You don't mean statistics, you mean facts. And the facts don't support what you're saying at all. If he's winning more matches on the whole, winning more in M1000s, winning more in slams, and raising his ranking every season, he's an improving player.
He may not be improving up to your standards (you apparently think he should be on the same path as some of the greatest of all time (Federer/Nadal/Djokovic) judging by a recent post), but he's improving quite significantly nonetheless. His results and his play suggest as much. Your trolling argument has absolutely nothing to stand on.
Milos reached R4 of the Aussie Open in 2011 and has not kicked on at all. He is of no threat to any of the major players be it at a Masters event or a Slam.
There are only really three guys on tour with any real potential to beat one of the Big 4 in a slam (Del Potro, Berdych, and Tsonga) and they all do it very rarely indeed. The fact that Milos isn't yet among that group in his 2nd full year on tour does not mean that his game isn't improving. It just means he hasn't reached the level of those three players yet, which will be a difficult task, but one that he can absolutely manage if he keeps improving at this rate.
