The answer in my opinion is yes, by absolute miles.

I think none of the others come close to him right now except maybe Stef.

The only worry is grass but to be honest Medvedev,Thiem and Zverev are not up to too much on grass either.

Luckily the atp stupidly have fuck all grass events.

What do MTF feel about this naughty claim??

I think Thiem clear 3 and Rublev 4/5 at the moment, pretty even with Stefanos .

Should be some excellent battles next year with Tsitsipas/Rublev/Shapovalov

With Thiem being a 60-100 player and Vasek being a TOP20 player anything is possible.
You should create an alternative ranking in an alternative world, bro.

Yes, his grunt puts him to top 3 in the world right now.

He lost in straights to Zverev, Medveded and Tsitsipas in the slams this year. He’s not better than them sorry
Truth is he'll always be too one-dimensional to be a consistent TOP5 player (he might be a TOP10 though). I can see him making a lot of R4-s/ QF-s and occasionally SF-s at slams but not better than that.

Basically this.. If roger comes healthy I have basically for next year

1 tier. Rafa, Nole and Roger
2 tier. Thiem stands alone
3 tier. Zverev , Tsitsipas and Maybe Medvedev.. but he seems to be slowly falling down of this tier
4 outside chances.. Wawrinka (if he fix his fitness), Sinner..but needs more matches and maturity

All the rest are a big fat no, excluding players at specific courts.. like Schwartzman grabbing a m1000 clay master 1000, etc.

He's had a very good year. Just lacking that slam run so far although quarters in US and French were good efforts. Looked strong in the early rounds and who knows if he'd won the first sets in those respective quarters which he should've done.

Rublev's serve has also gotten enormously better this year it seems judging by the stats. Can anybody who has watched him frequently verify?

extremely good, exciting player, definite Slam possibility.... but his 'bweeeeee' shriek, and switching it on and off, is becoming annoying as fck.

Only Djokovic has won more matches on the tour this year.

Rubes done well sweeping up the 250s this year and probably not finished yet. Next step is masters and a slam SF within next two years.

I presume he's in WTF so given the "shock" winners in last 3 years he might have a run at that aswell.

The onIy “shocking” winner in last few years being Dimitrov but when your SF & finaI opponents r Sock & Goffin, not so shocking. Unusually aberrant season.
