Under ranked players

Inspired by the over ranked players thread,

Name me some players who are under ranked considering their talent level. For me, I immediately think of guys like Andreev, Golubev, Muller, Gulbis, Malisse, Rochus, Dancevic who are severly under ranked.

Andreev is top 100 material.
Golubev is top 50 material considering his power game.
Dancevic is top 100 material.
Gulbis should be top 20.
Muller should be top 40 imo.

Re: Under ranked players

Technically speaking, Golubev and Gulbis should be ranked higher, but they are ranked where they are for a reason: no mental game.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Well he is top 50 material and he is just about to surpass his previous best ranking of like 39. Could be top 30, but honestly, for someone listed only 6'2" his footwork is kind of poor.. I mean he hulks around like he is Isner's height sometimes yet Del Potro moves 1000 x better than him. However, he does have a very clean all-around game regardless.

Re: Under ranked players

No one.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Under ranked players

There is no such thing as being under ranked or over ranked. Everyone is where they are for a reason.
