Men's Tennis: 5 Players Who Might Be the Next Big Thing

We are fortunate enough today, here and now, to be watching some of the best quality tennis that has ever been played.

With all respect, as much respect that can be given to the older generations of men's tennis and world No. 1's, it feels like the present is just on another level.

Sampras dominated, then Federer came and shattered the record books, then he was overtaken by the King of clay, Nadal, and now he has been succeeded by the nearly unbeatable Djokovic. The amount of players that have cycled in and out has been pretty remarkable.

So it gets me wondering, who is in the next changing of the guard? Who will be the next young gun to step up and wow the crowd and etch his moment in tennis greatness?

These players, they may never be as great as the formerly mentioned, but it wouldn't surprise me if they go on to do great things. And who knows, maybe we will be talking about one of them in five years time like we talk about Nadal and Djokovic.
