Re: Most Over-Rated player of 2012 is....?

Probably Barthel (who is not exactly overranked). She has inmense potential (and i think a lot of people see that), but her results are not matching that potential. Mid year she seemed ready to do the next step in her progression, but then she started to lose every first round at GS, and not doing well in other tournaments either

How is Radwanska overrated when every second person in the forum hates her?

I would say Mona Barthel is overrated now in hindsight even though I was on her bandwagon.

"Radwanska is equal to Del Potro" .... " Radwanska is real tennis" .... A number of tennis specialist like Matt Cronin and Steve Tignor are always overhyping her. But she is still the one, who is waiting easy draws or ill-Kvitovas

Barthel, Ivanovic, Kvitova, Goerges.

Radwanska? On TF she is underrated (because of haters), but everywhere apart Polish press she is rated good.

Mona Barthel
● Hobart '12 ● Paris '13 ● Bastad '14 ● Prague '17 ●

Radwanska has such good hands that she would probably at least be competitive in any era. Even in this era, the age of the power hitters, where the odds of someone with her particular set of skills doing well are against her she's still doing great.

Oh and I gotta go with Lepchenko as the most overrated player this year.

radwanska, a weaponless pusher who only avoided an embarassing scoreline defeat at the wimbledon final due to serena choking

no-way will she get a slam, I doubt she will even reach another final because if the top 3 are playing anywhere above 70%, pushwanska is toast

she is so successful because playing versus powerhitters on surface good to defend , she is perfect player designed for this era , a contemporary spoiler

She is absolutely useless against other creative players

Re: Most Over-Rated player of 2012 is....?

The don't get how Barthel is overrated? she was doing quite well at the start of the season and gave Vika a run for her money twice. I'd say she has potential but nothing more at the moment.

She does better on faster surfaces though Look at her record on clay.
