Is Chris Guccione simply the worst top 100 player ever?

Guccione was a serve bot with nothing else than that and maybe a few volley's, I don't know who else but I'd say there is very little players on the tour with a winning record against Nadal even though the win was 6-5 Retirement in the first set. Also has made two ATP 250 finals with a career high ranking of 67 and career win loss record at 250 level and above is 44/63.

So my question is quite simple is he the worse player to ever make top 100?

There were plenty of players in the Open Era with a career high of exactly 100 that were far worse players. This is obvious...

my comment was deleted but the dumbass thread wasn't?

I'll put it so clearly so you humourless clowns don't misunderstand me then:

"No"

He's filth, worse return ever, has no ground strokes and barely can serve 210km these days, complete sack.

Get out. Leave.. you are not welcome here and have made several enemies... You shouldn't even joke about this but I can tell you are being genuine. The amount of jealously that resides within you is astonishing...

Re: Is Chris Guccione simply the worse top 100 player ever?

Gooch is plenty good. He's just not really interested in selling out to the ATP Tour.

Sometimes he makes a cameo appearance in the big money events just for the dollars - like Sam Rockwell or Gary Oldman - but his heart's not really in it. He prefers playing indie gigs in Challengers and Futures - better atmosphere and none of these shitty casual fans that you get at Masters and Slams. Guys like the OP rock up to the glamour stuff, buy the t-shirt and cheer for the big names, but they don't appreciate real tennis.

Keep your rankings points and your big clothing label sponsorships. Kicking it ITF style is all about the game, yo.

I was assuming Chris was a MTF hero, but seriously why is everyone so upset on the OP? He may be either trolling or seriously thinking Chris is not ATP TOP 100 material, which should not shake your beliefs at all. Deciding to ignore him is the best thing to do instead of "feeding" him.

MTF new rule (should be added as #1 in that MTF rule list): MTF FEEDS THE TROLLS

These days sure which is why he's currently not top 100. Back when he was he was a decent player.

These days I'm sure Gooch could beat Conners, doesn't mean Conners was a complete sack

He's beaten Berdych before, so no.
