This is stupid, if they don't have much in their arsenal and play one way (the best way for them) how can they be dumb tactically?

Isner is brilliant tactically, makes the most of his game very well.

Someone who is bad tactically is definitely Monfils, who can do almost anything on a tennis court but for some reason chooses to moonball and dive around like a maniac.

If anyone remembers Monfils playing aggressive, they would be rather confused. The guy could be a monster if he wanted

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

I was surprised Monfils wasn't an option, given when the thread was created. Tsonga may have moments of stupidity but Monfils plays whole matches this way.

I'd say of the options Gulbis but so easy to say when a guy can't win a match if his life depends on it. I actually don't get why a few of these are even options. Berlocq doesn't have much game but he wins matches so I can't really think of him as stupid.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

Sometimes life is cruel and the gods make a mockery of us. For instance, endow a player with great physical and athletic abilities but give him the mind of forest gump, or in the tennis world: monfils.

That crucial spin-around fail at the FO against djoker a few years ago showed his clown GOAT potential before his injuries.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

should we add blake to the list? he was a fairly reckless, mindless ball blaster.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

I picked Blake for bad strategy because he is a speedy player who never plays well from defensive positions. Most bad strategy players are unlike blake but rather like Roddick and Isner who just tend to push the ball back.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Monfils mix of extreme pushing and then all of a sudden starting to bash the ball as hard as he can puts him quite high on this list. Tsonga is also quite stupid.
