American tennis is making some progress now:)... USA has now got a lot of young and promising tennis players, such as Querrey, Young, Isner, Levine, Harrison and so on. But who is going to be the best of them and reach Roddick's or at least Blake's results :cool: or maybe even become somebody like new Agassi:worship: or Samras:worship:??

What is worse,you think that is funny to write players like Sampras,Agassi when the guy ask about new upcoming american players! :retard:

Hard to tell because I haven't had the opportunity to watch any of them closely over an extended period of time.

And sometimes the hype over a player doesn't meet the reality.

Did watch Isner a bit - he has some potential, but I think that he'll have some problems in the long run.

I hope that Donald Young can do some damage....also saw him a bit during last year's US Open.

I was very excited to see young Ryan Harrison get his first ATP win. :yeah:

Looking forward to seeing more of Young and seeing Harrison at this year's US Open (if Harrison gets in). :)

I think it's pretty clearly Harrison at this point, he's had more success at 15 than a lot of these guys have in their careers, and they're all much older.

I'm hoping Tim can make it on the tour, he's a great guy and has a great baseline game. Unfortunately, he's rather small and that doesn't bode well for him on the tour. Still, I'm hopeful that he can one day reach the top 100. He continues improving each year. :yeah:

Sweeting has a HUGE game and a lot of potential, but he doesn't seem to be there yet mentally.

Where is all this success for Ryan Harrison? He's won one ATP match, but his circuit record is not consistent. He's young and it is far too early to hype him like this (MTF tongue in cheek bandwagoners not included).

I'll go with Donald Young and Michael McClune. I think DY is going to be a late bloomer, but he has all the tools to be a Top 50 player. Time for the Young family to cut ties to the USTA and get their own dedicated coach for DY. That might be the only way he will take his game up a notch or two.

Michael McClune is young, still has a lot to develop in his game but I think he's about the right size and he moves pretty well. This is his first full year on the circuit, but he seems to be progressing at a fairly steady rate (and he watches Heroes, so I have a soft spot for him).

I like Smyczek too, but his size will make it tough for him. I've about given up on Ryan Sweeting, but maybe he will be a late bloomer too. Sam could make the Top 50 at some point, same with Isner, but I doubt either will ever crack the Top 30. Would be nice to see Wayne crack the Top 50, but he is kind of small too and I don't know if his style of play will get him enough consistent results to move up that high.

It is too early to tell, just hope that this generation will not suffer from the pressure of comparing with the Sampras/Agassi generation.

As for me, at first I've seen playing only Querrey, Young and Isner of these guys... I think that everyone from this list can reach top 100 sometime, but now I`d tell my opinions about players.
Donald Young - he was no.1 junior, he`s already got some good wins in ATP and of course he`s improving every year!!! He can enter top 50 by the end of this year,
Jesse Levine - he isn't tall and he is not as powerful as Roddick for example but he`s making some progress, however he`s won only 2 matches in main draws of ATP tournaments so far...
Sam Querrey - he`s got a really great serve, not bad baseline game but his play at the net is really disapointing as well as his movement, don`t expect from him anything on clay but he could be top-20-level hardcourt game!!!
John Isner -very tall with a perfect serve, but don`t know what else can I say... I think he won`t play better than top 40 - top 50... he should improve a lot mentally.
Ryan Harrison is too young to talk about but has got the biggest potential of all!
I don`t know much about McClune, Smyzcek, Sweeting, Evans, Jenkins, but they are promising enough to be in top-100 next year!
