After reaching a career high of #4 in the world earlier this year and securing a high profile win over rafa nadal, milos has lost the plot. It is painfully obvious his return has not improved and he still has yet to string together more than 4 wins in a row this season. As painful as it for me to say, raonic is losing relevance. I could easily see him stumbling down the rankings for the next year or two and having an isner type of career.

Well he has been injured, so the last couple of months haven't really reflected things. Still I think some nice draws helped him out last year and he will find his place between 7-12 in the rankings for the next few years.

I disagree.

I dislike watching Raonic a lot, but I have to say that I think he has improved a hell of a lot over the last few years and when completely fit he will stay in the subtop (Between #4 and #10 in the rankings) for quite some time.

His return is waaay better than Isner's is, even though I prefer watching Isner.

I doubt he'll drop out of the top 12, unless he stays injured for a very long time. He's boring to watch, but very consistent. He loses very few matches to lower ranked players.

This too. Much like Berdych and Ferrer back in the good old days, they were very secure bets most of the time. Easy money, especially against top players.

His generation is useless, Federer and Nadal will probably retire next year and the real young guns aren't ready for primetime just yet.

Milos will be a top 5 player for the next 2-3 years if his body hold up.

Without serious injuries he will be #5-10 for a few years but definitely not higher.
His game is too limited and ROS is beyond awful

He will be back. He just played when he was injured and now is playing the price.

In fairness, Chairman Rao has been injured recently. He should have had the operation on his foot long before he did though - and at a more suitable time in the year.

Poor planning.

Healthy Raonic is easy 5-8 in rankings.

When you have a foot injury that requires significant surgery, it causes a decline in the rankings. Shocker there, I know.

If/when he gets back to full health in the next year, he should be right back where he was before he got hurt (#4-#6).

What? The guy is 24 years old chill with the kneejerks OP. The guy has atleast 5 good years in him.
And one question what do you mean by top?
Top can mean different for different players for some that's the number 1 spot for others top 4 and so on.
So according to you what is his top?
Top 5?
And either way no matter what the guy will be even in the top 3 at some point becuase the big 4 will decline. That is inevitably.
