Ste­fanos Tsit­si­pas Age 20 Na­tion­al­ity Greek

World rank­ing 15 Grand-slam best Wim­ble­don 4R 2018 With his el­e­gant shot-mak­ing and im­pres­sive ath­leti­cism, he is one of the most ex­cit­ing play­ers to watch on the tour. His stun­ning run to the Rogers Cup fi­nal in Au­gust while still only a teenager un­der­lined his po­ten­tial. Alexan­der Zverev Age 21 Na­tion­al­ity Ger­man

World rank­ing 4 Grand-slam best French Open QF 2018 For so long tipped as a fu­ture world No1, he started to make good on his rep­u­ta­tion by win­ning last year’s sea­so­nend­ing ATP Fi­nals. Still yet to de­liver at the grand slams. Karen Khachanov Age 22 Na­tion­al­ity Rus­sian

World rank­ing 11 Grand-slam best Wim­ble­don 4R 2018 and French Open 4R 2017, 2018 A thun­der­ous serve and fore­hand mean he can blow any­one off the court when he is on song. One of many young Rus­sians to look out for. Borna Coric Age 22 Na­tion­al­ity Croa­t­ian

World rank­ing 12 Grand-slam best US Open 4R 2018 Made ma­jor strides last year and ended up one of the al­ter­nates for the ATP Fi­nals. Supremely fit and hard to break down from the base­line. Alex de Min­aur Age 19 Na­tion­al­ity Aus­tralian

World rank­ing 31 Grand-slam best Wim­ble­don 3R 2018 and US Open 3R 2018 Men­tored by Lley­ton He­witt, and cut from a sim­i­lar cloth, he is even quicker around the court than his fel­low Aus­tralian. De Min­aur is play­ing more ag­gres­sively rather than re­ly­ing on his phe­nom­e­nal de­fence.
