ranking is what matters when you talk about 'calibre' ...
the seedings are drawn a bit before the AO, so players can still get points in tournaments before that ... that's what happened ...
again, I'll repeat :
I suppose fed should've lost to tsonga this year rather than beat him to get to the semi ... that would have made him a better player since he wouldn't be 'spoiling' his record vs the top4 players at the AO further
he should've lost to tipsarevic in AO 2008, simon in AO 2011 as well, right
that would've made him better in your opinion ?
