Top ten sounds a bit optimistic
The guy hasn't been top-10 for three years. He's currently dropping out of the top-100. Even getting back to top-40 range would be a respectable achievement at this stage in his career.
In 2007 he would have been top-10 for sure but he played few tournaments.
If you look at his ranking points that year, it's clear he would have been top-10 if he had played all year.
And now he gets out of the top-100 only because he was injured last year.
A defeat in 5 sets against Gonzalez is not a shame when you come back from injury.
I think all the excitement about "Hewitt is finished" and this is Tomic's time" is crazy.
Hewitt is just 28 and Tomic is only 16 !!
