:zzz:

Both have been mediocre, at their age Olderer was scoring wins over Sampras and Nadal was sweeping clay courts. They still have a long way to go and need to cut down on arrogance if they want to succeed on the big stage. Neither player has impressed me to be honest.

Dimitrov could be the next Malisse.

Tomic, though Dimitrov's game is a gazillion miles superior to watch.

Your opinion on anything is completely and utterly invalid, so get back to your game of COD.

results obviously you have to go with Tomic because he did have a breakthrough this year and proved he can go toe to toe with big players and win. I mean he took a set off of in form Djokovic and no way could Dimitrov do that this year.

career wise still got to go with Dimitrov, but 2012 the odds have got to be with Tomic. If anything his results at next year's Wimbledon will probably make his 2012 better than Dimitrov's

Good question.

Tomic's variety could actually benefit him more over time, but he needs to considerably improve his consistency. There are matches that he shouldn't be losing/should be winning a lot more easily.

Dimitrov is a bit too clumsy for my liking, but he just needs to improve one or two things a little before he can take that next step. He has the power to bully his way through a lot of matches but, in particular, he needs to work on channelling that strength. In that respect, he is perhaps more likely to overtake Tomic in the short-term (the next year or so).

Tomic is improving in leaps and bounds, well they both are. Just don't see Dimi keeping up with Tomic 'hear?

Dimitrov has the most beautiful game to watch and he has real talent and athleticism to back it up. Once he fixes the mental side of his game, everything is going to click into place and I think he will rise up the rankings quite quickly.

I'm undecided about Tomic. He hasn't impressed me apart from Wimbledon and as much as I support the young guys and want them to succeed, I don't really like his style and the match against Cilic showed how much is missing from his game.

I think Dimitrov will have the better year in 2012.

Good points, I agree.

Dimitrov has the more beautiful game, face, smile, and abs. I'm rooting for him.
