5 Under-20 Tennis Players That Could Become Grand Slam Champions

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We are living in the golden era of tennis with Novak Djoković, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer dominating the ATP tour. Young talents like Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas are lurking, but it doesn’t like they have what it takes yet.

What about the youngest generation, and players who still haven’t turned 20? Let’s take a look at some of them that could become future Grand Slam champions, and find their place in the tennis history!

And remember, if you find a player you love, why wouldn’t you bet on his upcoming matches? First, check out Efirbet to read the most popular bookmaker reviews at the moment, and discover the best odds and bonuses for tennis betting.

1. Felix Auger Aliassime

Felix Auger-Alliasime is the most successful U20 player at the moment, and it is only a matter of time when he will enter the top 20 rankings. He already has nine wins at ATP Masters tournaments, as well as three competition finals. Unfortunately, Aliassime is still waiting on his first professional tennis title.

The player born in Montreal, Canada, is among those touted to compete for the number one spot once the Big Three retires. It is interesting to note that he was born on the same day as Roger Federer, can that be the sign that he is the next-gen tennis star we need?

2. Miomir Kecmanović

If Alliassime is the next Federer, this guy could be the next Djoković. Kecmanović is the second youngest player in the top 100 rankings at the moment. He participated in Australian Open and Roland Garros and even defeated Denis Kudla in Paris.

Kecmanović was born in Belgrade in 1999, and his both parents are doctors. Despite that, he decided to pursue a sports career and started playing tennis when he was only six years old. It is interesting to note that Kecmanović’s nickname is Mischa, which is something he has in common with Mischa Zverev.

3. Alexei Popyrin

Alexei Popyrin was born in Australia, but both of his parents are Russian. During his life, he added Spain to the mixture. That is where Popyrin moved in 2010, and he still spends a lot of time there.

Popyrin has three victories at Grand Slam tournaments as he reached the third round of Australian Open and the second round of Roland Garros this year. He is incredibly tall, which makes the serve his biggest asset.

4. Rudolf Molleker

Alexander Zverev might be the most popular and successful German tennis player at the moment, but that could all change thanks to Rudolf Molleker.

The Ukrainian-born player still needs to get a win at Grand Slam tournaments, but two appearances are also a great success for a guy who is only 19 years old. Molleker loves US sports, such as the NBA, as well as Hollywood movies and TV shows, and musicians like Drake.

5. Jannik Sinner

We saved the youngest one for last. Although the name wouldn’t suggest that Jannik Sinner comes from Italy. He was a great skier, too, but decided for a professional tennis career when he was 13 years old. Today, Sinner is still a teenager that hasn’t turned 18 yet, but he already has one victory at ATP Masters 1000 tournaments.

It won’t be a long time before he gets the chance to play in Grand Slams like his idol Roger Federer, but will he be able to win at least one?

America’s Largest Amateur League Shines in Baseball’s “Lost Season”

2020 will forever be remembered as baseball’s lost season. The sport was shattered due to the COVID-19 pandemic virus outbreak. Baseball fans were out of luck this summer as they were entirely restricted from attending any professional or semi-pro live games. Watching on television or live stream wasn’t much better. Most of the MLB season was cancelled including the pre-season, the much anticipated Iowa Field of Dreams game, Puerto Rico series, London Series and All...

IPL: Mumbai Indians Lose Season Opener

Mumbai Indians lost an Indian Premier League (IPL) opener for the 8th successive year following a 5-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings. Having lost the first game of the season in the last 7 years, Mumbai might have thought this was their time, as they were on a 5-game winning run against CSK. However, ex Mumbai Indians player Ambati Rayudu and South African superstars Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi ensured that it didn’t...

When Did Formula One Begin?

If you ask virtually anyone the world over a simple question – “What is Formula One” they will probably get the answer correct.  It’s a car race!  Even though that might be a very simple reply (a better answer would be it’s the highest class of international single-seater auto-racing!) there is another question that will probably stump them.  That question is “When did Formula One begin?”. In order to answer the question properly we need...

Stanley Cup Finals: Tampa Bay Lightning vs Dallas Stars

The Cleveland Browns Are Looking Up

The Cleveland Browns have a team that had a ton of questions this year. They came into the game against the Bengals unsure of how they were going to get their offense going. While the Bengals aren't at all a good defense, it's still hard to play those divisional games and win. The AFC North is known for brutally cold weather that makes it nearly impossible to stay sharp, yet they were sharp offensively....

The Case For Rocky Marciano

You wouldn't think, not even for a second, that you would have to defend a world champion boxer who retired with an unblemished record of 49-0 (43 KO's), but if it's Rocky Marciano we're talking about then yep, he needs to be defended. It's ridiculous, but true. Marciano seems to have as many naysayers as he does fans. "He was too small", "He never fought anybody in their prime", "He'd get killed today"; etc....
