  • The future of American Men's Tennis

    Finally, some hope on the horizon. For those who don't follow tennis, the Orange Bowl is the big year end Junior's tournament for U-18 kids. Alumni winners include Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal. This year, 2 FIFTEEN year old Americans made the finals. A fifteen year old had never even made the finals before.

    Stefan Kozlov, whom I've mentioned before and Francis Tiafoe. Tiafoe won in a closely contested 3 sets. I think both of these kids could end up being top 10 players when they get older. Which will be really needed for the American men's game.

    Francis Tiafoe not Tiore. His brother Franklin plays as well and apparently cusses up a storm. So he plays like I would. Stefan Kozlov is going to represent the USA? He's not going to switch to represent say Macedonia? What about Michael Mmoh, Grant? He made the quarterfinals.

    Still I prefer when someone plays Tennis like Fabrice Santoro

          Tiafoe was born in the U.S.

          Sampras was as Greek as Kozlov is Macedonian with the exception of where they were born. Slim to none chance he plays for Macedonia.

          I haven't seen any of Mmoh.

                          Not from the University, the town/College Park Tennis program. http://www.jtcc.org

                          Most of the good players from there probably go to UVA.

                              Kozlov, still only 16 made the finals of a challenger event in Sacramento last week. He beat multiple top 200 players and the 99th ranked player in the world.

                              Sam Querrey(former top 20 in the world player) beat him in the finals 6-4 6-3. Querrey on the bandwagon, saying he thinks Kozlov has top 10 talent.

                              Another guy I didn't mention in this thread is Jared Donaldson, who is 17 and has been pro for about a year now and got into the U.S. open this year. I don't think he has top 10 talent like the other 2, but could be a top 30 guy.

                              I still think Tiafoe is the most talented of the 3, but he's struggled with consistency this year.
