I'd say a Top 15 year-end ranking is very likely (he's #13 in the Race now) with even Top 10 being reasonably possible. If he stays healthy long-term, I think a Top 5 ranking is probably inevitable at some point, although that's probably at least 2-3 years away.
Agreed. I don't see what is so terrible about losing to Monaco, a higher seed, on Monaco's best surface (and Raonic's worst surface).
