Lots of youngsters around, one of them's bound to make it to World Number 1 some day!!!

I'm going Nadal. He's just too good on clay, and he's exceptional on other surfaces as well.

I think Djokovic: he's more of an all-rounder. He will be better than Nadal everywhere except clay, and with the clay Masters going to one per year, Rafa will struggle to keep his ranking points up.

Djokovic or Murray could well be the ones in time.First we need to see Murray fit most of the time if he going to have a chance.Till these to are 21 i dont think we have seen there best yet.Its from this age onwards that players make that big jump up,if there going to do it.For me its nexst year we will see if thay can make a move on Fed & Nadal.

Not too cocky, yet. He could get a big head if he's not careful. ||-|

Maybe because a lot of us have 'fed-goggles' on, as most of the board are fed-fans, so we're voting against Nadal. As for the others, none of them have yet shown consistency of the same level as Nadal and Djokovic.

I suppose. For Murray, he needs to stop getting injured.

Yep, that's his consistency issue, although it could relate to general fitness. For instance, in his 3 masters semi-finals, aainst Gasquet and Djokovic twice, he hasn't shown up in any of them, once tired, twice injured. For the others (Monfils, Gasquet, Berdych, Baghdatis) the problems are mental.
