I'd just like to say that I don't believe Daniela is overrated at all. Nobody expects her to beat anyone ranked above her, and no one expects her to lose to anyone ranked below her. Therefore I think she has a fair representation.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

If she doesn't get her act together to defend her hardcourt points, she won't be in the top 20 for much longer.

I forgot to mention..
Overrated- Ivanovic
Underrated- Jankovic

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

underrated:
Sveta (hello!!! RG final and yet none of the "experts" even mention her name with regard to US open winner)

Schnyder-talent personified

overrated:
Clijsters, Sharapova-great players but commentators do constantly praise them, they can never do wrong, it bugs me-they both have weaknesses but they're never mentioned

It depends on the view.
Overrated: there were some - i.e. Francesca, Nadia, Sania, Ana, Alicia...
Underrated: Nastya, Vera Z, and Marta

THE COMEBACK of Lindsay Davenport
the purest striker of the ball

Aga&Ula Marta Masha Vee&Ree Ana Nastya Eleni Patty Mary

Under-rated
Eleni Daniilidou (damn injuries and inconsistency )
Schnyder (it seems like she is starting to get the recognition she deserves)
Lindsay Davenport (Love her but she can be a head case sometimes)

Over-rated
Without any dominant player in the womens field, it's not easy to say. I think the reason Petrova would seem over-rated is b/c she's really the only one who has failed to live up to her potential in majors this year. At least Mauresmo and Clijsters have already won their big one.

I actually don't think Sharapova is over-rated. I think she just is a very visible athlete in the world - the commercial deals (obviously based on looks first, then talent), her being one of the highest payed women in sports, plus she's a consistent competitor. I hear the commentators on ESPN talk all the time about Maria needing to come in to the net more and at least being a mediocre mover around the court.

I would say that there are more over-rated tennis players on the mens side.

overrated: sharapova, vaidisova, mirza.

underrated: schnyder, kuznetsova, perry.

i think patty is starting to be viewed more as a threat on tour with her recent results. hopefully she can continue to play well throughout the rest of the summer.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

underrated because no one talks about them including me: julia shruff, king, medina garrigues (no one talks about her, nor do i and she is 19th in race), santangelo, srebotnik, dominguez lino, castano, safarova, muller, yuan, savchuk, and zakopolova (she changed her name).
