The No. 4 spot belongs to the reigning gold medalist from the Men's Singles at the 2012 London Olympics, Andy Murray. Yes. In case you have been under a rock or been away from any technological devices, Murray captured gold in the finals. He is the reason why No. 1 Federer is a silver medalist.

No. 6 is the animated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. No. 7 is Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic. No. 8 is Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia. No. 9 is Juan Martin del Potro, infamous for losing the 19-17 final set in the semis to Feder. Rounding out the Top 10 is Spain's Nicolas Almagro.
