Tomic has top 10 groundstrokes in my opinion (although most of the people disagree with this statement) and he has a touch and tennis IQ what you cannot teach and what Raonis doesn't have. Tomic's serve is big enough, needs to be a bit more consistent though. Raonis is faster than him at this point but it is just matter of time when Tomic is going to be faster.
Tomis troubled top 4 except Murray, but I bet he would trouble Murray a lot in a best of 5 match. I'm not his fan, I just think he is better than Raonic.
I agree, actually. Tomic has already had competitive best-of-5 matches against Djoker & Fed & on grass especially I think he could take one of the big 4 down.
