Is peak Nieminen the most underrated player on the planet?

In my mind, maybe.

People talk about Federer being the GOAT but could he double bagel a good player like Goffin? I don't think so. Nieminen at his peak is unplayable as proved today.

Peak Nieminen beating a FedererBot surely makes him the best Tennis player ever.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Probably trolling, but anyway, Federer double bageled Gaudio at a year end tournament. So Goudio must have been top10 there.
