Worst masters 1000 winner since...?

With Dimitrov winning in Cincinnati, who was the last player to win a masters 1000 title who was worse than Dimitrov?
Tommy Robredo 2006? No one else comes to mind.

Mantilla 2003 was certainly the last time a player with a lower career high than Dimitrov has won one.

Some random guy just watching tennis.

Probably Robredo or Ljubicic.

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Dimitrov was #11 before Cincinnati. Last time a lower ranked player won
was in Rome this year. (Zverev #18)

But why do we need such an 'insultive' title?

Did you see the draw and how many Top players played in it?

Re: Worst masters 1000 winner since...?

If you are talking about accomplishments, then yes, every single 1000 winner between Robredo's 2006 Hamburg and Dimitrov's Cincy has greater accomplishments than Dimitrov.

But Grigor's career is not going to end soon, health permitted, so his career could very well be ending up greater and more accomplished than some of those winners as well as Robredo.

Edit: oooppssss I totally forgot about Zverev.
And Dimitrov's overall career is arguably better than Zverev, we are strictly speaking about tennis accomplishments to this date.

Ljubicic had a Master and three masters finals, with comparable slams achievements, and went on to #3 albeit for a short time.
His doubles accomplishments dwarve Dimitrov's. He also has Olympics bronze. And Davis cup.

Any of the Big 4 was worse , big-results wise.

Before the masters title:

Dimitrov 2 GS SF + 1 GS QF + 3 Masters SF

Murray 1 GS QF + 4 Masters SF
Nadal 1 GS 4R + 1 Masters F
Djokovic 1 GS QF + 1 Masters F
Federer 2 GS QF + 1 Masters F

You're right the title might be a bit harsh, I didn't mean to be insulting, but it is a valid question - I can't think of a less capable player than Dimitrov who has won one in a long time.

I'm trying to think who is a worse poster than you but I can't think of one.

Yes, I did. Felicano Lopez, del Potro, Sugita, Isner and Kyrgios.

But why is that a reason to name him the worst Masters winner in years?
You could say: lowest ranked; lowest career high; easiest draw/not beating
top 10 players etc...

All those who watched Mantilla playing know he was actually 100x more talented than Nadal.

Re: Worst masters 1000 winner since...?

A. Zverev had very similar, easy path to the Rome title this year:
R1: Anderson on clay
R2: Troicki who is bad recently
R3: Uninspired Fognini
QF: 2017 Raonic on clay
SF: Isner on clay
F: very subpar Novak

But does it make you bad? I don't think so.
