"I think Querrey would be the favorite in at least some of these matchups, but fair enough. In any event, the point of this thread wasn't so much to assign Querrey a particular rank as much as it was to point out how shallow the pool of good grass court players is at the moment."
First of all, I'm not saying he's the 5th-best grass courter. I'm saying there aren't more than 4 players definitively better and posing the question whether he's the 5th-best (in a somewhat tongue in cheek fashion, no less, as indicated by the all caps). Do you think my very posing of the...

It's undeniable, in my view, that Safin left more on the table. He could've owned that post-Sampras, pre-Federer era (and even infringed on some of peak Fed's turf), whereas even if Delpo reached his potential and stayed healthy, he's probably still only the 4th-best player of his era at best...
I'm not sure he has a Thiem problem at Roland Garros (beyond the extent that Thiem is an excellent player and therefore always a threat). I'd like to see Thiem beat an in-form Novak under normal conditions before I say Novak has a problem. Thiem has yet to do so.
