Who will be world No.1 in the next few years?

Quote

Sorry about that but it was almost inevitable, particularly after the marathon match he played against Isner.  I'm glad though that he at least got it together for the 3rd set, even if he did lose the tiebreak.

Britain's Jack Draper lost the Boys' Singles final, but he too had a marathon semi-final where the 3rd set went to 19-17, becoming the longest SF match in Wimbledon junior history. 

Probably too much to hope that the LTA will learn something from this and bring back a tiebreak for the seniors as well as the juniors.

Personally I'd prefer Andy to win Wimbledon in 2020, if not next year!
 
Oh  shocking sorry I don't think I've looked at this thread for a few days  shocking  Oh yes Jack Draper did very well, I'd actually forgotten all about him  shocking  I do think they should have a tiebreak in all grand slam matches, that one at Wimbledon was ridiculous, it went on forever.
Could we write to the LTA and tell them what they should do?
Yes Wimbledon for Andy next year or 2020 would be great Smile

It was reported the other day that the AO organisers are considering bringing in a tiebreak for the 5th set, just like the USO, so I hope that they do and that Wimbledon and RG follow suit.

Tsitsipas; Shapovalov; Alex De Minaur; Cameron Norrie - the big four of the 2020s.

And possibly Alex Zverev making five.

Unless something untoward happens, then I can't see AZ not being in the top five particularly as he's already there.

Yes, fair point.

That said, I'm not 100% sure he will make no 1 and not get overtaken. I meant my top five picks for no 1 in the 2020s though didn't phrase it very well. Little tongue man

Kyle?  He's still to win a tournament as a singles' player.


Yes, fair point.

Fair enough.  Z will have to do an awful lot better in Slams though, but maybe Lendl can do for him what he did with Andy, although imo Andy was 99% there anyway, while Z isn't.

^ Well it could be Kyle - he might win some tournaments in the next few years.

It will be interesting to see just how transformative the next four years will be for the ones we've mentioned.

So who wins the next singles Olympic golds? Mens and womens?

Phenomenal match between Dom and Rafa.  Tennis of the highest quality throughout.  Just a bit unfortunate that Dom couldn't quite take the fifth set tiebreak.  Hit an overhead long when Rafa was 6-5 up, and that was that.  No surprise that the crowd gave him a standing ovation as he left the court because it was richly deserved. 

Dom has now been officially added to my list of future No.1s.

I'm adding Thiem to my list too ..........

@ Aileen, I thought you predicted Thiem a few weeks ago?  Not just recently and not because of his match yesterday with Rafa?

I said "possibly" in that post.  Now after the Nadal match I'm convinced.  He turned 26  three days ago.  His ranking as gone up to #8 (he reached a career high of #4 in November last year), so particularly given his prowess on clay, then I see no reason why not if he can build on Tuesday's success.  I wouldn't expect it for maybe a couple of years though.

^  Yes, sorry, you did say "possibly",  But now you're saying "definitely"? 
Your analysis is better than mine, I'm sticking with Kyle, Kyrgios, Alex De Minaur, Thiem and Alex Z.
But these are in the next few years, not in the next few months.
