Under ranked players

Inspired by the over ranked players thread,

Name me some players who are under ranked considering their talent level. For me, I immediately think of guys like Andreev, Golubev, Muller, Gulbis, Malisse, Rochus, Dancevic who are severly under ranked.

Andreev is top 100 material.
Golubev is top 50 material considering his power game.
Dancevic is top 100 material.
Gulbis should be top 20.
Muller should be top 40 imo.

Nalbandian and Davydenko

Technically speaking, Golubev and Gulbis should be ranked higher, but they are ranked where they are for a reason: no mental game.

Well he is top 50 material and he is just about to surpass his previous best ranking of like 39. Could be top 30, but honestly, for someone listed only 6'2" his footwork is kind of poor.. I mean he hulks around like he is Isner's height sometimes yet Del Potro moves 1000 x better than him. However, he does have a very clean all-around game regardless.

Sounds about right!

There is no such thing as being under ranked or over ranked. Everyone is where they are for a reason.

I disagree. Luck plays a large part in players' careers and therefore ranking.

It's easier to think of over ranked examples, like Chela. He was unseeded at last year's Roland Garros. Had he drawn Nadal first round he would've lost and therefore had 350 less points. Putting his ranking at 57 instead of 32. Not to mention the extra advantages he gained from that RG run; particularly (higher) seedings hence easier draws.

injury prone players are often under ranked, for obvious reasons.

How is Kontinens health these days? Such a shame that a talented guy like that probably will never make it to the show.

Thanks, good news.

Hopefully he will be able to get into some quali draws on grass. Will he get a protected ranking?

Can make any excuse for a player you like or hate using the luck argument.

yeah, he can use it since last week, but his PR is like 400 according to his words so it wont be so useful
he is planning to play on clay in the beginning (maybe to protect his knee)

You can look at it that way but I like to think it balances out throughout the players career. I'm sure Chela has received a nightmare draw somewhere along the line where he instead could have been given a smoother passage through a few rounds, therefore improving his ranking.

the fact that nalbandian is currently ranked 50 is ridiculous

he belongs in the top 20 and will wreak havoc like serena williams did while she was ranked low until his ranking climbs back up again
