Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Tommy Haas is a good ball hitter but he is not a tactical wizard. He plays as if the sun was the ball and has no idea that an error can ever happen.

have you watched any of his matches? He tricks you into thinking that bue if you look deeper at his game you can see the dumbness. His close losses aren't mental they are tactical.

His close matches are due to his opponent playing just a little bit better, that's all. Haas isn't anywhere near the best tactician, but he's NOWHERE near the worst.

Also, edit your signature. Murray's won 2 slams already.

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

I'd say there are many tactically stupid players, mostly ballbashers, L.Mayer, Chardy, Gulbis,Rosol etc., but also youngsters which haven't got the routine of the top players Djokovic,Murray,Nadal,Federer, the youngsters can improve their tactics, but the ballbashers will always ballbash and won't change anything

The 23 real GOATs Tommy Haas - Philipp Petzschner - Guillermo Garcia-Lopez - Ernests Gulbis - Lleyton Hewitt - Albert Montanes - Mikhail Kukushkin - Pablo Andujar - Fabio Fognini - Benoit Paire - Jürgen Melzer - Tobias Kamke - Philipp Kohlschreiber - Florian Mayer - Leonardo Mayer - Alexandr Dologopolov - Sergiy Stakhovsky - Igor Sijsling - Jarkko Nieminen - Simone Bolelli - Santiago Giraldo - Peter Gojowczyk - Adrian Mannarino

Re: Most tactically stupid player on tour?

Lopez is a strong contender. He just hits the ball without any plan whatsoever.
