Raonic, closely followed by Tomic. Tomic will be the most successful in GS's I think.

None of the above! I have yet to here of any i think can win 1!
Yeah, maybe the entire '90s decade generation will be skipped over and none will win a grand slam somehow. We'd better start looking at 9 and 10 year olds in the '00 generation.

i think raonic is going to have an isner or karlovic like career

he'll come close to top 10, make some deep runs at slams and be a real pain in the ass to handle when he's playing well. But in the end there's going to always be a handful of players that will know how to handle him and stop him

we can say none of them are going to win a slam. While it is true that while djokovic, murray, del potro and even federer and nadal are still around thats more than likely true there will be a time when these guys leave or start to decline.

so who is going to be left to win slams? these guys..unless some new crop of youngsters comes up in the next 4 or so years

Raonic= Too slow, base rallies are not great either.

Harrison= no power in his shots; which means he won't win; pushes too much.

Sock= Not that special. No better than Ryan.

Now as for Tomic. He's had an outstanding resume as a junior. He's capable of delivering heavy forehands like many of the tall players. He's able to slice. He has a strong serve. His two handed backhand is fair, but needs more work on it. Out of all these guys, he's got the best shot. And I do expect him to win a slam.

None. The Nadal/Djoko/Murray/Gasquet/Tsonga/Berdych/Delpo generation will crush the 90's boys until 2019/2020 and then the 2000's generation will oust the unlucky 90's boys.
