Ferrer is certainly the most overrated player in the tour. Pundits and journalists always tell us how talented and dangerous he is, but he rarely makes an impact in slams. Have to admit he's done very well this year though. I was surprised by how well he did at Wimbledon, but was thrashed by a clearly superior player. I'd say overall he's the 6th best player in the world.
1 Ferrer's nowhere near the most overrated on tour.
2 Pundits are incredibly dismissive of Ferrer: he's a 'fighter' or 'terrier' and that's it.
3 Journalists don't even know who he is.
Ferrer is so "overrated" that journalists cannot compliment him without simulteanously insulting him. And that's for those who bother to mention him at all.
They find him so "dangerous" that when Tsonga's draw came out for the French all the journalists in France were all
and going on about how Tsonga "only" had to beat Federer and had "no one else" in his draw
