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?
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.
