Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

There are so many clueless players out there, I don't think there are any really more dumb than others if they don't get tactics, if they don't get it they don't get it, one that sticks out for me is Tomic.

Agree. Tomic thinks he is crafty but he as dumb as camel food.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Any of the players who won't budge off the baseline and overplay rallies.. Monfils and Gasquet the two biggest examples. Dolgopolov and Blake have a tendency to go for too much and rack up errors on big points.

Dologopolov's errors
had so much potential if he didn't go for stupid shots on crucial points

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Roddick thought he was good enough to win with 3 match points vs. Verdasco on Rome clay.
He pointed to the ball mark & told the umpire to reverse his match point win. He got his wonderful wish. He lost the match.

This thread is about tactical inability, not good sportsmanship.

It is not unlikely that Nando would have checked out the mark himself by the way. Boo to the umpire to blurt out Game Set Match Roddick before checking the mark. Unprofessional.

Verdasco is not a tactically bad player.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

but you must make a distinction between players who have no tactical option at all and players who make wrong choices.
example: Tomic, Monfils make horrible choices while they could do something else instead. Harrison has one option only, Troicki, Llodra too. if it doesn't work, it's over. Golubev, Young have no tactics, just ballbashing to death and hoping their shots are winners. Pablo Andujar, Juan Monaco keep playing the same tennis even in defeat.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Almagro obviously ! He never comes to the net, while he's in the middle of the court...

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Ben makes a good point, and with that in mind, I would probably go with Clownfils or Almugro.
