  1. Raonic is my pick for the 10th place instead of Anderson.

    • Murray’s win rate: 79%
    • Del Potro’s win rate: 74%
    Their win rates in 2010s are pretty amazing, very consistent.

  2. Thank you. While the top three are clearly above the rest, statistics show that Nile was, for the decade, at the head of the class.
