There are a few names in mind but otherwise they haven't made the pro tour yet. Let me know if there are more than the poll choices

Tomic.
I'm a Harrison fan but really can't see anybody else than Tomic at the moment. Dimitrov is talented but doesn't have the quality shots of Tomic on both sides, Raonic neither. Ryan is a nervous wreck.

Tomic will be a multiple grand slam champion once Nadolerer era comes to a definite end.

Raonic is the only one with a brain and a consistent game, he could possibly pull off a Del Potro type performance at Wimbledon or the USO if his serve is on fire, he gets a kind draw, and the top players mug out. Other guys are just mugs.

Raonic got potential for it. He got the serve at least and fairly big groundstrokes. I do think his style could make him a bit injury prone. Hope he holds up. The others? Too early to tell but not gonna say never. The field will look all different in a few years

Hopefully Harrison, but he has a LONG way to go yet.

Surprised at the absence of incensed Dimitrov fans in this thread, demanding for him to be included in the poll.

Sock already won a grand slam by the way. ;)

Tomic easily shown the most I think. Raonic's serve makes him a threat but it's yet to be known whether he's a Sampras or a Karlovic. Harrison looks like a mental midget, Sock looks OK but not really Slam-winning material.

But who knows? Grigor might start acheiving, or there could be a complete wildcard.

Isn't Gael born in the 80's?
That's Mini-Monfils :p From what little I've seen of him, he seems to be more aggressive that Monfils which is good and has shown promise. Then again I haven't seen him at all since the French Open and no one's talking about him so who knows :(

I don't think anyone born in the 90s will win a slam.

The big 3 could potentially dominate all the slams well into their 30's and early 40's. Actually, I think only when they've all physically died will anyone else win a slam, but tennis might not exist by then anyway.

Call me short-sighted but I genuinely can't see anyone not named Federer, Djokovic or Nadal winning a slam. Ever.
