Where would SAFIN rank amongst decade's greatest players?

I have him in my top 6 - behind Federer, Nadal, Hewitt, Agassi, Roddick.
Where would you put him?

Talent wise, he is head and shoulders above roddick, rafa and hewitt. maybe on par with federer. Not sure how you're ranking him though, as he obviously hasn't been as consistent as the players you put him behind. But he has certainly been more fun to watch

He was awesome when on Song. WHo would have defeated the likes of Neimenin,Blake,Roddick,Agassi at year 2004, when Roddick and Agassi were more or less on their peak in 5 gruelling setters.

One of the best matches i saw was when he took out Federer in 2005. He deserved Australian Open like no one ever did. Having Fallen to a chump Thomas Johansson in 2002?

One of the Best ever Talents. Thats why he is still so much talked amongst the fans.
