Yeah that's why he lost like 17 matches in a row, smart outside the box thinking.

The facepalm smiley is just not enough to describe you.

Poll is a joke and only contains players the OP personally doesn't like.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Either Monfils or Golubev I would say. An honourable mention is Roddick with his approach shots

Nalbandian doesn't deserve to be on this list but lately he's been doing too many careless drop-shots.

Game over. Forever.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

LOL no Verdasco on the list

He's the ultimate bad tactician and wrong decision maker, while he's up there in the top 5 of talent for this sport.

Verdasco is my number one, then i'm tempted to fo for Tipsa, despite he grew a lot in this department these last 12-18 months.

You seriously need to stop talking about Federer because you seem quite clueless. How is one loss "being owned" when Fed has multiple victories against him .

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Ive been seeing harrison and he is rising in my book. Dumb guy. Way behind baseline and pushes like he a shopping cart owner.

Golubev will rise

Agreed. Nadal has the intelligence of a donkey and the skills of a squirrel on crack. Everyone knows this robotic cyborg is controlled by Tio Toni and his fleet of cloud seeding choppers.

On Murray

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

3. Murray wins US Open 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by [pending]. Thanks [pending]!

Because he displays absolutely no tactical sense when he is on court?

Just tries to blow people off the court every single time.

Troicki. The guy can play decent but can't think on court to save his life.

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

nobody mentioned paire yet. He produces some of the dumbest decisions I've seen out of a player, yet there are moments of brilliance.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Djokovic and Murray are very tactically poor.

I don't like Nadal.
