceiling of all the Next Gen, but he's a very rough diamond and even in the best case scenario he won't reach the top before 2021. All in all, 2021 looks like the safest bet.
