actually Monfils, Nalbandian, Hewitt and Blake are at the moment very near from each other in the rankings, but everybody knows they're worth better than that.

Yes Monfils is younger but everybody knows he got there because of injury.

Besides, Monfils suffers from the stupid rule that Del Po had to suffer 2 years ago which is that a commitment player who hasn't been able to play any ATP500 tournament during a year because of injury has to suffer 4 zeropointers in his rankings. That's also the reason why he doesn't go to Indian Wells and probably to Miami either (for precisions see here : Indian Wells Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated March 6, 2013) )
