Is Raonic the most underrated player on MTF?

He's the youngest guy in top10 and not not just serve, anymore. He reached a final Masters and nearly another one yesterday. His offensive FH is a real weapon and, in last months, he's really improved his return. Recently, he's far from hopeless in his return games and wins many points as agrresive baseliner. He seems sensible and full of self-control and isn't a choker.

He may never be no.1, but he's a talented guy, doing well and deserving respect, esp. as the rest of young guns like Tomic, Dimitrov, or Janowicz are clearly less successful.

On the other side, there's ridiculous hype over mediocre player like Gulbis, who's few years older, can't get further than 2nd round in Slams and never was in top10.

argument.

Lord knows I despise Fakervic, a truly detestable individual, but at least the guy has some balls. Murray is a pussy whipped man-child, an embarrassment to the human race and living proof that evolution isn't all that it is made out to be. If he had any dignity he would retire now rather than face further humiliation.

He has turned a corner at the end 2013. Its apparent most of MTF doesn't watch him that's why they were surprised by what they saw.

14 Grand Slams -
27 Master Series - Indian Wells(3), Monte Carlo(8), Madrid/Hamburg(4), Rome(7), Canada(3), Cincinnati(1), Madrid/Shanghai(1)
Davis Cup Champion - 2004, 2008, 2009, 2011
Olympic Gold Medalist - 2008
ATP Weeks at No.1 - 141

Re: Is Raonic the most underrated player on MTF?

Maybe he is. On the other hand Gulbis hype is something i just don't get. Good player but nothing really special. Also disgusting person with annoying attitude. Also spoiled brat with rich parents. So everything i hate in a person. Except for his country fellows from Latvia i don't get how can you be his fan.

He is hard to watch though. I don't think a single player takes more time between first and second serves than Raonic. Ball bounces for ages.

LOL funny but actually true. Seems like he is so bad he is going to lose all matches and even when he is favourite and wins, he always plays bad and anti-tennis and yet the guy is already 13-time slam winner and currrent numeber 1 of the world. I wonder how other guys play. Must be club level.

Proud fan of:

Sporting Clube de Portugal, Fútbol Club Barcelona, Newcastle United Football Club, FK Vilniaus Žalgiris
