It was a weak year by Pete's standards..But lets not kid ourselves to call the era "weak".
When a guy can miss half the year (Nadal) and still keep a top 4 ranking.. What the hell does that say about today's era?
Rafter being at #1 in the world isn't all that bad. He was one hell of a player in his prime (whipped on Roger more times then not) And if most guys today had to play vs. Rafter under faster conditions, they would be facing an uphill battle too
