Does anyone think he is kinda overrated? I mean he has played well at times and I am a big fan of his but when you are considered one of the world's top players, it is pretty unacceptable to go 1-7 versus TOP 10 PLAYERS in 2005.

Anyone else think that he doesn't do anything against top players? Still like the guy but he is a tad bit overatted in my opinion.

Thoughts?

I don't like him but I still don't agree that he's overrated. It would be a shame if he never won the French Open because he is so damn brilliant on clay.

sure he is brilliant but being 1-7 versus TOP 10 PLAYERS is not worth of a TOP 10 position if you ask me.

I could understand being 0-2 or maybe 2-3 or something like that but being 1-7 is ridiculous. Jose Acasuso and Ivan Ljubicic both have more wins against TOP 10 opponents this season.

so who did he actually beat?

well outside of the TOP 10 it really doesn't matter. So of his 44 wins or whatever, only 1 came against a top caliber opponent. That means show me the money on his opponent next time he faces a TOP 10.

Ljubicic has beat Nadal,Roddick and Agassi this year. Tojo at one point might of been top 10. Henman 2.

Yeah, the "what is your record against other top ten players" is another thing that is taken into consideration when determining the ATP rankings, along with "how many blow jobs have you given us recently?".

It's not now. But there were quality points a few years ago.

Quality points are junk, imo ;)

Unless anybody expects Coria to be defeating Andy on grass, Hewitt on hardcourt, and Federer anywhere... then no, he's no overrated.

Dumb thread :p

But isn't the point of the thread that if you're going to be a top 10 player you should be able to beat Andy on grass, Hewitt on hardcourt, and Federer anywhere? ;) :p

An interesting stat nonetheless

Federer would have huge quality points if they were still around.

I don't think Coria is overrated because nobody touts him as being at the very top of the game i.e. top 5 player.
