at MTF's raonic fanboyism. I like the guy but he is only a serve bot. Groundstrokes are not even that good, only if he sets them up with a huge serve. No variety at all. MTF = idiots

Fluky, lol. No point in arguing until Raonic beats a half-way decent player, and no, Tipsy or Almagro do not count.

Raonic isn't that good,still need to improve much more.He lost to a 31 year old Hewitt at AO.He can beat weaker players easily and had some successes in small tournaments,but it doesn't mean much.

30 years old is getting older. He's way off his best level ..... different compare where he was in last year.

Isner is way better than Fish in today

Milos Raonic is very young and do have a chance to be Top 10 soon

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Re: Who is the best North American player right now?

a tiebreak between isner and roanic decides it

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Re: Who is the best North American player right now?

I hope Raonic and Isner meet in the final to really determine this. Right now, I slightly pick Isner due to beating the biggest name and having the higher ranking (yes I know technically it'd be Fish but that's not going to last if he plays the way he has so far in 2012).

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.
