Isner- so have rocketed up the rankings with so little talent otherwise, it would would have to be lurch.

Isner, closely followed by Raonic. Horrendous players, but excellent servers.

Raonic surely? Though he was finally showing promise in break game before injury, it's gone now.
Isner has really improved his ground game, but seems to me his serve has actually gone downhill a bit... Same with Karlovic, but to a lesser degree on both counts

It's scary how much bounce Isner gets :unsure:

I remember he hit a woman on the stand because it bounced so high over the wall and she was in trouble...

I must say Raonic on his performance during all year.. of course when he was healthy.. Isner had fantastic US Open Series but definitely I can't forgot the first half of the year when his first problem was the serve. :eek:

Kevin Anderson all things considered. I could see him in top20 next year. Just need to iron out some stuff in his game but I see potential. Closely followed by Isner but he was at a higher level already and didn't move as much forward as Anderson

Raonic is a bit young yet and had that injury setback. He will have his time soon enough

Raonic for sure. Isner can actually rally and was very close to beating Nadull on freaking Paris dirt...

Isner, when you can take Rafa to five at RG of all places, you have to have one hell of a serve... just for that immense achievement he would get my vote

I think Lopez and Muller, even Ljubicic should be in poll if Anderson is. In term of serving they have been better this season, Anderson is actually not such great server- like he could be, he is going for high % FS in and also didn´t have so many aces and so on. Roddick also nothing special- actually if we compare this season to his last i don´t know how many, for sure this season was on serve really bad, even when he was hitting bombs - 220km/h no placement.... But that trio Karlovic, Isner, Raonic are simply one level above rest of the field. Simply when those guys are down 0-40 it feels when you are watching they are down only 1BP not 3xBP:D:D Just put 3x first serves in and job is done, even best returner can be on the other side if those guys hit bombs to the lines there is no deffense to that. Ivo had better serve seasons, so he didn´t win this, it is between Isner and Raonic, Isner took Rafa to 5th on clay with that new lighter balls and really was good whole season in rallies and on serve. Milos was great early in the season and now i expect from him indoor also to be outserving everyone. Actually i would love to see Isner-RAonic match.

You always have useful things to say unlike me! I applaud you.. however, could you consider using paragraphs? More people will actually read what you have to say then! The huge blocks of text are a little bit unsettling.

Thumbs up, keep up the great posts.
