For me, Djokovic is now ahead of Wilander, Becker and Edberg.
He is still a bit short of the Lendl/Connors/Agassi/McEnroe tier though (and some way short of Fed/Sampras/Borg/Nadal).
Thus I would rank him 9th in the Open Era at present.

Sounds just about right. I think he'll likely rise higher over the next few years.
