Federer is overrated, MAJORLY!

Radek Stepanek
09-17-2006, 02:08 AM
I'm telling you, he is overrated. He isn't as good as players in the past. Like Lendl was SO much better than him, when he was around. So was Borg, and Sampras, and I even think Nadal is better than Federer. Believe me, he will catch up to all these silly records Federer holds.

Also, part of tennis is appeal, and he just doesn't excite me, he doesn't make me want to watch tennis. In fact, he bores me. If tennis is losing popularity, it should be blamed on Federer, the only thing that makes Federer interesting is his rivalry with Nadal. Which, btw, shouldn't even be a rivalry, considering Nadal DOMINATES it 6-2.

Stepanek is the best!

Domination is a gap of more than 2400 points in the ranking.
9 GS is a big sign of being overrated. It sure is. :rolleyes:

Radek is one of my choices to the QF of the arseclown tournament.

Roger Federer is not ovverrated not when the guy wins nine yes nine slams and he's only 25 years old. Roger's been no.1 for three years in a row. We have been waiting for someone in this new generation to emerge and its Federer. Andy Roddick he's the one that's overrated. What has Roddick done? Not much. How about James Blake or should I say James the flake? What has he done absolutely nothing. Blake is the most overhyped player I have ever seen. I think Blake's hype has more to do with his background then his tennis results. I agree 110% with Vince Spadea's book he's correct Blake is a phony and pretentious and he's mentally weak. Blake's 0-9 record in five set matches shows exactly how he's a chump in the big matches.

Roger Federer is a gazillion miles ahead of his so called competition. Hewitt look at that loser where is he now? And what about Fererro and Safin? Look where they are now at the bottom of the pit. A few years ago everyone was saying Hewitt was this and that and Safin was this and that. Yet when Hewitt was no.1 he wasn't dominating. When Kuerten was no.1 he wasn't dominating either. Roger Federer is truly amazing he is dominating with an Iron Fist. Roger has already passed Lendl and Agassi and Connors. The results don't lie. Roger has NINE grand slams and all those other legends have EIGHT. At the age of 25 Roger already has ACHIEVED MORE.
If anyone that has a lot to prove its Andy Roddick , Hewitt, Safin,. Blake he's just a media creation a player that has proven he's a nothing and results don't lie. Vince Spadea is correct in his book about Blake.

What . . . what are you talking about? Don't use this thread, to display your hatred for Blake. It's about Federer. Don't go on crazed rants about other overrated players.

BTW. I am not doing this to win the Arseclown contest. I didn't even know I was actually in it!

The other players are mad at Vince because there is some veracity to his comments. Notice no one is suing Vince at all. Spadea says Roddick reminds him of Michael Chang and he's correct. Andy just isn't as talented as the Europeans. And as for Blake well read Vince's book he tells the truth about Blake in print. Robby Ginepri was very upset about Vince's book because he says "secrets should stay in the lockeroom." And Ginepri was nothing more then an American pretty boy. A lot of players were upset about Vince's book because he's telling the truth. They just can't handle it.

Roger might bore you, but I find him extremely sexy and a thrill to watch. Everyone has their own taste. Tennis isn't losing popularity except for those who only like to have someone from the US be on top. You say Roger is not a good player then why has he beaten more top 10 players on all surfaces than any current player? Roger isn't the one who was beaten by Youznhy in the QF of the USO.

Lendl psychological quality is not so good.

In 1982, he won 15 titles and win-loss rate is 106-9, but he can't got any Grand Slam title.

In 1984, he edged JMac in RG for his 1st Grand Slam title, he was 24 at that times. (Before RG final 1984, JMac had 43 winning streak and 5 straight win against Lendl).

Roger Federer at the age of 25 is already in the history books he's won more slams then Lendl, Agassi, Becker, Connors, Wilander, McEnroe, Edberg, in their entire careers. Roger has already passed these legends with his superior talent and excellence. Roger Federer is already a legend and he has a place in tennis history. Unlike his so called peers such as Roddick, Hewitt and Safin, Fererro. These guys look a lot over hyped to me. They have proven nothing special in their careers. Even Kuerten is better then Roddick and Hewitt and Safin at least he managed to win three majors.

Excuse me bottom of a pit? Thats a bit harsh dont you think considering the major injuries Marat and Ferrero have suffered. I dont see Roger injured and having to make come backs that mean spending lots of time recovering .
i.e in marats career he has spent so much time away due to injury, so your point regarding those two is invalid.

yes they have had their injuries...but fed was on crutches last year during the indoor season as well. federer does a lot of flexibility exercises so if he stretches something a little more than usual, it doesnt turn out too terrible. players can take precautions. as far as im aware ferrero had the pox, and was not injured.

safin is a big guy, 6-5, and is always likely to have more injuries than anyone else. other big guys are suffering like pim pim, krajicek in the past, the poo. thats tennis sometimes. it is a pity, but according to marat, he has no pain in the leg now and is 100%. hopefully he comes back to the top.

This injury was hardly serious it didnt casue Federer to loose his ranking or be out of the game for a significant period of time. Where as Marat and Ferrero have spent chunks of time away from the court due to their injuries, especially marat who is sick of making come backs.

I dont want to casue a stir or anything , but I think what I am saying is the fair thing, and even if Marats knee is better he is out of confidence at the moment- something players can get from being away from the game and having bad losses due to that.

Someone who's pushed to the moon with massive amounts of compliments and publicity and all of that stuff without the results to back it up would be the definition of being overated.

I know personality doesn't matter in the game of tennis when it comes to winning, but if he had some spunk and charisma on court, I would probably be his fan.

I'm sitting with my non-tennis friends, and we're watching tennis and it's Roger playing. They are very preoccupied, not really watching, bored to death at what a predictable and boring match it is. Nadal, the next match on, and they were interested. This is what made me write this thread, I wish I could get my friends to enjoy tennis and watch it more.

Well, when you think that he has no charisma on court, then this is your opinion. I can only speak for myself that I enjoy it to see Roger on court because he shows grace. He remembers me on Edberg and Rafter who were the same kind of personality.

What a pity that you didn't pay attention to the great shots Roger always has in his matches. I enjoy his kind of performance, because he doesn't only dominate the tennisscene, but also brings the beauty of the game to the court.

If you call his matches predictable you should maybe blame his opponents for not challenging Roger enough ;)

Is he really overrated if we already know that he'll win at least a few more majors? The important thing about tennis is that the ball is faster even when they try to make the courts slower(wimby).

Nadal is a player, and a dangerous one to play, because he makes your shot uncomfortable. Roger is SUPER-DEADLY, he'll fake a down-the-line and rip a crosscourt. Just look at his nose (lol :p ) He's a thinker, a "smart" tennis guy, and he knows a player front and back by playing a single set.

Roger's rivalry with Nadal will be fun, but he still dominates tennis, and he will for at least 2 years. And he'll beat Stephanek when they play, too. (Why did Hingis have to date him? :confused: )

Yeah but the pumped up routine looks old after a while. It looked new the first year he was yelling "Vamos" but now it's too predictable.

Why I dislike his tennis is that his technique is ugly. He has too put so much effort and grunting in the strokes that other players can hit with ease. This is all because he leans backwards and hits off of his back foot. He has to put a lot of muscle into his shots to make up for his bad form. It's really sickening. I never watch Nadal.

And as for charisma......Nadal can hardly speak Spanish let alone English. He never makes any sense. Where's the charm in that?
