Among 'real' tennis fans, I'd say yes definitely. I don't hate the top 4 per se, just the ridiculous hype they get and the preferential treatment at the expense of everyone else. If they were able to remain a stable top 4 with a schedule comprised of diversified surface speeds and conditions, then they'd be worthy of the hype. There's hardly anything fawn worthy about being a better baseline grinder than everyone else.

Most sports fans are like 6yos though, they just bandwagon whoever is on top at the moment, they don't need quality tennis, just a superstar figure to vicariously live through.
