He is ranked #3. Will be #2 tomorrow, but as of today Murray is 2nd best.

It's not really hard to see that Nadal and Djokovic are the two best players in the world.

Has nothing to do with being the better player. Just that he grabbed more points over the past 12 months. Federer's level of play is nowhere near Nadal's.

The rankings lie again, this time caused by Nadal's injury absence.

Rankings don't lie, they tell us what they are supposed to. They tell us that over the last 12 months Djokovic has clearly had the best results, Federer and Murray are almost tied for 2nd, Ferrer is 4th and Nadal 5th. Of course, if Nadal had got his way and a two-year ranking had been in place then he'd be clearly ahead of Ferrer in 4th. As it is, though, he'll have to wait to get there.

Nadal has had the best results the past two months, but as far as I know noone has seriously suggested a two-month world ranking. Let's see if he can sustain it for a bit longer before we declare him underranked.

Ladies and gentlemen, we found the first person alive who thinks Ferrer is a better player than Nadal right now. Congratulations.

You are actually quite adept with the English language when you want to, a shame you don't want to more often.

Don't remind me of the 2-year ranking, please. That is the most stupid stupidest stupid thing of everything stupidly stupid. If that somehow gets accepted I'll probably stop watching tennis.

Look, I knew you are very, very focussed on numbers in tennis and don't use anything else than that to reason with people or predict results (probably the reason why I'm absolutely killing you with the ATP Draw Challenge, but that's another matter). I prefer to use my eyes and judge a player on level of play, quality of opposition and other factors.

Nadal only played half of the season, misses two slams in his rankings and was injured in the third, and still he's almost tied in points with Ferrer and not that far behind Murray/Federer. When he plays, he is just way better than those guys.

With your history of predicting stuff, you might want to get off MTF entirely.

Lol. The real top 4 looks like this:

1. Djokovic
2. Murray
3,Federer
4.Nadal

What has Nadal done since his return to prove he is in the top 2?

At a push he is maybe above Federer, but above Murray?

Lol no.
