Why is Monfils missing on the list?

The facepalm smiley is just not enough to describe you.

Poll is a joke and only contains players the OP personally doesn't like.
Golubev is tactically naive, which is a shame, as if he were tactically smart, he'd be at least a top thirty player. He's proved it in the past that he can do it.

Fognini being on this list is a joke. Very tactically astute, if you ask me.

Lately meaning for the past five years or so? That guy has been routinely pulling out those roulette-style drop shots for what seems like ages now. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that he's always out of shape.


Anyway, I agree with the mention of Monfils. He squanders so much potential by playing simply to get the ball back over the net. You can tell there's absolutely no thought process to it.

serve bots aside from serve are often quite stupid, pretty obvious really I guess.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

I don't know that Blake is tactically stupid. He is a somewhat limited player who optimized his strengths. Everyone used to look at his speed and say that he should add more defensive elements to his game, but maybe it's just not in him to be able to do so.

blake is certainly one-dimensional

fortunately he played in an era of fast courts, which suited his game, and had the tenacity to recover from personal issues to rise up the rankings. never went further than a quarter final though

despite his lack of a plan B in his game, he's a very likeable person.

unlike say...fish or roddick

Great call. Came here to "support" him. He could be so much better with better tactics/court positioning.
