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.

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

Not sure on this but was thinking maybe Istomin?
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.

Andreev is back in the top 100 as of this week...

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.
