Raonic, Dimitrov, Harrison are the highest rated and ranked youngsters of their generation but Stebe, Paire, Pospisil, Berankis, Bedene, Goffin, Gianessi etc all impressed me to various levels in 2011 and I expect a few of these guys to rise to/solidify positions in the top 100.

It will be particularly interesting to see how Paire does this year, lot's of talent but absolutely nuts... it's going to be entertaining.

Has anyone watched much of Carreno-Busta? The highest ranked youngster that I've never seen play before.

as much as i trusted in beno to accomplish some big things watching him play couple of years back, im more and more beginning to believe that his mental part of the game will sideline him from it all

Berankis will surely return to the top 75 if injury free and I would think also the top 50.

Pospisil has a lovely game and should comfortably join the top 100 next year.

Goffin though is an interesting one, I've seen him play a few times and really like his game but he just can't seem to put the results together. No idea if he'll break the top 100 but I do see a career best year coming next year for him.

Paire is a great player, somehow similar to F. Mayer, he has nearly all the shots, and if he is on fire he could cause some damage, and do a great performance at a weak 250/500. Raonic has finished #31 in 2011, without having played 2 months, and missing tourneys that he could have caused dammage like L.A/Atlanta/Washington/Montreal/Cincy/USO..., i think that he could finish Top-20 easily on 2012. I don't expect much from Harrison, and i think It would be nice for Grisho to end in the Top-50 on 2012[i don't see many future on the Bulgarian]. Berankis if injury-free will end around #60 at least. I expect more from Stebe and Bedene than from Goffin & Gianessi.

Stebe should continue to rise. Peaking at 30 or so in his career. Del bonis will return along with bagnis.

Had forgot to mention DelBo

Was impressive in stuttgart, but results elsewhere really unremarkable. Not quite sure why he has failed to progress ranking wise in the last 18 months

Busta is a player who has some vision in his game; he was successful in challengers because the circuit is full of going-nowhere limited skill grinders, while the Spaniard can serve, can look where he sends the ball, by occassion can go to the net. Smart baseliner is what I would call him.
The matches he loses is due to his inconsistency and UEs.

Not sure how impressively this game would look against higher level guys who can reply with even more cunning ways, but he's a real talent to develop IMO. Maybe 2nd Ferrer one day :)
