Don't know why he's above Monfils & Dolgo, but fair enough he's above Roddick, Isner, & Fish. Superficially the odds on the youngsters seem short, but that's because the breakthrough triumph of a youngster against the odds is a fairly common story in tennis (Borg, Wilander, Becker, Sampras, Del Potro) - at least as common as the consolation victory of the fading veteran.
