With the likes of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murphy, The Williams sisters, Sharapova and Pliskova the next dominant name in tennis seems to be a lifetime away as this has been ongoing for over a decade. However true this might be, there are still a couple youngsters that can be looked at as possible persons that can vie for this title, as these giants of the courts enter their twilight years on the professional tennis circuit. The Rising Stars In Tennis On the men’s side, keep an eye out for Borna Coric, the 20 years old Croatian. He has impressive wins over Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal. After an injury to his knee in the US Open and losing out of the majority of 2016, he is healthy and ready for the courts once again. Also to be in the conversation is Ryan Harrison, after a successful junior career, he started to trail off a bit and only reach a career high ranking of 43 in the world, but he has improved his form and work ethic and has started 2017 with great promise. There are also others that are fast establishing themselves like Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev and Karen Khanchanov. Cici Bellis, on the female end, is 17 years old and making a name for herself. Now fully realizing her potential and with a current world ranking at 56, she is well on her way to causing surprising upsets in the top 50 rankings. Coco Vandeweghe the power hitter from America is on the verge of bursting into the top 20 rankings once she remains consistent and her good days, far outnumber her bad. The next generation shows great promise for the future of tennis and any of these can step out and stand above the rest as the next dominant name in tennis, male or female.
