Default Most Underrated & Overrated

I like making threads. And I hate only having 8 posts right now. So here goes . . . I noticed there was a thread similar to this, but based on how players look. This one is based on their game. The rankings today don't exactly represent how skilled certain players actually are.

Overrated

Nalbandian
Blake
Safin (Sorry, but he sucks now)
Robredo
Haas
Gaudio - riding on 1 GS title, get outta my face.
Baghdatis - strictly a GS player

Underrated

Stepanek - of course, no one has heard of him, he is top 10, how, im not sure
Davydenko - 32 tournaments? OH MY GAWD! Resilience.
Hbraty
Ljubicic - the real no. 2
Ancic
All the players in my signature I guess
Gasquet- his ranking is not reminisent of his talent
Murray - as of late . . . see above

Still smarting over those big losses to Baghdatis and Robredo this year, eh Radek?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Never mind son, you'll be pounding that killer forehand to Grand Slam glory any month now.

Seriously, I hope you're fit for the US Open.

Stepanek will be ready. Expect him to be at least in the Quaters.

Robredo is the second most overrated player nowadays... he's really nothing.

Well, there's no evidence that Robredo is good. He's there like Gonzalez was... they stay some time just because someone's got to be there and a player more worthy of it is recovering from some injury or on a bad form.

Default Re: Most Underrated & Overrated

Yeah. I'm sorry, you're right. If Robredo is overrated I guess Stepanek is too. Therefore, I declare them both underrated. It's tough being a Stepanek fan, so I feel you.

Thankfully the rankings system is results-based as opposed to being based on people's subjective opinions of players' talent/potential.
Amen to that.

Look at Davydenko, he is a top 10 player. Why? Because he plays tons of tournaments. There may be what some people consider to be 'more talented' players in lower rankings than him, but would they be able to play as many tournaments as Davy does without getting injured/ tired etc? Probably not.
