I'm not sure if he's over-rated, but Donald Young has definitely not lived up to expectations. His game didn't translate at ALL from juniors to ATP.

I am pleasantly shocked, having fully expected this to be another 'Nadal is an ovverated claycourter' type thread. ;) For the record, I would say that though Andy Murray has potential, he is definitely overrated in the UK. In fact, the ONLY tennis news the stupid newspapers show is that featuring Andy Murray. It's always Murray this, Murray that, even if he's not playing.

Yes, that's because barely any people care about it so that's why it gets poor coverage in the papers here.

Donald Young. There are probably plenty of better Americans than him, but his parents and hype machine have touted him as the next sampras.

Undoubtedly Ljubucic.
He's actually made the semis of a slam as a top 5 player.
James Blake is a top 5 player without that distinction who has had not even good results on clay or grass.
He's quite overrated.

I'm confident that Blake would make a Grand Slam semi-final if he had to play Benneteau in the quarter-final (instead of Federer).

Ljubicic doesn't get that much hype, so I don't see how he can be that overrated. I realize many think he's an unworthy #3, primarily because he's ugly and somewhat unpleasant, but there are plenty of guys with worse hype/performance ratios. How about Marat Safin and Mark Philippoussis?

Really??? So when James' draw opened up for two straight French Opens what happened then?
So James can beat Benneteau at a slam on rebound ace, clay, or grass in a quarters even if he hasn't gone that far on either surface?
Federer might have gotten an nice draw but he's earned it by being number one for almost 3 years.
James doesn't have that privilege and likely never will.

Roddick. He has won only one tournament this year and had to beat no top 10 players to do so yet suddenly he becomes a favorite to win the Open.

Well in terms of media exaggeration of talent in the current scene, it's James Blake.

In terms of the youth it's Donald Young.

And all-time is most definently Arthur Ashe.

You can draw what you want about the media and it's goal from that.

Fed. However multidimensional, talented and dominating he might be, his achievements don't make him the greatest player of all time; still lots of fans, media and players keep calling him that.

The players i feel are overated although they have good results are Murray, Hewitt, Fish and Ginepri. I think that because that they are from influential countries in terms of media etc. that they get hyped and het media coverage which helps their confidence and makes them better. They get wildcards, good coaches etc
