Have to give the slight edge to Raonic right now, hope he and Isner meet in the Memphis final.

I'd say Isner has the slight edge serve-wise and Raonic is the better returner. Seeing as so many mtf-ers look down on people who can 'only' serve, I guess that means Milos is better. :-)

Fish is the highest ranked for a reason.

Pospisil is the best looking.

At the level Milos is playing at this year, he's better than all of them. He also has a winning record against Fish in his career.

It's more that they hate rallies and graceful movement.

I like Raonic playing style,but he's yet to have the stability,accuracy and consistent needed.He serves strongly but his 1st serve rate isn't high,the opponents can abuse his 2nd serve..That loss to the old man Hewitt in AO proved that.I think the best is still Mardy Fish,higher ranked player always have their stability.

It's not just that, though. We both know that Fish is in terrible form and that Milos is dominating, which is what the question is about.

Well, at this very moment- well in the last 2 or 3 weeks, Milos beat Istomin in a 250 final, and Isner beat Roger Federer on clay in Switzerland, so based on current form it has to be Isner.

You sure about that? Milos is 13-1 on the season, has won two tournaments this year and appears to be well on his way to a third.

Outside of the fluky Federer match where Roger was well below his usual form, Isner hasn't played nearly that well (and that includes his two matches this week).

Fish and Roddick have the passion, and constantly evoke my RAGE counters with their idiotic on court antics. Which has made a fan of me

Unfortunately they are old and declining

Raonic of course, now all he needs is to develop a pair of balls to push his career on with
