I probably already said this, but Monfis definitely. Because he's about as fast as Nadal he can usually get to every ball to hit. He either hits the ball back to his opponent at a moderate pace, repeatedly, or goes for the wildest winner you've ever seen. He'll tire himself out on the wrong points, and while he'll physically recover in a game or two, he'll mentally go away. Then again, he just might not be able to hit shots very well.

It has to be you. It's too bad you can NOT play tennis nor any other sports. I think you sit on your couch and eat chips all day long. We all know you have a big mouth. Mods, I'd pay $5,000 if you ban this idiot.

Gasquet is far more tactically stupid than Monfils considering all the talent he has.
I would say Monfils did very well to get to the number 7 spot considering how limited he is in term of pure tennis talent (athletic talent is not the same as tennis talent).

Sadly, true tennis talent becomes more and more irrelevant these days with the slow courts and the massive fitness emphasis.

Where's Roddick on the list? He refuses to put the ball in the open court and keeps feeding it to his opponent's strength. Though, there are plenty of players out there that make similar mistakes.

I can see where you are coming from. I like Richie so much. I just can't figure out what is wrong with him. I've seen so many of his matches. Beautiful BH. Good shot maker. His FH is not too bad. He is moving well. It looks like he has it all, yet he can't win anything. I've expected him to have a very similar career as Novak and Murray but it's not happening

Any brainless ballbasher - eg Gulbis, Blake etc. When in trouble, plan B is to hit harder. Those guys would have thrived had they been playing on WTA.

Well he's very talented, but he isn't as tall or fast or strong as Murray and Novak. But he shares the mental issues that Novak had and Murray still has.

Also, other than the pressure of being baby fed, he doesn't seem to float like ballerinaFed, more scramble like a penguin.

I hope he does turn it around though, I love watching him play when he's playing well.

Easily Blake. He won't even make the slightest common tactical changes, such as altering return position when he's having trouble with a big server (perfect example was against Tsonga in Australia a couple years ago).
