I think the quality of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal (and Murray arguably) has allowed us all to forget just how average the rest are. As good as it is to have 3/4 brilliant players it's also somewhat depressing that you can pretty much guarantee the semi-finalists in all the slams long before they actually get there.

There's just so few capable of pushing them to their limit. How is that enjoyable?
He's currently almost even with Murray in their poll, so top 16 seems right, yes.

Raonic has 3 times "pushed Federer to his limit" this year and beaten Murray plus he has 3 other top 10 wins as well as pushing the world no.6 to a 23-25 FS and has captured 2 titles.....if that doesn't warrant his ranking and hype then surely you are delusional. I will give you Tomic(though 43rd isn't 'that' high) but you seem to have other ,personal, issues with Milos.

Err, yes, because people vote on polls on this forum for solely tennis reasons...
