Thought he was born in January rather than November - even so, two months is kind of a moot point IMO.

Safin by a mile. He is treated like a god by some on here and while winning 2 GS is undeniably impressive, beyond that, he achieved relatively little. He also came across as a spoiled brat most of the time.

Re: Most Over-rated/Over-hyped players on this forum

Pistol Mugpras

Some here make him out to be a god, pah! A mug servebot got exposed good by Hewitt & co, only ever beat his GIMPs Andre, Goran and Chang. Terrible on clay, a good joker, what a hopeless fail, disgraceful vulturing of first Wimbledon from grass mug Courier.

So boring that tennis became a regular in care homes to send patients to sleep. The 80s had Connors, JMac, Lendo, Becker, Edberg, Wilander, the 90s had Mugpras and his cronies. Disgusting clown.

On Murray

Ballbasher Nation (Del Potro, Mugbych, Tsonga)
1 slam, 2 finals, 2(?) Masters, 1'WTF F

That's it basically. He never beat or even pushed any of the current top 8/10, his game is one dimensional and he can be overpowered in ridiculously easy fashion (not just by big hitters). In short, he's a potential good ATP player, never a threat at the highest level by any stretch of the imagination. He's just overhyped because he loves Federer. I'm not kidding when I say he literally never did anything else btw, not even a 250 SF to show for.
Goffin has had a grand total of one (!) season on the ATP tour, and in that season he went from a ranking of 174 to a ranking of 46. I really don't think it is reasonable to expect more than that. In the slams he lost to Federer, Fish and Berdych respectively, who are all in or around the top 10.

In Djokovic's first season he didn't make the QF in a single ATP event, and reached no further than R32 in the slams.

Yea, with a minor difference that Djokovic was 18 in his first season and Goffin is 22

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Okay, with Soderling Ballbasher Nation has;

4 runners up in slams, 9 semis reached(?) 3 masters, 1 Final.

Queen Mugray OBE still wins. (he even has more semis 10 no?)

Different players mature at different rates. My point is that there is only so much progress you can make in a single season. Whatever age your first season is, you're still going to be massively inexperienced.
