Many felt that Lendl should have beaten Connors in their two USO finals, and that a healthy Borg would have beaten him in their second USO final. So drop Jimmy back down to 9.
Not saying all this is correct, but "shoulds" cut both ways.
Not to you in particular, but just to make a general point about injuries: sometimes they are freak accidents but sometimes they are the direct result of a player's style of play.
That's especially true in Nadal's case. IMO he's where he should be at this point in time, with 11 Slam titles.
