Raonic has done nothing and isn't even that young. Potro has not done anything for years. So who is more overrated?

One has no experience, the other still recovering mental form as result of lack of playing/injury. You take your pick on what is "overrated" here.

Del Potro of course...he is treated a big force in mens tennis but he only won 1 big tournament in his life(aided by Fed's choking) and has a losing record against every top player.........

So just because he isn't better than Federer/Djokovic/Nadal it makes him a shit player? Nice logic.

I said Raonic because at least potro has actually achieved something big, but this is true aswell.

What? Can you type that in a more coherent sentence?

The fact that you actually agree he is overrated, obviously infers he isn't great. Neither are overrated, they get ranked properly for the most part. Del Potro was after all the very first person to beat Nadal/Federer at the same time for a slam title, regardless of how much "luck" was required to do so, only Djokovic has managed to do this one time as well.

there are other players who potro has a terrible head to head against, not just the three you mentioned. Don't see what part of that you are having trouble understanding to be honest.

He is overrated in a sense that he is over referred as a part of the "real BIG 4" saying he is better and greater than Murray which is not true.....

Isn't that embarrassing for them then that he can be so poor but when it really mattered most he was able to maximize his abilities over everybody else like Murray? Fact is Murray couldn't capitalize at the US Open 2009. He was going to face the same Nadal and Federer, but he faltered which gives even more credit to Del Potro. It is completely unfair to judge where Del Potro should be as he went through an injury. Murray, and many other players, don't go through an injury like his. Many players in history don't ever come back yet Del Potro still got back to the top 10. Plus, he has been unlucky with meeting Federer the past few months as Federer will always be a bad match up for him.

Fact is he is greater than Murray in the overall scheme of things when placing them in history. No, he isn't the real number 4 because he won't be consistent enough as Murray clearly the more consistent player but clearly Murray didn't have to have a dramatic injury like Del Potro, so it is very unfair to put any type of real expectations from Juan Martin.

Yes he is 21. Should we send him to the retirement home? How many other <21 year olds are doing better than Mr.Raonic at the moment?

Potro has not done anything for years.
Say what? He did a lot in 2009. Then he picked up a horrible injury and missed all but the very start of 2010. 2011 he was one of the biggest climbers in the rankings. And he's still only 23

So who is more overrated?
Probably no-one but out of the two Raonic by far. People see him as a future slam winner but he's got a lot to prove. Del Potro? He's been top5 in the world. He's won a slam. He's already a proven top player and has achieved more in his career than most players ever will. Question with him is more: Will he get back to his pre-injury form?

Del Potro is not overranked, he's overrated by people like you when you say he's greater than Murray. Maybe once upon a time he had a bigger successs, but not now and not since then. Fewer titles, lower ranked, terrible head to head against him.

And he is not still injured, and he hasn't been for a long time. Shit, Clijsters had a baby and came back and kept winning tournaments.
