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.

Good assesment but I would put him in the second group (Lendl and company) tied with Agassi and Lendl.
