Very good comparison (height, huge serve but retired-Poussis and Raonic are serve and volleyers...not players who dominate at rallying/staying in the back of the court...so they have their limits).

BUT...

Raonic made it to the finals, so that's amazing.
10th in the world...also amazing.
He can reach top 5 but he will have to go far (rack up lots of points) at Wimbledon and do well in the pre-Wimbledon tournaments as well as hard-court tournament (US Open and pre-US Open tournaments)...get as many points as he can during those tournaments since he may not do so well on clay courts but I can be proven wrong).
